Over the last few years eating meat has increasingly been associated with health risks, like heart disease, cancer and an early death. How unhealthy is meat really?

    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Il y a 15 jours

    Here are our sources: sites.google.com/view/sourcesismeathealthy/ 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: www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195666319305549?via%3Dihub 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.

    @Heather Dyett Although kursgesagt said moderation, they gave a clear ballpark to aim for. That range being < 500g a week. Which would require cutting meat to 1/2 to 1/3 of the current average.

    STOP KILLING THINGS IN YOUR VIDEOS MY LITTLE SISTER LITERALLY CRIES AND EVERY SINGLE VIDEO HAS SOME FORM OF MURDER. Im am trying to educate her through your videos but I'm about to stop recommending this to friends and kids as educational material because all kids can focus on is all the heads blowing up, animals murdering each other, and basically violence. Yes it's funny to adult but not to kids who are sensitive to cute little animals killing each other or watching death constantly.

    I don't think asking people to go vegan is productive... its a big change and if you shame people too much they get defensive and shut down so your not getting anywhere. I really think people should cut down on their meat consumption, but it's not all or nothing, every meal counts. Think about whether you really love this food, or need it, and when you realize there are alternatives that work for you use them! I personally very rarely eat meat. I don't find chicken tasty so I don't eat it, pigs and octopus are to smart so I don't eat them either. I eat fish and other sea foods at least once a week. Every now and then I crave a bloody steak, or some red meat that hasn't been processed. I really am not a fan of processed meats which makes it a lot easier for me. I think its like someone chewed it up, spit it out and turned into something else. When that time comes when I really need that steak I go for it, but I still make sure I buy humanely raised meat. Preferably I want to know where the meat came from, where the animals lived, and if they were treated with respect. Get to know the local farmers! There are always exceptions, make your decisions one at a time. Its not all or nothing! I think thats the most important concept. Acknowledge that meat comes from animals, and that as an animal yourself you are allowed to take up space on this planet. But also make decisions wisely and with respect for the animal you are eating.

You want to see the greatest improvement in your health don't eat or drink anything that has sugar, especially if it has high fructose corn poison in it, and you will see the difference. just do it for one week and you'll be amazed.
