Is Meat Bad for You? Is Meat Unhealthy?

Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
Here are our sources: It is very fascinating to see that the both extremes, vegans and people on meat heavy diets hate this video. Usually we are attacked more from one direction – in this cases both ends of the spectrums are really upset. Anything relating to nutrition is very controversial unfortunately. Someone on twitter posted this: There is research showing strong links between dietary choices and social identity:

So if you want to, you can find sources telling you that every kind of diet is bad for you. We tried very hard not to do that and get a real understanding what the health effects of meat are. We also did not have a particular bias, we have vegetarians, flexitarians and meat eaters in the team. And in general, since our first meat video many of us have reduced their meat consumption or at least try to. Others in the team have not changed at all and don't plan to. We don't have an overarching agenda here, one way or the other. There is a video about milk in the making right now and we also just started a video about veganism. Look forward to more diet related videos next year.

Kurzgesagt if there was still no cultivation, we would still be hunting for food. We only cultivated plants just because we can't originally eat them. Meanwhile, our ancestors lived on fruits and meat.

@Elise Erickson "People seem to think earing meat makes thrm strong or masculine or powerful" - you clearly have your own issues because what you're saying is absolute and utter bullshit. Seek help, log off.

We have lots of things to eat why we eat meat, we should not kill animals for our taste

I wish this talked about fasting.
If you eat a solid three meals a day eating red meats frequently can be harmful but if you eat a single meal while achieving your necessary calories a person can easily get away with having a high beef or pork diet

lol, with all the pollution including mercury and micro-plastics, fish is probably the LEAST healthy for you. For them to say its one of the healthiest and can be eaten regularly without concern is a joke.

So whats with the Eskimos you mentioned? Are they having these increased risks? Are they all dying young from strokes and diabetes and stuff? I know that probably reads as if I'm trying to defend meat but I'm just generally interested and this video wasn't long enough to explain very much.

Cholesterol is a little more complicated than is shown in this video there is multiple types of cholesterol and some aren't bad for you. Maybe worth it's own video?

I love meat, and have cut down drastically on processed/fast food meat, never going to stop eating bacon though (even if its just twice a year), its just too yummy. Grilled chicken once a week or once in two weeks, mutton rarely eaten, missing eating beef once in a way...thanks for a great video!!!

Humans evolved as omnivores, so meat is not bad for you. Of course, anything in excess is a bad thing. Also, you lost me at about 8:10 when you mentioned climate change. There is no empirical evidence that significant human-caused climate change exists. You have fallen for that hoax.

Meat is bad they basically admit it. Even saying that vegetarians live overall healthier lives. So you are better off eating vegan

Vegan isn't extreme. Not eating at all would be extreme. Vegan is superior diet. You need to ween yourself off of meat though. Some people are required to eat meat though due to their karma.

@Derick Chafton I know being vegan is healthy but eating healthy meat isn't a sin or something bad logically and most of the food I eat are vegetables and some meat

Well it is obvious that meat can be Unhealthy because of what they put in the animals for us to eat meat,that is the main problem that people don't know because farmers have not told them yet. Some people become Pescatarians and Vegetarians and also Vegans because of this or either animal rights.
