Scientists: We Were Wrong About Red Meat

Whoops.

New York Times:

“Public health officials for years have urged Americans to limit consumption of red meat and processed meats because of concerns that these foods are linked to heart disease, cancer and other ills.

But on Monday, in a remarkable turnabout, an international collaboration of researchers produced a series of analyses concluding that the advice, a bedrock of almost all dietary guidelines, is not backed by good scientific evidence. …

While the new findings are likely to please proponents of popular high-protein diets, they seem certain to add to public consternation over dietary advice that seems to change every few years. The conclusions represent another in a series of jarring dietary reversals involving salt, fats, carbohydrates and more. …”

Listen to P.D. Mangan.

He has been right about this for years.

I have personally had problems with my weight.

In my case, the original culprit was getting in the habit of drinking too much soda in my youth and later beer with friends on the weekends in adulthood. Combine that with fried foods, eating fast food and spending too much time online and I developed a weight problem.

If you want to lose weight, then download MyFitnessPal, track what you consume, do resistance training and cut carbs especially sugar and alcohol. You will be fine.

Richard Spencer notes on Twitter that the sugar industry was the culprit in promoting the low-fat diet which became the conventional wisdom:

NPR:

“In the 1960s, the sugar industry funded research that downplayed the risks of sugar and highlighted the hazards of fat, according to a newly published article in JAMA Internal Medicine.

The article draws on internal documents to show that an industry group called the Sugar Research Foundation wanted to “refute” concerns about sugar’s possible role in heart disease. The SRF then sponsored research by Harvard scientists that did just that. The result was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1967,with no disclosure of the sugar industry funding.

The sugar-funded project in question was a literature review, examining a variety of studies and experiments. It suggested there were major problems with all the studies that implicated sugar, and concluded that cutting fat out of American diets was the best way to address coronary heart disease.

The authors of the new article say that for the past five decades, the sugar industry has been attempting to influence the scientific debate over the relative risks of sugar and fat.

I’ve never come across a physical fitness influencer on YouTube with practical experience at helping people with weight loss recommending eating lots of sugar. It is pretty much the worst thing you can put in your body and the number one thing to cut out of your diet.

  1. The food industry is ruining western health with sugar, salt and high-carb junk. Avoid prepared and processed food like it is poison, because it is.

    Stroke isn’t pretty.

  2. This also breaking, just now.

    The government lies when paid to by capitalists who have no social constraints on their avarice because of social liberalism, and no economic constraints because of economic liberalism (muh Reagan conservatism), both of which are flip sides of the same Liberal coin.

    Tonight, the country is shocked by this news.

    Still no word on whether the Irish are actually White.

    Back to you, Hunter.

    Good job on Cantwells show the other night. Its the first episode ive made myself listen to in a while now.

    P.S. the terms Liberal and Conservative no longer have any meaning, as they are distinctions without a difference. Its time for new terminology to describe the two sides of the liberal coin.

  3. The internet is closing as is society. It’s almost impossible to keep up with “movement” stuff now, as everyone is scattered and vids get taken down the day they are posted. We have no centralized hub to find out what is happening. The internet is already basically TV and radio, where it is impossible to find anything of substance. No one can get a payment processor or even a social media account (without a cell phone doxx)

    We are fucked, and our nation will become Mexico, nothing will stop that. God has abandoned as no one can meet his unachievable standards. First comes invasion, then disease, starvation and war. It won’t take long and will sweep the land faster than we’ll be ready for.

  4. I’m very inclined to believe the “Big Sugar” conspiracy. My father was an insulin injecting diabetic and he used liquid Sucaryl (Abbott Laboratories’ brand of sodium cyclamate) as a sugar substitute. In fact the whole family did in our ice tea and coffee. To this day, I don’t think a better tasting (and safer) artificial sweetener has ever been concocted. Cyclamates were banned in the US sometime in the mid to late sixties as a cancer causing substance.

    Dad explained that Big Sugar was one of the most powerful lobbies in the country at the time and that it sponsored “studies” in which lab rats were fed bathtubful equivalants of cyclamates to induce cancer. Big Sugar was bigger than Big Pharma (Abbott Laboratories). Socialist Canada never outlawed cyclamates and Dad had some frequent border crossing northern friends who “smuggled” it in for him.

    I guess Canada’s population size didn’t constitute a large enough market for Big Sugar to justify the expense of corruption of science and lobbying effort.

  5. Sugar causes inflammation which leads to all kinds of problems. Your body needs fat to function correctly, just not massive amounts of it. Beer is liquid estrogen.

    • Textures vegetable protein (I.e., soy) is the sneaking into more and more food, especially those targeted at kids.

      Cancer cells feed on carbohydrates.

  6. Wasn’t the weak looking Jordan Peterson promoting eating only meat? Didn’t he just have a mental break down and check himself into drug rehab? His on stage verbal agility wasn’t from eating meat, it was from consuming cocaine.

    Something I immediately noticed in the above 10 yrs before and after picture, the guy has white skin before and has red skin after. That isn’t sunburn. The blood of red meat eating has turned his skin red. I can tell big red meat eaters from a distance. They have a red blush to their skin.

  7. Recall the Iraq war leader mister, “They are in the north the South the west and the East..those unknown knowns”

    When breifly out of government work he went to work as a lobbiest for chemical poison company, the company tried several times to get its aspertame unbanned to no avail, untill Don rumsfeld fixed it for them with his inside connections.

    Whats this got to do with beef? Nothing, but its part of the massive manipulation of markets and food additives that have wrecked a once great white nation.

    Im sure you’ll find hoi ioudaioi lurking near…

    En arche en ho logos…!

  8. There is skullduggery afoot in the nutritional information arena, obvs! One claim always contradicted by opposite regularly.

    When you cant rely on accurate information, you fall prey to hucksters, malaise, and a general lack of caring about the truth in any matter.

    Just a daily ” hope a bus doesn’t hit me today” mentality.

  9. Starch, sugar and carbs are what are bad for people. Not fat.These three things in excess, make you fat.

    Arteries have a layer of muscle in them. Injury to this tissue causes scabs, or what is called plaque, to form in them, blocking them.
    Apple cider vinegar takes care of this, blood pressure, and blood sugar.

    Keep your BP and blood sugar under control, and maintain good circulation, and you whip 90% of your other potential health problems.

  10. Of course all the environmental experts couldn’t possibly be wrong about Climate Change.

    I’m of the opinion that most, if not all, the crap proposed or imposed on us by the “experts” is one big scam after another.

  11. > Big Sugar paid scientists to generate the “low fat is healthy” meme.

    Free-market Capitalism does not work. Profit über alles is no way to run a country. In a healthy society, big corporations would have a mandate – by their charter and/or government oversight or ownership – to benefit society first and only secondarily to produce a (modest) profit for their shareholders. And domestic corporations would be protected from foreign competition through tariffs or outright regulation.

    Why should we allow ravenous corporations to poison our food, feed us pills, and work us to death?
    Why should we allow foreign corporations to do the same thing overseas and then import their ill-gotten products to our shores?

    Alas, our government is so corrupt and our society is so degraded that we won’t be able to fix anything any time soon.

  12. “I’m of the opinion that most, if not all, the crap proposed or imposed on us by the “experts” is one big scam after another.”

    That is golden.

    Experts tell us race does not exist.
