What are the Pros and cons of being a Student athlete?
Pros . It's good for your health : When you choose a whole-foods, plant-based diet, you will quickly appreciate the many health benefits: you may lower your cholesterol, l…ose weight, reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, or Type 2 diabetes, increase your energy levels, and reduce constipation. Being a vegan can mean a diet of less fat and fewer chemicals. . It's good for the earth : The production of a quarter-pound hamburger requires 625 gallons of water, the destruction of 55 square feet of rainforest, and wastes 50 times more fossil fuel than would the production of the same amount of plant-based food. Up to 16 pounds of grain and soybeans are needed to produce one pound of beef. Of the grain grown in the United States, 80% is fed to animals to produce meat, milk, and eggs. That statistic is even more alarming now that we are also using grain to produce more fuel. Out of the huge amount of pesticide used on these grains, a percentage ends up on the food is destined for animals that are used to produce meat, milk, and eggs. The pesticide concentrates in the bodies of the animals. This pesticide is then eaten by people, and fed to their companion animals. The other 99% of pesticide ends up in the air that we and other animals breathe and the water that we and other animals drink. The meat industry generates nearly one-fifth of man-made greenhouse gas emissions, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Using animals to produce food is bad for the environment. . It's good for your fellow humans : Besides costing in terms of water and fuel that much of the world cannot afford, a pound of ground beef will cost $2.88 this year in the United States, where its production is highly subsidized. It provides 1,152 calories, nearly 91 grams of fat, 78 grams of protein, and no fiber. A half pound of lentils mixed with a half pound of brown rice costs about $1.38 in the United States. They provide 1,587 calories, 8 grams of fat, 88 grams of protein, and 77 grams of fiber. Many scientists now believe that in the wake of a changing climate, the switch to a largely plant-based diet is necessary to avoid famine. . It's good for your bank account : Spending less on groceries is great, but the biggest savings are long-term. By avoiding chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, you could save on such procedures as a $57,439 heart bypass operation, take far fewer sick days, and substantially lower your life insurance premiums. . It's the right thing to do : Animals on a modern factory farm lead lives of unimaginable suffering and die cruel deaths. Dairy cows spend years in a concrete stall or filthy feed lot before they are slaughtered. Calves and are quickly separated from their mothers, confined in tiny pens, and then killed for veal after only a few months of life. Baby pigs are castrated without anesthesia, taken from their mothers who are confined in tiny crates, and killed at just 7 months. Chickens raised for eggs are crammed in tiny cages and have their beaks clipped to prevent them from hurting each other due to stress from confinement. These animals are killed with a bolt to the head or a knife. Male chicks are thrown into trash bags to suffocate or ground up alive. Cons . Eating refined "junk" food, even if it's cruelty-free, can cause deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. This can be fixed by eating the right foods, not just French fries. . Vegans can sometimes find it hard to find food and have to make a lot of it themselves. Menus may not have vegan options or there may be hidden animal products in foods (such as lactose, casein, and other things). The best thing to do is to make your food yourself. This can take time but is a lot of fun if you do it right. . Being a vegan can lead to compulsive checking of ingredients, reading of clothing labels and chucking out woolen jumpers, leather watch bands and previously beloved leather shoes. You'll discover animal products in shampoo, soap and tooth paste. But don't worry, you have heaps of cruelty free products to choose from. And at least you know what is in them! . Vegans need to watch their nutritional sources. All vegetables do not have good sources of vitamin B12, for instance or not at all. This would have to come in either a pill form or from certain bacteria that make a lot of B12 that vegans would have to eat. Sources of iron from plants cannot be properly obtained by vegans if they don't add an additional source of vitamin C to help with absorption. For humans, it is much easier to absorb iron from meat than it is with plants. . There is no way you're going to avoid consuming hormones no matter if you're on a strictly plant diet or not. Plants also produce hormones just like animals do, so there's no avoiding it if part of the reason you went vegan in the first place was to avoid the hormones found in meat and dairy products. . Humans are naturally omnivorous creatures, despite "scientific" claims from pro-vegan anti-meat groups otherwise. We may not have sharp teeth and claws or really short small intestines like the real carnivores do, but our stomach is not built like a cow's (with four chambers and a large population of bacteria to help break down the coarse plant material), nor do we have a large cecum like a horse (which also holds a healthy population of fibre-loving bacteria). Our stomach is a simple stomach just like the true omnivores and carnivores have, which is built anatomically for more efficient means of digesting meat. There is a reason why meat takes so long to digest and plants not so much: it's because it can be broken down easier than with plants. With plants, they are harder to digest, there for they pass through faster. It is this reason that careful diet choices must be made in order to live a long and healthy vegan lifestyle. . Being a part of a minority group basing food choices on values and beliefs --less on health, though this can be argued as being otherwise--there's a huge risk of facing criticism and provocation from other people who do not follow the same diet. A vegan may find an even bigger risk of coming to harm if they believe they must force their views onto non-vegans. . It should be noted that much of the land that is made for producing vegetables, grains and fruit crops are not without their disadvantages either. Non-renewable resources like oil and gas, massive amounts of fertilizer, and pesticides are still needed to produce such crops, and land which was once natural habitat with flourishing wildlife populations had to be destroyed and water and wildlife diverted in order to grow the very food that is put on your table. Open fields of crops tilled every year are not unexposed to significant wind and water erosion, and often are much more so than permanent pastureland for livestock, some of which native natural grassland is grown and carefully managed by ranchers. . Veganism is and can only be suitable for those who can afford it. Much of the poor and those who are simply trying to survive cannot survive on plants alone, nor have enough time to do any vegan meal planning. Humans that must survive in the wild can only do so by killing and eating animals. This has been proven by the Inuit and Eskimos of the North, and by Bear Grylls, who is a vegetarian in civilization--definitely not when out in the wild. Tariffs on grain and legumes have those living in the slums with no choice but getting their protein from animals, like those they can hunt for free, if they are able to go hunting, illegally or not. . Not everyone can be vegan, health-wise. Some people have certain health issues or allergies that prevent them from becoming a full-fledged vegan, and can only get their protein from eating meat or consuming dairy products.

you feel good cons u are more guliable
there is alot of cons if you ask me, to name a few: Breathing toxic fumes and dust, loud noises, lossing eye sight over time, heavy lifting, getting burns, smashing fingers, w…elding in some very awkward positions that are hard on your body. Thats just to name a few that come to mind and that is specific more to my personal experience with my current job in a fab/repair shop. We do pretty much everything here. There are alot of welders out there that just do the same thing over and over agin and those are relatively clean enviroments. Some Pros would be: the satisfaction in building something that will last years and years and take a lot of abuse in some cases, generally good pay, the satisfaction of doing something most people find simply amazing, being able to save the day for people in dire need sometimes, I think of myself as a metal docter. Also there isn't a place in the world that you couldn't go with this trade.
Pro's: Good money, being popular, having tons of ADORING fans, and on top of it all doing something that you love (it you like singing, that is) Con's: Paparazzi, not having… "alone time," having tons of vicious rumors spread about you. ANOTHER CON: You cannot pee in public restrooms. Yup.
Cons: -Low wages -stressful assaighnments -over load in work Pros: -it can be a joy if you always wanted to become a secretary. -You can be promoted as an executiv…e secretary, which really rocks!
Basically, when you are healthy, you have more energy. This makes you less lazy which is good for you. When you exersize, your brain releases endorphins causeing you to feel h…appy. Doctors recommend that when you have a headache, instead of taking pills (i.g. Tylenol, advil or other pain medications) you exercise. However, some people can take exercising out of context. There are cases where people get obsessed with exercising and over exercise. This is bad because overexercising will make you really skinny and unhealthy. The key is to exercise, but not overdo it. Also, you want to drink a lot of water before because you will get dehydrated.

Since the benefits of being a citizen of the United States of America are often spoken about, let's first consider some of the cons of being a US American. Being born into a d…emocratic society in which every person is protected under the Bill of Rights and The US Constitution: . It can be difficult for most Americans to imagine people's lives in other countries and cultures where people have few individual rights. . It is very frightening to Americans to hear that governments in other countries exercise what seems to be "extreme" controls over citizens. . In part because we are born into a society with individual rights, we can often take for granted that we can read whatever we want, travel freely within the US, own weapons, vote, talk against our leaders and our government without being killed, can protest and take up causes, etc. . Because some of us take our rights for granted, we fail to be active in our political system. fail to vote, fail to continue fighting injustices in our own country, etc. (for example, Hunger in America; Elder Abuse; lack of health services for certain groups). . Because we take rights for granted, ironically, we do not always see when our leaders are trying to erode our rights. While we value individualism, ironically, we have less experience in community activism toward fighting against having our rights reduced. We individuals feel alone and unable to take on "the system". . Since many Americans don't pay attention to politics, small numbers of voters elect officials that the rest of us don't like and don't want elected. Then, people complain when politicians try to hoodwink us through their rhetoric. . Because of the size of our country, and being raised in a mostly English-speaking country, most adults in the US expect English to be the sole language (and it is currently the International Language). Our colonial roots were a melting pot of immigrants and cultures, but we've lost touch with differences between countries. Smaller European countries, with neighboring countries so close, their citizens must learn other countries' languages. Most other countries teach grade school children English and other languages. . Americans are accused by many that we want to Americanize the world, and seek to democratize other countries. Americans are often called on to help other nations in need or at war, but our help is also resented because America is perceived as desiring to make other countries live by our rules, our standards, our democratic / republic beliefs, which many Americans believe are improved or superior to other countries' ways. The pros of being born in America or becoming a citizen of America seem numerous. . We enjoy many freedoms and 'birth rights' just because we live here. . Government does not control what we read, watch on TV, who we talk to, associate with, how many children we have, where we live, our choice of occupations, how we think, etc. . We can vote for Mr. Politician----and the next day, criticize that person. Along with our birth rights, we have the priviledge of being 'fickle' and second guessing ourselves. . We thrive under capitalism, where small businesses grow alongside corporations. . We can cross state borders without telling anyone why; if we wanted, we could walk, run or drive repeatedly back and forth across State borders all day long and no one would care (except maybe local police). . We have numerous State and Federally funded programs, if elligible to receive the services or money. . Besides hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes in some States, the US is relatively free of natural diasters. Our country is expanisive, with many areas protected against development. . Our healthcare is crappy, but is still far above many other countries' services. There are probably many other cons and pros that are omitted here.
