NEVER TRY SMOKING; a Hortatory Sample

A lot of people, especially teenagers, who do not smoke, always want to try smoking.
They know it is bad for them and all, but it is just something they want to try. So they ask
one of their smoker friends for a cigarette. Admittedly, they firstly can not light it on their
own so they ask his friend to do it. Then they inhale that cigarette and smoke

Apparently that makes them the born smokers. Now they do smoke fairly regularly. They
can not avoid smoking and they enjoy too. They have smoker friends. Everyday they
bring a pack in their pocket. For them, a pack of cigarette is as important as a wallet for
their money.

Suddenly, for certain reason, they realize the fact that tobacco is the cause of a long list of
nasty diseases. It is not only heart disease, stroke, and chronic lung disease but also
bladder, lung, and pancreatic cancer. Even it was reported that around 400,000
Americans died each year. It was one every 80 seconds from tobacco-related illnesses.

Then they decide it is stupid to harm selves. They want to quit smoking. Unfortunately,
they find that quitting smoking is so difficult. “Why can't I stop smoking? I really want to
stop it”. It is hard to quit because nicotine is powerfully addictive. Cigarette is one of the
most efficient drug-delivery devices ever devised. As result, when people try to quit
smoking, they often experience classic nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety,
irritability, headache, depression, and restlessness.

Well, still want to try smoke? Think the facts before trying! If you are not smoker, you
should never and never try to smoke.
Hortatory Example in Wearing Helmet

Why Should Wearing a Helmet when Motorcycling

We often hear lots of stories from road regarding people taking spill on motorcycle when
they are riding without using helmet. Mostly the riders badly end up in mess.

Wearing a fitted protective helmet offers many benefits which reduces the negative
aspects of riding. First and the most important is that wearing the correct helmet can save
a rider's life, physical ability, family pain, and money. The recommended designs of
motorcycle helmets can provide total protection. They not only protect riders from
getting a worse road injured accident but also from flying bugs, such as rain, sleet, mud
and other potential projectiles.

Second, wearing a helmet can gives the raiders a matter of style. Helmets give the
opportunity for rider to express the image they may want to project when riding on they
way. This benefit may not be important to some people, but to others, it means a lot and
important. By choosing the most appropriate helmet from all of the various styles, such as
beanie, shorty, German, and many others, wearing a helmet which can projecting an
image is an inherent crucial part of motorcycling and help riders feel more confident
when riding on the road.

However, what most important is wearing helmet when riding is a matter of using it
properly. Bikers should use the helmets which are fixed to their head. It is really not good
if they places simply the helmets on the head without settling them properly. The bikers
should fasten the helmet correctly to their head in order to get safe and comfort.

How can we see the generic structure of the hortatory example above?

Thesis: the importance of wearing helmet which is stated in the first paragraph

Argumentative: Wearing helmet gives a total protection and giving a chance in imaging
self which presented in the second paragraph.

Recommendation: Bikers should wear helmet properly to get the benefits.

Fast Food Danger
From LoveToKnow Safety

There are more than 200,000 fast food restaurants in the United States, and many hungry
patrons are unaware of the fast food danger that may lurk inside the wrappers and under
the plastic lids of these convenient meals.

Convenient or Dangerous?

Fast food is an integral part of our society, from the hot biscuit sandwiches and hash
brown patties for breakfast to the burgers, fries and shakes of a quick dinner. Because it is
relatively inexpensive, quickly prepared and easy to eat on the go, fast food is the
ultimate culinary convenience, but that accessibility can lead to dangers that may impact
a person’s health, quality of life and budget.

With the many regulatory agencies that monitor fast food restaurants, consumers often
wonder why they are dangerous at all. The Food and Drug Administration, state and
federal inspection boards and other quality control agencies exist to ensure that fast food
is not detrimental. Unfortunately, there are many potentially dangerous factors that
agencies cannot patrol continuously. The extremely high volume of food that restaurants
handle can spread dangers faster than the drive thru, and the high employee turnover rates
mandate continuous training that may not be effectively absorbed by new workers eager
to begin earning their paychecks. Savvy consumers, on the other hand, can reduce the
risks of unhealthy fast food by understanding what dangers may exist and how to avoid
or reduce the problems.

Types of Fast Food Danger

There are three main fast food problems that can become dangerous to restaurant patrons:
food borne illnesses, obesity from overindulgence and budgets taxed by the high cost of

Food poisoning is one of today’s most visible fast food scares. Several times a year, the
media will report on outbreaks of different food-borne illnesses with symptoms such as
nausea, fever, diarrhea, cramps and dehydration. These outbreaks may affect just a few
individuals or may spread to hundreds, and may even result in fatalities.

Food poisoning has two common causes: unsanitary cooking conditions and improperly
cooked food. Bacteria thrives in unclean facilities and can quickly spread between the
temperatures of 40 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which is why most health food
inspectors emphasize the necessity for proper sanitation procedures and the right internal
food temperatures for fried and grilled foods. While restaurant patrons may not be able to
bring a thermometer to test their meat or create laboratory cultures for countertop
bacteria, simple observation can help consumers avoid this notorious fast food danger.

• Go inside the restaurant to check for general cleanliness. An unclean restaurant

(dirty floors and tables, unsanitary restrooms, unpleasant smells, etc.) may
indicate a greater likelihood of dangerously unclean cooking conditions.
• Employees should be dressed properly (including hair nets, gloves, and other
protective clothing when necessary), have clean hands and fingernails, and be
attentive to their jobs. If the employees don’t care about how they look or act in
front of customers, how can they care about the food they cook and serve?
• Wash your hands before eating. Many suspected cases of food poisoning are
caused by the patrons rather than the food itself. Keep anti-bacterial foams, gels,
or wipes available before eating drive thru meals and be sure to wash thoroughly
before handling any food.
• Eat food while still hot. Once food cools, bacteria can multiply at an extraordinary
rate. Do not order fast food meals and then drive home for a half hour before
eating. If a delay is inevitable, reheat the food to a safe temperature before eating.

Obesity is a growing concern that affects all age groups but is more prevalent among
individuals who routinely eat fast food meals several times per week. While a few extra
pounds may not have severe effects, extreme obesity is a fast food danger that can lead to
serious health problems, including diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, tooth decay
and arthritis.

Fast food contributes to obesity because it is generally less healthy than other meal
options and portions are outrageously oversized. For example, an average adult requires
2,000 calories of nutrition each day for a healthy diet. Yet a relatively small fast food
meal may have far more calories than suspected: a regular size hamburger (400 calories),
medium order of fries (380 calories) and a medium soda (200 calories) add up to a
whopping 980 calories or nearly half the recommended daily intake – which doesn’t
include large-sized portions, desserts or indeed, any other meals throughout the day.

To avoid the dangers of obesity brought on by fast food, consumers can:

• Opt for smaller portion sizes or split larger portions with other people.
• Choose healthier side items such as salads or fruit cups instead of fries.
• Drink water instead of soda.
• Skip heavy condiments such as mayonnaise, bacon and dressing that add extra
• Avoid eating all meals from fast food restaurants; breakfast selections are as
equally unhealthy as the dinner menu.


Many consumers do not realize the financial fast food danger that can quickly wreak
havoc on their wallet. While an individual meal may be inexpensive – averaging just $5
per person – those costs quickly escalate when eating at fast food restaurants multiple
times per week. If a family of four were to eat fast food twice a day for a month, the costs
would be a staggering $600 per month or more.

To avoid endangering a dining budget:

• Reserve fast food meals for a treat rather than a convenience.

• Skip requesting larger sizes that add more to the bill.
• Use coupons and special deals to enjoy the treat at a lower cost.

In Conclusion

Fast food dangers come in several forms, but health- and budget-conscious consumers
can easily avoid the most dangerous traps of the fast food industry with common sense
and moderation. A quick and convenient treat from the drive thru is nothing to be afraid
of if it is enjoyed wisely.
