English subtitle

Hey! Let's watch this documentary, "What the Health" with me!
It's available on Netflix.
Directors Kip Andersen, Keegan Kuhn- Kip and Keegan produced an earlier film “Cowspiracy”.
Both Kip and Keegan are Vegan.
No, Kip, not really.
The World Health Organization (WHO) did not say that eating meat was as deadly as smoking.
They concluded that processed meats cause cancer, and that there was inconclusive evidence of an association with stomach cancer.
But they did NOT recommend people stop eating meat.
They explain, “Eating meat has known health benefits.
Many national health recommendations advise people to limit intake of processed meat and red meat, which are linked to increased risks of death from heart disease, diabetes, and other illnesses.
He said high carb diet and sugar are not causing diabetes (Somehow sugar is no longer a contributor to getting T2D or to gaining weight).
I'm trying to process what he just said.
So wait... what is diabetes?
Diabetes is a disease of high sugar.
Insulin is a hormone.
You keep stimulating hormone over and over by eating more carbs.
The purpose of insulin is to lower sugar.
The documentary also says carbs can’t make you fat; only fat can.
Basically, we can eat all the carbs we want and not get fat and gain weight?
It's not true!
"Fish is toxic."
If you thought only meat was bad for your health, What the Health wants you to stay far, far away from fish too.
According to the film, it's full of mercury, antibiotics, and other chemicals.
While mercury exposure is definitely a risk in some fish for some people, not all fish is created equal.
It's true that some fishes are exposed to high mercury, but there are other fishes that have low mercury as well.
The decision to cut fish out of the diet over mercury concerns shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Eating fish comes with many health benefits, such as delivering essential nutrients like omega-3 fats.
They tell us egg yolks are pure fat and cholesterol (not true; they contain half the egg’s protein along with vitamins, essential fatty acids, and other nutrients).
One “expert” tells us egg yolk coats our red blood cells (!?), makes our blood thicker, and alters hormone levels.
There is absolutely inadequate data to suggest, by any means, that eating one egg per day is the equivalent of smoking 5 cigarettes daily.
Let’s review the references listed for this claim on the What the Health website.
The first is again a video which won’t be evaluated since it doesn’t meet any grades of evidence.
The second is an observational study.
What’s the strength of an observational study? Not much; it means they watched people, asked them questions and then drew between the lines.
The subjects weren’t asked for any other lifestyle factors except for egg yolk consumption and smoking.
Do we know if the people exercised less?
Do we know if the people who ate the most amount of eggs also used high saturated fats in cooking?
Or used added sugars sugars regularly?
Or ate out more regularly?
Those lifestyle questions were not assessed.
This is not real data.
Also, we have no control group without any vascular damage to compare their egg yolk consumption.
(on What The Health website)
And the last reference? It does not even address egg intake.
Not even once. Hit control F and search “egg” or “eggs.” Nothing. Zip.
There is absolutely inadequate data to suggest, by any means, that eating one egg per day is the equivalent of smoking 5 cigarettes daily.
I get the agenda. This is another Vegan Propaganda movie.
It cherry-picks scientific studies, exaggerates, makes claims that are untrue, and fails to put the evidence into perspective.
The vast majority of Americans don’t eat nearly enough fruits and vegetables, and too much of just about everything else.
Don’t believe everything you read, no matter the source! Always be skeptical. Question everything.
Do your own research, identify possible biases, and then decide for yourself if it's something you want to accept.
