Vitamins! --Opening Scene-- Harrison: Hey man, whats up? Nathan: Nothing much, what about you. Harrison: You know, just doing schoolwork. Nathan: Yeah, soon its SUMMER! Harrison: Yeah, I can't WAIT!!!!! Nathan: Haha, me too, be right back, I need to drink some milk, you know, I need to grow TALL! Harrison: Hey, me too! But I take vitamins, come on, thats so much better then drinking MILK. Nathan: NO MAN! MILKS BETTER!!!! Harrison: NO MAN!! VITAMINS ARE BETTER!!!!! Nathan: FINE THEN! YOU WANNA HAVE A DEBATE? Harrison: BRING ITTTTTT --Debate Happens-- The Debate will take place in 2 presentations, Debate 1 will happen in Harrison's presentation, and Debate 2 will happen in Nathans Presentation because the limit of presenting is 5 minutes and the debate must be 10 minutes long. Debate 1 5 Minutes

As the majority of people know, milk provides many benefits such as: Strong bones, protection from tooth decays and cavities, and flexibility. First of all, milk is full of nutrients that our body needs to operate
  3. 3. properly. It contains vitamins (for redbloodcells), calcium, carbohydrates (for energy), magnesium (for strong muscles), phosphorus (for utilizing the energy),potassium (for a good nervous system), protein (for growth and healing processes), riboflavin (for a healthy and glowing skin) and zinc (to boost the immune system). A majority of these nutrients do not exist in calcium vitamin supplements. Also unlike vitamin supplements milk hydrates the body. This can cool your body as well as maintain the fluid level in the body. According to Dr. Bazilian: 99 percent of the body’s calcium is stored. Plus, hundreds of studies have shown that calcium in milk helps improve bone density. She explains that “Denser bones mean less likelihood of fractures and a lower risk of osteoporosis – a major public health threat for over 40 million Americans,” adds the nutrition expert. Dr Bazilian also says that calcium is necessary for muscular and circulatory function. She explains, “Calcium plays an important role in our muscles as well as our blood stream, too. The human body works hard to keep a normal balance of calcium in the blood stream at all times to maintain ‘homeostasis.’ Calcium plays a role in blood vessel contraction and expansion. If calcium levels drop, the body will pull calcium from the bones to replenish the levels in the blood. In addition, many studies prove that our bodies are more capable of absorbing natural calcium from milk than the calcium that comes from vitamin supplements. WHY CALCIUM VITAMINS ARE BAD FOR YOU Calcium vitamin supplements are literally made from rock. The vitamins arent acidic enough to be absorbed well—estimates are that only 5 percent of it is absorbed. So if you take 1500 mg of vitamin supplements, at best you’re actually getting about 75 mg. Over the years the vitamin industry has added various acidifying substances to calcium to make it more absorbable. For example, calcium citrate is calcium plus citric acid, calcium gluconate is calcium plus gluconic acid and calcium lactate is calcium with lactic acid added. But even acidified, you still only absorb 30 to 37 percent of rock calcium. Also, many studies have shown that people who take vitamins are more likely to get kidney stones than those who drink milk and absorb natural calcium. Thank you. Rebuttal Information 1. Harrison's Information "Calcium is needed for our heart, muscles, and nerves to function properly and for blood to clot. Inadequate calcium significantly contributes to the development of osteoporosis. Many published studies show that low calcium intake throughout life is associated with low bone mass and high fracture rates. National nutrition surveys have shown that most people are not getting the calcium they need to grow and maintain healthy bones ."
  4. 4. "Whereas vitamins are organic substances (made by plants or animals), minerals are inorganic elements that come from the soil and water and are absorbed by plants or eaten by animals. Your body needs larger amounts of some minerals, such as calcium, to grow and stay healthy. Other minerals like chromium, copper, iodine, iron, selenium, and zinc are called trace minerals because you only need very small amounts of them each day." Statistics and Graphs Recommended Calcium Intakes Age Amount of Calcium (mg) Infants Infants Birth to 6 months 210 6 months to 1 year 270 Children/Young Adults Children/Young Adults 1 to 3 years 500 4 to 8 years 800 9 to 18 years 1,300 Adult Women & Men Adult Women & Men 19 to 50 years 1,000 50 years and older 1,200 Pregnant or Lactating Pregnant or Lactating 18 years or younger 1,300 1,000 19 to 50 years Rebuttal Information 1. Not everybody can drink milk, so people can take calcium vitamins. 2. Drinking milk can be quite annoying sometimes, but popping in a vitamin to your mouth is quick and easy, rather then drinking 3 cups of milk. 3. People may die by accidentally drinking unpasturized milk. 4. Milk has fat in it, vitamins only have the required nutrition in it. 5. The the minerals inside the vitamin provide more nutrition then just milk. How can you eat bits of copper? Thats why taking vitamins are better, they give you the nutrition you need all in one pill. 6. Fat inside the milk can actually pause your growth because its not good for your bones.
  5. 5. 7. You can get everything from vitamins, but not everything from milk. 8. A diet high in saturated fat increases the risk of heart disease. To limit your saturated fat intake, choose low-fat or non-fat versions of your favorite dairy foods. Switch out your 2% milk for 1%, and once you adjust to that, try skim milk. You can also find many reduced-fat cheeses, low-fat ice cream and frozen yogurt, and healthy butter substitutes. Some taste better than others, so shop around. 9. Some studies show a possible link between the natural estrogens found in milk and breast, prostate, and testicular cancer, which rely on sex hormones to grow. Part of the problem is modern dairy practices, where the cows are continuously pregnant and milked over 300 days per year. The more pregnant the cow, the higher the hormones in the milk. Despite being labeled “hormone-free” organic milk can still be high in natural hormones. To reduce your exposure, stick to skim milk. Because the hormones are found in the milk fat, skim milk has a much lower level. 10. Many people are lactose intolerant, meaning they are unable to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk and milk products. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and include cramping, bloating, gas, and diarrhea. Beyond the discomfort it causes, lactose intolerance can also interfere with calcium absorption from dairy. Certain groups are much more likely to have lactose intolerance: 90 percent of Asians, 70 percent of blacks and Native Americans, and 50 percent of Hispanics are lactose intolerant, compared to about 15 percent of Caucasians.
