There is a dirty little secret behind the plant-based products being sold to the public as "a healthier alternative to meat".
Recent research has shown that Impossible meat products contain cancer-causing glyphosate. That's right, the main ingredient found in Monsanto's weed killer Roundup. This deadly chemical has been shown to cause multiple myeloma, leukemia, sperm damage, infertility, kidney damage, autism, endocrine disruption, DNA damage and birth defects.
The levels of glyphosate detected in the Impossible Meats by Health Research Institute Laboratories was 11.3 ppb (parts per billion). This may not seem like much, but when you consider that only 0.1 ppb of glyphosate has been shown to alter the genetic function of over 4000 genes in the liver and kidneys and causes severe organ damage, it's pretty significant.
But that's not all.
Impossible Foods' ‘Impossible Burger’ has a massive 44mg (milligrams) of estrogens Compared to regular burger, which contains an average of 2.5ng (nanograms) of Estrogen. This means that Impossible meat has 18 million times as much Estrogen as a regular meat!
The significance of this is that, not only can Impossible meat cause Estrogen dominance in women, leading to the development of Ovarian cysts, Uterine fibroids and Endometriosis, it may also cause men to grow breasts if eaten in sufficient quantities.
Oh, and the chemical process used to make the Impossible Burger look like meat involves genetically splicing a soybean and yeast, so Impossible Meat is actually a genetically modified organism (GMO).
In short, the Impossible Burger is a genetically modified organism filled with Estrogen and cancer-causing glyphosate.
This is Franken-Food at its very worst. Don't eat it. Ever.
