( music playing )Welcome back.
Now, when it comes to
fact checking a lot people like
to use the site
Snopes.com. – Today, Link and I
are gonna play a little–
– Link: Hey! This isn’t that funny
anymore. I didn’t even realize
you were gone. I’m super glued
to a freaking wall. – Can you get me down?
– Okay. – Welcome back, Link.
– Thank you. That was quiet
an experience. Yeah, you were great
at catch. ( laughs ) Now as I was saying
before, Snopes.com is the definitive
internet reference source for urban legends,
folklore, myths, rumors,
and misinformation. and if you don’t believe me,
just check Snopes. Okay, so what we’re
gonna do is, is we’re gonna each
read a commonly held
belief, urban legend, bizarre facts, something
of the sort. and the other person
is gonna have to guess if it’s true or false
according to Snopes. Rhett present me
with the first one. Um, and I will let
you know what I think
Snopes says. Okay.
On December 31st, 2017, Business Insider published
an article claiming,“Chocolate is on track
to go extinct in 40 years.”
I remember this. I actually remember this
because you mentioned it to me in a panic,
but I never read
the article. Okay, is it true
or false? Cacao… – ( laughter )
– is grown– I wasn’t just making,
like, an expletive. Cacao! I don’t know
what the answer is! You know what?
That’s a good… Are you trying to teach
your kids, like, to release their tension without
using curse words, cacao is a good one. – Well, it’s
– It’s also a good
celebratory term. – Cacao!
– It’s dangerously close
to ka-chow, which is Owen Wilson’s
catch phrase when
he was a car. Yeah. Might as well
be a curse word. You don’t–
You don’t want to
flirt with that. Um, I mean… cacao is grown in areas that are being threatened
ecologically. I’m making this up. – ( laughter )
– Um, sounds good though. And, it would ring true
to me if you were to tell me – that the areas–
because of climate change,
– Mm. The, uh, whole cacao regions,
wherever they are. Those hot places
where cacao is grown is, uh, is being,
is being turned into
parking lots. – So, is it true or false?
– So that’s it. It’s definitely true. – Uh…
– I think I made myself clear, – I’m very confident.
– You’re all over the right
track. but you’re going in
the wrong direction,
technically, – because it is false.
– I’m going in the wrong
what? – The direction.
– Okay. – Okay.
– Rhett:This was reported
by Forbes,
Newsweek, Food & Wine–when Food & Wine gets into it,
you wanna believe it.
Uh, basically it’s false
because what the business– False? That’s good news.
Good news! The Business Insider
article stated that
over half the world’s chocolate just come from
just two countries in West Africa,
the Ivory Coast and Ghana, and by 2050,
the rising temperatures
will push today’s chocolate growing regions
more than 1,000 feet up hill – into mountainous terrain.
– Mm-hmm. Basically they’re saying,
the cacao plants are slated to disappear
as early as 2050… – They gotta climb the
mountains.
– thanks to warmer temperatures. However, that doesn’t
mean it’s gonna go extinct. It just means it’s gonna
get difficult to grow
chocolate. and they’re gonna have
to figure out some
other way to do it but ain’t nobody
gonna let chocolate
go extinct. – So…
– ♪ Ain’t nobody ♪ – Chocolate covered click bait,
– ♪ Gonna lose that chocolate ♪ – is what this was.
– Oh, yeah? And incidentally,
in a weird twist of fate, we’re using the same
exact title for this video. – Thanks for clicking.
– Not gonna go extinct though. – Don’t worry.
– I got one for you. A popular topic of
debate on social media is whether or not
meat is bad for you,
right? Uh, well informed
vegetarians will likely point to scientific
research demonstrating that vegans or vegetarians – live longer lives.
– Lives? Live longer lives
than their omnivorous
counterparts. So, Rhett, do vegetarians
live longer than
meat eaters? 100% yes. Unequivocal.
Definitely. Just based on what? Based on the fact that
while meat is a great source of protein,
there are better sources of protein that are cleaner,
like beans, crickets– A vegetarian doesn’t eat
an insect. Insectetarians do though. We should come up
with a word for that. There probably is one. Uh, no, but I think
that the, uh, the other
bad effects, the cardiological effects. – The Cardi B?
– Yeah, the Cardi B effects
of meat. uh, it balances,
it cancels itself out. Vegetarians live longer. Uh, well, here’s what
Snope says. Uh, “A survey conducted
by Loma Linda University compared the life spans
of the general population to a large population
of vegetarians Seventh Day Adventists. Okay,
that’s a little strange. Because they’re just
obsessed with those
Seventh Day Adventists. – No, because they’re
vegetarians.
– They’re vegetarians. They lead a very
strict, healthy
lifestyle. which includes no meats. Um, the data was collected
between 1976 and 1988 and the results were,
Adventists vegetarian
men and women have expected ages
of death at 83.3 and 85.7
years respectively. That’s older than normal. And that, yeah,
that is 9 and a half and 6.1 years,
respectively for men
and women greater than those
of the 1985 California
population. – So almost–
– Which is the only population
that matters. Yeah, so I don’t know
how scientific this is. Like in ’85 California
population. Seventh Day Adventists
may be doing other things. Uh, to keep themselves
out of trouble. But I know I’m right
about this. Vegetarians live longer. Mmm, but! – To counter the study.
– Uh-oh. A study in 2015
in the UK, um, the study was part
of the European
perspectiveinvestigation into cancer
and nutrition survey.
Lots of words which
makes it seem legit. Mm-hmm. Um, more than 60,000
people. They found that
vegetarianism provided
no overall reduction in risk of early death.
Hmm. That was the UK though,
right? – Uh…
– You can’t trust those people. The study also showed
that 30% of vegetarians will die at Burning Man. – ( laughter )
– So what are you saying? – Uh, the overall–
– Are you saying it’s
inconclusive? – the overall conclusion–
– Is be a Seventh Day Adventist. From Snopes is that
it is unproven. And if you want to know
how vegans feel about
this conclusion, – oh, don’t worry,
they will tell you.
– Yes they will. Uh, so, you weren’t
right. I believe that I was
and that’s what makes
it controversial. Yeah, you could be
right, but you could be wrong. Thanks for liking,
commenting, and subscribing. Don’t panic,

    If been a vegan since 20yrs old and now at 29 I feel great with no health problems, walk and jog my dog everyday. I don't miss meat one bit and habe turned it down after trying it once a few years back and ended up making me very sick. Go clean, go green and go vegan folks, you won't regret it.

    Hello vegan here 🙋 yeh idk about the living longer thing since that's not solely based on diet, but I 100% believe that a healthconscious vegan is healthier than a healthconscious meat-eater just due to the numerous studies based on cholesterol/fat etc as well as personal accounts of feeling healthier by plant-based people

    Vegetarian/vegans could live the same length or shorter than meat-eaters. However, I believe people who eat a more plant-based diet will live longer than people who eat a standard American diet. Vegetarian/vegan vs meat-eaters is much too broad a question.

    Wrong. Meat is the best way to get protein and we don’t just eat it for protein, we eat red lean meat for vitamins b-6 and b-12. And for iron, and minerals that you can’t get from anything else. The problem people face is we eat too much of everything. Our portions are too big. We also eat too much sugar and highly processed junk food.

    lifespan studies will always be flawed because they include all deaths. when someone dies young because of an accident or a murder they haven't gotten to really live out their expected lifespan. Same goes for tragic diseases that take early life. If the life expectancy only included those who live through old age it would be much much higher. Also, the vegetarian study probably had a higher lifespan because it was made up of only adults, so naturally the lifespan would be higher.

    Vegetarians do live longer tha meat eaters on average… when you're comparing the average vegetarian to the average meat eater. But the average vegetarian focuses a lot more on living a healthy lifestyle. Compared to meat eaters with a healthy lifestyle, they do not live longer. Still, if it's meat eaters in general… vegetarians do win out in age. But they still lose because meat is delicious.
