Bill Gates says to eat fake beef? We’ll pass.

In a recent MIT interview, Bill Gates recommended that rich countries make the switch to “100% plant-based beef” to combat climate change. And once again, emissions (i.e., cow farts) are to blame.

Few people understand that there is a connection between trends like veganism and socialist agendas where everything we consume is regulated by a government or bureaucratic entity. Whether you realize it or not, support has been growing for plant-based alternatives. In fact, almost every fast-food restaurant is adding veggie patties to their menu as elitist progressives demonize our beloved beef, bacon, eggs and cheese.

For starters, there are too many flaws found in some of these climate change proposals. We’re seeing how green energy initiatives failed Texans in the midst of the recent winter storms. But back at the dinner table, there is not enough known about these beef alternatives and whether we should even be eating them.

Some health experts argue the Impossible Burger and Beyond Beef Burgers aren’t necessarily supposed to be healthier than beef but are greener options to the “gas producing” bovine animals.

What’s present in these patties is said to be worse than sinking your teeth into a 1/2 pound of sirloin. Not only are they heavily processed and full of sodium, they contain coconut oil which is 90 percent saturated fat (more than double of that present in beef fat, though the jury is still out on whether saturated fat is unhealthy.)

When asked about the fake meat alternatives, cardiologist at NYU Langone says he’d prefer the real deal.

From the New York Post:

Dr. Sean Heffron, a cardiologist at NYU Langone, puts it more bluntly.

“I don’t know that it’s a healthier choice than real meat,” says Heffron. “If I was presented the option [of fake or real fried chicken], I would probably eat the real chicken.”

Initially, the heart doctor was curious, in particular, about the new red-meat substitutes. He hasn’t eaten red meat or pork in 25 years, and spends many of his days advising people to cut back on red meat, which has been linked to heart disease and high levels of low-density lipoprotein, known as LDL or the bad cholesterol.

“I’ll be honest,” he says. “I was tempted. But then I read what’s in them.”

Despite concerns about the quality of these veggie burgers and their impact on human health, climate change advocates gather in unison to say “Yeah, let’s forget what’s natural for humans to eat. We have a whole planet to save.”

Nevermind how much it costs in fuel to import all of these foods to these factories year-round and the emissions it takes to transport these goods. Nevermind that soy protein concentrate is the second ingredient found in the Impossible Burger (good information for people trying to avoid this ingredient). But most importantly, forget about your freedom to choose which foods help you thrive. Because there exists a panel of progressives ready to tell you which morals should go in your mouth.
