Resolved: Broccoli is the best vegetable
In this debate, I challenge Pro to defend his claim that broccoli is even worth eating in the light of that fact that the follow vegetable exists: Cauliflower.

BoP is on Pro, but I'll be asserting my own arguments anyways, so consider it shared.

Good luck.

Broccoli is good, but it's not the best. If you asked me, I would say zucchini is the best vegetable.
Debate Round No. 1

Thank you Pro for accepting.

My arguments:
1) Broccoli is bad for you.
2) Other vegetables are better for you


________________________________________________

1) Broccoli is bad for your health.
There is 141μg (176% DV) of vitamin K per 100g serving of broccoli, which is 52μg (65% DV) in an average spear.[1] This is enough vitamin K to cause deep vain thrombosis if the vegetable is eaten once everyday. So how can a vegetable be good at all if it has the potential to cause physical harm?

2) vegetables such as Kale are much better for one's health.
Unlike broccoli, Kale has antioxidant-related health benefits, anti-inflammatory health benefits, glucosinolates and cancer-preventive benefits, cardiovascular support benefits and other health-related benefits[2]

________________________________________________

Concluding, I have shown why broccoli is not the best vegetable, Pro must support his case as to why this is not true and support his BoP.

Have a good day.

An R1 concession AND an R2 forfeit? This man is a stupendous tactician.

I did, but I decided to use it as a rebuttal should he claim that broccoli is the best vegetable, hopefully he won't read this comment so it may still be a surprise

Conceding in the first round? What a brilliant opening gambit.
