Why Carnivore vs Plant Toxins with Anthony Chaffee Part 2

Why Carnivore vs Plant Toxins with Anthony Chaffee Part 2

Are Plant Toxins Killing You and Can The Carnivore Life Heal You?

Dr. Chaffee is an American medical doctor and Neurosurgical resident who, over a span of 20+ years, has researched the optimal nutrition for human performance and health. It is his assertion that most of the so-called chronic diseases we treat as doctors are caused by the food we eat, or don’t eat, and can be reversed with dietary changes to a species specific diet.

Quote: “It doesn’t matter how brilliant your theory is, and it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.” ~ Physicist Richard Feynman

Timestamped Show Notes:

00:30 – Introduction

10:30 – It was the most intense period of my life. Burma, there was some very crazy events, tension, and stress levels were always maxed out. It was in the middle of ISIS territory, I don’t think it was actually carved out as ISIS controls this, but they were very, very active in Bangladesh. Speaking to the locals there, they were telling me that they’re not only active, but they were supportive. They were supported by the local Imams and things like that.

22:00 – All of this data shows that if you’re metabolically healthy, you will do much, much better against things like COVID. I think that’s something that people can do, that they can affect in their own life. That is something that they can change, that they can affect, and they can take control their own health and their own destiny. A lot of diseases, even chronic disease, especially chronic diseases, are being shown to be metabolic issues. Metabolic issues are specifically brought about by not eating the right thing.

32:00 – On the topic of Fasting, from what I can see, all of the same benefits can be achieved just from being in that healthy metabolic state. You get the same Autophagy process where you clear your body of these senescence cells. You clear out those those pre cancer cells and all of those little half dead cells are working too well. So all of those benefits from fasting you get from just eating a proper diet, like the Carnivore Lifestyle because you’ll be in that metabolic state. There are a lot of studies with so called fasting mimicking diet, which is a ketogenic diet, and they find that it was really hard for people to fast. So I really don’t like it, you can do this by just getting in that healthy metabolic state.

40:30 – There are many people who made that same comment back in the early 80’s. They looked at other animals, because the argument was from all the experts at the time, they assumed that you had to eat carbs in order to burn carbs for getting biochemistry. That as soon as you stop eating carbs, you make carbs, so that’s what all of these people who supposedly took biochemistry assumed. Then we get into the topic of Gluconeogenesis.

51:15 – I don’t think we need supplements. I don’t think you need to take any of those things. If you think about what we eat for and what’s the purpose of eating. We’re trying to build and maintain animal structure, animal tissue, meat, right? So what by definition is going to have everything that we need, in the proportion that we need it, to build and maintain… MEAT aka a Carnivore Lifestyle.

01:02:40 – Plants don’t want to be eaten. You know, maybe their fruit, maybe they’d like that to get eaten. But even then, they want specific animals to eat them. They don’t want necessarily us to eat them. There are most fruits and berries that will kill you. If you go out into the wild, people that know about foraging, hunting, and survival out in the wild will tell you NOT to eat random red berries.

01:44:00 – Final Words Shown Below…


Our Final Words of the Show:

I think the main thing is we were having a lot of things come out, like Dr. Palmer’s book with the brain energy thing you’re looking at metabolic health. The last few years looking at the most people that were most affected were people that were metabolically unhealthy as well, finding out about, you know, cancer being linked to metabolism and the mitochondria. The main thing that you can do for your health and the health of your loved ones, and really just the happiness and sanctity of your life, is to look at your own metabolic health and try to take steps to become metabolically healthy.

I think that it fundamentally comes from what you eat, your metabolism is what you eat. You study biochemistry is really just the science of what we eat. And what happens when we eat certain things. The energy mobilization in your body, your metabolism is what you eat and so when you’re eating things that your body doesn’t really know how to use properly, you will damage your mitochondria. There are a lot of these toxins that we sort of touched on, but didn’t go into too much detail. But a lot of these plant toxins really damage your mitochondria, and just running on carbohydrates, damages and suppresses the function and expression of your mitochondria. So you make less of them. They’re suppressed in number as well as function.

So there are certain things and you can call them hacks, and you can call them whatever you want. But there are certain things that increase the efficacy of your mitochondria, map metabolism and the number. So there are certain things people can look into. This is all available on PubMed, Google Scholar, all these sorts of things. Take a look, see what is actually good for your mitochondria? I’m sure there’ll be other things mixed in there like, oh, this chemical and broccoli seems to help whatever. Okay, but what are the 150,000 other chemicals and what are they doing? Are those healthy as well? Are those contributing? Or are they diminishing from your metabolic and mitochondrial health. So I think that metabolic health is just the most important thing, it is what will keep you healthy, and it keeps you healthy longer. It will help you weather all sorts of different infections and it will prevent you from getting chronic diseases in the first place.

I don’t think that these so called chronic diseases like autoimmune issues like heart disease, even Cancer, and Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and diabetes, I don’t think these are diseases, they’re non-communicable. They didn’t exist 100 years ago, in any real numbers. These are coming from eating the wrong thing. They are damaging our mitochondria, they are damaging our metabolism. They are presenting themselves in these weird and horrible ways and they don’t need to exist if you take care of your metabolic health.
