  • 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.

  • this video is BS, some vegetables have more nitrates and nitrites than any meat. why do they lie ?? because they are trying to hide the best food on the planet, how much cancer do the eskimos have when eating ALL meat ?? zero research carnivore diet !! we are being brainwashed by the disease corporations,they profit from cancer heart disease and diabetes.
    ask yourself, how much glass is in meat ? zero. it does NOT cause diabetes, SUGAR DOES think about it. how much money is made selling sugar and carbs ???? which leads to sugar disorders BILLIONS a sick population is easy to control
    guess what queen elizabeth eats ?????? steak

  • For clarification when you're talking about increase risk are you talking percentage of total probablity or relative increase?

  • Is meat unhealthy? Yes. Quite so. It is as unhealthy as can be. It used to be a living animal, before it died, and became meat. Something doesn't get much less healthy than being dead.

  • As long as you consume animal products you are supporting animal cruelty. Is your 15 minutes meal more important than their entire existance?

    go vegan ❤

  • Why is it that fish is first then chicken is second I hate fish and love chicken don’t call me fat I am skinny bones

  • What about heat/fire? We've made a connection that things exposed to high heat or flame become carcinogenic. And meat is almost always exposed to high heat and/or fire. I would be willing to bet that almost all of the cancer risk associated with meat comes from that…

  • When I was a child I didn't eat much meat, but one day I tried it and the vegetarian indoctrination was flushed away. Now I'm a pro-meat activist. Meat is delicious. And that's all that matters.

  • "Esquimos can survive in harsh climates by eating meat!" Yeah talk about their short life expectancy of 40 years and a lot of diceases they get from eating meat 😉

  • Can you guys make a video about dogs or cats meat in Asia? I think it will make Asian less or don't eat dog meats anymore!! Thanks a lot.
