Is Meat Bad for You? Is Meat Unhealthy?

    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.

    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 )

    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."

    @Abd Mzn vegans want eating meat to be harmful because then more people will follow vegan diet, and more animals will be saved from pain(at least that's what we tell ourselves) . Eating vegan diet is not unhealthy(if you take supplements) and is cheaper if done right. Most non vegetarians think that eating meat is necessary, so they are convinced that the animals dying for that is necessary as well. They subconsciously feel that eating animals is serving the purpose of survival.wheras in reality, most humans eat animals for taste and comfort and cause the animals pain, discomfort, suffering,early death(they only get to live 3-8% of their lifespan) and restriction of freedom. Sentient Animals have the ability to play, love, care, worry, feel pain and feel post traumatic stress in missing their loved ones at various degrees which can sometimes be compared with human feelings. Sorry I wrote such a big answer(lazy writing) thank you for reading😀.

    @Sam Titus its not offensive, its just cringe worthy, equating meat eating to eating a corpse, or acting like eating any amount of meat is extremely harmful, especially when the opposite is true, many just seem so desperate for meat to be harmful. but vegans I really hate are the ones who disturb people doing their jobs in places like farms, slaughterhouses, etc.

  55. Sam Titus

    Sam TitusIl y a jour

    @Abd Mzn vegans can be very self centered and passionate about their views. So they want to express their views too much ,which non vegans find offensive which they have every right to. We genuinely think that eating meat of sentient animals is wrong.

    And inuits have horrible cardiovascular health. Mummies also prove it. Fish the healthiest meat... while having lots of mercury and saturated fat. High cholesterol inherited? You will have low cholesterol if you simply don't consume any oils and animal products and no processed foods. I am not even vegan but come on, do more research next time please, it's your job.
