air is good because
acrion

Con

Air is harmful because due to humans remarkable love of automobiles and fossil fuels we pump toxic chemicals like carbon monoxide (CO) into our atmosphere destroying the delicate balance of our ecosystem. This is why air or more accurately the manufactured products introduced into the atmosphere are "bad".

but air is one of the only things keeping us alive. without air we wouldn't be alive so it is good for us.
acrion

Con

Your previous statement is false. People do not need the air they need oxygen hence why they send oxygen to astronauts not compressed air. Also many compounds in air are toxic making it slowly kill you. Therefore air is harmful.

The human body requires these elements however the main element they cannot aquire through other sources is oxygen. Also air contains harmful carcinogenic compounds. Which pose the chance of damaging your body by caisong tumors. For example radon an airborn molecule causes over 20000 deaths a year. These chemicals are part of the air therefore making air dangerous and possibly lethal.
