Description: Despite containing 18 million times more estrogen than normal beef burger.

The Washington Post published an entire article denying a claim by a veterinarian that Burger King’s new estrogen-packed vegan ‘Impossible Whopper’ could make men grow breasts if they eat too many. According to James Stangle, a doctor of veterinary medicine in South Dakota, the soy-based Impossible Whopper contains 18 million times more estrogen than the original beef Whopper. That works out at 44 milligrams of estrogen in the vegan burger compared to just 2.5 nanograms in the original beef Whopper. “Just six glasses of soy milk per day has enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male,” wrote Stangle. The Post tried to debunk his claims by pointing out that Tri-State Livestock News, where his article was published, is “a trade publication for the livestock industry” and represents cattle ranchers who have “declared war” on Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, two of the biggest companies behind plant-based meat substitutes. The science on whether substantial soy consumption feminizes men is still disputed, although given what many soy enthusiasts look and sound like, there appears to be a strong correlation. A Texas man who complained of sore, enlarged breasts and a decreased libido was later found to have estrogen levels eight times higher than normal, a result explained by his over-consumption of soy milk. Another 2008 study found that “men who ate the most soy had lower sperm concentration.” As Chris Menahan writes, “It’s worth noting that while the Washington Post is encouraging the pleb masses to chow down on estrogen burgers, the owner of the Post — the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos — is clearly taking large amounts of testosterone.”
For people wondering where American men’s testosterone is going, I think we can safely say it is being siphoned directly into Jeff Bezos’ veins.

Description: The impossible whopper is being advertised by Burger King as a plant based alternative to the whopper. When food manufacturers started talking about making artificial meat, I, too, thought it would be impossible to make a hamburger cheaply enough to make it competitive. You see, I assumed that they would have to buy the individual amino acids (the building blocks for protein) and chemically string them together in the proper order, then remove the reagents (chemicals needed to cause the chain reactions) and then add something to give it the right textures. ​The impossible whopper (made by Impossible Foods) bypassed all of those steps. Let’s compare the two. The impossible whopper patty is made from 24 ingredients. The most important ingredient is soy protein. The whopper patty has just one ingredient. That would be beef. ​The impossible whopper has 630 calories, mostly from the added oils. The whopper has 660 calories. So, about 5% less calories, this is not a huge improvement. The impossible whopper has 25 grams of protein. The whopper has 28 grams. Seems pretty equal, only 11% less protein in the impossible whopper. However, not all proteins are created equal. There are 20 amino acids. Nine of which are essential, meaning your body cannot make them so they are required in the diet. Each of those essential amino acids must meet a certain level to make a complete protein profile. If any essential amino acid does not hit the required amount, it is said to be rate limiting. As an analogy, picture nine chains connected in a line. All of the chains need to lift 100 pounds to carry the load. If one chain can only support 50 pounds, it doesn’t matter how much the others can support. The 50 pound chain is the rate limiting chain. ​As an extreme example, bovine gelatin, aka Jell-O, is 100% protein; however, it completely lacks the essential amino acid histidine. Therefore, its value as a protein is zero. In beef the rate limiting amino acid is tryptophan, which is at 79% of the required level. In soy protein, the rate limiting amino acid is methionine, which is at 41% of the required level. So, to compare the impossible whopper with the whopper, you have to take 0.41 x 25 grams of protein and compare it to 0.79 x 28 grams of protein. The impossible whopper has 10 grams of usable protein and the whopper has 22 grams of usable protein. So you would have to eat two and a quarter impossible whoppers to get the same protein in one whopper. ​Now, let’s compare the estrogen hormone in an impossible whopper to the whopper made from hormone implanted beef. The impossible whopper has 44 mg of estrogen and the whopper has 2.5 ng of estrogen. Now let me refresh your metric system. There are 1 million nanograms (ng) in one milligram (mg). That means an impossible whopper has 18 million times as much estrogen as a regular whopper. Just six glasses of soy milk per day has enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male. That’s the equivalent of eating four impossible whoppers per day. You would have to eat 880 pounds of beef from an implanted steer to equal the amount of estrogen in one birth control pill. There is one ingredient in the impossible whopper that bears mentioning. Beefs red color comes from hemoglobin, the oxygen binding protein in blood, and myoglobin, the molecule that takes the oxygen away from the hemoglobin. To get the same red color in an impossible whopper, they used leghemoglobin. This is the cool part. Leghemoglobin is made by the bacteria, Rhizobium. Rhizobium is the crucial bacterium that lives in the nodules of the roots of legumes like soybeans. Rhizobium has an enzyme that can take nitrogen from the air and turn it into fertilizer, which the plant can use. The bacterial enzyme that binds the nitrogen is damaged by the presence of oxygen so the bacterium makes the leghemoglobin to bind oxygen to keep it out of the way. To make enough leghemoglobin to add to the impossible whopper, scientists spliced the gene for leghemoglobin into yeast. They can grow the yeast easily and separate the leghemoglobin and add it to the impossible whopper. So the impossible whopper is technically a genetically modified organism (GMO). Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s cool. I’m all in favor of GMO’s. More should be done with them to improve our food supply. Currently, the only GMO protein that is legal in the US is a GMO salmon that is engineered to grow twice as fast. Unfortunately, the production and sale of it in the US is blocked by Senator, Lisa Murkowsky (R. Alaska). No doubt to protect Alaska’s salmon industry. Scientists have made a GMO milk cow which is modified to be polled (hornless) yet neither its meat nor milk is allowed to enter the food supply. What’s funny about the impossible whopper being a GMO is that the people most likely to eat it are the ones most likely to be against GMO’s. ​So when you watch the next Burger King commercial and you see the guy dressed as a cowboy eating an impossible whopper saying, “Well, I’m a darn fool”. “Just say, yep!” There is another word for really big lie. It is called a whopper. Here’s to hoping that the impossible whopper is a possible flopper.

EDITORIAL: Fake meat is not health food, Gov. Polis

EDITORIAL: Fake meat is not health food, Gov. Polis

Description: Gov. Jared Polis should advocate whole healthy foods, not processed junk. The governor inadvertently advanced the latest trend in junk food last month when he asked the Colorado Department of Agriculture to focus on meatless options going forward. Like other consumers, Polis has observed the recent proliferation of fake meatless hamburgers sold under the brands “Impossible Foods” and “Beyond Meat.” The governor was so enthused about fake meat he offered to buy Impossible Burgers for about 100 workers at the Agriculture Department’s new research lab in Broomfield. Polis also advocated meatless “meat” while eating a Burger King Impossible Whopper during an interview with Colorado Politics reporter Joey Bunch. Impossible Burgers look so much like meat they bleed “heme” from the questionably safe, genetically modified food color additive “Leghemoglobin.” The governor’s suggestion to produce and eat this concoction is terrible advice. Polis undoubtedly meant well. Like so many others, he probably fell for the processed food industry’s deceptive conflation of cheap food-filler products with health food. In doing so, he offended farmers and ranchers who produce real beef — Colorado’s largest export, by far. In promoting fake food, Polis did himself no favors among rural Coloradans who feel threatened by the imposition of low-range battery cars, a law Polis signed that threatens oil and gas production, and “green” energy policies that endanger rural coal mining and railroad jobs. An audience at the Colorado State Fair, an event focused on agriculture, booed Polis just days after he promoted fake meat. Meatless “meat” products are showing up all over the country. Qdoba pitches a trademarked “Impossible” protein product “made from plants.” White Castle serves a meatless burger called the “Impossible Slider.” Little Caesar’s serves the “Impossible Supreme” pizza. Subway has a “Beyond Meatball Marinara” sandwich. Even that famous health food oasis, Dunkin’ Donuts, serves a meatless “Beyond Breakfast Sausage Sandwich.” Pair that with a fried apple fritter and check the scale. It seems “impossible” and “beyond” belief that people buy into processed food — made of an astonishing list of additives — as healthy alternatives to meat. Here’s the ingredient list of an all-meat burger: ground beef. The ingredient list of an “Impossible” burger is: water; soy-protein concentrate; coconut oil; sunflower oil; natural flavors; potato protein; methylcellulose; yeast extract; cultured dextrose; food starch, modified; soy Leghemoglobin; salt; soy-protein isolate; mixed tocopherols; zinc gluconate; thiamine hydrochloride; sodium ascorbate; niacin; pyridoxine hydrochloride; riboflavin; and vitamin B12. The Beyond burger ingredient list: water; pea protein isolate; expeller-pressed canola oil; refined coconut oil; cellulose from bamboo; methylcellulose; potato starch; natural flavor; maltodextrin; yeast extract; salt; sunflower oil; vegetable glycerin; dried yeast; gum arabic; citrus extract; ascorbic acid; beet juice extract; acetic acid; modified food starch; and annatto. The Center for Food Safety, a health and environmental organization in Washington, D.C., warns fake meat is “ultraprocessed,” “poorly studied,” and “under-regulated.” “It is also high in sodium like many highly processed foods, which is something to be cautious about,” says Beth Warren, a registered dietician, nutritionist and author, as quoted by Prevention magazine. Famed nutritional expert Dr. Frank Lipman has spent 40 years writing, lecturing and teaching people how to achieve physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellness. Soy, he insists, causes harm to humans and the environment. “Some people think they’re being virtuous by replacing real meat with faux meat crumbles, Tofurky ‘roasts,’ veggie bacon, veggie burgers, and more. Bad move,” Lipman explains. “Though the raw materials for these meat substitutes may include vegetables, by the time they make it in the package, they are ultraprocessed, lab-made Frankenfoods.” He calls soy a “cheap and abundant” ingredient, the new “dream” of processed food manufacturers, and a “man-made mess.” “Soy plays a role in the development of a number of debilitating conditions, which can morph into far larger problems down the line,” Lipman writes. “For starters, soy disrupts thyroid and endocrine function. It interferes with leptin sensitivity, which can set you up for metabolic syndrome. Soy screws with your sex hormones by throwing off the estrogen and testosterone balance. It also helps block your body’s ability to access key minerals like iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium. If that weren’t enough, soy is a potentially lethal allergen to a segment of the population and an inflammation-triggering irritant to millions of people who may not even be aware that they’re sensitive to it.” Soy farms consume an enormous amount of water and, Lipman says, strip soils of nutrients. “Soy crops are amazingly destructive to just about everything they come in contact with,” Lipman wrote. Some people genuinely feel better, look better and improve their health by going vegan or vegetarian and eating genuinely healthy food. Meat is not for everyone, but overprocessed fake meats are not a good alternative. Gov. Polis, advise real humans to eat real foods; not Frankenfoods made to look, smell and bleed like real meat.
