  • "paleo-ish diet"?. In other words, a conventional diet. What I'm alluding to is the fact that a comparatively large percentage of celebrities are vegans, when compared to 3-5% in normal population. It's because vegan diet keeps them healthier.
    Johnny Depp and Carrie Underwood just added themselves to the long list of vegans.

  • This is yet another thing that solidifies my decision to go completely vegan. I have struggled for years with anxiety and anger. Ever since I gave up animal products I have a feeling of calm and well-being that I have NEVER experienced before. It's unbelievable.

  • Lumping all trans-fatty acids into one demonized group is a mistake. At least one trans fat, conjugated linoleic acid specifically, which is found in grass-fed animal products, is beneficial and anti-carcinogenic.

  • What is funny is that many people that prone to become addicted to dairy, animal fat, refined sugar, chemicals of processed foods do not realize until they have metabolic syndrome. If an injury compounds their health then they have to make a decision. All of the exercise in the world cannot get rid of the transfers that are in your liver and your body!

  • The food industry is the source of all food evils. Back in great grandma's day cancer and heart disease rates were very low, they used animal fat (lard) to fry. Cane sugar was the prefered sweetener, now it's the cheaper high fructose corn syrup. The food industry found they could make 25% more money if they used trans fats in their products. The food industry doesn't care about your health, their focus is how many billions they can make off you. The media should expose these big food companies and their motives, embarassing them and their profit motives, causing consumers to avoid their products. Thus causing healthy changes.

  • To correct the good doctor they can't put trans fat free on a product if it has less than .5 grams of trans fat per serving however they can put 0%. If a product says trans fat free then there is none, not even less than .5%.

  • interesting to know now:
    if transfat is naturally found in animals…doesnt that mean humans got transfat too? even if its just very little
    and now the question if its necesarry to have in ur body any percentage of transfat whatsoever…i mean like…does the body need to have any of it? (not from diet but i mean selfproduced like animals apparently do..otherwise they prolly wouldnt have them right?)

  • 1. The verdict is still out on whether animal sources of trans fat are dangerous. This is true regardless of what your source claims.

    2. The more insidious issue is that artifical trans fats entered the diet as a direct result of dietary guidelines opposing saturated fat. So on the whole, the low fat craze was actually more harmful than helpful. For similar reasoning, scientists might call vegetarian diets an extreme reaction to trans fat consumption.

  • Go fuck yourself, You dishonest shill.

    First of all, Only certain parts of cows contain trans fats first of all. Second, Research hasn't shown that the naturally occurring trans-fats in beef has any impact on health. Chicken and milk doesn't contain any from what i've found looking at various nutrition facts sheets. Fish doesn't contain any either. Most trans-fat occurs from industrial oil used during cooking or processing of packaged foods.

    Wake the fuck up, And how about you put a disclaimer and let your viewers know how you're paid to find research that supports vegan rhetoric, Dick head.

  • Natural Trans Fat Red
    meat provides a small amount of naturally occurring trans fats in the
    form of trans-rumenic acid and trans-vaccenic acid. This type of trans
    fat is actually beneficial and not the same as the artificial trans fats
    resulting from hydrogenation and used in the food manufacturing
    industry. Both of these natural trans fats are categorized as omega-7
    fats and can help promote healthy cholesterol levels by lowering LDL, or
    bad cholesterol. In addition, trans-rumenic acid is a form of
    conjugated linoleic acid, also known as CLA, which is associated with
    weight control and also found in cows milk.

  • This is intentionally misleading. Trans fats are found in beef, lamb and deer because the bacteria in their stomach make very small amounts. However, your bottle of organic Olive or Canola Oil probably contains more trans fat than an entire cow.

  • There is a huge chemical difference between natural and industrial trans fats.

    Naturally occurring trans fats are formed when rumen bacteria in the stomachs of ruminant animals (cows, sheep, etc.) digest the grass the animal has eaten and form trans-rumenic and trans-vaccenic acid via biohydrogenation of polyunsaturated fats in the grass. Conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, is a trans-rumenic acid that is found abundantly in grass-fed meat and dairy products, and to a lesser degree in grain-fed products. It is also produced in our bodies from the conversion of trans-vaccenic acid (VA) from those same animal products.

    Industrial trans fats have slightly different chemical structures than those trans fats found in beef and butter (specifically, the location of the double bond). CLA also has contains both cis- and trans- bonds, whereas most industrial trans fats have only transbonds. But these minor differences in structure lead to majorly different effects in the body, as has been shown in many clinical and epidemiological studies. While industrial trans fats are shown to increase the risk of heart disease, cancer, and obesity, CLA and other trans fats found naturally in animal products are actually thought to decrease the risk of those diseases.

    Yet another instance of scaremongering by Greger. Science doesn't care what you think.

  • As an atheist, I find debating religion less daunting than debating nutrition. It is as if they are somehow more insecure with the nutritional dogma than the religious dogma and thus more defensive. Science can't prove that there is no god, but it can prove that people are fat and dying.

  • Of all the different diets and belief systems out there (vegan, keto, vegetarian, paleo), I have found that they all agree on one thing, trans fats are bad and should never be comsumed.

  • Thomas delauer just published a video tacitly implying that naturally occurring trans fats found in animal products are either neutral or beneficial to health and might reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease… Facepalm.

  • I am confused, what he means by trans-fats , is he talking about oxidised cholesterol and it similarity with hydrolysed vegetable oil , the latter of which send isn't found in meat or any plant for that matter

  • Well this is vegetarian bullshit 😂 theres a reason you can find cultures throughout history that survived off eating nothing but meat, and not 1 eating nothing but plants. There are people today who eat nothing but meat, have been for 20+ years and they are perfectly healthy. Vegans need supplements. Stop lying to people.

  • Our body and mind will not renew or evolve well without the inflammation/repair cycle.
    I use this channel for the best way to fight inflammation using plants. Thank you for that.
    But I will not give up meat and dairy in moderation.
    Our body and mind have to struggle to achieve greatness, without that, you might live a healthy life but in the long run you will always be the same until your eventual extinction.
