Some people think that governments should ban dangerous sports, while others think people should have freedom to do any sports or activity. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

Some people argue that dangerous sports should be banned, while others suggest that everyone should be free to play any sports they like.
This
essay will provide some explanations for both points of view before coming to my opinion on
this
issue. It is arguable that governments should prohibit dangerous sports
such
as the X-games. These games pose a great risk

to
people’s health, especially for the young.
For example
, it is widely known that most X-games players suffer from
legs

the legs
and back injuries
as a result
of constantly crashing their bodies to the ground.
Moreover
, as entertaining and thrilling as they might seem, dangerous sports are not irreplaceable. There are a variety of alternatives for players to choose from, ranging from the indoor board-games
to

in
the outdoor ball sports.
Although
these options
also
carry some degrees of risks, they are much safer compared to the X-games.
On the other hand
, other people support the idea that we should have freedom to choose which sports to play. They argue that it is impossible to prohibit anything since humans will always have a way to go around the ban. Prostitution or
illegals
prohibited by law or by official or accepted rules
illegal
drugs can be seen as clear examples.
Although
they are outlawed virtually worldwide, it is not hard to look for
such
services and products in most major cities.
Moreover
, banning dangerous sports will prevent players from obtaining protection from
healthcare
Suggestion
health care
or insurance services. Without
such
protections, players will be exposed to even higher risks, increasing the chances of death or permanent injuries. In conclusion,
although
many people oppose dangerous sports, I believe the government should not outlaw these games because doing so will pose a greater threat on the players.

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.
