'Climate-anxious media outlets are raving about a new artificial beef product known as “Impossible Burger” that, according to the company that manufactures it, has an 89 percent smaller “carbon footprint” than real beef. But are genetically-modified (GMO) soybeans that have been sprayed with toxic glyphosate (Roundup) really environmentally-friendly?
The reason we ask is this important question is because, in the “What are the Ingredients?” section of the Impossible Foods website, we see that the primary ingredient in Impossible Burger, besides water, is soy protein concentrate, a highly-refined, food-like substance derived from transgenic soybeans that, throughout their growing cycle, are drenched with a known cancer-causing herbicide. And further down on the ingredients list is soy protein isolate, which is just more of the same.
Now, we don’t know about you guys, but it seems just a tad bit deceptive to market this meat-alternative food product that’s made mostly from chemical-laden, laboratory-grown soybeans – most-likely owned and licensed by Monsanto, the world’s most evil corporation – as being “good” for the environment. There are many reasons why Impossible Foods isn’t being honest with its claims towards this end, not the least of which is the fact that GMO soybeans, which are more than likely the kind used in Impossible Burger, accumulate far more toxic glyphosate herbicide inside each bean than their non-GMO and organic counterparts.
We also know from science that Roundup, the herbicide that Monsanto created specifically to grow the types of GMO soybeans found in Impossible Burger, accumulates all throughout the environment as well, including in rivers, lakes, rainwater, and even the air that we all breathe.'
