I think we should be able to drink chocolate milk at school because it is very delicious for kids and also, its awe some because it also has healthy things inside it like vitamins and calciums. As for the sugar, you can just exercise to not get fat!!!

Why should my money go to feed someone else's kids to begin with?

Additionally, a lot of milk in the United States contains Bovine growth hormone, or bovine somatotropin. This could have negative effects on our precious little tax dollar drains (children).

First,
"Cows that are given bGH injections are more prone to health problems like lameness, reproductive trouble, and udder infections. When these cows are treated for infections with large doses of antibiotics, some of those antibiotics are likely to show up in the milk, especially because it usually takes longer to treat cows receiving bGH. While antibiotic residues themselves might not be cause for alarm, they can contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which is a serious, developing public health problem."

Second,
"Another concern is that injecting cows with bovine growth hormone may cause them to produce more of another hormone called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Animal studies suggest that elevated levels of IGF-1 in the bloodstream could increase the risk for some cancers, particularly colon and breast cancers. Government researchers and bGH manufacturers say that the presence of a little extra IGF-1 in milk doesn't put people at any extra risk for developing this cancers because " just like bovine growth hormone " IGF-1 is broken down by the human digestive system and never makes it into the blood. But opponents say that other studies show that IGF-1 survives digestion and passes into the intestines."

Thanks ducky.

Reasons for voting decision: Arguments: Con made an argument based on fact, while Pro only stated his opinion and a few reasons, and handwaved the sugar content issue with "you can just exercise", meaning that Pro did not meet his burden of proof.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to Con because Pro really only made it one round, so it was an easy win, because the argument Pro posted was bad. Con had a strong argument and included a source.
