First principles: Plants don't want their roots, stems, leaves, and seeds (seeds, nuts, grains and legumes) to be eaten- and they've clearly evolved defense mechanisms to dissuade consumption of these parts. (Animals don't want to be eaten either but they can run away, bite, kick, etc.) Why do we assume that plant leaves like kale or plant roots like turmeric are good for us? I'm not convinced, and in this video I go deep down the turmeric rabbit hole to tell you why I think it's BS. If you want to eat a little every once in a while it's probably not a big deal, but daily consumption or mega-dosing can be potentially harmful IMO. #theremembering #animalbased
