  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell
    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell  2 months ago +1179

    Here are our sources: https://sites.google.com/view/sourcesismeathealthy/ 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: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195666319305549?via%3Dihub
    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.

    Thanks for Arabic subtitles ❤️ You play a big role in spreading knowledge in the Middle East and fighting extremism ... science and freedom attracts the young generation in our region to a great extent in the face of those who want to return us to the past ... Thanks again

    So in summary, stay away from shady processed meats, treat red meat like a delicacy, and eat your vitemans
    Edit: Don’t forget to harass people who make mistakes online
