    Chocolate

  • Presentation Outline INTRODUCTION

     Research Question: Should the government make chocolate illegal?

     Thesis: The government should make chocolate illegal for young

    children because it is addictive, harms health, and will lead to increased

    costs of the health care system.

    BODY

     Counter-arguments (Dary, Smith)

     Supporting arguments/ Support with examples (McKenzie)

    CONCLUSION

    Research shows that eating too much chocolate

    • creates health problems,

    • can lead to addiction, and

    • causes health costs to increase.

  • The

    Research

    Question

    Should the government make

    chocolate illegal?

  • The Thesis Statement

    The government should make chocolate

    illegal for young children because it is

    addictive, harms health, and will lead to

    increased costs of the health care

    system.

  • The Counter Argument

     Chocolate contributes to good health

    (antioxidants) (Dary 45)

     It makes people feel good (endorphins)

    (Smith 121)

     It can help you live longer (Smith 122)

     It can lower blood pressure (Dary 45)

  • The Supporting Arguments

     Chocolate is addictive

     It works like some drugs (nicotine)

     It contributes to health problems

     Health problems cost money

    (McKenzie et al 67)

  • The first

    support

    Medical studies show that chocolate works just

    like some drugs and causes craving for more.

    It is addictive and needs to be controlled

    (McKenzie et al. 67) .

  • An example

    Some studies have shown that the health problems

    caused by eating chocolate are similar to smoking.

    Smoking is now banned in most public places. So

    eating chocolate should be restricted, too.

  • The second

    support

    Furthermore, eating chocolate causes health

    problems such as obesity, diabetes, high

    cholesterol, and heart disease. These are all

    real problems that governments should control

    (McKenzie et al. 89).

  • The third

    support

    If no action is taken, more people will need

    hospital treatment to cure problems.

    Health care costs will increase and more

    hospitals will need to be built (McKenzie et al.

    90).

  • Concluding

    Arguments

    “The Government is responsible for protecting

    its citizens from harmful substances.

    Most of the evidence shows that chocolate is

    harmful, especially for younger children.”

  • Conclusion

    Research shows that eating too much chocolate

    • creates health problems,

    • can lead to addiction, and

    • causes health costs to increase.

    Therefore the best way to reduce the negative effects of chocolate on children is for the government to make it illegal for children under the age of 5.
