“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.
