... I have been a dirty hobo and lived off grid for a few years as well. Eventually you get hungry, have health concerns or want some comforts. It is hard to undergo hardship like that as you age. ...
Yet magically, minstrels of nonsene like him all the time make up anecdotal nonsense about the health benefits of eating meat -- since they know they cannot give sources, as they don't exist. But if you look at their other posts they are admitting they are overweight and unhealthy! What we have is people who are mostly overweight and unhealthy, making up anecdotes that eating meat is healthy! They even cite fat gurus who had leukemia, which is known to be strongly correlated to meat consumption, and now after leukemia he is likely too sick to even be overweight. Yet of course they try to present it as if he just "lost weight" on his own, instead of what is well known, that people who are too sick, like ex-cancer victims, often are too unhealthy to even be overweight. Amazing what addiction does to people.
Since we are at anecdotes again, my grandmother actually whines all the time she cannot drink water! She insists she has to cut it with some flavoring or some carbonated beverage, or she cannot swallow. My cousin as a youth, used to throw fits when he came to our house and we only had tap water to drink and no juice or soda. Is there a real widespread problem of people not being able to drink water? Of course not, but when you listen to many, whiny addicted first world privileged people, drinking plain water is a huge chore.
Anyway for serious people, this is the effect of a higher than normal meat diet on the type of "Nordic ancestors", which Nemo claims in his fantasies are adapted to eating meat:
Pagona Lagiou, et. al. wrote:BMJ: Low carbohydrate-high protein diet and incidence of cardiovascular diseases in Swedish women: prospective cohort study
Results: A one tenth decrease in carbohydrate intake or increase in protein intake or a 2 unit increase in the low carbohydrate-high protein score were all statistically significantly associated with increasing incidence of cardiovascular disease overall (n=1270)—incidence rate ratio estimates 1.04 (95% confidence interval 1.00 to 1.08), 1.04 (1.02 to 1.06), and 1.05 (1.02 to 1.08). No heterogeneity existed in the association of any of these scores with the five studied cardiovascular outcomes: ischaemic heart disease (n=703), ischaemic stroke (n=294), haemorrhagic stroke (n=70), subarachnoid haemorrhage (n=121), and peripheral arterial disease (n=82).
Conclusions: Low carbohydrate-high protein diets, used on a regular basis and without consideration of the nature of carbohydrates or the source of proteins, are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Apparently they are not adapted to avoiding getting sick and dying earlier from the nonsense diet he touts. But don't worry they have anecdotes and excuses that "everyone is different" and appeals to ancestral genetics that don't hold up.
That is funny that a doctor is bragging about two of the worst things you can do for your personal health: drinking alcohol and eating meat. Yet you wasted my time on numerous occasions supporting the allopathic medical model, where instead of actually advising people to not eat meat or not drink alcohol(or better yet, let them pay the real cost to society, so that almost no one can afford to make them habits) you give them pills. And when the pills do not work enough, you can cut up the meat addict like a pig and replace the arteries in his heart with veins in his knees! Or you can watch the alcoholic get liver disease, dementia(which meat addicts also get often), etc. No wonder why most doctors used to be believe tobacco propaganda and tout its health benefits a few decades ago. Most of them simply don't care about much outside of personal comfort.
Eating meat is not a personal choice under your disgusting personal choice doctrine. No nurse wants to wash the nasty dirty feet, of fat old people who disable themselves with arthritis, diabetes and high blood pressure because they just thought they had to eat meat. No one wants to work in a slaughterhouse if they have a better option or proper immigration status. As a doctor, that you and your ilk don't know or countenance the negative effects of meat consumption on personal and societal health is beyond pathetic. Not to mention the environmental impacts, the cruelty and continuing massacre of animals, etc.
If you continue to make up nonsense health arguments, nonsense "first world privilege" arguments, ethical arguments, make no mistake you will countered. You lot have nothing, but air in this regard and a cowardice to admit the real reasons you consume meat: habit, convenience, taste addiction.
