Junk food shouldn't be banned because it tastes good.

Back to you.

Yeah it tastes good, but does it make you healthy. Goverment runs everything and sees every thing. Goverment should ban it because it is unhealthy. Most people don't even excercise after eating chips. Hello, where did"couch potato" start? I rest my case. (Have many points 'cause I have to do a real life debate Monday.)

Well will you please write out a few of your many points so that we actually have something to debate.

Yes, fast food is unhealthy, but that alone is no reason for it to be banned. Alcohol and cigarettes are also unhealthy. Should we ban them too? Car crashes kill people. Should we make cars illeagal? Mobile phones cause brain tumours. Should we ban them too?

What will happen to all those people who work in fast food restaurants?

You're going to have to do a lot better than "Goverment should ban it because it is unhealthy."

First of all, I never said I din't want to ban these.(Alcohol and cigarettes are also unhealthy. Should we ban them too? Car crashes kill people. Should we make cars illeagal? Mobile phones cause brain tumours. Should we ban them too?)

Yes I would. But that is not what this is about. This is about banning chips. I had not refrased it correctly. My pardon. You have a lack of energy, poor concentration, its also a major cause of heart diseases and has a high cholesterol. Many people don't know that. Heart disses is the world's biggest cause FOR DEATH. Also why don't you give reasons of why we shouldn't. I'm new.

"Also why don't you give reasons of why we shouldn't. I'm new."

You set up the debate. And I have given reasons.

Heres another: We are a free people. Banning all of these things takes that freedom from us.

We are a free people. Banning all of these things takes that freedom from us.
Ok. So I'll go to my 7 11 and scream "Pro saidI can do anything I want cause its a free couintry so I'll steal your money?"
NotPurpleHaze

Pro

Laws exist to limit our freedom so that we can be as free as possible without restricting each others freedom. The law you are arguing to have passed does not serve this purpose.

Peope don't know that Cheeto's is made of more than half than Fat. That's why. Many people are obesy cause of this. Most people won't stop eating until someone stops them.

This is one stupid arguement... Being on aff is easy... being on Neg is just plain stupid -.- this is like a one sided arguement. You could have made it a metaphorical Debate. which would have been better... i can see that this fails.
