Why you should go to school

It is very important to go to school. Everyone deserves an education as this will help you to get a good job. An education will stand to you for life.
A further reason is that school helps us to build friendships. It also helps us socially and prepares us for adult life.
Everybody likes to learn new things each day. We also like to learn about other countries and other languages. School is interesting and exciting.
I do not agree with people who say school is long and boring. I believe that our school days are truly the best days of our lives. It is vital that we go to school.

Why smoking is bad for you

Although not everybody would agree, I want to argue that smoking is extremely bad for you and could ultimately kill you. I have several reasons for being in favour of this point of view.
My first reason is smoking causes lots of diseases such as heart disease, lung cancer, throat cancer and many more.
A further reason is smoking is a bad influence on children and they may be tempted to try it out for themselves. Passive smoking is another reason why smoking should be made illegal because people are breathing in the smoke and have no choice in it.
Furthermore, one out of two dies from smoking related reasons and that’s a very frightening fact. So this is what smoking can do to you.
Therefore, although some people might argue that smoking a few cigarettes a day isn’t too bad, they’re wrong because any bit of tobacco is bad for you.
I think I have shown from my facts that smoking is very unhealthy.

How watching television affects your eyes

Although not everybody would agree, I want to argue that watching television will affect your eyesight in the future.
I have several reasons for promoting this point of view. My first reason is that a study carried out on watching television up too close affected the eyesight of 52% of children.
A further reason is when you are watching television, you are sitting on the couch and not getting any exercise.
Furthermore, if you spend all of your spare time watching television, you will not be able to play any sport or have other healthy hobbies.
Therefore, although some people might argue that watching television does not affect your eyesight, it is clearly not a good thing to spend a long time watching television as it is bad for your eyesight and for your health.

Why you should go to school again…

Although not everyone would agree with me on the following statements, I would like to argue that all children should go to school.
In order to give you a good chance in getting a decent job, everyone needs a good education; so it’s important to go to school.
In school, you can learn about things that interest you and you can also learn new skills.
Furthermore, you can make friends with other people the same age and you can learn to play all different types of sports. So, school can be fun.
This is why I think everyone should go to school.

Why fast food is bad for you

Although not everybody would agree, I want to argue that fast food is bad for you.
I have several reasons for supporting this point of view. My first reason is that fast food barely contains vitamins and minerals and it is not healthy food to eat.
A further reason is the fast food industry has added every chemical possible that they can legally get away with to addict people to their food.
Furthermore, fast food is high in fat, sugar and salt and can contribute to high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.
Therefore, although some people might argue that fast food is good for you, I think it is bad for you.
I think I have shown that you should not eat fast food.

Why Hunting is a Cruel Sport

Although not everybody would agree, I want to argue that hunting is a cruel sport towards animals. I have several reasons for supporting this point of view.
My first reason is every year there are thousands of hares killed. This sport is unnecessary, it’s cruel and it’s killing.
A further reason is that these animals are often taken from their habitats very cruelly and put in fields that are strange to them. When they are being chased by an animal they don’t know where to run.
Furthermore, people that do this sport for their own entertainment are not very caring people because they are watching animals suffer who can get badly injured and have to be put down.
Therefore, although some people might argue that they earn a living from this sport and others might argue that this is a tradition they want to keep, they think this is a good enough reason for this sport to continue.
I think I have shown that hunting is a cruel sport.

Why you should play the PS3 

I am here to explain to you why you should play the PS3. I have several reasons on why you should play the PS3.
My first reason is playing the PS3 is a very enjoyable way to pass time.
Also, one of the proven benefits of the PS3 is it improves your hand-eye co-ordination.
Another reason is by using the internet you can play on-line with your friends, which can help improve social interaction.
If you ever said the PS3 is a waste of time I think I have explained to you that the PS3 is not a waste of time and if you don’t have a PS3 you should go and buy one.
