UN report: eat less meat to combat climate crisis
"Tackling food waste and reducing meat consumption can contribute signicantly to staving off the worst effects of climate change, the United Nations' climate panel said in a report published Thursday (8 August)."Thinking about the Useless Nations pushing their meat free agenda on lions tigers and bears- That wouldn't happen because said animal would simply rip to shred the moronic UN representative and then have them for lunch. Supper. And, then a late night snack. Delicious.
Cause the lion has not opted to be a vegetarian- and never will. Only humans are so easily manipulated, heart and mind, to slurp up the slop the UN pushes as science.
UN: "Basically, replacing meat with plant-based products decreases someone's carbon footprint."Since carbon is life, I always take the idea of "reducing your carbon footprint" to really mean reducing your life
Meat is Brain Food
Which means your increased stupidity, dullness and docility, due to inadequate meat consumption, is a boon to those that shouldn't lead. Maddening state of affairs my human family is in...
" However, veganism’s total exclusion of animal nutrients poses some serious problems for the human body. Meat, fish and eggs are our only concentrated dietary sources of vitamin D, vitamin B12, omega-3 fats (which play a huge role in brain health), heme-iron (which increases the absorption of iron from vegetables) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which appears to fight cancer and heart disease.
Clinical research finds that people on vegan diets commonly suffer from a variety of nutritional deficiencies. One study, for instance, showed that more than half of vegans tested were deficient in vitamin B12, putting them at risk of mental health problems such as fatigue, poor concentration, decreased brain volume with aging and irreversible nerve damage.
Certain populations that are particularly susceptible to inadequate nutrition should think twice about veganism, including adolescents, the elderly, the poor, pregnant women, and those with psychiatric or chronic medical illnesses. A vegan diet during pregnancy also puts the fetal brain in danger of stunted development and reduced cognitive capacities later in life. While it is common among vegans to take synthetic supplements to make up for the lack of animal nutrients in their diets, studies suggest that supplements are ineffective substitutes for real food and carry significant health risks of their own. Supplements are also expensive, and people tend to take them irregularly, so while a strict vegan diet with supplements may be possible with proper medical supervision, for most people it’s neither practical nor desirable.
A healthier choice is to modify the vegan diet with a minimal amount of animal nutrients from responsibly raised, high-quality sources, perhaps local seafood or grass-fed lamb.
Those with ethical objections to killing animals can meet all their animal-nutrient needs with dairy products from grass-fed cows, organic eggs from cage-free chickens and occasional servings of mussels or oysters."
"Vitamin B12 is the largest and most complex of all vitamins, found only in animal-based foods. Plants do not make, use, or contain this vitamin. Even so, many people make the conscious decision to avoid all foods containing natural B12. It is vital that they supplement their diets, and monitor their B12 status, because deficiency can have devastating consequences.
A water-soluble vitamin, B12 is crucial to the brain and nervous system, red blood cell formation and DNA.This vitamin is made exclusively in the guts of animals by bacteria. It then migrates from the gut to muscle. The higher predatory animals are the best sources, along with seafood and fish.
Absorption — bioavailability — of B12 can vary, depending on the source. About 50% of B12 from meat and fish is absorbed into the bloodstream. However, only around 9% of B12 in eggs is bioavailable. Milk contains surprisingly little B12.Early, mild symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include:
- Loss of appetite
- Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
- Poor memory.Vitamin B12 is crucial to brain function, so, unsurprisingly, memory problems and slow mental processes are the most commonly reported cognitive problems associated with deficiency of this vitamin.
The four stages of vitamin B12 deficiencyDeficiency occurs in four stages. In stages 1 and 2, stores become depleted. In stage 3, blood levels of an amino acid called homocysteine start to rise.It is only at stage four that clinical signs start to manifest.The recommended daily amount of B12 is 2.4mcg in the US and 1.5mcg in the UK.Shortage of this vitamin can take several years to become apparent. That is because the adult body stores around 2–5mg of B12, half of which is in the liver. That is enough B12 to last 3–5 years, although deficiency can arise within just a year if stores are low to start with.Severe deficiency causes irreversible damage to the brain and nervous system and can lead to dementia. Low levels of B12 are also associated with the development of Parkinson’s disease.
Vitamin B12 deficiency and babiesThe matter of deficiency is even more urgent in babies and infants. During pregnancy, the foetus stores vitamin B12 in the liver, and this supply can last for several months after birth, depending on how much the mother supplies. If she has a low intake, and/or weans her baby on a B12-deficient diet, that child will become vulnerable to the effects of B12 deficiency very quickly.Most of the data we have regarding vitamin B12 deficiency in infants comes from case studies of breastfeeding mothers on vegan or vegetarian diets. That is because lack of B12 in the diet is the most common cause of deficiency, and vegan and vegetarian mothers are more likely to have a vitamin B12 deficient infant.
Typical signs of deficiency in infants include:
It is important that treatment is given in time, because of the long term cognitive effects of B12 deficiency. Normally, the child will be given very high doses of B12, injected directly into muscle for 4 days, sometimes with oral doses as back-up. Fortunately, if treatment is given early enough recovery is very rapid, with major improvements seen within days of treatment, and reversal of symptoms.
- Failure of brain development and cognitive skills
- Failure of overall growth and development
However, it is well documented that without treatment, there is risk of severe and permanent developmental abnormalities.
Vitamin B12 deficiency was once thought to be rare in vegetarians, but is now known to be common among people on all the different vegetarian variations. Researchers have observed stage 3 vitamin B12 deficiency in over 60% of vegetarians.
Follow the elite edicts, destroy your health and that of your offspring. The global leadership will thank you for making their jobs easier. Their days bright and happy- And they will continue to eat high quality meat while you forgo it to 'save the planet'
“Early diagnosis of vitamin B-12 deficiency is crucial, owing to the latent nature of this disorder and the resulting possible irreversible neurologic damage”
With the rising popularity of both vegetarian and vegan diets, it may be prudent (or indeed, essential) for physicians to offer monitoring and supplementation to pregnant women who choose to avoid foods that contain vitamin B12. A woman can choose, but her baby cannot.
Mark Zuckerberg raises his own animals and then consumes the high quality flesh- because it's healthier for him.
"I’m eating a lot healthier foods. And I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals. It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”Link
He told Fortune in an interview, "The only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself."A good size pig can feed Mr Zuckerberg for a very long time. Sadly, that type of healthy eating is not for the dregs (The worst and lowest part of something- The dregs of a society)
Since the new regimen started, he has killed several types of animals, including a pig and a goat.
Still awaiting the mass awakening?????
Shit burgers/steaks and Soylent green- The UN will suggest that's good eating too.
