    I wonder if the circulating antibodies to these chicken viruses would have a protective effect against related cancers, much like live vaccines? Or if the viruses were accidentally introduced in chicken pox vaccinations, given the uniform prevalence among the human population?

    Exposure to livestock has resulted in many if not most human diseases. Livestock such as pigs and chickens acted as reservoirs for certain pathogens that later mutated and gained the ability to infect their human tenders. Smallpox, anthrax, measles, all came from livestock.

    However the handling or consumption of cooked meat has little to no risk of disease.
    Its the handling of livestock and exposure to raw meat that can be hazardous. Especially if the animals are in crowded unsanitary conditions, double if many different species of animals are being kept together.

    The next super bug is not going to come from some madman with a petri-dish. Its probably incubating incubating right now in a South Asian bazaar :/

    Well, if they were eating BACON instead of chicken, they'd not be getting this virus

    I always enjoy watching your presentations, but am not willing to give up my BACON, Heavy Cream, Ice Cream, steak, and even chicken so I can eat sawdust and pineneedles.

    Oh dear, I used to eat that stuff decades ago….

    Great video format with the escalating questions. A question from me: if you stop eating chicken does it matter since you're already infected?

    Thanks for your great work and simple explanations. As James Madison once said, "Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." James Madison

    feeding chicken with animal food may have a role in this increased risk

    chicken egg vaccines

  • Reply Mr Grimv December 26, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    many vaccines are grown in chicken eggs. eating chicken is safe .. injecting chicken into your blood stream is not.

  • Reply Mr Grimv December 26, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    monsanto's round up/ glyphosate in the gm fed farm animals…. glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid..
    glyphosate finds it's way into most vaccines made from gelatin [pig bone] too.

    Hey NutirtionFacts team. Fasting, good or bad? I'm feeling better doing a higher fat diet with intermittent fasting. Are you going to dive into this topic in the future? Thanks!

    If the viral levels in office workers was equivalent to those in factory workers, and rates of cancer are potentially related to exposure to these viruses, why would the risk of cancer be so much higher in the factory workers if the viruses are to blame? Are the viral levels less important than frequency of exposure? The last bit confused me a bit.

  • Reply John McKelly December 27, 2016 at 2:05 am

    well.. I'd still eat some chicken or turkey once in a while, but I suppose that's the last thing that's gotta go then. I don't want to eat potatoes every day, so what do you guys do for B vitamins? Chicken and turkey are quite high in some of them whereas only specific vegetables are high in one but not the others.. do you guys take supplements? Any recommendations?

    Poultry in any form has no business in the human diet, end of subject, no research necessary.

    ok ,I love you to death,but really,you left us without a winning solution to combating possible infection! aside from the obvious organic plant strong active lifestyle!

    I can not believe how toxic meat is they should ban it just for that reason alone

  • Reply Balazs Pk January 4, 2017 at 8:23 pm

    Maybe there is an elevated level of mortality on a PLANET where they eat poultry, compared to a vegan planet 😀

    And yet, we are essentially forced to inject vaccines filled with these tag-alongs into our kids' muscles. What could go wrong?
