Well speaking for everybody, so say all of us.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I don't have to do all that ... here it is straight from the horse's mouth: "Burger King's research indicated that 9 percent of people buying plant-based meat are vegetarian, but 90 percent are meat eaters looking for healthier options".

If I wanted a "healthier alternative," I would start by not eating at Burger King. I'd make my own burger at home, and it wouldn't be some nasty, sponge like, fake burger.

Great article, thanks for posting! I wholeheartedly agree with her (Dr Vandana Shiva is female); I believe I am on record on this forum as saying many of the same things she posted:

"Good Food and Real Food are the basis of health" ... the food pyramid is a lie, it suggests you can eat bad food like meat and dairy because you are going to balance it with good foods like fruits and vegetables; if you want to improve your health, then stop eating the bad foods and only eat the good foods. Everything you eat is either healing you or hurting you; there is no middle ground.

"Bad food, industrial food, fake food is the basis of disease" ... exactly, it is not possible for a healthy human being to get sick, if you get sick it is because of something you ate (or drank touched inhaled etc). There is nothing within the human body to make you sick, all disease comes from outside the body.

"Hippocrates said Let food be thy medicine" ... there is only one medicine: food. Drugs do not heal disease, if you want to treat symptoms get drugs from a doctor, but if you want to actually heal disease eat healthy food.



So why would I promote a fake hamburger that I know is not "healthy"?? If you are in America and are eating from the processed food menu, then this would be a step in the right direction. We know that animal meat has growth hormones, steroids, antibiotics, not to mention all the diseases the animals acquire while confined in their unsanitary cages at the factory horror farm.

But the recently acquired knowledge of the genetic modifications used to create the Impossible Whopper makes me question if it should be eaten at all?? The reason for the rat testing is because it contains a new chemical that has never existed in the food supply ever before ... the long term effects of this new food are completely unknown and can't be predicted.



Now if you want a good vegan burger, I can suggest the Sunshine Burger: made with organic whole ingredients ... only five ingredients: rice, sunflower seeds, carrots, chives, and salt. I used to make my own using peanut butter instead of sunflower seeds, but the sunflower seed version does taste better.

I consider all meat from the grocery store to be bad; even if some of it is good, you have no way to know which meat is bad or which meat is good. Maybe the cow you are eating was in good health, maybe it wasn't?? Once it is ground up and put into a can or box, you have no idea what you are eating. Do some research ... there are chemicals they put on the meat so it will stay red and look good even after it goes bad.

The same thing with vegetables actually ... you have no idea if the tomatoes in your can had fungus growing all over them or not. That is why I grow my own food, so I will know if my food is good or bad. Here is a long video of a garden tour, I queued it up to an interview with the gardener where he says something along the lines of this:

"you hear all this about bad food and its organic or its not really organic ... so I said okay, I'm giving someone else responsibility for my life, so decided that I will grow and if I grow bad or good I will be the master of my own fate rather than trusting the labels on some cans or produce out there and then blame someone else, so I want to take the blame and assign the responsibility to myself"

The last piece of meat I ate was from given to me by a hunter who owned a deer farm; that was about five years ago ... I don't think I would eat deer today. Why not??

A deadly deer disease is spreading. Could it strike people, too?

Venison is what we call the meat of a deer.

A deer is a game animal and so a hunter who owned a deer farm sounds odd.

Why odd?? He owns a hundred acres of woods that have deer living on it ... so he plants stuff they can eat and hunts them. Very common in my area, lots of hunters in the south ... lots of hunters, lots of woods, lots of deer.

There is a difference between a deer park and a deer farm. There are quite a few old deer parks here in Britain. Most of our Venison in the shops, however, comes from New Zealand where deer are farmed I believe. It is something to do with the law and subsidies. We do not hunt farm animals now do we?

If they are confined to a one-hundred acre of land ... and their water source is directly in sight of the deer stand ... than I don't actually consider that "hunting". It is not like his deer are forging food in the wild, he planted food specifically for them so that is a form of "farming" ... "free-range farming" to be exact.

For the most part, selling wild game in America is illegal ... Arby's is selling deer-burgers in a couple of states claiming they are "deer from a free-range farm". Apparently, farming deer is cost prohibitive so it is uncommon to find deer meat for sale.

Some states allow hunters to sell deer, but historically that hasn't been allowed due to the decline in deer population after the American Revolution. But states are relaxing those restrictions as the populations have recovered, so deer meat may be making it's way to the stores and restaurants.

As a rule, one can "field shoot" a deer but not a cow. Cows and the like are normally killed at an abattoir.

I didn’t realize selling wild game was illegal. I have two neighbors who raise deer (maybe that is why it is not wild), and sell to big game preserves out west. They guarantee that you will see deer (they used to guarantee you would Bag a 5 pointer or more, but people couldn’t shoot).

It is not illegal in Scotland where Venison is normally marked up as "field shoot": wild animals are said to be the best meat. However, there are a lot of rules about it. In order to maintain a healthy and sustainable population of 600 red and fallow deer of mixed ages and sexes in Richmond Park, the female deer are selectively culled in November and the male deer are selectively culled in February.

One of my favorite memories of time spent in the southern states was driving the back roads of Georgia while stationed there. Often folks would take scrap plywood and put up signs for roadside stands selling "Pork Skins" or "Boiled Peanuts" or "Hand Pies." On one particularly desolate road I saw a beat up hunk of wood. Corners chewed up, and hand painted on it was "Meat Skins."

I did not stop to find out what kind of meat....

Yeah, it looks like crap to me, too. But so does what it's replacing. Either will make a meal, but I don't think anyone on a steady diet of either is going to be beating the actuarial tables.

By the way grill was mentioned a couple of times. B.K. does not grill anything. The burgers are all flame broiled. French Fries, Fish Chicken do have their own vats but if it is a very busy time period i.e. busy holiday. Depending sometimes all of the vats are used for everything fish chicken, fries and even the tacos when B.K. has them ever so often. I worked at a B.K. I know
