    So all these servings a day amounts to a hundred dollars. Only a communist thinks they can afford that!

    Deciding to continue meat consumption is hardly evidence of denial of mortality. It can also be an acknowledgement of obligate mortality plus a simple cost-benefit consideration, a line of reasoning popularized as "YOLO" in recent years.

    How do you explain KETO ?

  11. Gloria Kurkowski on August 1, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    See a doctor? Replaced by an NP or PA who cannot perform a procedure when needed. See a doctor, you have 4.3 seconds and no longer, next. But you’ll leave with plenty of prescriptions to treat your symptoms. Eat healthy, exercise, don’t watch the news and stay close to good friends and family. I now feel much healthier. My nursing career is now one to one homecare, we’re people are actually cared for.

  12. Daniel Banda on August 1, 2021 at 9:40 pm

  22. Tyson Baxter on August 1, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    What are your studies comparing to, Humans are not Herbivores, they are Omnivores.
    We can’t just eat grass and green stuff, meat has to be incorporated.

  23. TimothyBowman on August 1, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Plant based is better

    Damn I’m gonna have to switch off the whey protein i guess..

  26. Melany Yulan on August 1, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    meat is good, the meat that they sell to you in supermarkets that is not good. i spend my childhood and adolescence in Ecuador ( south america ) in a little town where you could find fresh quality meat, chicken meat and fish. ( bc everything is produced by farmers, in the same town and not in big industries!) When i came to EU and coocked meat for the first time here… i saw a pink slimy thing coming out of the meat, something that i had never seen before. same thing with the chicken… and i asked to myself What the hell am i eating?… “first world” food is not food is just a mass of toxins and trash. ( and guess what? deseases like cancer are very uncommon where i come from, people tends to get sick mainly because of the exaggerated asumtion of alcohol and fried food)

  27. Morg Ierwin on August 1, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    I like her answer to the question about fish: ‘Eating animals gives you cancer’. We are omnivores get over it. So much of this info is gold but the culty veganism is just ridiculous. Some fish is fine. Are we just going to ignore that massive data that purely plant diets don’t lead to robust health over long term? Please do not say it’s biased data, there is some of that but its not all biased. Old American diet is madness, but our brains literally evolved because of the bioavailability of flesh, to go to the other extreme is not going to turn out like you want it to. Moderation. Vegetables. Yes.

  28. Say What? on August 1, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Everyone wants a miracle diet because they too lazy to exercise 🤦‍♂️
    We all know what is healthy and unhealthy to eat, we just too stubborn to follow a strict bland diet

  29. Nta O. Henshaw on August 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    We African had been eating meating for million of years.. its not meat, its Wheat and Grains foods that is the root of all health problem..

  30. Passionate Herbs on August 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    There maybe some real truth to this about milk for some, but maybe not all… my mother is 90 and has never had cancer… She drinks milk every day, it is not organic… I tried… and still mows her own lawn. & she eats meat, eggs, cheese, but in moderation. She fell and broke her leg in recent years, but no other broken bones. Although, I think a vegan diet is the best I find it very difficult to stick to. I have been vegetarian, but never vegan… still hopeful.

  31. Sunli Ganghi on August 1, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    My name is Sunli gandhi, Dr. Harvey is the only herbal doctor who could ever get my HIV cured with his herbal products. I have tried almost everything but I couldn’t find any solution for the virus, despite all these happening to me, I always spend a lot of money to buy HIV drugs and other supplements to keep me healthy and taking several medications. Until one day I was just surfing through YouTube when I came across a great post from Anita, who said that she was diagnosed with HIV and was healed through the help of this great herbal supplements of Dr Harvey, Sometimes I really wonder why people call him the great Dr.Harvey, I never knew it was all because of the great and perfect work that he has been doing. So I quickly contacted him and told him everything happening to me, and he asked me a few questions and he said something I will never forget, that anyone who contacts him is always getting his/her cure within a few weeks after doing all he asks them to do. So I was amazed all the time I heard that from him, so I did everything he said only to see that at the very day which he said I will be cured and should go for a test to confirm my status, I went to Hospital for the final test and the doctor after running the test said I’m HIV Negative wow. I’m very amazed and Happy about this cure i have really gone through so much pain and tears for this Dr.Harvey cured me with the help of his natural herbs.If you Have anybody going through this same Situation or any kind of cancers or Diseases at all contact Dr Harvey today he cures them all save a life today. You can contact Dr.Harvey VIA EMAIL:[]

  39. mary vila on August 1, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    Thank you for this lecture. 2 years ago my mom was diagnose with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The family doctor gave her medication for the high blood pressure and suggested her to go on a low fat diet (no red meat, butter, processed meat or dairy products). She had her blood tested after 3 months and the cholesterol was way better, almost normal. After few months she went back to her old diet (she really likes cheese and dairy products) and the cholesterol went up again. I’m seeing almost everyone over the age of 50 taking medication for high blood pressure and/or cholesterol and everyone seems just fine with that; almost no one talks about changing the diet or adopting a healhtier lifestyle. I think this is crazy. Oh, and i’m not from the US, I’m from Italy.

  40. Emang Thuso on August 1, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Life-giving lecture!! Ty! Quick question: What was the name of the product you squeeze onto a spoon every day to get your healthy Omega 3’s from seaweed?

  43. Faith on August 1, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Pure plant based diet is the healthy n positive healing path to all illnesses indeed. Everyone shld at least try having plant based diet for a week n u will surely see the excellent results in yr whole body inside out/great for yr skin, hair as well. Eating meat is like eating dead tissue n animals carcasses. Animals hv feelings too n they too feel pain n cry when they know going to be slaughter… so sad indeed… God bless all big n small animals 🐾🐾🐾❤➕

    Just one point of contention. Neanderthals didn’t die out but were assimilated by the Humans. Roughly two percent of the genomes of Europeans and Asians are Neanderthal. Asians also carry additional Denisovan DNA, up to 6 percent in Melanesians.

  45. Lotta T on August 1, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Wow! VERY interesting and important. I’ve been vegan for some years, but unhealthy (eating alot of sugar, processed food, too much soy products) so I tried keto for a while to loose weight. My stomach got CRAZY. Not right away but gradually bad. And other health concerns got worse. So I realized now with this lecture the importance of eating a WHOLE FOOD healthy vegan diet and stay away from all the vegan junk foods and snacks. That’s all fine in the beginning in the transition, but not anymore! The only thing I hate to stop eating again is cheese. And there is two ways of doing it:

    1. A smart dietist said that eating 75% right and 25% "bad" is good enough. Maybe that should be 95/5%. This can work in a transition period.
    2. I used to think like this: I’m not giving up cheese forever. IF I really want it I can have some, but it should be of the best quality and a special occasion. That helped me to not eat cheese for three years and I can try it again. After a while it becomes natural to not eat it.
    3. Now when I went back to cheese again I got CRAZY with it. I’ve indulged in expensive cheese. And I became very constipated and bloated. I can see now how hard it is to eat a little. It’s like she said; a drug. Goodbye lovely parmesan, chèvre, feta, 30 month cultured Västerbotten…
