Is Meat Bad for You? Is Meat Unhealthy?


  1. Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell8 days ago

    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.

    If society develops lab grown meat, then we don't have to abuse animals for meat and the militant vegans can calm down. It was technology that ended slavery and it will be technology that ends animal abuse.

    Meh, I guess y'all wanted to "balance things out" or something after your very pro-vegetarian video, and I'm completely in favor of nuanced views that aren't just black and white, however, this video was pretty much a flop. You wanted to prove that meat was somehow necessary for human health which is simply not the case. It seems like y'all wanted to defend your own eating habits instead of actually presenting accurate information. There are other good arguments to make in order to defend meat consumption (for example, politics and corporations trying to shift the blame on the individual customer instead of addressing systemic issues) but health is just not a very good argument. While meat might not be unhealthy per se, it's pretty easy to get the nutrients it provides from plants. There's very little reason to continue supporting animal agriculture.

    wrong about eating fish with no negatives and being most healthy. every fish in the world has traces of chemicals from our waters, and they biomagnify through the food chain. not to even mention micro-plastics that are basically irremovable from the fish. half of the 114 aquatic species found with microplastics are species we commonly eat. PCBs, PAHs and heavy metals all bind to these microplastics. all ends up in your stomach. be careful

    This is why I advocate for a balance of lean meats, vegetable's and fruits, drink water instead of soda, stay away from snack foods like chips, stay away from sugar. Balance your fat intake and your vegetable consumption so your body can feel better and function better. Stay away from oily foods, processed foods, fried foods etc. This isn't rocket science. Leaning your affiliation of foods towards a specific party is dumb, eating healthy doesn't require a specific affiliation with either meat eaters or vegans etc. because your actual body isn't going to care, your body will only feel the effects of your life style.

    My problem with this video is that most of the positive aspects of meat are not given with the appropriate context, and there are many more downsides to eating meat than stated. For examples meat only contains vitamin B12 if the animals are gras fed, because the B12 comes from microorganisms in the gras, most animals however are fed a mixture of corn and joy, no natural occurring B12 in the meat of those animals. Another two example is there is no mention of the inflammatory response when eating any type of animal product. No mention of the poisons and heavy metals accumulated in fish. The information given is not the complete picture!

    Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell Something you didn't mention in regards to those certain communities who "eat the whole animal" is that generally speaking not only do they tend to get sick more often, not only do they tend to have higher levels or rare and or strange diseases, not only do they then tend to pass said diseases on to everybody else; (going into bitchy mode here for a moment) but focussing in on the community you had specifically mentioned and ones like it; that they also live and conduct themselves in such a way that they not only make things harder for themselves but also make things much harder for everybody else around them: because "" there not going to let anyone or especially "the white man" tell them what to no, all there going to do is persecute and finger point while absolving themselves of all responsibility whilst at the same time not taking any responsibility for themselves or anything when; 1. they are responsible for themselves and their actions: and 2. while we do not have anything to do with what they are doing and do not have anything to do with them we (meaning the people who were born here at least) are if only by definition just as native to this area as anybody else. P.S. On a show called Bill Nye saves the world they were talking about growing artificial meat and I for one think that it would be great if we could get meat without having to actually kill anything to do it: so I'm wondering, would you be willing to an episode on the subject?

    There are only 3 macro nutrients: protein, fat, and carbs. If we eat less fat we have to eat more of the others. Fat does not make you fat, carbs do. Processed food in general is cancerous, look up TBHQ, BHA, BHT preservatives even in vegan food. Look to what your ancestors ate, and how healthy they were.

    I think governments needs to take action. It's very nice if you're a vegetarian/vegan yourself. But some individuals taking initiative against billions of people who simply don't know/ don't care/ don't want to change their diet, means it's still a drop in the ocean. There needs to be a big change on a global level. But yeah, we're already talking about making changes to prevent climate change for decades. When are we finally going to actually DO it? You also have to change the capitalistic system, because making money is now more important than maintaining the planet. And I don't think capitalism is going anywhere soon.

    What has not been put into the video and shows the facts is that the processed meat is determined 1A carcinogen but the unprocessed is 2A, the fact of not processed enter 2A occurs because you can not put the man in the laboratory. But you can put animals and in these the red meat is the cause of cancer. Why does Cancer occur? Because of the toxins, (NH4), sometimes the factor that the protein is highly divided in amino acids, is the factor that in the intestine generates more NH4 and therefore greater factor to cause cancer. There was a great lack of analysis of chemical reactions in the video, and comparative anatomy of carnivorous animals and others by the size of the intestine and its characteristics for meat consumption. In other words, the video was on the fringe of the excuse of not knowing full, for justification of the possible error. Type: If we have systems that point, but are not fully explained, it can be used until everything shows that it causes evil. But on this path, several people who could be alive will be dead.
