Part 11 - Lierre Keith on the Moral, Nutritional, and Environmental Superiority of Eating Meat Peak Human - Unbiased Nutrition Info for Optimum Health, Fitness & Living

    • Nutrition

One of my favorite humans I have never met in person, Lierre Keith, shares a ton of information with us today. We talked for almost 2 hours and could have gone longer. You may recognize her from the Netflix film The Magic Pill - she was a hardcore vegan for 20 years and lived the lifestyle with passion. I won’t give away everything, but she wholeheartedly enjoys animal products now and wrote a book that thoroughly refutes the three major tenets vegans and vegetarians stand on. They claim a plant based diet is better morally, better for the environment, and superior nutritionally. As I know, and you at home probably are aware of by now, the opposite is true on all accounts.
 

We also bring up the Sapien Movement near the end as a way to join together and fight the vegan propaganda, spread the truth, and work to improve the way we do agriculture and human nutrition. The site is live at SapienMovement.com and you can also find the group on Facebook and the twitter and instagram accounts, all under that name. The goal is to “End industrial agriculture and eat ancestrally” - other than that, It’s not defined yet. Join us and help us figure out what we can do to make a difference.
 

As we speak, I’m in San Diego filming with some awesome researchers and doctors. We still really need your help if you haven’t pre-ordered or contributed to the film - it’s called Food Lies and it’s on http://indiegogo.com/projects/food-lies-post Thanks so much to everyone who has supported us so far. Let’s hear from Lierre!

Where we went wrong with salt https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/08/health/salt-health-effects.html
Plants are beginning to become dependant on humans to plant them because they are too big, humans have to clear land
Monocropping only takes from land, plants don’t give back and chemicals/fossil fuel is required in large amounts
Most vegans don’t understand the negative traits of monocropping
The water table has dropped far due to monocropping, oil drilling is used to get to the water
Ruminants and grass coevolved
Cows should not be fed corn
Cows stimulate the growth of grass
Bison make mini wetlands with their horns by stabbing land above water
E. coli is a result of factory farming and over usage of antibiotics
Cowspiracy is not based on real evidence and some of the individuals involved admitted they were wrong
It is hard to present facts to groups of individuals who are always convinced that their ideology is correct despite what any evidence points to
Grow your own food to reduce carbon footprint
Lierre talks about her gardening experience/realization about the cycle of life
Many vitamins are only available in animal fat
Some individuals need to eat meat because they can’t make the enzyme that converts the vitamin a found in carrots
There is not any plant source for vitamin B12, this has caused physical harm to some vegans such as damaged vision or hearing

Big health organizations have admitted that they have made mistakes when telling us what to eat
The govt. is subsidizing the worst
