Read the passages below and write an essay that addresses the following:
• What is the position in each passage?
• What evidence or reasons are given in support of each position?

Your essay should be formatted as follows: Word Processed; Two Pages/500 word minimum; Double-spaced; 12 point font; submitted as an attachment through the course (.doc file).
Please make sure that you respond to both passages and follow closely to the three questions in the above prompts (bullets). Do NOT do additional research on the topic. The purpose of this exercise is to analyze the two existing passages; not to demonstrate additional research skills.
Passage 1. Pro: Alcoholic Beverage Advertising Should Be Restricted
Alcohol-industry representatives often cite the incompleteness of the research record on alcohol advertising as proof that alcohol promotion has no impact on consumption. However, to clarify the impact of promotional efforts—efforts on which the industry spends $2 billion annually—independent researchers have begun to frame questions and pursue studies on the relationship between alcohol advertising and behavior and health. Although more research is needed, there is strong scientific evidence that the effects of alcohol advertising, like the effects of tobacco advertising, are not limited to brand selection by adults. Research conducted by Joel W. Grube and Lawrence Wallack suggests that awareness of TV beer commercials leads to favorable beliefs about drinking in children 10 to 12 years old and increases their intention to drink as adults. Henry Saffer compared motor-vehicle deaths with quarterly measures for broadcast advertising in 75 media markets over a three-year period. He concluded that a ban on broadcast alcohol advertising would save 2,000 to 3,000 people annually from death due to alcohol-related motor-vehicle crashes.
