slavery

No. Slavery is illegal.

beheadings

A lot of modern Western countries have capital punishment.

extremely bad sexism

True, but we're improving on that.

A lot of it is deserved

How is a coup attempt deserved? Thousands of people would die in the process. You want people to die because there's sexism amongst the populace? What? People in Western countries do fucked up shit as well. Meat consumption is very rampant in the West, despite its unethical and cruel nature. Should I cheer for the deaths of Westerners because they ate meat?

I really don't like burgers. I'm talking about chicken, shrimp, sausage, etc.

I appreciate the advice, but really just want to try meat substitutes out of curiosity.

Sugar blames fat for causing heart disease. 1967 by ockidj in fakehistoryporn

A low carb diet raises mortality.

"Our meta-analysis supported long-term harm and no cardiovascular protection with low-carbohydrate diets."

Saturated fats raise cholesterol levels.

"Conclusions: In typical British diets replacing 60% of saturated fats by other fats and avoiding 60% of dietary cholesterol would reduce blood total cholesterol by about 0.8 mmol/l (that is, by 10-15%), with four fifths of this reduction being in low density lipoprotein cholesterol."

I'm so sorry that you have to go through this. No person ever should.

TIL that 50 years ago, the sugar industry quietly paid off some scientists to point blame at fat for heart diseases by Orangutan in conspiracy

[–]lepandas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Saturated fats and LDL cholesterol are the scientific cause of heart disease. There have been many studies on this topic. Just because the sugar industry pointed the blame at fat doesn't make them wrong. That's a genetic fallacy.

'Organic produce' is worse for the environment than factory farming; especially red meat.

That's great that your cholesterol levels are okay, but that's anecdotal evidence. You're also probably young. Your arteries will clog with cholesterol with age if you continue to consume animal protein according to the science.

It's not cherry picking studies, those are major meta-analyses; not single poorly conducted studies. If you have any scientific refutation of them, please, show me.

There is no such thing as 'balance' when it comes to ripping a sentient animal of its life unnecessary. It's just murder.
