Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Here are our sources: It is very fascinating to see that the both extremes, vegans and people on meat heavy diets hate this video. Usually we are attacked more from one direction - in this cases both ends of the spectrums are really upset. Anything relating to nutrition is very controversial unfortunately. Someone on twitter posted this: There is research showing strong links between dietary choices and social identity: So if you want to, you can find sources telling you that every kind of diet is bad for you. We tried very hard not to do that and get a real understanding what the health effects of meat are. We also did not have a particular bias, we have vegetarians, flexitarians and meat eaters in the team. And in general, since our first meat video many of us have reduced their meat consumption or at least try to. Others in the team have not changed at all and don't plan to. We don't have an overarching agenda here, one way or the other. There is a video about milk in the making right now and we also just started a video about veganism. Look forward to more diet related videos next year.

I love these kinds of videos but there so scary and make me worried
If I gave up meat, I would be dead, I’m 90% carnivore, 5% fruit (bananas) and 5% candy So I can either be vegan or die

Meat contains no fiber and essentially no phytochemicals (which include things like antioxidants) so the statement that you can thrive off meat isn’t exactly accurate. There’s a difference between not immediately dying from nutrient deficiency and eating an optimal diet. Animal protein and fats are also inflammatory, often contains endotoxic bacteria, and animal protein has been shown to accelerate cancer growth through increased IGF-1 production. Not to mention the fact that we have to cook meat to eat it which often creates more carcinogenic compounds. There’s essentially a dose-response relationship for so many different diseases between meat intake and health outcomes in both cross sectional and interventional studies. I’ve never seen a study that suggests that eating meat is healthier than not eating it. Which by definition means it is not a health promoting part of a diet in any sense (like the example with fish & omega 3s. Instead of eating fish and also getting cholesterol, more inflammatory fats, problematic animal protein, and pollution you can eat walnuts and get fiber and antioxidants). This was a softer take than I’d expect from this channel, but being privy to these things isn’t exactly mainstream or a part of popular science so I’m not super surprised-but a bit disappointed

If diabetes is linked to insulin resistance brought on by carbs and sugar how does it make any sense at all that red meat would cause diabetes?
• I am a Funny YouTuber lol
Short answer:becuse some red meat has fat and may casue you to have high cholesterol levels so yea thats how u can become an diabetic but that's why people also take insulin but only helps with sugar control in the blood but nit necessarly cholesterol.

Here's a tip to eating meat from an 78 years old bodybuilder 1. No processed meat 2. No more than one serving per meal ( about the size of your fist ) 3. No more than 20% fats in the meat 4. Do exercises to eat more meat. ( It'll actually benefit you to eat more meat if you exercise ) 5. Don't eat too much red meat ( only half the amount of meat you eat should be red meat )
• I am a Funny YouTuber lol
Nah I think chicken meat is better and besides red meat is expensive

I mean, eating from there once or twice a week is bad but you re still ok. If you mean every other day then yeah thats pretty damaging. The thing is, changing lifestyle reverses some of those effects. Instead of feeling guilty or giving up, why not adaptating to the challenges of a new, better you.

• I am a Funny FRvidr lol can I ask why do you think we are omnivores? Probably because your parents told you that you are but we are built and act like herbivores we have long intestines made for digesting plants and flat grinding teeth and no claws and most humans can’t even watch an animal die if you were a predator don’t you think we’d be able to watch animals die? And obviously you haven’t done any research many many plant have protein! Where do you think herbivores get their protein? PLANTS!!! And we can too! Why would we hurt animals and wreck our planet if we don’t have to?
• I am a Funny YouTuber lol
@Magic Pigeon Yea u actually don't need to care about the animals maybe the planet but the animals r meant to be eaten we r Godamn omnivores how do u think u will protein from, from veggies phff give me a break😂

How do we know that our ancestors only ate plants! There are certain apes that live mainly on plants but also occasionally eat meat even while living in a plant jungle. There are other life forms on this planet that live in plant infested areas but are carnivorous. you would think that eating plant life would be a easier more suitable natural food adaptation for them. Lets just say we don't know why we eat meat but that we all should eat a true balanced diet (not that stupid food pyramid) and not overindulge on anything. Signed, Meat Lover!

Mild Tmi (too much information) warning, just stay away from hot dogs, don't kill ur stomach bacteria and stay away from nitrates (in lots of hotdogs and sausages, more so hotdogs) I had a hotdog and had very bad stomach issues I was constantly in pain bc of bacteria being killed in my stomach or intestines, I actually had a friend over and I was so out of it I just stayed in bed a she played slime ranchers on my computer for over 12 hours (with sleep) I may have had diarrhea but decided not to poop bc my butt burned and I only took that as a warning, I had this happen twice and the first I got over it pretty easily but I took what I think was called a probiotic to deal with round 2, though don't go looking for probiotic bc I have confused it with other stuff just to reaserch before treating stuff, or go to a doctor thought that's not always needed.

Choosing to eat meat is more of a political thing nowadays than a health thing. Many are going vegetarian or vegan now because of the "treatment of animals in the food industry."
• I am a Funny YouTuber lol
Exactly but going vegan is better overall if u don't want an early death but i agree its more political then a health thing.

@Sam Titus I never said it was immoral, I said it was bad for your cause, when people find out it's a lie, guess what, it backfires.
Sam Titus
Sam Titus Il y a jour
@Abd Mzn would it be immoral to tell a lie to save the life of a person. I don't tell lies as it damages rapport but I think it is okay to lie in order to save these creatures from misery. If the action doesn't harm humans in any way whatsover, isn't it ok to lie for a good cause. Moreover we can't expect vegans to be perfect upholders of morality as no one is perfect. It is just a matter of perspective. Everyone needs to help each other rebuild our views of morality and infuse it into the their daily lives.
Abd Mzn
Abd Mzn Il y a jour
@Sam Titus Well corporations lying doesn't make it okay for vegans to lie too, and morality is entirely different from stating false facts.
