The Leaky Gut Theory of Why Animal Products Cause Inflammation


“The Leaky Gut Theory of Why
Animal Products Cause Inflammation” The anti-inflammatory effect
of plant-based diets is more than just about
the power of plants, but also the avoidance of animal foods. We’ve known for 15 years that a single meal high in animal fat— Sausage and Egg McMuffins were used
in the original landmark study— can cause an immediate
elevation in inflammation within our bodies that
peaks at about 4 hours. Remember the whole
endothelial dysfunction story? Where you can hook up people to a device that can
measure the natural dilation of their arteries and blood
flow through ultrasound? So as you can see here, within hours of eating animal fat, our arteries get paralyzed, we nearly cut their ability
to open normally, in half. And that’s not just
happening in our arm– the lining of our whole vascular
tree gets inflamed, stiffened, crippled. From just one meal. And just as things start to calm down, five or six hours later, we may whack our arteries with another
load of meat, eggs, or dairy for lunch, such that most of our lives we’re stuck in this chronic, low-grade,
inflammation danger zone, which may set us up
for inflammatory diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer… one meal at a time. Does the same thing happen in our lungs? Yes, again, after just hours. Inflammation in our airways. A single meal with animal
fat causing internal damage not just decades down the road but right then and there, that day. What exactly is causing
the inflammation, though? Well, what is inflammation? It’s an immune response
to a perceived threat. What’s the body attacking though? At first, like in arthritis, scientists thought it might be the
animal proteins triggering inflammation, which the body might see as an invader. Whereas the reason plant foods
don’t trigger inflammation was thought to be because the body
doesn’t consider plants a threat. But you can get the same jolt of inflammation just eating whipped cream. There isn’t a lot of protein
in whipped cream, so attention turned to the fat. The saturated animal fat: the butterfat, or lard,
tallow, chicken fat. But that still doesn’t
answer the original question. What is the body attacking? Our immune system doesn’t attack just fat. So they dug deeper, analyzing people’s
blood before and after the meal, and found something extraordinary. After a meal of animal products, people suffer from endotoxemia. Their bloodstream becomes awash with bacterial toxins,
known as endotoxins. OK, well that certainly
explains the inflammation. We’ve evolved to be acutely
sensitive to bacterial invasion, and with this much endotoxin
flooding into our system after a meal, our immune system must
feel it’s under assault. OK, but where are the
endotoxins coming from? Well, the researchers knew
endotoxins come from bacteria, and they figured, “Hey,
where is there bacteria?” In the gut. So maybe animal fat causes our gut lining to become leaky and allow our own bacteria to slip into our blood stream and cause the inflammation
every time we eat. And indeed that’s what they found… in mice. You feed them lard
and their guts get leaky. And so for years, the prevailing theory has been that saturated fats increase the
permeability of intestinal lining and that contributes to the
breakdown of the intestinal barrier. But is that true in people? Stay tuned…

  1. You don't seem to fancy the inconvenient and incontestable dangers related to excessive animal product consumption… The vast majority of the science is in place: the underlying mechanisms are understood and the data is in agreement. I'm sorry if it will mean that you have to reevaluate your dietary situation, yet in the long run, your body and the planet will thank you.

  2. The GAPS diet (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) from Natasha Campbell is a protocol that helped thousands of people rebuild their gut flora and leaky gut. And it's based almost entirely on animal products. Your facts do not quite match.

  3. this video is misinformed they used mcdonalds food to do there study think about it. its not just that they're eating animal meat its the fact that they are eating something that has almost no fiber, high in high glycemic carbs and shitty ass meat with high fat,. Lets do this study on a lean meat and veggie using no hormones to raise the meat and then we'll see if we have a high inflammatory response. vegetarians suffer from numerous health defects caused by a low profile of amino acids.

  4. Funny, you can make the same exact argument about consuming high glycemic index carbohydrates. Saturated fat being bad for you is just a myth that was started back with Ancel Key's flawed studies. We are now in so deep that sometimes biased studies like the ones you present crop up. They are massively flawed and shouldn't be taken seriously.

  5. An answer to my prayers. I've asked tons of scientists, biochemists, and nutritionists, yet none know. Maybe you can help. Where is there even one hypothesized biological pathway on how eating a high fat diet leads to increased LDL or VLDL cholesterol? I don't even care if it is untested, I just want some reasonable guess as to the "underlying mechanism" you claim is known. (Hint: There is not even a guess as of right now).

  6. My friend you need to improve your reading capacity, your post is unfortunately, somewhat, unrelated to my post.

  7. It's actually spot on. The science you seem to think is in place against excessive animal product consumption is far from so. Not only is there little to no data that can't be explained easily by alternative (such as carbohydrate) hypotheses, but the basic biochemistry of why animal products would be bad is completely missing. There isn't even a guess as to how they would be bad for you. On the other hand carbs do cause inflammation, triglycerides, and VLDL as any Biochem text will tell you.

  8. Hmm. Are you sure it's the animal products and not the vegetable oils and wheat in an sausage egg mcmuffin???

    This study is bullshit and so is this video. Way to clusterfuck basic science and separation of variables.

    Logic. I has it. Maybe because I eat animal products…

  9. How can you make a conclusion form the consumption of an egg mcmuffin??? Please let me know if there is a study about eating free-range eggs (without the wheat, vegetable oils and whatelse McD puts into their muffins) and inflammation of the gut, then I might come back.

  10. EXACTLY. This is the M.O. of the vegan crowd: Conflate two very different things and ignore the difference between healthy sources of animal protein and sausage mcmuffins and homogenized, steroid milk. Not to mention that pork is not fit for human consumption according to all of the ancient spiritual traditions.

    One question to refute the whole claim of this video: What about people who have subsisted and even thrived on (healthy, properly prepared) animal products for thousands of years?

  11. All healthy populations ate a grain-based diet, and ate animals in times of famine…. and our food is now quite different then it was thousands of years ago.

  12. ???

    Where did you get this history of the world?

    There are plenty of very healthy indigenous populations that did not eat grains (or ate them infrequently) and ate animals and/or fish regularly (not just in times of famine). Examples: just about every island population on the planet.

  13. Sat fat needs to watched, but is it the cause of Leaky Gut. Stress modern anti-inflammatory, and long list of possible reasons have been sited in other studies.   

  14. BS.  Wow, insane how much bad info is in this vid and this whole site.  Paid by the ag industry are we?  Pushing grains. Guess what, its CARBS that cause the things this guy is attributing to meat!!  MOUSE studies are not accurate for humans, humans are not mice.  Mice are herbivores, humans are NOT.

  15. You maybe not distinguishing between trans fats and fats such as coconut oil. It's attacking the gluten wrapped around those animal products. Feeding beef lard to herbivores maybe not the same as carnivores also.

  16. Coconut Oil works great in healing the gut, and it has antifungal properties. 3 tablespoons per day, after meals. Also 4500 mg of glutamine will heal the gut, take before sleeping for best results. Hope this helps

  17. actually, some plants can also cause leaky gut.
    saponins/glycoalkaloids in potato, tomato, eggplant, pepper.
    gluten and gliadin in wheat.
    lectins in nuts, beans, soybean.

    the best diet for treating leaky gut is a vegan diet that also avoids plant toxins.
    plants have developed these toxins to ward off predators, including insects.
    you aren't exactly educated about this subject if you think all plants are completely safe for the gut.
    it's not as simple as "avoid all animal products!"

  18. I have a question, what kind of meat are we talking, exactly? Perhaps this is happening because they're using antibiotic-fed, gmo-fed, hormone-induced meat and dairy under tremendous stress that doesn't get any exercise, or sunlight

  19. Sorry i dont really understand english so i sometimes find it difficult to understand some stuff but on this Video time 2:10. i want to know if Orange Juice also contribute to inflammation because i can see it among the list. someone help me if i misunderstand it.

  20. 30 seoncds in…let me stop you right there. A sausage egg mcmuffin… 1. Loaded with trans fat 2. High in sodium. 3. Processed garbage. There's 3 simple variables that could easily cause the inflammation you're talking about. Stop talking about the subject as though you're objective and not trying to just sell snake oil to the health crowd.

  21. Another item to think of, if humans evolved from apes, and I tend to think it maybe the case, then essentially we ate raw meat and some raw vegetation and raw fruits and cooked nothing for millions of years, maybe when we started cooking it was a result of eating animal brains and fats, which our brains used and maybe caused growth in size. None of the vegetation was sprayed with pesticides, none of the animals injected with hormones and fed modified foods. Raw fish as well. Maybe cooking it kills the good and the bad, but sometimes makes more bad? We probably ate bugs also, the idea of paleo diets seem to imply a raw diet and not much concern whether it maybe animal or plant, like most other living creatures on the planet, the big fish eat the small fish, the dinosaurs ate other dinosaurs and mammals, etc. Down to the micro organism level, killing and consuming something whether a star getting sucked into a black hole or a microorganism attacking another one inside our bodies, all of life fights and dies in a cycle and chain, plants can kill off those that feed on the wrong ones. If we were meant to only eat plants than none of them would kill us, to find meaning in life maybe like a religion.

  22. The cream used in this study contained carageenan, known to cause inflammation. I'm not a scientist, but I questioned this immediately. Why are these studies so poorly done?

  23. I really love this product. It is pleasant tasting and is easy to use. I have noticed a considerable amount of improvement in the way I feel. I have a lot of confidence in taking Dr. Axe's products because I believe they are of the highest quality. Dr. Axe truly cares. I would purchase this again and again.

  24. Some researchers believe that lectins and gluten cause leaky gut. However, lectins, which are found abundantly in grains, legumes and night shade vegetables, can be neutralized by boiling.

  25. did anybody else get that??, "sausage and egg mcmuffins were you used in the original study". Uhh, please give me another study, please, that shows these same results of inflammation with quality meat (antibiotic-free, grass-fed, free-range cattle).

    It's preposterous to conclude all animal meat causes inflammation from the study used, trust me, I am open to the possibility, but please tell me there are other, better tailored studies that this!

  26. its the omega 3 and 6 polyunsaturated fats that do this not the saturated fats take coconut for example

  27. Dx: Ulcerative Colitis 03/2008.
    I can actually feel body increasing in temperature followed by abdominal pain, etc. (all severe symptoms).

  28. it's really no surprise so many people report huge benefits from intermittent fasting when most of the meals they are skipping would be high in animal fats. If they'd try eating plant based, they'd realize that the fasting part is redundant, especially considering plant based food can easily be nearly calorie free.

  29. this video is so upside down
    2:07
    "the body doesnt consider plants a threat"
    yeaa right lul
    in one of his newest videos he pushed lectins under the rug
    and he did with phytic acid too
    if 95% of ppl are alright with lectins and phytates it doesnt mean there r 5% that get bloated/inflamed guts from them

    probably if one would process these properly (soak+ferment+pressure cook) one could make nice grain products that dont trigger pretty much any1 on this planet….but no one does that lol

    however the fact that he says animal protein messes with leaky gut is simply just…so wrong
    best food i accidentally found to healing leaky gut is a gulasch soup variation i came up with
    fried onion "juice" (discarding the onion solids for possible weak stomachs)+ a cup of red wine (to deglaze) + fried up beef meat(A LOT OF MEAT…preferably the really fatty kind) + tomatoes (like 10 tomatoes/kg meat) + salt + pepper + paprika powder + chilli powder + teaspoon bicarbonate: LET SIMMER FOR 2 HOURS

    instead of serving this with rice or noodles (ffffffuck those) u use a mixture of 1:1 chia:flax (like 5 tablespoons of flax + 5 tablespoons of chia for example…) and then u put hot water to the seeds put salt into it and stir (i know these do contain similar anti-nutrients too….but somehow this works…..at least for me…maybe cuz of low carb or maybe because of their goeyness)
    it turns super slimy withing 3-5 minutes

    then u simply put the gulasch soup ontop of it and mix it all well

    before u eat drink a lot of water since the seeds r probably not fully soaked up
    eat until u feel full (its a bit strange with this "seed instead of grain" substitute garnish but i find it actually pretty yummy)

    i feel significantly better within 2 hours
    hope someone tries this "odd" low carb paleo like dish and sees improvements

  30. Really? McMuffins? And all animal foods are to blame for inflammation? Sugar, excess carbs and trans fats (AKA hydrogenated vegetable oils) are the main causes of inflammation and heart disease.

  31. Why in the world would anyone do a study using a sausage and egg McMuffin? How would you know what was actually causing the problem? Maybe it was the muffin! (Not saying that's the case, just that this study proves nothing except don't eat sausage and egg McMuffins, lol.) Very bad, sloppy science.

  32. The animals that the meat came from had inflammation also due to their grain based diets, think about it. Grass fed beef won't produce the same results.

  33. I turned vegan and got a leaky gut, I'm guessing it was caused by the hi fruit content I was consuming, know I'm am healing my self through animal protein, I think the world's gone vegan crazy now a days, u need a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, and animal protein, simple.

  34. This is just not true.. The least anti inflammatory diet is the Ketogenic diet! Composed of guess what?

  35. Nice video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you considered – Franaar Strong Immunity Formula (google it)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for Curing Leaky Gut Syndrome minus the normal expense. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my friend Sam after a lifetime of fighting got cool success with it.

  36. Egg McMuffin and Sausage McMuffin??? That stuff is not healthy??? Really?? Who would have thought?? And I am sure the animal fat is the only bad thing in McMuffins!! 😀 This is very bad study to open that argument with.. And where is the link to the Mice study? I really would like to know what they fed this mice and for how long. Did they compare feeding a high fat animal fat diet to a high fat plant fat diet?
    I mean it is known that not eating enough pro-biotics causes leaky gut problems. But I have not seen a study that said that plant fat would not cause that problem. On the other hand we know that plant fat is high in Omega 6 and we know that to much Omega 6 is a huge contributor inflammation. Has that been accounted for???

  37. There is so much wrong with this. Why did they use an egg mcmuffin instead of high quality grass-fed, organic meat? Of course factory farmed meat is going to be unhealthy and inflammatory. Dairy is also inflammatory because 70+% of adults don't have the enzymes needed to break down the proteins contained in dairy products. This is so flawed it hurts. Show me a study using meat sourced from healthy animals raised in humane conditions vs cramped in a factory farm and fed a diet of corn/grains/skittles. How do you explain that thousands upon thousands of people have turned their health around by SWITCHING from a vegan/vegetarian diet to a diet that including high-quality meat? If you get quality meat, it is incredibly nourishing and healing to the human body. I can't argue with egg mcmuffins and whipped cream being unhealthy. Of course they are. No wonder people are so confused about what to eat. This video is awful.

  38. A sausage egg McMuffin? Wait, like they went to McDonald's or was it home made with grass fed meat? Whipped cream is also processed, boiled cow's milk with added sugar. Did you get that off of the top of a Mcfrappe?

    I guess the mouse study is slightly accurate. Still not a human, but okay.

  39. I only learnt what leaky gut is because of the litany of now ex vegans who developed the condition before going back to consuming animal products.

    Just saying.

  40. High sugar diet, high saturated fat diet and lectins from plant cause leaky gut…eat lean meat, fish, olive oil, lectin free veggies and fruits and do IF. Thanks me later.
