Just watched this video that Jimmy More tweeted
What do you guys think?
Did Weston A Price really die of heart disease at age 58?
What a retarded video. I'm sure it's just as easy (if not easier!) to find a bunch of miserable looking veg*ns and pit them against folks like Sisson, Wolf, and the host of other new young paleo authors.
I'll wager that there are people who look like shit on every diet.
Even if Vegan was healthier, propaganda like that does not put me in favor of the approach. Stuff like that should make me think the worst of Vegans, but I have already seen some videos by Durian and I don't think you can get worse than that.
You can't trust anything from a vegan source whether it be The China Study book or a YouTube video. They have an agenda and that is to stop people from eating animals. Jimmy Moore's recent weight-loss scares them, which is why they're attacking him now.
Also, as Robin and Stephen pointed out, Weston Price died at the age of 78. Wolfgang Lutz died at 97 and Richard Berstein is alive and kicking as a type one diabetic at nearly 80, which is really something for a type I diabetic.
What we don't hear about though, are the causes of deaths of prominent vegans such as Andreas Moritz, who died "mysteriously" at the age of 58. What happend to him? No one will say. It's swept under the rug because it jeopardizes their cause. Animals are more important than humans. They'll sacrifice their lives AND YOURS for it.
1:52 He bashes the author of Wheat Belly. I don't care if you're vegan, vegetarian, south beach or atkins wheat is bad for you. This guy has good points in that low carb isn't necessarily going to facilitate perfect health for everyone but clearly doesn't have a grasp on what a proper diet is regardless. Also Weston Price died at 78..
Also, I watched that video twice; The tune is catchy.
Dr Price was all about getting the maximum amount of nutrients from your diet... That's a good thing, especially for physical development of a child. His diet didn't exactly restrict foods with lots of sugar, grains, alcohol, vegetable oils and other causes of inflammation. He wasn't exactly sporting a six pack from the pictures I've seen...
So even though I believe in a lot of the things he had to say, I wouldn't be at all surprized if he died of a heart attack.
I also wouldn't give 2 cents for vegan nutritional advice nor do I give any credit to their propaganda.
OK I am confused. The healthiest people I have seen are Sardinians and South France people. I have lived in both areas. In those areas they eat a lot of veggie, a lot of fruit (Sardianians don't in the Winter months though) and very little meat BUT they eat red meat, pork etc. They don't eat meat regularly but when they do it's quite the spectacle. They also don't limit food. They have desert, wine etc. BUT everything is made from scratch including breads, sweets etc.
In both places I have never thought of diet or restricting my food. In Sardania I lost 17 pounds in 2 mths without even thinking about it. I walked a lot, ate tons of fruit, etc. SO what gives??? It can't be the carbs or the meat or the bread........ what it is that's making us fat in North America?
Basically, if you look at most vegan (and even Paleo and Weston Price people) from the video - they are ALL not healthy looking. Gray hair (indicating nutritional deficiencies), inflammation, malnourishment. You want to see healthy looking people?
