    You can't knock what you don't know.

Lol this bs idea that vegans are somehow immune needs to stop. There's nothing that can help you if you have bad genes. My grandpa was born with a weak heart and died from a stroke. That guy died not knowing what meat tasted like. Geez.

    Also forgot to add the systematic oppression of Brahmin women in the south. Apparently being vegetarian doesn't make you a decent human being.
    Doesn't the eurocentric views around dietary health get annoying after a while of reading the same nonsense about how veggies are the god send of ultimate human health.

    But we all know that hindus have been vegetarians for thousands of years .. but for some reason they suffer from largely the same heart problems etc as omnivores.

    Sometimes I question the validity of health science around heart problems a lot. They keep changing their standards and ideas every few years.

    A decade ago "OMG EGGS WILL KILL YOU". Recently "Oops .. I guess we were wrong about eggs after all"

    *shrug*

    Oh and as a desi, when I see non-desis vax poetic about the magical properties of turmeric (haldi), I die a little inside trying not to laugh in their faces.

    Omg completely. Brahmin's from Kerala are now occuring more and more cases of diabetes. More thyroid conditions are happening. Lmao some pseudo health person once gave me a lecture about why cabbage causes diabetes, like Wut.

    It doesn't matter if you're vegan or whatever. If you just eat crap you're going to get sick. My mom used to be obese, and started losing weight only after she started developing arthritis. The woman is so ardently vegetarian, she feels nautious at the smell of meat. She has had thyroid conditions, and recently been coping with depression. I mean, do people seriously think Indians are "healthy?" Roughly half the population is vegetarian here. The west needs to stop believing these ridiculous lies honestly.

    No way, man!!

    I read this website this one time by some guy who had studied things and he said he gave up all forms of modern medicine to live in India and you guys have developed a lifestyle far superior to that of the West but you're just keeping it secret from us because lol America and the American government wants us all to die which is why they don't tell us and just use plane trails to control the population.

    I read it so it was true.

    Yah. Westerners LOVE imported magic snake oil from exotic lands. It's been their thing for centuries.

    Seriously, it's a simple matter of putting two and two together which many can't at all. It's a combination of hipsterism combined with actual ignorance of the land this magical snake oil "cure" (both ideology and product) is being imported from.

    Hindus have lower life spans than Westerners even in sanitized urban landscapes and lifestyles. Hindus are vegetarians. Westerners are omnivores. Logically, what does that actually suggest?

    Chinese have a lower lifespan than the West even in their urban areas. They've been drinking Tea (in fact they're the ones that are credited with the origins of tea drinking culture) for thousands of years .. Unfortunately, the magic property of chai decided that Chinese and Indians are not worth saving, but let's go and save white people in the west instead

    Well, they can't really help it. Most westerners have NO clue whatsoever what the rest of the world is like at all. So it makes them vulnerable to snake oil salesman all the more. So I don't necessarily blame them. You can't develop a complete world view, if you only know about your own inner circle.

    Alternative medicine doesn't work. The only thing that works is pills and surgery.

    But if you ever get sick feel free to come here tho. Actually feel free to come here even if you aren't sick. I'll take care of you <3

    Yup. Terrible, terrible misinformation out there about the subcontinent. It's horrifying actually because it is leaving a LOT of unsuspecting idiots from seeking real treatment for real problems.

    It's worse for me as a desi to see this because I come from there and I know that none of this magical shit westerners are talking about with regards to the magical properties of the magical substances and lifestyles of us desis is true. None of it. Not Yoga. Not Meditation. Not Hamalayan Salt. Not Turmeric. Not Chai. Nothing.

    It's all lies.

    Wow Yoga is a big one. It does nothing. I mean, do it as a workout, it may have some benefits but that's about it. And another thing is the whole spirituality thing. Why would anyone believe that? Hinduism is terrible, the people aren't nice. Everything you can think of, that's bad in the west is a hundred times worse here. Like have you seen our crime rates? Do you really think we're a spiritual people?
