Candy and soda shouldn’t be banned from school property. The government shouldn’t be the one to decide whether or not soda and candy should be eaten at school because no matter what they say student are still going to eat candy and drink soda. The obesity problem is not only to to the fact that student eat candy and drink soda
This is not accurate because it is not one product that is causing these health problems such as diabetes and obesity. Getting rid of just soda will not take away health issues. The soda ban is a bad idea because it limits people's opinions. ¨Ban the Ban!¨ the opinion piece by SidneyAnne Stone quotes, ¨When you take away my option to order a soda a certain size, you have now removed my opinions.¨(Stone pg. 288).
Not only does shaming people out of eating not work, but it also causes long term harm. Shaming people out of eating much like Nancy Reagan 's ”just say no” campaign, is not effective. The idea of “just say no” was that telling people not to do drugs they will not, similarly telling people not to eat unhealthily will fail to have an effect. Without incentive

Does root beer and other sodas need sugar warning labels? Some people think that soda needs to have warning labels because it is loaded with sugar. I disagree with this because people have a right to chose is they drink poison or soda or water. It is completely their choice. I don 't want people to tell me how fat I will be if I drink a can of soda.
It suggests that the government, but more specifically Congress, puts gun violence above the means of fighting against it. Even more so, it shows that gun violence reins over attempts to hinder it in any way and how Congress is weak because it consistently fails to effectively do anything about gun violence in America. However, congressional gridlock can be more than Congress’ refusal to pass laws that are important The United States’ wellbeing. It can be the slow-moving process of passing a law or bill to benefit Americans. For example, immigration reform has been being considered since past President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, as stated by The Washington Post (Nakamura, O’Keefe 4).
citizens, but these things are not worth gaining if it means causing much more harm than gain. Lowering the legal drinking age would risk in the health of younger drinkers and could result in much more traffic accidents. Overall, to keep young adults safe in the U.S. we must keep the legal drinking age at 21 years
After prohibition the states were left to decide how to govern alcohol consumption. Many states required that the legal drinking age be 21 although some required that a person be 18. By 1984 all US states required that the legal drinking age be 21. In conclusion, although the intention of the Prohibition Act and the age of prohibition was to improve the lives of citizens by reducing health risks, violence and crimes caused by alcoholism, it had the opposite effect. As such, the Prohibition Act and the ensuing age of prohibition did not succeed in reducing the consumption and abuse of alcohol but instead created a virtual “monster” that created more problems rather than finding
If I were to change one thing in my community, I would change the school lunches, because they taste horrendous, and they need to be healthier. First, the lunches should not be processed foods because those use a lot of chemicals that are harmful to the body. Some examples of processed foods are foods that come pre made or from a box or a can. Processed foods usually contain more con syrup and sugars, usually addicting and can make you gain weight,contains many artificial ingredients, high in carbohydrates, and uses lots of oils that are usually processed as well. Next, never use items with expiration dates within 3 days of eating because, you never know if something has already gone bad, like milk being chunky.
“New York City’s Board of Health today passed a rule banning super-sized drinks at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries.” (Doc A). Individuals in the United States are overweight because they do not know how to limit themselves. If the government were to control one of the main reasons people are obese, then several people would not be overweight because the government would take care of the problem. Banning sugary drinks over 16-ounces would help people lower their sugar intake, which would help people stay in excellent health. Although numerous amounts of people believe they should be able to make their own decisions, the government should be able to control what Americans are consuming because of children, health, and the future.
