Is Eating Red Meat Helpful or Harmful?

“Our study did not find a safe consumption amount for unprocessed red meat and processed meat. Only zero consumption was associated with no increased risk of heart disease and premature death.” No. NEW YORK According to a new study on red meat, you may not have to give up steaks and burgers. A team of international researchers found the increased risks to cancer and heart disease from. Groups like American Heart Association and World Cancer Research Fund recommend people reduce red meat consumption, and the World Health Organization in 2015 even classified processed red meat as a.

The results of that study, said NutriRECS, showed diets lower in red or processed meat may have “little to no effect” on reducing risk for developing heart disease. A study released Monday greenlighting the consumption of processed and red meat has much of the medical community seeing red. A bad diet is the No. 1 cause of poor health, and increasingly the bony.

Nutritionists across the country are hitting back hard after a new collection of studies alleged that red meat and processed meats — including steak, ribs, bacon and salami —. Results from the new red meat study, which includes the work of researchers from various countries and without any form of funding, show that red meat may not be. New “guidelines” say continue red meat consumption habits, but recommendations contradict evidence A controversial “dietary guidelines recommendation” published in Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that adults can continue to consume red meat and processed meat. Sept.

30, 2019 A group of papers about red and processed meat and human health, released today by Annals of Internal Medicine, says it’s OK to eat them because researchers couldn’t find any. A controversial new study has proven that actually there’s no evidence that eating red meat is bad for us, and that we can go ahead and gorge on steak and burgers once again. On the other hand, headlines have hit out saying that this new research is nonsense, and that it could be deadly if people start eating more meat.

  • If you are confused, the easy tip-off here is the study says that processed meats are a-okay to eat. If that doesn’t set off your bs alarm then Darwin is waiting with an award for you.

  • All the people who eat meat that I’ve talked to over the years have said they “feel” healthier when they eat meat. Scientific? Not really.

  • 4 known facts about vegans:

    (1) All vegans operate from a false premise If your main premise, the foundation behind your argument is flawed, then everything that follows is also flawed. When a cancer cell is created, it only leads to more cancer cells, same as veganism and all the arguments in the support of this false ideology. The foundation of vegan argument comes from ethical and moral viewpoint, yet the reason why humans need to kill and eat animals is based on biology and specifically human physiology and biochemistry. In short, biology takes precedence before everything else, including all of these vegan mental gymnastics, philosophical mumbo jumbo and ethical and moral considerations. Vegans are blinded by their own ignorance and thinking that philosophy, ethics and morals should shape their life decisions and that these things are of utmost importance when it comes to reality. As Nassim Taleb puts it, some vegans are intellectuals, yet idiots, without realizing that.

    (2) All vegans are delusional and mentally ill there are 2 main causes for that. First cause is due to brainwashing, indoctrination and domestication of a modern and westernized culture. Second cause is low quality food, micronutrient deficiencies and toxic overload that creates a hormonal imbalance in the body and chemical imbalance in the brain. And because of these things some people are weak, gullible and science illiterate, even before they become vegan. Delusion and mental illness can start before a person becomes vegan or it can progress further and can become more severe when person switches to veganism. Essentially it all comes down to nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies. If you eat garbage, processed junk foods, too much plants, fruits and not enough of high quality meats and animal based products then your cells, DNA, and genes gets damaged. And then there is more DNA variability, more errors in the code, and in the absence of natural selection, weak and damaged humans are allowed to survive and breed more and more inferior human beings. Veganism is a rich nation problem. In the 3rd world it’s a survival diet until they find or can afford meat. Vegan and plant based ideology developed under capitalism, driven by the fact that plant foods are financially cheaper than meat, making them a more profitable commodity.

    (3) All vegans are science and reality deniers well, this is pretty much self explanatory. But lets start with the basics and what the actual science says. There is NOT A SINGLE one scientific study proving that meat and animal based products are bad or unhealthy for humans or cause any disease or illness. And evidence we have from many different science fields suggests the exact opposite, the more meat and animal products you eat the healthier, stronger and smarter you are, and you enjoy a longer lifespan. In fact, human history, evolution, anthropology, and our physiology and biochemistry ALL support that humans should be meat / animal based AND NOT plant based. According to the scientific evidence not a single human being in existence should ever be vegan, vegetarian or plant based. There is NOT A SINGLE one scientific proof showing that vegan / vegetarian / plant based diets are perfectly healthy for humans long term. We know for a fact that the highest quality and most nutrient dense foods for humans on this planet come directly from animals, not plants. Vegans often misrepresent the science and they try to create a false narrative that supports their own bias. This happens because all vegans science illiterate and that means that they simply can’t read, understand and interpret scientific studies, even if they think they can. They simply don’t know what science is, how it works and what consists of scientific evidence and what doesn’t. Just because something is a scientific study it does not automatically mean that this is an evidence for anything. For example, scientific consensus, epidemiology, associative and correlational data does not consists of scientific evidence. In reality, nothing that vegans do or say is supported by scientific evidence. Vegan movement is based on lies, misinformation, propaganda and pseudoscience. Going vegan is an evolutionary step backwards. Even smart people are not immune to the Dunning-Kruger effect.

    (4) All vegans lack awareness and common sense well, that one is obvious. Vegans are not aware that veganism is killing billions of animals every year, it is harmful to both humans and animals and it also destroys the environment. Vegans are not aware that pain, death, torture, suffering is part of life and reality they live in, so they should just deal with it. Vegans are not aware that there is nothing wrong with killing animals for food. Vegans are not aware that food requirements of homo sapiens are dictated ONLY by our physiology and biochemistry, and not because of what people think is good for them, and not because of some false ideology. Vegan are not aware that vegan / plant based movement is nothing more than a false ideology / personal belief system that is simply not grounded in either reality or science. Vegans are not aware that almost every animal on this planet is edible for humans, while almost all plants are poisonous to us. Vegans are not aware of 3.4 million years of carnivory by the human lineage. It’s what we evolved to do. Our physiology and biochemistry are designed to eat meat and fat. Vegans are not aware that plants are slave drugs: carbs, sugars, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, pot, opium (including opioids like heroine, morhpine) cocaine, etc. Veganism is an industrial indulgence. It wouldn’t even be possible without fossil fuels to harvest massive mono-crops and transport foodstuffs across the globe. It’s harmful to both humans, animal and the environment and it is not sustainable. Vegan and vegetarian agenda is based on lies, misinformation and pseudoscience and is being pushed by the food industry and intellectual idealists.

    And the funny thing is that vegans will try to deny every single thing i have mentioned above. They will try to block and deny it however they can, so their blind belief in their false ideology of veganism stays safe. It is bad enough that so many people believe things without any evidence. What is worse is that some people have no conception of evidence and regard facts as just someone else’s opinion. As Nassim Taleb puts it, if reality continously delivers something that doesn’t “make sense” to you, it is YOU that you need to worry about. In other words, delusional and mentally ill people are not aware that they are delusional and mentally ill. Vegans are a perfect example of that.

  • The Adventist health study 2 was only 3% vegan and also showed fat in the diet in the form of nuts had a significant health benefits. Vegans actually showed a higher rate for cancer. Studies also showed Adventist have lower spern quality. This is also another observational study it could have multiple factors to contribute to longevity. This is exactly the reason why the journal retracted the findings for red meat. More weak evidence doesn’t equal evidence. Come on Dr. Barnard

  • Meat is more healtier than unhealthy… in meat eaters habbits are more variable differences, some causung HD or Cancer. For example meat eaters are often smokers. A lot of meat eaters does’nt study about health, and more of vegans do.
    If you dont eat meat, you have 3% RISK of dying.
    If you will eat meat, the RISK will be 4%…
    Its only statistic noise…

  • Omnitarian for life.

    Fish, Buff, little poultry and lots of mushrooms, vegetables, fruits and cereals like black rice, red rice, Navara rice ect…

  • Way to go with this video. I loved the graphic in front while the doctor kept talking. It made it very clear. Excellent clear info.

  • Most men I know have that style! & It looks great����The way nature created hair un cut, may be you are from a different, less excepting era, we don’t care what ppl wear, how they look, what accent they speak in, intelligence comes in every form, close your eyes & use your ears, if it bothers you that much��just understand the message!!!���������������� would you prefer millions of men with short back & sides identical cuts��

  • Barnard and the PCRM are terrorist scum and wrong. Here’s the “real” truth about them:
    “The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. PCRM is a fanatical animal rights group that seeks to remove eggs, milk, meat, and seafood from the American diet, and to eliminate the use of animals in scientific research. Despite its operational and financial ties to other animal activist groups and its close relationship with violent zealots, PCRM has successfully duped the media and much of the general public into believing that its pronouncements about the superiority of vegetarian-only diets represent the opinion of the medical community.

    “Less than 5 percent of PCRM’s members are physicians,” Newsweek wrote in February 2004. The respected news magazine continued:

    [PCRM president Neal] Barnard has co-signed letters, on PCRM letterhead, with the leader of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, an animal-rights group the Department of Justice calls a “domestic terrorist threat.” PCRM also has ties to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. An agency called the foundation to Support Animal Protection has distributed money from PETA to PCRM in the past and, until very recently, did both groups’ books. Barnard and PETA head Ingrid Newkirk are both on the foundation’s board.

    New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey put it more crisply in a November 2004 piece about PCRM’s annual airport-food ratings. “The physicians’ committee has a PETA link,” he wrote, “and its food rankings reflect that agenda.”

    While PCRM presents itself as a doctor-supported, unbiased source of health guidance, the group’s own literature echoes Newsweek’s observation that 95 percent of its members have no medical degrees. And even the five-percent doctor membership that PCRM claims is open to question. Anyone claiming to be a physician or a medical student can join without paying a dime — even if their only motivation is to collect free waiting-room reading material. Current data indicates that only 10 percent of PCRM’s members graduated from medical school.

    PCRM’s anti-meat and anti-dairy tactics include newspaper op-eds and letters, campaigns against airports and school boards, and television commercials. One 2005 TV spot claims “the most dangerous thing our kids have to deal with today isn’t violence. It isn’t drugs. It’s unhealthy food.” PCRM’s prescription? “Vegetarian foods.”

    The American Medical Association (AMA), which actually represents the medical profession, has called PCRM a “fringe organization” that uses “unethical tactics” and is “interested in perverting medical science.”PCRM is a font of medical disinformation. The group has argued, with a straight face, that experiments involving animal subjects “interfere with new drug development.” PCRM even rejects the consensus of the respectable medical community by claiming that animal experimentation “leads AIDS research astray.”

    PCRM discourages Americans from making donations to health charities like the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Foundation for AIDS Research, the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, the American Red Cross, and even Boys Town. All because they support research that requires animals, in order to cure human diseases. PCRM’s multi-year crusade against the March of Dimes, which includes protests directed at March walkers, volunteers, and donors, has been reported widely.

    Attacking Meat and Dairy

    Often appearing in a lab coat, PCRM president Neal Barnard looks the part of a mainstream health expert. He also churns out a steady stream of reliably anti-meat and anti-dairy nutrition research. Although his “results” generally conclude that a vegan diet (practiced by a tiny fraction of Americans) will solve any of dozens of health problems, the mass media eats them up. And PCRM is media-savvy enough to take advantage.

    But Barnard was trained as a psychiatrist, not a nutritionist. His nutritional advice boils down to one basic message: don’t eat meat, or anything that comes from animals. PCRM has complained to the Federal Trade Commission about advertisements that depict milk as part of a healthy diet. It petitioned the government to slap meat and poultry with a “biohazard label,” adding in its newsletter that eggs should carry these dire warnings as well. PCRM often uses a mixed carrot-and-stick approach to spreading its propaganda. While its ads call school lunches “weapons of mass destruction” for including meat and milk, its “report card” press releases congratulate selected schools for serving “healthy” (read: vegetarian-friendly) meals. After receiving a “failing” grade in a 2004 PCRM survey, the Albuquerque Public Schools told the press that it wouldn’t have participated if it had known the group’s real agenda. “Real physicians,” the school district’s nutrition coordinator told the Albuquerque Tribune, “would not recommend a vegan diet for growing children.”

  • All you are doing is describing unhealthy user bias, and continuing to spread misinformation. Veganism is self sacrifice for moral beliefs and nothing more.

  • google “McClellan-Dubois one year meat trial” This was done in 1930 at Bellevue Hospital, New York. Two men ate meat only for one year, excellent health, no kidney damage.

  • Without red meat, there would not have been humans on this planet!!! You idiots are eating manmade fake things called vegetables….full of anti-nutrients, pesticides and god knows what!! Luckily 99 pct of the world is eating red meat!! Morons!

  • That’s OK, Barnyard. Lots of experts slam the vegan diet.

    And I’ll bet this comment is deleted, too. Wouldn’t want viewers to learn about the PCRM.

  • Eating lots of red meat on my amazing ketogenic diet has risen good hdl, lowered bad VLDL, lowered my triglycerides by 100 points, taken my A1C from 8.3 to 5.4, cured my gut and type 2 diabetes, given me higher mental clarity, lowdered my blood pressure 105/72, its absolutely amazing and why does ketogenic diet get the exact same results that vegan does, it deletes all processed crap sugars and processed crap packaged foods which is actual cause of everything there trying to blame meat for….

  • so glad i’m vegan. now coronavirus is rampant. maybe a few converts to veganism now if they’re smart and want to live a long and healthy life.

  • STFU! I’m not confused. Maybe you are but I’m not. I’ll file this report right in between climate change and hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap and the flu shot. They were all the rages until it started making super bugs resistant.

  • I’m curious how extremists on both sides of the aisle always have the same things to say. If you look at famous Vegan doctors, bodybuilders, and weight loss advocates, you see them saying this way of life is the only way to have actual weight loss, health, and longevity. But if you go to the other side, and consider the Physicians, body builders, and weight loss advocates for the Keto meat-centric way of life, you hear them saying the exact same claims about their version. And both sides can show equal proof and/or evidence that their way is really the only way any sane person would go, because, well, look at the results!
    Both sides show lean, trim people who are energetic, happy, and in the peak of health, saying they were on medications before but not any longer, they had blood pressure problems, coronary disease, etc. one side says no salt, oil or sugar, the other side says slather on the butter and oil, and top it with salt. Well, both sides at least seem to agree that the sugar is bad.
    But what I’m saying is, if you honestly look at both sides, you find that both have plenty of advocates promoting it, both in the professional and private sectors.
    I know people in real life, who are over 50, and are doing the Keto lifestyle. They are biking hundreds of miles on weekends, running marathons, and doing triathlons. They’re strong, energetic, healthy, and clear thinking. I don’t personally know any vegans, but I see enough on YT to know they are the same.
    So how does one choose one or the other.

  • Just reading these comments and I am shocked how uninformed people are. Limiting their access even more to legitimite research findings and info is a very bad idea.

  • And who determines what reduction in health-risk is significant enough to make dietary changes worth it?
    They seem to be be using their own values when speaking for everyone else’s.

  • Huge improvements from what it has been. Change takes long time but we can already see that the change is coming. I believe that in next 10 years we will have keto/lchf seen positively by those associations and keto/lchf is used much more to treat t2d etc.

  • Dr. Tara Narula is an idiot and a lier, she has misrepresented the study findings and lied on camera about research and what it actually said.

  • The saddest thing about these findings is the push-back against low carb diets is so overwhelmingly threatening to the drug companies and the processed food companies. These people need us sick and need us to eat as much processed food as possible to make the millions in profit they rely on. How can we honestly fight this? Processed food tastes so good and stressed parents (and stressed populations) give in to the demand for this type of food because it is ‘easy’. It’s so discouraging.

  • Conflating natural red meat with processed meat and failing to control for other variables is typical of vegan liars.
    The fact is meat is the foundation of human health and vitality.

  • so a private group went back and cherry pick a bunch of studies that were likely funded by the beef industry. considering ive never seen a single study proving a benefit to eating red meat that hasnt been funded by the beef industry i think ill stick to my fruits and veggies thanks

  • You are an awful shill. How can a substance that humans have been consuming for millennia be toxic? Humans consumed meat before obesity and diabetes. Post food pyramid American became fatter and sicker. Its the sugar and you know it. You’re a horrible shill.

  • Thanks you Neal for this concise report! I began studying nutrition as it relates to health and longevity around age 30, and by age 50, I had evolved into a vegan dietary model. That was nearly twenty years ago. fortunately, I transitioned at a time when my health was not in jeopardy in any manner. for me, it was the right decision, and the best one I have ever made, as it will extend my functional years significantly. I have no regrets!

  • Keep commenting carnist shills! Please do. You’re only fueling & supporting Vegan news. We love and accept you, even if you’re unaware and willfully ignorant.

  • They made the mistake of claiming something which is such a huge and obvious lie that even the media can’t promote. Only the most addicted carnists would buy into this nonsense.

  • I find it interesting that all the talk from the health orgs about Type 2 diabetes is “managing it” not “curing” it in an individual.

  • It is irresponsible for you to make diet recommendations for people you have not made a health assessment on(i.e. people that are NOT your patients). There are people that are perfectly healthy eating meat and don’t have any risks to health because of their chosen lifestyle. In this paper the recommendation took into account that there is NO STRONG evidence that meat can have negative health consequences. The studies you are referring to to counter this are associative studies and not evidence that was born out of RCT. It is important to let your audience know the basis under which your evidence was interpreted because conversely you could be providing irresponsible information to people that are already healthy living on a meat based diet.

  • Meatard: I’m sure you do what your wife tells you!! As if a doctor in medical field is going to change his medical Trainings because his wife is in an organisation that promotes animal welfare, you seen film Gamechangers yet? Patrick Babourmian &Kenneth G.Williams. You might get some tips on a better pump.

  • Tbh I’m just gonna limit my red meat increase. I’m not stopping cause t-bones are delicious, but everything needs to be moderated anyway.

  • Should be ok. 2-2.5 mil years of evolutionary biology at work says meat is ok. As far as eating meat causing an increase in mortality? That’s a bunch of crap. I’ve been eating eggs and bacon 5 times a week for most of my life and just scored a 76 on my calcium heart scan. That means I have a 6% chance of getting a heart attack in the next 10 years. Now the process meat is a problem. All my meat comes from grass fed animals. Don’t listen to these clowns.

  • 90% of vegans do it for ethics and compassionincreased health is just a pleasant aside. Please watch to understand why.

  • Brilliant discussion and thank you so much for the honesty and integrity you uphold as decent doctors.
    (but the host could have a better haircut, what is wrong with looking as a man should?)

  • Eating red meat will not lead to an early death. ZERO evidence of that. Now, if we were to place a person in a controlled environment for YEARS, whereby the only thing the person does is eat red meat, then dies from his meat eating, then talk to me.

  • so for a number of years you have fed men and women processed meats and after many years they developed cancer, right? Is that how the study was done? Or are we talking about an epidemiological study which has no real scientific elements to it?

  • It causes cardiovascular disease obesity and high amounts of saturated fat which it could cause heart attacks.So his talkin bullshit.So red meat is not good for u.

  • How is cancer related to meat when cancer is related to sugar consumption. Everyone knows that since the sugar consumption has been going up for decades so has cancer rates in a straight line.

  • One reason why this Annals published study can claim what it does is the fact, that the harmful effects of saturated fats are negated by millions of people swallowing billions of tablets and undergoing various medical proceedured costing trillions.

  • You need sugary foods to survive? what kind of advice is this? You are incredibly irresponsible to say that. I have been on a keto diet for a year and I never felt better and I do not have diabetes and my fatty liver is completely healed. How is it possible to say that sugar is not responsible for diabetes. You are a criminal for saying that. Who is paying you the sugar industry?

  • Yes I’m going to promote plant based diets by becoming a plant based nutritional therapist. Thank you PCRM for all you have taught me. I cant thank you enough. I’m looking for case studies if anyone interested.

  • The fact that newborns are in nutritional ketosis at least as long as they on breast milk is interesting. The LCHF diet is the best diet for pregnant women and no doubt for growing children.

  • It’s enough to look at all these guys they all look great to understand that it’s one more proof for plant based animal products free diet.

  • Meat is addicting as when a person has trouble giving it up and would prefer to die or to even suffer major health complaints for the sake of getting their fix (a meat meal), then how is that NOT addicting?

    I could say to America: go cold turkey, but they’d think I was telling them to eat turkey meat, cold.

    Meat consumption appears to change the logic centers in the brain to be self-destructive. What do the animals get out of the arrangement? Death, and the humans are getting the same thing. The meat consumers are not extending life, they are extending their deaths. I do not fear dying, but I do not want to spend years in the process. Instead I intend to be healthy and fall asleep one day and wake up in heaven to the face of Jesus.

  • Gobby gabby�� it was for your basic benefit, I used that Simplistic example for ppl like you, & the irony of it, they done the test on a meat eating program The Truth About Food bbc1, I’m guessing they got together & thought what is the most basic way idiots can understand it��if the paper turns purple it is carcinogenic, obviously still not BASIC enough for YOU thou durrrrrr


    1) SCIENTIFIC REASON There is NOT A SINGLE one scientific study proving that meat and animal based products are bad or unhealthy for humans or cause any disease or illness. And evidence we have from many different science fields suggests the exact opposite, the more meat and animal products you eat the healthier, stronger and smarter you are, and you enjoy a longer lifespan. In fact, human history, evolution, anthropology, and our physiology and biochemistry ALL support that humans should be meat / animal based AND NOT plant based. According to the scientific evidence not a single human being in existence should ever be vegan, vegetarian or plant based. There is NOT A SINGLE ONE scientific proof showing that vegan / vegetarian / plant based diets are perfectly healthy for humans long term. We know for a fact that the highest quality and most nutrient dense foods for humans on this planet come directly from animals, not plants. Also, vegans often misrepresent the science and they try to create a false narrative that supports their own bias.

    2) ETHICAL REASON Ethics and morals are irrelevant when it comes to food and a diet, if you mix these things up, then you are on straight path to delusion, mental illness and religious fanaticism. If you are basing your decisions solely on emotional response and not on an objective assessment, facts and scientific evidence, you are a weak and gullible person that has been brainwashed by vegan / plant based propaganda. Your food requirements are dictated ONLY by your physiology and biochemistry, and not because of what you think is good for you, and not because of some false ideology. This whole sentence debunks and completely invalidates the entire vegan / plant based movement and exposes its core and roots as nothing more than a false ideology / personal belief system that is simply not grounded in either reality or science.

    3) ECONOMICAL REASON High quality and nutrient dense foods simply cost more than cheap and less nutritious foods. It is because high quality food requires more time and resources to be produced, plain and simple. Cheap and low quality food is for “slaves” or for those who want to live a suboptimal life and slowly starve themselves, get deficient and malnourished and simply deteriorate over time. In poor countries, when people get richer over time and when economy is flourishing, people tend to consume more meat and more animal based prodcuts and their life expectancy also increases. Cheap food is essentially a dog food. “Man is the only species clever enough to make his own food and the only one stupid enough to eat it.”

    4) ECOLOGICAL REASON Environmental impact of animal agriculture has been way overblown, all the claims from vegans and plant based advocates are either lies, misinformation or propaganda driven arguments. Movies like “Forks Over Knives”, “Cowspiracy”, “Earthlings” etc. are not science based, and all the claims made in these documentaries have been debunked many times before. Meat has essentially became a scapegoat for vegans, politicians and the media because of bad science that has been done around nutrition and climate change. There are of course some things that can be improved when it comes to animal agriculture, no one is denying that. But people should look into regenerative agriculture before they blindly buy into vegan lies and plant based propaganda and all the misinformation and pseudoscience that comes along with it. Unfortunately, vegans and plant based advocates are essnetially brainwashing people into believing falsehoods.

    5) FOOD FOR THOUGHT Things that people are not aware of because of brainwashing, indoctrination and domestication of a modern and westernized culture. Things that people are not aware of because they are weak, gullible and science illiterate.

    “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.”
    “The best slave is a slave that doesn’t know he’s a slave.”
    “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they’ve been fooled.”
    “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
    “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”
    “If you torture the data long enough, it will confess to anything.”
    “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth.”
    “Man is the only species clever enough to make his own food and the only one stupid enough to eat it.”

    6) THE MANY REASONS WHY… vegan, vegetarian and plant based diets are simply not suitable for humans. There is a reason why nearly 90% of vegans / vegetarians go back to eating meat and animal based products within 5 years. There is a reason why vegan and vegetarian diets are strongly linked to mental illness, mental health problems, depression, anxiety etc. There is a reason why both vegans and vegetarians are deficient in both essential and very important micronutrients when compared to the regular omnivorous population. There is a reason why most vegans end up being delusional and mentally ill, especially vegan activists. There is a reason why vegan and plant based diets require supplementation. There is a reason why vegan and vegetarian brains are shrinking over time and are smaller in comparison to people who are eating meat. There is a reason why since the introduction of an agricultural revolution that happened 10000+ years ago our health started deteriorating and our brains started shrinking. There is a reason why ancient Egyptians, who were vegetarians, had high incidence of heart disease. There is a reason why vegetables, grains, beans and fiber rot in your colon, causing bloating and gas, and meat doesn’t. There is a reason why high carb plant based diets cause tooth decay and rotting teeth. There is a reason why almost every animal on this planet is edible for humans, while almost all plants are poisonous to us.

    7) REALITY CHECK a natural human diet, a species specific diet for homo sapiens versus vegan, vegetarian and plant based ideological arguments can be easily summed up by these simple comparisons:

    # reality VS false ideology
    # science and scientific evidence VS flawed belief system and anti-science behaviour
    # logic and reason VS emotions, low level thinking, low level comprehension skills and religious fanaticism
    # predator and hunter mentality VS prey and sheep mentality

  • Yeah when I read one of the articles it basically said that  “The weak recommendation reflects the panel’s awareness that values and preferences differ widely, and that as a result, a minority of fully informed individuals will choose to reduce meat consumption.”.

    So it seems like they are acknowledging that a smart person might go vegan.

  • Did you guys hear her criticize the study because that their guidelines weren’t from a government agency? I grew up in the 80s and 90s. The government guidelines back then told us to eat more grains. Look at what happened. The population of the United States is now obese because of it. I don’t think anyone should listen to a government study. You see what CBS did here? They want us to be more trusting towards the government because government knows what is best. This report was garbage. People who cut carbs out of their diets are living healthy lifestyles than the rest of us. Vegans have to take medication to keep them alive and usually are skinny people. Not healthy skinny either. They look like bone sacks. People who eat just meat are fine.

  • … so we ignoring the fact how vegans just tend to be much more conscious about health and diet and consume less bullshit? Resulting in no overweight, non smokers, less alcohol..?

  • Eat everything in moderation. The holy Bible lays out clearly what we should eat. My uncle is 100 years old and he is still fond of meat. It’s God who decides the number of years for us on earth. So, eat in moderation and thank God.

  • The study shows the health claims against red meat is bullshit. Sorry vegans but it is obvious you don’t care about science and animal welfare is your only priority, so you try to fabricate reasons not to eat meat because nobody cares about the ethical argument. The study didn’t even claim red meat is healthy, it said the risk if any is so minuscule it pointless to exclude from your diet and you are fine to eat as much as you want.

  • Funny how the CSIRO in Australia have bought out three best selling books, all low carb, and the reason they didn’t stop with one is because of the huge response from that first one.

  • I never believed red meat was bad. Our ancestors ate meat for thousands of years., why would it be bad? Lol Such bad sciences. The scientists should research the millions of tonnes of invisible/tastesless hydrocarbons pumped out of vehicle exhaust systems into urban airspace, the historical curve probably matches with cancer rates.

  • Here’s a challenge…
    Carnivore: Eat only beef.
    Challenger: Pick any ONE plant on this earth and eat it exclusively.
    Rules: Consume nothing else but water.
    Meet in one year to get a complete blood panel and compare notes.

  • Great talk Peter, I’m wondering how some of these people sleep at night, happy to feather their own nest regardless of the health outcomes of sick people all so they can save face. It literally makes me sick.

  • Moronic arguments, stop BSing with the LDL cholesterol. High Insulin and glucose with high Lp(a) is the reason CVD.
    Low insulin and glucose with high LDL makes no difference to mortality.

  • More healthy user bias fallacy. This a known cause and correlation error. The Adventists are supposed to be vegetarian, do exercise and not drink and smoke. Of course the ones breaking one rule break the others on average. The mere fact the higher risk groups are overweight shows it all. The risk factor comes from being overweight not eating meat. What a bunch of known pseudoscience.

  • 1:35 meat eaters have a high BMI. That’s because when they east fast food, theY purchase a 300-calorie beef patty and 900 calories of vegan-friendly junk food (buns, special sauce, large fries, kethup, large Coke). BARNARD LIES AGAIN!

  • The UN wants people to eat less meat so their officials can enjoy it for themselves. Eat meat people, there is nothing wrong with it!

  • There was alot of misinformation entering the nutrition information since the 70s from people who think eating meat is immoral.
    most science is like this. climate “science” is just cover for Marxism.

  • Deuteronomy 12:23
    23Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh.

    24Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as water……”Eating blood is sin”.

  • Like a typical American Doctor, she just talked in circles. Round and round and round we go. To the point where the Journalists were getting upset with her.

  • starting out with high blood sugar then year or so low carb and now 115/65 blood pressure. Started with 350 Lbs now 195 lbs. 86 years old now sta00orted at 85 years

  • I question the promotion of “plant” based diets, probably in support of mock meat, as the plants-based food is made from wheat and soy not colourful vegetables like I had imagined.

  • I eat red meat exclusively (usually ribeye). Nothing else. Red meat, a multivitamin, a fish oil capsule, and half my body weight in oz of water (125oz) a day. Go to the gym daily, swim, run, etc.

    Sometimes trout or salmon makes its way into the diet.

  • When I read one of the study, I was like WTF? All the can claim was WEAK conclusion. And the media reported as it benefit to eat meat.

  • There is NOT sufficient evidence to support the claim that meat causes cancer, these guys are lying. Don’t trust anyone wearing a lab coat as a prop, people telling the truth don’t need props.

  • The real problem is we’re always given 2 or more sets of FACTS. So no one knows who to believe. This happened a few yrs back with the egg industry. Reports showed how dangerous they were for us and people took the warning to heart. As a result the industry lost about a billion dollars within the next month, then suddenly a NEW report came out stating how flawed the previous report was and eggs were safe again. Now the industry is well and fine, once again providing major $$$’s to coffers of the govt.

  • Yea let me enjoy turning into a plant based soy boy eating gmo processed burgers that look like meat because I’m actually truly craving meat

  • Most medical doctors should update their knowledge about cardiovascular diseases. Many new studies go against the old consensus that cholesterol, saturated fats and meat are bad for your heart. Many new studies show that too much sugar and fast GI carbs lead to CVD, cancer, neurodegenerativ diseases.

  • Funny how the government sponsored food & “health” agencies along with the media just happen to be promoting a campaign to dissuade people from eating red meat… just as genetically modified bioengineered lab-grown synthetic “meat” has started to be widely promoted & rolled out on the menu’s & meat isle of the biggest fast food hamburger franchises, restaurants & grocery stores nationwide. Rest assured, there are no coincidences when you have individuals like Bill Gates & Google co-founder Sergey Brin providing millions in funding to bring synthetic lab-grown fake meat to the masses. (But I bet you won’t see Gates or Brin ever eating one of those Impossible Burgers, except for maybe a pretend bite for a photo op.) No matter how bad they may claim eating natural red meat may be for your health… you can bet your life it’s still going to be 1000x’s healthier for you then consuming some synthetic genetically altered labgrown man-made fake burger, that has zero long term studies to prove consuming it wont be without its own adverse health effects… vs natural red meat which has been regularly consumed across the world for the past ten thousand years+. How often has consuming synthetic man-made creations ever turned to be healthier for us, then consuming the real unaltered organic counterparts that exist naturally & been available to us since the dawn of our existence?? Its the very adverse health effects we are increasingly realizing have come from consuming processed, synthetic, chemically laced, bioengineered & genetically modified diets, that has people increasingly seeing the profound benefits of a more natural & organic diet. Yet you watch which diet the government agencies & the mainstream media will support & promote as the “healthier”, “more humane” alternative to natural red meat.

  • This is why I call certain people drug addicts for food. They are literally willing to die because without these chemicals life just isn’t worth that much to them. Pathetic.

  • Hi to all. It looks clear to me that in AHS-2 study that you cited, the category of “meat eaters” its actually the Standard american diet, they are not healthy individuals per se, not because they are eating meat. they smoke and drink more alcohol, plus they excercise less… they were all with high BMI, that does mean meat cause obesity? of course not… and high BMI its known to cause or increase your risk for diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, and many other diseases so… Not a very interesting study doc. im not saying the first study you mention its good, im just critizicing your interpretation.

  • Thank you! I didn’t look up the study but was wondering what was going on in the media. That’s very helpful! But now, I feel like I want to actually look up the study. Do you have a link?

  • It’s mainly low grade, chronic inflammation that contributes to heart disease, cancer etc. Pycnogenol addresses oxidative stress and inflammation so well that they write medical journal articles singing its praise. You won’t hear about them from anyone in the medical field.

    AIM: This registry study aimed to evaluate the effects of supplementation with pycnogenol on altered endothelial function (EF) in borderline hypertensive, hyperlipidemic and hyperglycemic subjects without atherosclerotic changes in their main arteries and no coronary artery disease.

    Flow mediated dilatation (FMD) and endothelium-independent (EID) dilatation were measured with brachial ultrasound after occlusion. Also, after occlusion, laser Doppler (LDF) flux and distal straingauge flow were measured. Oxidative stress (oxstress) was evaluated at 8 and 12 weeks. 93 subjects with borderline symptoms were enrolled into the study: 32 hypertensives, 31 hyperlipidemics, 30 hyperglycemics. All participants were instructed to follow the best available management to control their symptoms. In addition to best management, half of the subjects in each group used 150 mg/day Pycnogenol(®). 31 normal subjects were included as control.
    After 12 weeks metabolic values and blood pressure were back to normal in all subjects. Values were slightly better under Pycnogenol(®). FMD increased after 8 weeks from an average 5.3;3.4% to 8.2;2.2% with a further increase to 8.8;3.1% (P<0.05) at 12 weeks. No effects were found in controls and normal subjects. EID of normal subjects was consistently higher with 26%. LDF skin flux increased with Pycnogenol(®) at 8 weeks and 12 weeks. The final flux increase was not different from normal values. In controls flux after occlusion was not improved at 8 weeks; there was a significant but minor increase at 12 weeks. Flux increases were superior in all Pycnogenol(®) subjects. In Pycnogenol(®) subjects, limb flow after occlusion increased at 8 weeks with a further increase at 12 weeks. In controls inclusion flow after occlusion was comparable at 8 and 12 weeks. Oxidative stress was significantly decreased in Pycnogenol(®) subjects at 8 and 12 weeks. Minor differences were observed in controls.
    This open registry study indicates that Pycnogenol(®) improves EF in preclinical, borderline subjects in a macro-microcirculatory model. This observation may suggest an important preventive possibility for borderline hypertensive, hyperglycemic and hyperlipidemic subjects. 

    The Effect of Pycnogenol Supplementation on Plasma C-Reactive Protein Concentration: a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
    Nikpayam O, et al. Clin Nutr Res. 2018.

    Pycnogenol is a standardized extract from the bark of the French maritime pine. The aim of the present systematic review and meta-analysis was to clarify the effect of Pycnogenol supplementation on C-reactive protein (CRP) concentration. To identify eligible studies in order to find clinical trials which examined the effect of Pycnogenol supplementation on the level of CRP in adult participants, PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar were systematically searched until December 2017. Mean of CRP was collected to estimate the effect size of the supplementation. Potential sources of heterogeneity were explored by subgroup analysis. Five trials including 324 participants were included in this meta-analysis. 

    Pooled effect size showed significant effect of Pycnogenol supplementation on CRP (-1.22 mg/dL, 95% confidence interval, -2.43, -0.003; I2 = 99%, pheterogeneity < 0.001). When the meta-analysis was subgrouped by dose of Pycnogenol, heterogeneity was attenuated in > 150 mg/d category (I2 = 0.0%, p = 0.42). There was significant difference between-subgroup heterogeneity (p < 0.001). Furthermore, no evidence of publication bias for CRP (p = 0.27, Begg's test and p = 0.62, Egger's test) was seen. 
    Present systematic review and meta-analysis suggested Pycnogenol consumption can decrease the level of CRP and have anti-inflammatory effect. So, Pycnogenol as an anti-inflammatory agent might be a priority in interventions. Further studies with large-scale and better design are needed to confirm this result.

    Variations in Echogenicity in Carotid and Femoral Atherosclerotic Plaques with Pycnogenol + Centella Asiatica Supplementation

    Gianni Belcaro, PhD and Umberto Cornelli, MD
    Additional article information
    This registry study evaluated echogenicity of carotid–femoral plaques in asymptomatic subjects with increased oxidative stress and risk factors (mild hypertension, hypercholesterolemia). Supplementation with the combination Pycnogenol–CA (centella asiatica) on the echogenicity of plaques was assessed at 6 months (79 subjects). A standard management (SM) plan was used in all subjects (control of risk factors, lifestyle changes); 36 subjects used the supplements +SM; 43 SM only. The groups were comparable. High-resolution ultrasound evaluated echogenicity and plaque structure. Pycnogenol (150 mg/day) and CA (Centellicum, 450 mg/day) were used.

    At 6 months, cholesterol was reduced (p < 0.05) in both groups (difference between groups not significant). At 6 months, plasma free radicals were decreased with the supplements (17.64%; p < 0.05; vs <2% in controls). The plaque stability index increased from 11.22;2.3 to 22.4;1.1 (p < 0.05) with the supplements; no significant changes were seen in controls. Plaque echogenicity (% of “whiter” component in images) increased with supplementation from 16.7;1.7% to 34.2;2% (p < 0.05); no variations were observed in controls. The maximum plaque height decreased (p < 0.05) with the supplements. No significant variations were observed in controls. Plaque length was decreased (p < 0.05) in the supplement group with no changes in controls. The number of plaques (carotid, femoral bifurcations) decreased with supplementation; no significant changes were observed in controls. No adverse events, tolerability problems, or variations in routine blood tests were recorded. The combination Pycnogenol–CA appears to improve echogenicity and stability of complex plaques in six months.

  • They’re wrong right? just like the food pyramid was right? All those recommendations over the years that end up being completely wrong

  • Vegans tend to be more healthy in general though, they pay more attention to what they eat in general, the average person in western countries is overweight and eats terribly so it makes sense that meat eaters would have higher chances of all these bad things, are there studies that show a person who eats a healthy diet and lifestyle with some meat vs a person who eats a healthy diet and lifestyle with no meat have significant health differences?

  • in the blue zone diet books, the author wrote in the Adventist study they found the more people ate meat the more unhealthy foods like soda, coca-cola they drank. could that be a part cause of the BMI difference aswell

  • People who want to fool themselves, just because they like meat, once they read some research which supports what they like, they just close their eyes and ears to all other research.
    And this type of research that encourages people to eat meat is probably funded by Big organisations (demonic, selfish companies) who know that eating meat is bad for health, but reducing meat is bad for their business… so they don’t want people to reduce meat! It is logical. And gullible people accept this research, and stuff corpses into their bodies… just for the craving of their 2 inch tongue!!!

  • But do you really want to eat violently slaughtered cows and pigs? Thiese videos made me permanently lose my appetite for meat.

  • People that don’t eat meat is like a lesbian that doesn’t have meat in their life. It makes them angry and bitter. Makes em crazy. Like soy boys.

  • So we just only pic the scientist we like and discard everything else it’s not the meat it’s the oil sauce and crap u put on it no wonder people are so confused any more

  • Dan Blah blah the utube film is called Hope, not nope��have you seen it yet, & where did you qualify as a cancer doctor!!!! I didn’t think so!!!!!!

  • please stop the fake doctor Eric Berg
    thanks for your videos ����

  • Look we are not out here eating raw meat guys it is not red after it is cooked, that is about all i eat anymore is meat but i cook it obviously, who is eathing red meat anyway?

  • There is more money behind plant based diets than there is behind the meat and dairy industry.

    Its sugar and pharma vs meat and agriculture. Both have stakes in the game, both fudge the hell out of their research, and both have governmental powers at play.

    There are healthy people on both sides but one thing is for 100% sure sugar is addictive, it is used to cover the awful taste of low fat foods, and it wreaks absolute havoc on your cardiovascular, endocrine, and digestive systems. No one says eating a sugar based diet is good in fact we could live without eating sugar. Cholestrol aides in healing the damage caused by sugar in the arteries but when you have insulin resistance the sugar doesnt get pulled out of your blood so the cholestrol keeps building up trying to heal your arteries. Then what happens? Heart attack. Stroke. Plaques. And it’s all blamed on cholestrol.

    Eat a balanced diet. Vegan doesnt offer all the nutrients you need for basic survival without supplements making it a poor dietary choice. The 7th day adventists dont live long because of their diet.. they live long because they dont smoke and they are required to exercise.

    Take Everything with a grain of salt especially biased news sources like this channel.

  • You cant just take correlations like that and say they are causal, seems like an easy take on a difficult topic.
    I feel much better after cutting down carbs, and sticking to low fat meats or fish plus a lot of veggies, isnt the kind of meat really important relating to health issues?

  • Ohh yeah just think of all the early human who almost exclusively ate meat. They were all always having heart attacks, getting cancer, and were fat and had terrible teeth. (Sarcasm)

  • It’s amazing how adamant the carnivore diet promoters are. They actually think those of us not eating animal products are mentally ill.

  • meanwhile For the last 10 months I have been carnivore (dirty version a bit) and have saved my own life from congestive heart disease and also have lost 85 lbs as a bonus. Those liars almost killed me! I am eating cheapo bacon and eggs right now with 2 small slices of avocado (there is the dirty part-LOL). When I stick to pure carnivore I do even better physically! But I have PTSD and it is hard and I just admit I am not perfect and move on!

  • Caveman and ancient humans are in their graves eating tons of meat and thinking: God, what the hell this modern dumb are doing?

  • She summed it up wrong at the end when she said: “…do not change what you’re doing right now. Continue to limit red and processed meat”. That first sentence doesn’t belong in front of the second one. At least in the United States, you don’t have to look very hard to see that most people aren’t limiting anyting. if you tell the average person to “not change what they are doing right now” that would mean they will continue to eat meat like three times a day.

  • You only showed correlations and not causalities. People who eat a lot of red meat disproportionally also eat a lot of sugar, bad fats and too much in general. That has nothing to do with the meat. Also, who would ever link meat (protein) to diabetes type 2 which is purely created by consuming too many carbs over a long period? That is hurting your argument about red meat.

  • Red meat is very bad for human consumption.Crap is wat his sayin ask any doctors they tell u to much red meat is highly bad for humans.Not good for the heart. He hasnt a clue wat his talkin about.

  • Of course the foods human have been eating for millennia are bad for us. Naturally! Tis obvious that for all these many centuries since we came down from the trees we should have only eaten vegetables and fruits whichalso of course were available year-round and in sufficient quantities everywhere humans lived even during the so-called Ice Ages. Nevermind that chimps, bonobos, baboons and several species of new world monkeys also eat meat no, humans must be totally like gorillas and the even more primitive lemurs. When you base your dietary beliefs upon associative epidemiological studies and NO RCTs, you will make mistakes. Plants are carbohydrates and no human ever needs to eat any carbohydrates none, nada, zip, zilch. For humans carbohydrates are NON-essential. See gluconeogenesis. Biochemistry should determine what you eat, not ideology. Barnard needs to stop talking rubbish.

  • Wow, did not expect the comments and like/dislike ratio to be that positive, considering this videos blatant disregard for science.

  • Wondering when someone in ketoland will, in the face of a viral pneumonia pandemic, look into suggesting support options for a major complication. Any reason to think it would not help with supportive care in acute cases?

  • Dr Barnard, Dr Campbell, Dr Esselstyn, Dr Klapper, Dr Mcdougal, Dr Fuhrman, Dr Gregor, and the other plant based whole foods advocates. They saved my life!

  • Fake news by the media not in the good old USA! Don’t listen to these Vegan Nazis! Everybody please continue to eat plenty of red meat and wash it down with a ice cold glass of whole milk!

  • Where did Neal Barndarn get the numbers he is citing at 5:20? Is he citing one of the studies that the paper analysed? Because I could not find that in the published article.

  • I think he did not analysing his teeth while infront of mirror we have two type of teeth carnivores teeth and herbivores teeth, the cow is eating herbs the god did not give thw carnivores teeth.and if you analyse the digestive system of cow it can’t digest the non veg not even dairy accept to a age.
    If you analyse the teeth of a lion it only have carnivores teeth and the digestive system of carnivores animal is totally different from herbivores animal so hence prooved
    Human being are carnivores as well as herbivores living being on this earth,Please don’t tell us you are more intelligent than our creator, our lord almighty Allah who knows best about science and our lord allows us to be carnivores so we are thankful to some intelligent fools who are giving up this super food which is helpful in keep its price stable we are really thankful to all of you for not having non veg for your weird reason that will help people to have more to those who loves it and respect our lord for allowing us to slaughter the cattle for food.

  • LOL! Vegan propaganda from a malnourished stick-figure. Of course those people are sick. They are consuming processed garbage, along with, perhaps, other lifestyle behaviors that are detrimental. Veganism, or vegetarianism, is not the answer. Eat animals raised in their natural environment and you will thrive.

  • Loved the chat although I am English and really don’t need reminding. My diabetes nurse when I said I had gone Keto was a stern look and the comment “oh that’s where you starve yourself”, needless to say I am having to work on my own to clear my T2D, my GP is quiet and just doing the tests. My Glucose went from 76mmol/L to 61 after just 6 weeks not eating a high carb diet/low fat diet, my next test is in May.

  • I’m 50 yr old…grew up next to a dairy and cattle farm, we had chickens and a few pigs….all my family have lived into late 90s and some a little over 100, my home town it is rare someone dies before 85…these people have no idea what they are talking about

  • Neal Barnard’s lack of honesty is astounding. There is very little good science around nutrition. He’s clearly against eating meat for ethical reasons. The notion that meat causes cancer or any other inflammatory disease is crazy we’re made of meat for goodness sake. Cut processed sugar and seed oils. Vegan to 100% carnivore, both have valid arguments. Neal’s wearing a white coat because his arguments lack credibility. He’s meant to care about the truth!

  • Why must plant-based diet advocates LIE? Do they count on swaying the gullible people who can’t be bothered doing their own research? What the report ACTUALLY said was that the link between meat consumption and all of these diseases was so weak that it wasn’t worth giving up meat. You’ve misrepresented the facts, Dr. Barnard.

  • With all due respect, the conclusion from this new unbiased study is actually the following “Lowto very-low-certainty evidence suggests that diets restricted in red meat may have little or no effect on major cardiometabolic outcomes and cancer mortality and incidence.” Here’s the link >

  • Global cooling….global warming…….climate change…….climate catastrophe… a couple of years……red meat will be bad for you……again….

  • Another generation or two with epidemic diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome and obesity and the establishment might even change another whole sentence in the guidelines. ��‍♂️

  • Funny people that are on a keto diet For a lot of years. Have lost hundreds are down Cholesterol is down diabetes has disappeared and after years of knowing people know cancer of course that’s not to cut out all vegetables by no means that’s cutting out carbohydrates gmo process grains

  • The fact that trolls are starting to swarm vegan youtube comments sections makes me feel that things are moving in the right direction. Keep up the great work Dr Barnard.

  • With respect to diabetes, Dr. Barnard is telling only part of the story here. He didn’t mention how & why the fat gets into the muscle fibers causing fatty skeletal muscle and into the liver causing fatty liver and eventually into the pancreas causing fatty pancreas. The driving force behind these events is persistent chronic hyperinsulinemia, which is caused by constant stimulation of the pancreatic beta cells by the continued intake of carbohydrates and to a lesser extent proteins. Insulin promotes hepatic de novo fat synthesis (lipogenesis), fatty liver, fat export to and storage in ectopic sites (e. g., muscle & pancreas) in addition to other visceral & subcutaneous adipose tissue sites. So, it’s not just dietary fat heading straight to clog muscle fibers preventing the entry of glucose and causing diabetes.

  • He is misrepresenting the studies and promoting anti-meat sentiment even when the meta analysis don’t find any strong *correlation*, don’t even mind causation, between meat and any chronic disease.

    !!!!!!! STOP THE LIES!!!!!! Those epidemiological studies are NOT SCIENCE. They do not take into account MANY confounding factors like the carbohydrate poisonous plant-based foods & desserts, smoking, alcohol & more. They rely on peoples memory which relies on their guess on portions producing precisely ZERO useful data. Talk to Dr Shawn Baker or you are exposed as shills.

  • I’m going to eat what I want to,drink what I want to” especially with the NFL season started. Once you start researching happiness maybe you’ll get a clue. No stress live longer it’s not rocket science.

  • My family on both sides has had zero cancer over at least 4 generations. No vegetarians/vegans. But no one smokes or drinks alcohol.

  • What about the Maasai people who have carnivore diets and have low blood pressure, low cholesterol rates, and low rates of coronary artery diseases. I think cutting out processed and junk food is far more important than cutting out red meat.

  • Interesting how this movement continues to refuse to separate factory farmed meat vs. grass-fed pastured meat ad wild game. Meaning, none of you actually have any science to back up your statements, because you are not using scientific integrity in your argument. I see three globalist shills who are pushing a GMO agenda.

  • Who was observed? How many people were studied? Were other parts of the diet controlled (I doubt it.)? Is the data analysis presented as overall risk, or relative risk? Who did the data analysis? Who is interpreting the data? Keep in mind, a good mathematician can make fresh air look bad.

  • Cattlemen & beef producers must’ve paid off a journalist from the Annals of Internal Medicine to release these guidelines. Because they’re worried that the future generation won’t be red meat eaters but vegetarians. Just a hunch.

  • I am 88 years old vegan 18 months, and I had no problems going vegan once I understood there was no need to eat meat or dairy for your health, I was over the moon, then did all my research, and found good nutritious recipes,, on YouTube, Dr Neil Barnard, was the first wonderful person tho inspired me, I don’t need medication or vitamins, except B 12, after always in pain and taking painkillers, and tablets for high blood pressure, and the best of being vegan no more suffering of animals, because of me, thank you,, please keep up this great worthwhile work,

  • Mahakala lol Vegans look beautiful inside &out ��Have you seen all those athletes in the film Gamechangers on Netflix?type in vegan athletes ��don’t say silly things��you watch Cowspiracy utube &Stella me who is pretty!!!!

  • If I can choose to say this far and no further, or this far and 6 months further, with years of glyco damage behind me, I choose the former.

  • Which people are they studying?!? I’ve been on their crappy dietary advice for 40 years and it led me to obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure! Great for them as they’re all earning by selling me loads of pills with no chance to ever come off it if I only keep following their guidelines. Anyway, following keto and intermittent fasting has normalised my a1c, blood pressure and cholesterol. I’ve also lost over 50 pounds by eating great food and not starving myself. Now my GP is worried his money source is dwindling and he’s started telling me that I’ll be suffering severe side effects long term by not eating enough carbs… yeah right. I actually think this borders on criminality by a group of people who we are supposed to be able to trust to help us get healthier! They’re making us very sick instead! I’m just really angry about what’s going on…

  • First ��

    For authentic change to take root the old guard and their debunked notions have to exit the stage first!

    Next publicly funded dietary research doing RCTs where the researchers are paid from public funds and have not conflicts of interest would help to restore the value of “official dietary advise”.

  • One of the mistakes I made as a vegan was believing information like this. I was in denial. I never thought about the whole story. Red meat is so very vague. Beef, lamb, deer and pork are all red meats. Processed meats, fast food and non-processed meats are red meats. Factory farmed meat, genuine grass fed meat and wild meat are all red meats. You see, you cannot just lump everything together. Majority of population are consuming high carb, high sugar diet with low quality animal products. I am convinced after being vegan myself that animal fat is healthy, all sugar is unhealthy and all processed oils are poison

  • I mean….do you think ANYONE listens to ANYTHING any of you say anymore? Every year its “THIS is terrible for you!!” Then “Oh….no its not”. Bacon, wine, red meat, pork, caffeine, blah blah blah. You clearly have NO IDEA what you’re talking about if its horrible on minute then fine the next. You’ve lost all credibility. Eat whatever the f%ck y’all want ��

  • There is no requirement for humans to eat meat or any animal product to live a very long healthy life. Leave the poor animals alone and let our earth heal before its too late to reverse the damage already done.

  • No it is not. The bible says. Blood is the soul of a person. Meat must be washed clean and cooked well done. The Book of Leviticus

  • All I can say is spread the word folks! At some point people will see the truth and realize their doctors are either corrupt or just ignorant. It amazes me every single day how much crappy food surrounds us (in the stores, restaurants, on the teli commercials) Imagine…instead of junkfood and refined carbs & sugars they just sell and prepare healthy foods. Such a crazy idea right? Well I guess it‘s really up to us to teach our kids and help our friends/family understand. Living LCHF, IF, OMAD, LC-Vegan, Carnivore will save humanity! No more suffering, just living. Help those you know with Diabetes, Dimentia, Cancer. It will be hard, but don’t give up. Also disease prevention should be on the agenda, not just reacting when they are already sick. We‘ve got lots to do people ��

  • Eating real food that is meats and vegetables keeps us healthy, it’s the industrial processed sugars and processed junk packaged foods with preservatives that causes all the diseases, cancers and disorders in the body

  • Klaus I love your work but please don’t fall for the clickbait bullshit that so many other sites do. The wording of “Expert: Slam” just makes you sound cheap and I know you’re not.

  • Follow the money people! It is obvious where these reports emanate from…MONEY! Be it drugs or big industry..twist the numbers torture the stats anything to get the result they aim for. You believe this and I got a bridge to sell.

  • The problem is there is no definitive answer. Proponents of low carb meat based diets can tell just as compelling of a story about how organic meat is good for you and back it up with evidence. There is no way to know for sure. Moderation and healthy whole food choices seem to be best.

  • Lol meat sales must be down. I ya China is not buying anymore, now its good for you lol. The commercialized cows we get at the grocery store where are they found in the wild? I’ll wait….

  • So how come vegans don’t eat grass? I see cows eating grass, I watched the game changers movie and they said ox’s are strong because they eat grass. Why are none of you eating grass? It’s free, sustainable and in an abundance.

  • What a disgrace you ppl are. I have been on the carnivore diet for 4 months, my energy levels have picked up, my sugar is now in normal ranges and i have lost a lot of weight, not to mention my brain function is so much better. You ppl are a disgrace all you want is sick ppl, it makes more money for you.

  • Pasture raised beef and processed meats are totally different, so the statement itself tells you they don’t know what they are talking about. All the medical associations and societies and medical schools were either started by Seventh day adventists or are funded by the huge money which is plant based agenda. Monsanto-Bayer is plant based, you don’t need herbicides or pesticides to raise cattle. Kellog, Kraft, all the huge drug companies, chemical companies that make ethanol from corn all the huge money is plant based, the cattle industry is tiny,tiny tiny compared with them. Heart disease is not caused by cholesterol, actually saturated animal fat from good sources is the key to good health. Vegetable oils and fats are the enemy and cause inflammation that causes heart disease and cancer. The low fat cut down on red meat info is CAUSING the skyrocketing chronic diseases. you need fats, fats are healthy if you eat only plants you will have to get your fats from plant sources, all your fat in the body will be made up of plant fats which is foreign to the human body. Sugar is plant based, carbohydrates and cheap grains are plant based. If you buy into the low fat,no red meat or any animal products you will have to eat sugar and carbs for energy instead of fats which contain fat soluble vitamins. Sugar causes diabetes and cancer, drug companies want you to keep consuming sugars and grains.

  • Thank you for posting a rebuttal to the latest “noise” from the animal agriculture industry. I saw a segment this morning on the “news” (I guess that’s what we’re still calling it) spouting that eating red meat is “perfectly healthy”. Guess that depends on your definition.

    Are you 400 lbs. over weight? No, then you are “perfectly healthy”.

    It’s going to take a long, long time to get it into people’s heads about the science behind sound nutrition, but I think we’re making some great strides and information like this is certainly moving that progress along. Thanks Doctor!

  • This woman is such a shill for statin drugs etc. It”s disgusting for her to point to confounding factors in the same breathe point to “research” that is nothing but confounding factors

  • The hormone-injected, chemically fed beef you eat now is NOT what your ancestors ate. Stop comparing what is in the store to the wild meats they caught occasionally. Ugh, some people…����‍♀️��‍♀️����‍♀️��‍♀️

  • This seems like a stock trap because the meatless burgers are getting a lot of attention and they need to tip the scale fast..sorry I don’t buy the study, I like what this Dr. Said here, it makes a lot more sense.

  • I’m vegan 1.5yrs now. I found quitting meat and all dairy eggs etc didn’t have such a dramatic impact on my health for a year. Cholesterol was close to the same. But I was eating transitional vegan foods like vegan burgers and french frieshigh fat vegan. Only when I went low fat vegan did I see a stark drop in cholesterol and inflammation. Weight loss too. My take is that while I’ll never go back to meat, I believe that s lot of what’s bad about meat is what people eat with it. A few ounces of meat chicken or fish a couple of times a week isn’t going to be harmful. I personally wont do that because it’s a slippery slope (one meat dish would lead to more and more relaxed standards) and also I’m sold on fruits and veggies as a healthy satisfying and ethical diet.

  • They’re talking like 4 -6 oz. servings which to the average American would be quite small.

    We’re talking steak say Friday or Saturday night, hot dogs (2 max or 1 of those big fat ones) at the little league game on Sunday, and a burger midweek. This is assuming you’re not eating a processed meat sandwich every day at lunch at work, bacon or ham each breakfast, tons of sausage on your pizza etc etc yadda yadda in other words, the kind of eating most Americans do.

  • You are trying to claim that all the epidemiology based “research” that has led people to correlate meat consumption with disease is factual. Wrong. Fail.

  • All these guys look like they could use a burger. ( without the bun and coke for their health.) Let’ s hear where Dr. Barnard’s funding comes from.

  • Following the advice of the American Diabetes Association since I was diagnosed with T1D in 1970 really damaged by health. What I’d like to do to them is illegal and immoral…

  • I disagree, look at the Inuit and their diet which until recently has been a mostly red meat diet. Not to mention my own traditional diet consisted of deer and fish heavily, unlike the Inuit my people lived in woodlands and had access to plenty of other wild fruits and veggies buy yet we still depended mostly on meat for our substance. We survived and still thrived on such a diet. As do many tribal societies around the world.

  • That this study wasn’t done by the government makes me 100% believe the results. The government was responsible for the infamous food pyramid that made America fat and sick. The American heart association is the biggest scam ever.

  • Both sides are correct. If I eat low carb (Keto or Atkins) OR high carb, I get back to 4.2 sugar level. However the moment I combine fat and carbs, then my sugar levels skyrocket. I have tested this on 3 others. Why aren’t both the teams looking into working together on this?

  • I live near factory farms. The things they put in the fields are of concern. Its big business, just like the meat business. Big corporations are all the same. Watch out.

  • I’m actually not only disappointed in The NY Times for publishing this garbage, but thoroughly disgusted. Don’t they know that people look to them for valid, reality-based journalism?!

  • Vegans cannot accept the truth simply because it goes against their religion….

    ‘Statisticians have broadly supported the way the study has been conducted. Kevin McConway, emeritus professor of applied statistics at the Open University, called it an “extremely comprehensive piece of work”. And Prof David Spiegelhalter, from the University of Cambridge, said: “This rigorous, even ruthless, review does not find good evidence of important health benefits from reducing meat consumption

    “In fact, it does not find any good evidence at all.”

  • These institutions are bought and paid for by big pharma and big food. Once we take controle of our health, they will lose trillions and a lot of power. Keep up the good fight ������

  • Vegans are hypocrites because they say nothing about abortion? Their arguments against suffering animals means nothing in light of the killing of children by the millions.

  • So explain this to me I’ve been eating meat everyday almost twice a day and what have you and I’m super healthy no heart issues know anything and I’m 54 I do trt because of age-related but otherwise I have nothing else so what does that mean

  • Every case of a human choking to death while eating has been while eating meat. Watch animals eat. Herbivores chew their food up. Carnivores eat meat in chunks. If we don’t cook and use plants to add flavor to meat, we can’t eat it.

  • Curious, but the article doesn’t say it’s healthy, it states there are no health risks. Being hyperbolic and disingenuous. Barnard’s looking very slight.

  • Okay, 2.5 years low carb, 6 months Keto, and the results are: Fasting insulin: 1.4 / HOMA-IR: 0.3 / BMI 23.6. Like Mr. James Brown used to say: I feel good!
    Thanks, Peter.

  • 3:01 i cured my kidney failure within 2 months after eating keto. going from a creatine clearance of 58 to one of 118…. so yeah it might heal your kidney failure within 2 months, very dangerous. according to my MD I am cured of my Kidney condition, she said that hesitantly at the end of our talk Mr you basically dont have kidney failure no more

  • Very good, thanks. The previous video on this subject which was in an interview format was quite long. Of course good in its way but this one is good to share just to briefly and clearly make the point.

  • Omg she’s still pushing the fat causes arteries to block. Wonder who pays her? The food pyramid made so many Americans fat and sick. Look at the portion of fat in the French diet vs their weight and heart disease. Its completely the opposite of what she says.

  • So we have been eating meat for hundreds of thousands of years and now we are getting cancer from it? This is a ridiculous assumption and all the studies in the world do not prove that at all.

  • Of course is good, unless us not being inspected properly cause that statement “The Meat may be ok” doesn’t sound to reassuring..��

  • Have you ever noticed on TV when the Keto comes up the host always “Oh that’s fat oh no I couldn’t” and the subject is dropped right away. It never occurs to them that a nice bowl of blueberries and cream with coffee and cream might be nice. Or bacon and eggs for brekkie. NO! It’s just FAT…….

  • Don’t miss thisone that is very positive… I would love to see Western Australia changing the world ��.$file/EHSC+Report+6+The+Food+Fix+FINAL.pdf

  • All these years of avoidence! Make my steak medium rare and fast. I want to enjoy it before the climate change takes me out! Another UN agenda 21 position we can kick to the curb!!

  • Fenando a What’s the difference between FACTS & propaganda��the latter is untrue, do you think the filmCowspiracy is a fairy tale!!! 2ndly I do not medically!! Understand all that you listed physiological etc That’s why we take facts from qualified doctors��which you are not. As for his wife in an organisation that promotes the health of animals, SO WHAT, I doubt DOCTOR Barnard is held capture by his wife &forced into anything, he has been in the medical world for over 40yrs, idiot!!!!! as you so rudely say, So you didn’t have the *****to watch Cowspiracy ��a 5min FACTUAL film, go on, it’s just a few facts.

  • The recommendations for unsaturated fats and against children prove that these agencies are still evil to the greatest extent they think they can get away with.

  • I wonder how much money was thrown at these 14 shills for the meat industry? Look into that and you a have real story on your hands. Anybody with half a brain knows today that consuming the quantity of meat most Americans eat is bad for your health. The American Meat Industry know that more and more people are shying away from eating meat and in fact there has been a slight decline in meat consumption and that is cause for them to subsidize another study aimed at trying to convince you that meat is good for your body.

  • They see the vegan rising so now they try to brainwashed people to think red meat is good because they starting losing money this world is crazy when you start to read between the line this world can end right now ��

  • We have to balance both animal and plant proteins, that way we can be healthy and in good shape.

    * Doctors just MISLEAD people
    * Doctors became good business advertisers
    * Doctors can give you their stamp and signature so you can run you business!



    BE A VEGAN, BECAUSE ANIMALS ARE INNOCENT is just ridiculous to believe! Kkkk

    Enjoy your animal and plant
    Proteins, exercise and appreciate God almighty

  • Neal says ‘meat is bad, mmmmmmkay’? He also lies and misrepresents the science while he’s at it of course…

  • Well…the sugar industry isn’t going away quietly, after all. Thank goodness my local grocery stores are stocking more low-carb foods.
