Should the Government Brake Our Bad Habits
Debate Rounds (3)
Should the government brake our bad habits? I say yes, why shouldn't we allow help from the government. Over the years people have gained more weight statistics show that in the year 2007 24.7% of the population was obese and in the year 2010 35.8% was obese so over the course of three years the population showed in extreme growth on over weight. Kids that are the future of this world are dying from over weight why shouldn't we allow the government to help if parents won't even help their own children. If the government would add to schools more activities like sports, better play grounds, and more rec centers then more of these children's health can be saved.
My opponent says that the government has done some changes for obesity like healthier foods. If that was so then how come school foods haven't changed and fast foods are still selling foods that are not healthy for one's body. In the United States more then 35.7% of adults are obese and 15.3% are children, why shouldn't parents allow that the government offers and allow the government to add more sports, play grounds, and rec centers for children so they will become healthier. Rob Eissler says that 34 children die each hour from being obese, is my opponent trying to say that we should keep having all these children to die then get the government to help. Obesity isn't the only thing killing human beings, but also the cause of cigarettes and how the government cut back on how much cigarettes a person can smoke. Each year around 6.5 million people die from smoking cigarettes. Millions of people die each year from getting cancer and people aren't willing to get help so would we rather have more dead bodies then a lived ones.
