$u$tainability. When you hear that word associated with something you might want to eat, stop what you’re doing and consider just what that word now means. It means money, bio-tech foods and much more.
A friend of mine, a self-described “vegan,” was telling me about the new, Impossible Burgers™, now being served at Burger King. I’m talking about one of the leading meatless meats now being consumed by unsuspecting consumers flocking to eat meat made from vegetable protein to avoid all the animal torture, environmental degradation and slaughter associated with industrial feedlot production of beef, pork, chicken, lamb and fish. The list of ingredients sounds pretty much like many of the vegan alternatives to animal products that have been on supermarket shelves for decades. But these so-called foods, like meatless meat and cow-free milk, are cooked up fresh from the lab in fermentation tanks. The cooks are some of the maddest of mad scientists in the world today. https://steemit.com/food/@camille1234/if-you-eat-food-you-don-t-want-to-miss-this
I could go on for pages and pages about the rampant expansion of patented formulations and processes that are entering the food we eat without proper health studies, basic consumer-safety regulations, or even a basic debate about the moral and ethical implications. Camille, the researcher who made the video link above, has covered (with lots of links) the widespread distribution and consumption of gene-spliced, pressure-treated, machine-textured, plant-based fats and protein engineered in unnatural combinations. Just what qualifies any of this lab goop as food, anyway? Don’t be a lab rat.
So, please watch the video, and watch what you eat. Only you can prevent self-inflicted disease from unwise food choices. If it sounds too good to be true, or smells a little fishy, just say no.
