Comment: There isn't much disagreement about the problem.

There isn't much disagreement about the problem.

The cause and the solution are the issues, and I think this video is just more vegan/vegetarian propaganda.

The assertion that animal fat or meat is the cause and a plant based diet is the solution is where I have a problem with this thread. The idea that the cause is that we eat food from animals flies in the face of all of human history and the current scientific studies. There are countless societies that have eaten diets high in meat and animal fat with excellent results, and I know of no society that lived long term on only plant based foods.

Here is an alternative, much more likely explanation as the cause of atherosclerosis:

The hypothesis is lack of vitamin K2 causes the calcification of arteries (atherosclerosis) and the lack of calcium in bones and teeth. And what does a vegan diet do to us but deprive us of great sources of K2 like pasture raised beef, lamb, chicken, and eggs.

There is correlation between low K2 and atherosclerosis:

And here is some actual science to support the hypothesis that K2 deficiency is involved in calcification of arteries:
