Layne Norton Biolayne (What The Health Clown #4)
So, I just had to watch What the Health. You “had” to watch it? Okay. So, it sounds like you were coming from a very open-minded, impartial, unbiased point of view. Let’s have a listen to what you have to say. Because we’re making a reaction video and then some other content based on it- And this is the response video he is just referring to. It’s like a Facebook live stream or something with this girl, and it’s really long. It’s like 33 minutes, and it’s absolutely full with nonsense. It’s really cringe-worthy. I’d love to respond to all of it point by point, but it’d just be so long, and I can’t be bothered to waste so much time on this idiot. But, so I’m going to respond to this him sitting in the car in that Facebook upload, rather than this. But there was just a couple of things right at the start that I wanted to address. Girl: For this first one, we are fact checking the new Netflix documentary “What the Health.” Spoiler alert, the next 30 minutes will not contain that many facts or fact-checking. In fact, it will contain allot of his own personal opinion, allot of rambling, allot of misrepresentation of science, a generous serving of straw man arguments, and saying things which don’t actually exist in the documentary. And to help us fact check this, we have PhD in nutritional science, power lifter, and co-founder of Avatar Nutrition, Layne Norton with us. So, this guy makes it very clear he’s got a PhD. If you go to his Twitter, even his name has “PhD” in it. His Instagram says “PhD,” and on his website LinkedIn he’s “Dr. Layne Norton.” So, what research did he do to get his PhD? My research that I did on protein intake and branched amino acids was funded by The Egg Nutrition Center and the National Dairy Council. So, this guy receives money from the very industries criticized in the documentary, bear that in mind. Also bear in mind that his livelihood depends on selling bullshit supplements to gullible people, and the supplements contain animal products. And, I can honestly say, it is the biggest pile of shit I have ever seen in my life. Simply saying something is a pile of shit isn’t actually a point. Please rebut it with a point. It is shocking to me that anybody believes anything in that film. You being shocked isn’t a point, either. Please actually make a point. There was a lie where they literally claimed that putting vegan blood on a petri dish with cancer cells would kill the cancer cells. Are you out of your mind? Well, here’s the science: here’s one study which says that, here’s another study which says that, here’s another study which says that. You can’t just debunk three studies by saying, “Are you out of your mind?” Can you actually, can you be more specific here? The hypocrisy in the film is unbelievable. First off, every single expert on the film, without exception, every single one is a vegan and has vegan based buisnesses. Well, what did you expect? Do you think they were going to get Loren Cordain and then preach the Paleo diet in a film where they’re saying that saturated fat and cholesterol is bad for you? Obviously not! In particular, True North, which is owned and operated by several doctors in the video, who showcases their patients in the video, somehow magically being cured by a vegan diet after two weeks. Well, hold on a minute. It was like 15, 20 experts in that film. How many experts do you need? Here’s some more experts; here’s 700 more experts which are saying the same thing: We’re working to change federal nutrition policy, but until that happens, we have hundreds of doctors from across the nation here to share this important message about taking your health into your own hands: “Prevention Over Pills!” Apparently, that conflict of interest is completely fine. But, The National Dairy Council sponsoring research, that is just beyond evil. Another straw man. No one’s actually saying that is beyond the evil. They were just saying that those particular industry funded studies were designed to be fallacious because, for example, the cholesterol baseline study was deliberately made to show that more cholesterol in the diet wouldn’t raise your LDL cholesterol. When that’s actually false. They were designed to be fallacious studies. It’s just, I am shocked that people buy into this garbage. Saying something is garbage isn’t an actual point. Please make a valid point. Then they go through the trouble of explaining why we are not evolved to eat meat, which was completely garbage by the way. Again, just saying something is garbage isn’t actually a valid point. You’re not debunking anything. You’re just calling it garbage. If you actually think it’s garbage, please explain why you think it’s garbage. Otherwise, you’re just not making any point at all. Next. And then they really quickly gloss over the fact that if you don’t eat meat, you won’t get B12, so you should probably take some fortified foods or supplement with B12. If we were evolved to eat a completely plant-based diet, why the fuck would you need supplemental B12 or fortified foods, hmm? Hello. I’m Dr. Karin Dina, and today we’re going to talk about vitamin B12 and the Framingham Offspring Study. 3,000 participants. None of them were vegetarian. They were all omnivores, and 39% of them were found to be either insufficient or deficient in vitamin B12. And the researchers found that there was no association between blood B12 levels and meat, fish, and poultry intake. Amongst other claims, they claim that dairy was racist. No, this is just a stupid straw man. No one actually said that dairy was racist. Let’s have a look at that actual clip. Greger: Most people in the world are lactose intolerant. I mean, that’s the normal state of affairs. Why would your body create these enzymes that digest lactose after weaning? After infancy, it doesn’t make any sense. 73% of African Americans are lactose Intolerant. 95% percent of Asians. Roughly 70% of native Americans and about 53% of Hispanic Americans are lactose intolerant. Our government is encouraging Americans of color to eat foods that it knows is going to make them ill. Ultimately, what that boils down to, is the government is telling me as an African American to eat food that’s going to make me ill for no health benefit, so that it will benefit dairy farmers as a form of institutionalized racism. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around how they made that leap, that Gary is racist. Well, if you just went back and watched the video again, you’d see that it’s actually quite easy to understand. I don’t know why you think it’s a massive leap. Just watch the clip again. It’s not really difficult to comprehend. I feel like, to address the level of bullshit in What the Health, it would take me 18 hours to make a comparable video dismissing every bullshit claim they made. Calling something bullshit isn’t an actual point. Actually have a point; I’ll stop whinning like a little bitch. Listen, if you’re a vegan because you decide that it’s how you want to live and that hurting animal’s unethical. That’s your decision. That’s totally fine. Don’t force your ethics on other people. So, you’re saying that ethics are subjective, and we should respect other people’s subjective ethics. Like, if I wanted to anally rape you, and I think it’s okay to anally rape people you should respect that and allow me to anally rape you. And if you don’t want me to do that, then you aren’t respecting my ethics. You see how that doesn’t work? This is completely retarded. And two: don’t bend scientific data to support your bias. By the way, I’m not doing weird editing to cut him off here. That’s his own editing, but to address his point, no they didn’t manipulate the data. So many people claim that What the Health manipulated data. No, they’re just going on the studies. You can see the studies yourself. You can just look up the same studies and read the same conclusions. Why isn’t it enough to just say, “You know what? This is what I believe, and it’s what I’m going to do”? That’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with that. Why do you have to force your beliefs on everybody else? Well, I think it’s ethically okay to stab you in the face because you have an obnoxious pillock. Please respect my wishes. You’re no better than a religious zealot. Whether or not someone is religious has no impact on the environment, which is getting absolutely messed up from animal agriculture. It has no impact on the billions of animals which are killed each year. It has no impact on your health, which this documentary discusses. Being religious has no impact on any of those things, but consuming meat does. So, it’s a false analogy. Oh, I forgot one other thing. They talked about casein forming caseo mores. “Caseo mores?” No, they talked about casomorphins. Which is just as addictive as heroin, and cheese’s calling out to people in the middle of the night. Casomorphin is, by natural design, addictive. If you want to disagree with that, then you’re just delusional. Holy shit! How are any of you dumb enough to believe this stuff? Again, saying “holy shit” isn’t actually a point. If you’re too retarded to actually make a decent rebuttal of What the Health, then don’t bother making a video.
