In this video, we’re going to talk about plant-based meat. Plant-based meat is marketed as clean meat. People are gravitating to these fake meats because of claims that real meat causes cancer and other chronic diseases.

The studies that were used to draw these conclusions were food questionnaires and observational studies. Out of 800 studies on the topic, researchers claiming that meat was bad only focused on 17.

An evaluation of the studies linking red meat to cancer by the Annals of Internal Medicine concluded that the evidence linking red meat consumption to cancer and cardiovascular disease is too weak to recommend that we eat less of it.

New guidelines say we don't need to change our meat habits. No significant link between meat consumption and heart disease, diabetes, or cancer has been found.

Plant-based meat is full of ultra-processed ingredients like seed oils, soy, modified food starches, and GMO ingredients. Claims that plant-based meat is identical to real meat are completely false. Metabolomic studies have shown key differences in 171 out of 190 compounds in fake meat compared to real meat.

      Vegans kill more animals than a carnivores. To grow plants means to kill THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS. all the cute mice, cute frogs, cute bugs. THE tractor kills all the fuzzy animals. But a carnivore only needs one cow living in its natural grassland habitat. Eating a vegan diet means the direct cause of animal deaths way more than carnivore. Fact

      So if you care about animals be a carnivore because vegans kill way more animals. This is truth.

    • @Astral106 says:

      It is not that they don’t want to hear otherwise. It is that their believe/body wouldn’t allow them too. Also, I no longer can eat meat, but I Crave it and I know I need the nutrients from it, but because I can’t eat it. I eat this junk to substitute because there is not a lot of things better. 😢 in our fast pace world being a vegetarian is so not healthy when you have a busy life and don’t have time to prepare meals ahead of time due to living conditions or situations.

      For some people it is a choice to not eat something. For others it is just because their body is different and they cannot eat what others can

    • @Astral106 says:

      @dontfit6380  suddenly my body can’t take it anymore. I thought it was just me. But lately more and more people are having that problem. Suddenly, the texture feels different and it smell weird. Lol I was so mad when it first started. I am a foodie. Love eating. At first I used to crave my favorite food. But when I went to eat it. The very thought of putting it in my mouth makes me want to throw up and I lost my appetite.

      Hahaha I went through stages of grief at first 😅 but now …I don’t mind not eating meat. I feel different. I just wish the alternative is not so bad for you and tastes better. Or cheaper lol. It is very inconvenient and a struggle some days when you are so busy and can’t just pop by anywhere and grab something quick and go.

      Lol between a nice juicy drum and a fries. I prefer the drum, I think it is way healthier than a fries. Oh well. It is what it is😅
