    Over the last few years eating meat has increasingly been associated with health risks, like heart disease, cancer and an early death. How unhealthy is meat really?

    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.

    Here's my theory:
    Meat gives you the things your body needs because it is a body.

    Well, but here in Spain our diet is very reliable on meat and we have one of the highest life expectancy rates, and I can assure you it is not due to a "good health care". It is true we include a lot of fish, but we also eat tons of cow and big; we actually eat all of it. On the other hand, it is true we don't have that much processed food.

    Why can't one balance between meat and vegetables and fruits , also more regulation of meat industry, bit we always want a be all end all solution and we don't want to spend money, also many rich people can afford good food but the poor are not in our considerations of people dying of the food
