Is Meat Actually Good for You?

2738 ratings | 87699 views
Is meat really good for you? Steak, bacon, fried chicken... Some meat products are just too mouth-watering delicious for their own good, but are they healthy? We're going to figure this out together. Do you know that the meat industry often gives livestock hormones to make them grow faster? All these additional chemicals contribute to a variety of health problems, including cancer and early puberty in girls. At the same time, meat has its fair share of health benefits too. It contains complex protein and tons of amino acids, some of which our body can't produce on its own whatsoever. Meat is also a great source of B vitamins. TIMESTAMPS: How hormones in meat affect humans 2:08 Meat and infertility 2:52 Meat and Type 2 diabetes 3:36 Why meat is good for our health 4:00 Meat and losing weight 5:34 How to cook meat correctly 6:28 How much meat you should eat 7:26 How to remove meat from your diet 7:53 #meatbenefits #eatingmeat #vegetarianism Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Researchers from the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health found that meat negatively affects fertility in both men and women. - More research by the Harvard School of Public Health found a connection between red meat and Type 2 diabetes. According to the experts behind the study, 3.5 extra servings of red meat per week increase your chance of developing diabetes by 50%. - Experts link amino acids found in meat with improved functioning of the immune system. The thing is, your body needs amino acids to successfully create anti-bodies that protect your system from the harmful stuff that makes you sick, like viruses and bacteria. - Numerous studies, including ones conducted by the University of Washington and the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, confirmed that high-protein diets with meat contribute to reducing your appetite and increasing your metabolism. - Don't forget that when you cook meat at a high temperature, it can form all types of unsafe compounds like heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. - No matter how much you love meat, you still shouldn’t go overboard with it. The World Cancer Research Fund suggests eating less than 500 grams of meat a week, while the Global Burden of Disease project is sure that it's healthier to draw the line at 100 grams. - If you were a big meat lover before, don't give it up cold turkey. Instead, take small steps towards your goal to make the transition easier for your system. Start by adding more vegetables to your meals and slowly reducing the amount of meat you eat with them. - To prevent any vitamin or nutrition deficiencies, fill your new menu with healthy foods. It can be fruits, berries, vegetables, eggs, nuts, seeds, grains, dark chocolate, or anything else you like. Creating a healthy menu for yourself is only hard at the beginning.

@BRIGHT SIDE, I have a question about the studies that you cited in this video. Harvard said that a person should not eat more than 1.5 servings of *processed* meats per week, or it may reduce infertility. If you look at it that way then, couldn't you argue that processed foods like *cereal* and *fruit roll-ups* are bad for you. I feel like not using *USDA organic meats* at least, does not really aide you so I feel like that doesn't really get to the core of the question. Similarly, I don't think the World Cancer Research Fund considered meat quality standards in countries that have a high obesity rate like the States. I hope that someone will conduct a study using at least USDA organic meat and showing it's different effects on different people. Also, no matter what foods you eat, you have to eat them in moderation irrespective what diet you are doing, right? #PROCESSEDMEATISFAKEMEAT #ORGANICMEATISREALMEAT

Yeah. I used to eat meat like a carnivorous animal but now I'm vegan and very much healthier and happier. I do eat tuna fish once a week, but not too much though.

"Consult(ing) your doctor", about nutrition is a waste of time since the average physician is given a mere four (4) hours of nutritional education in medical school. It's probably better to seek the help of a nutritionist or do the research yourself. I gave up animal products over two years ago and my health has improved immensely.

Industrialized farming — meat, veggies and other — only accounts for 9% of the greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. And right now, we ship chickens to China to be processed, and then they sell them back to us. Wouldn’t it be simpler to just support family farms locally, so the meat doesn’t travel more than 100 miles from where it was produced and butchered?

At one time I used to be a big meat eater. But about more than 10 years ago. I decided to give up eating all pork related products. I haven't touch any pork products since. And I don't miss eating it not even for a single second. Now when I smell pork products being cooked in my house. Since my mother and her husband still loves to cook and eat it. Most especially really gross and disgusting pork bacon. I just tend to feel really sick and want to throw up. And most red meats I can definitely do with out them. Unless my mother is making either hamburgers, chili, meatballs, tacos, meatloaf, or beef stew. That is the only time I will ever eat red meat. On most days the only meats I will rather eat is either chicken, turkey, shrimp, and fish.

Most scientists believe that consuming meat was what allowed our ancestors to develop larger brains, become smarter and eventually evolve into modern human beings. Meat is also essential for maximizing physical potential. I was riding my bike last week and feeling unusually tired and lethargic which was baffling until I realized I hadn’t been consuming any meat the past couple of days. A nice juicy hamburger fixed me right up.

To all the meat eaters in the comments. We are not omnivores. if you were really an omnivore then you wouldn’t be disgusted at rotten corpses, while a carnivore on the other side would find it a buffet. I know what you’re going to say but we barely eat animals while still alive. Secondly we lack the protein sensation in our taste buds which all Omnivores would find it essential to have. Thirdly we have a ph of 5 while carnivores/omnivores have a ph of 1.5 to 3.5. Finally our canines are not suited for meat, they are too small and thin to tear through meat and are for plant matter only. For a bonus point I would just like to add that if you have ever seen a nature documentary you will find the idea of a deer being teared apart uncomfortable so if we were made to eat meat it would not be natures good idea to give us this insinct. Also no matter what brand or what quality, all animals are fed antibiotics. Even grass-fed products, you should focus on the bad side of meat that @bright side. said. Also for where they said they have amino acids that we do not make meaning we need them. Anyone who would believe that clearly does not understand science, plant proteins mix with other plant proteins as well as the ones we make to make the perfect amino acids for us. Plus for the vitamins part, vitamins from meat are rather sluggish, plant vitamins are better at being absorbed by the body. I think that debunks most of the arguments.

I try my best to not eat any meat. Currently I only eat sandwich/deli meats, but I only buy it on the same day it expires and freeze it. In Finland they mark down food to -30% if it expires tomorrow or -50% if it expires today. I only ever buy other types of meats if I’m cooking for other people. The only thing worse than eating animals is killing them just to throw them in the garbage.

Don't overeat meat. Eat a good amount to help body weekly. Best to have more vegetation, nuts, beans, and cheese while enjoying some good meat like chicken meat, which helps.

I wouldn't say I'm for or against. What you eat is what you eat and I wouldn't impose my choices on anybody. I'll have a discussion easy peasy and talk about these things. Though I do not eat meat. To be honest... I never really liked bacon at all, sure I had it and I had grabby hands though Bacon was too salty and gross for me as it lacked flavor. When turning to vegetarian Bacon was one of the first things I cut. Chicken, Fish, Pig followed closely as well. My last meaty thing I enjoyed were meat balls... and then I realized I needed to cut because I felt it was just better for me.
