Someone from our government really have to start and get that nation’s government to start doing it’s jobs. and stop their government officials from sending their sons and grandsons here to speed in our school zone with their Ferraris....

      @punkinhoot All of that is BS and I'm just gonna suggest you do some research if you wanna present a good faith argument. But, to indulge you a little bit, I'd like to ask where those "essential" fatty acids come from because last time I checked, salmon don't have the enzyme in their metabolism to desaturate fatty acids at the ω terminal position. Last time I checked, broccoli does. So does the algae that the salmon eat. So I'm gonna skip out on the antibiotics they douse wild salmon with since, as you can guess, the regulations aren't there for the consumers.

    • punkinhoot

      Vegan diets can be very low in those "essential fatty acids," found in eggs and fish. And a lot of "foods" labelled "vegan" are pretty disgusting/disturbing if you read the ingredients. Is like expecting words like "environmentally friendly," or "organic" to mean something either. If you prefer hydroponically grown vegetables, and expect they are free of chemicals and as nutritious as garden grown, you can do that. Just hope the water, either growth method, is free of giardia, I guess.

World wide deaths in 2019 as reported by WHO was 1.5 million for respiratory problems. This is an average per year. Why did we shut down the world for an extra million people ( who are probably part of the Covid deaths.

    Don't think for a moment that the D's will do anything for us. 911, 2008, & Covid all made the rich richer and the poor more powerless. disaster capitalism is a key weapon against us in the class war. Biden, Trump, the only difference is that Biden will accomplish more atrocities because the "left" is going back to brunch. Oh, look! we bombed Syria. Don't ever forget that Clinton passed Regan's NAFTA, the crime bill, and repealed glass-steagall. Obama bailed out the banks while enabling them to foreclose on homes, and Harris refused to prosecute mnuchin for his criminal banking practices in the recession.

    Most virusses is due to an overpopulation in one species, and its natures way to restore some sort of balance... Some of the best examples comes from large deer herds. Where the land no longer could substain the masses, so the weak got sick and spread and vola. On Another note. Most of the virusses originated in China where the population is booming in areas, leaving the poor in a even harder spot., And a great deal of bat species is on the red endangered list...

    Get rid of factory farming. That’s the greatest solution that he chooses to ignore. I respect this guy but he needs to be honest here.

    • punkinhoot

      @Joseph We grow corn for fuel. Research that. If animal poop is causing so much greenhouse gas, why aren't we using it for fuel instead? Read some labels at the supermarket. Where does your fruit come from? Does the same company that manufactures diapers also sell breakfast cereal, no, that's a Disney logo? Do you grow a garden? I do. Name a farmer who was subsidized during Mad Cow lock down. American dairy farmers are subsidized, Canadians have to meet a quota, is why Canadians cross border to buy cheese. In any case, the point of this video is weird diseases come from exotic pets and wild animals. As for feeding people all that grain fed to livestock...nobody wants to eat wheat anymore, glutton is a killer. Why do we have more pet horses than anytime in history? Seriously, why is that? Why are such a high percentage of vegetarians also suffering from eating disorders, they hide by assaulting consumers of real food? If you had your way, we'd be drinking crystal beverages made of food color and chemicals, and eating transfat as an alternative to butter, oh, wait....we are!

    • Joseph

      @punkinhoot we currently grow enough food to feed the entire human population multiple times over. But instead we feed the food to over 80 billion much larger land animals that give us way less food in return. Animal agriculture produces more greenhouse gasses then all transportation vehicles combined and that’s a fact. If you don’t believe me then do some research on it. The only reason animal products are affordable is because the government subsidizes them. 100 years ago meat was a luxury, now people think they need it in every meal. Eating a plant based lifestyle is the single biggest thing you can do to lower your environmental impact (if you don’t believe me then research it).

    12:37 that so called "wet market" is actually in Bangkok, Thailand and most of them are "kinda" illegal but they get away by selling these exotic animals through bribing local authorities. Main selling point of these markets are just for pets but for food is extremely rare and might use word play to not appeared as "barbaric" to common shoppers. Surprisingly, most thais don't notice any of this possible risk from this kind of market in their own country even during the current pandemic.

You know it started there, but you wont say because you're scared they will tell you to remove your video, or block your channel in China. : You did not acknowledge the problem is eating meat, and the solution is stop eating meat. Im not even vegan and I recognize that. You bundled up with the rest of unreachable plans to stop pandemics, when it is in fact the only real (and very doable) solution. But you didn't say it because you're a coward and don't want your viewers to get "triggered" because they are meat eaters.
