5:15 Check out my video on the benefits of real meat!

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.

    • @Astral106 on February 11, 2024 at 2:07 pm

      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

      Good point & I’ve often wondered the same. For starters “most” our ancient ancestors ate “garden to table” and also ate a lot more organ meats a/k/a they ate “nose to tail.” Plus, they got a lot more daily exercise & direct sunlight. Agricultural soils were also less depleted of nutrients & toxins were nowhere as prevalent as they are today.
