I saw this last night, has anyone else seen it?


I'm not sure what to think... legit or just vegan propaganda?


How much of this is really true?

I think there is probably some truth to it, but I also think it is a lot of pro-vegan propaganda. Yes, we should all eat more vegetables and fruit. But just being vegan is not necessarily healthy. French fries are vegan. Many of the vegan products are just a load of chemicals made to look and taste like meat. Honestly, I think just eating meat is probably healthier than these franken-foods.

I think our entire food supply just needs to be cleaned up. I don't think there is anything wrong with meat. But I do think there is something wrong with meat leaded with antibiotics, and injected with a bunch of crap to make it look better and last longer. Just like I think there is nothing wrong with tomatoes. But I do think there is something wrong with tomatoes that are picked when they're still green, artificially preserved, and then injected with chemicals to make them look and taste ripe. If you've ever had a tomato that was grown with natural seeds and no chemicals, they taste nothing like the tomatoes you buy at the grocery store.

I don't think meat is the problem. I have personally greatly improved an autoimmune disease with a basically Paleo diet. True, I eat a lot of vegetables, but I also eat a ton of meat. But I make sure it's grass-fed, pastured, and organic as much as possible. Veggies are organic as much as possible. I buy from small local farmers. As a side effect, I've also lost weight, and my cholesterol has gone down and is now ideal. According to this film, a meat-heavy diet will cause that number to go up. Not true.

I think everyone should aim to just eat real food, not processed crap.

It has been thoroughly been debunked. Even some prominent YouTube vegans thinks it's garbage.

Yes, there are bad practices. But do you think this guy was going to show you the good practices?

And there is no health reason to be a vegan. None. Nada.

I agree and hope my grandgirl in her 3rd yr of college is keeping her health up. So much peer pressure when one spreads their wings.

I have a 90 yr old neighbor friend who claims to be vegan and she's a bag of bones and as we age we need more fat on us... She's fallen a couple times in recent years and ended up with fractures.

It's for compassion for animals that most choose vegan.

The issue is the suffering of animals. Of course, if you don't care about that, there's little more to be said.

Is that the one where eating meat magically causes all kinds of health ailments like diabetes and cancer?

Because my coworker wanted to know why diabetes is so prevalent in countries where many people are vegetarian and do not eat tons of animal products. (Like her home country.)
