Good afternoon, ladies and gentleman. Today, we are debating the resolution “Japanese university students should not drink alchohole.” We, on the negative team, strongly oppose this resolution. First, I will refute the affirmative reasons, and then I will give the negative points; study, toxicy, obligation.
Affirmative’s first point is 18 years old people have some period of life, so it is good for people who go university should be allowed to drink. It is true that there are mature university students and who are more adult than other adult. However, they are still immature in mental parts. Also when they drink with bunch of other university students and since they become very high, they have no limit in drinking. The start of tossing down causes severe amount of alcohol.
Income for liquor taxes is not good reason for drinking in the students of university. It is because liquor taxes will be gain in a big amount, but the more liquor taxes increases, the more and more medial expenses increase. Alcohol cause many sicknesses, like alcoholic. It is hard to treat and the government needs more budget for medicine. It is bigger than the income for liquor taxes.
Their last point is feeling isolated by drinking for him or herself. As I said for first point, when drinking with other people who are same age, they cannot limit their drinking amount. As a result, they could easily become addicted to alcohol. Also this idea accelerates the concept of drinking together for fun only. It is okay for your age because your age is near mine. I can legally drink and you are younger only three months, so you can drink freely. If this role is accepted, like affirmative team says, this is the idea elementally school’s pupil can drink together.
First of all, our university students’ work is to study. Drinking make us feel high and lose our control. Sometimes we lose our memories and don’t know what we did. University students often hold party and they turn pale and throw up, make a lot of noise, put off their clothes by drinking. It is clearly not good situation for students and that kinds of behavior bothered other people. After they drink, they suffer from hang over. It makes students difficult to go to school and learn in a good way, so they had better avoid alcoholic beverages.
Second point is its toxicy. From the medical aspect, our body will mature completely about 20. Drinking in the young age causes heart attack, cerebral atrophy, disorder of sex hormone, of brain cells easily than not. Also under age, aldehyde degradation function level is very low. Please look at this graph. 10% of Japanese people don’t have the aldehyde-degrading enzyme, 45% of Japanese people could drink little. People who don’t have aldehyde-degrading enzyme drink alcohol, aldehyde accumulating in their body and turn to be red or feel bad. That people drink more and go on, they will be a high-risk digestive cancer carrier. Lethal dose of alcohol is only 3 times bigger than effective dose. This range is very narrow compared by other drugs.
Last point is obligation. In Japan, 20-year-old people regard as an adult and given the light in law. I already say that alcohol make us high and lose our control. That situation have the possibility for causing case like destroying something, Under 20 person can’ t have the responsibility for his or her behavior. That kind of case, they can’t say “I don’t remember. ”or ”I don’t intend that” University students in Japan include under 20 people. So, drinking must be banned till graduation.
Thank you for listening.
reflection: I could add more information for this. I could gather our ideas more simply. I could see more audience...
