Emperor Gates has a new decree: “All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef.”
Bill Gates has invested in Impossible Foods whose CEO, Pat Brown, says his genetically engineered synthetic meat substitutes will replace the use of animals by 2035.
You’d think Impossible Foods would focus on the horrors of factory farming. Instead, Gates and Brown take aim at regenerative organic agriculture and grass-fed beef. According to Fortune.com:
“Gates and Brown believe that genetically modified seeds and chemical herbicides, in the right doses––and not land-intensive organic farming––are crucial to curbing carbon emissions.”
But our best argument is what everyone instinctively knows, even before they learn the science: Genetically modified and synthetic Frankenfoods like the Impossible Burger aren’t good for us.
Integrative eco-nutritionist Sara Keough, technical advisor for Understanding Ag, has an important new presentation that we encourage everyone to watch: “Plant-Based Meats and the Potential Harm to Human Health.”
She’s also writing a series of articles:
Part 1 - The Rise of Plant-Based Meats and the Mission to Eliminate Animal Agriculture
Part 2 - The Hidden Dangers of Processed Plant Proteins
Part 3 - “Food Additives and the Controversy over Soy Leghemoglobin.” (Coming soon! Subscribe to Understanding Ag to be alerted when this article comes out.)

Once you know the truth, take action.
