1.6 Add and Subtract Decimals
A good persuasive essay:
Have you ever thought about how many junk food commercials are shown a day.Television is full of junk food commercials.America is starting to be overweight.Are commercials the problem for children,or is it something else?People are discussing if we should ban these commercials.I know that we should ban these commercials.
There are many reasons why junk food commercials need to be banned.One reasons is that you would be overweight because of the sugary candy.Then the bad thing will be that you would nag your mom.You might even be wasting a lot of her money for something you don’t need to live.It would be better to by some real food.I know that people by healthy cereals just because they look healthy.I mean if you think about honey nut cheerios and cinnamon toast crunch they have a lot of sugar.They are just like frosted flakes.
The other sides says that we should not ban junk food.They don’t even care about there kids health.The kids just like seeing those commercials that they will beg you until you buy it for them.Then if they eat a lot they will get fatter.Kids might be telling there mom that they should try it.Then moms will be eating a lot of the junk food so that is what causes them to be fatter like there children.Of course people think we should still have these commercials even though it is making America fatter.
As a conclusion,I believe that they should ban junk food commercials.It would be the best thing to do for America.It might be possible that America will lose weight.People will be losing a lot of weight easier.
