The twit activist at his SC rally, reading straight from her Climate Nexus script, noted Germany's "meat tax," as a way to nudge Americans away from meat.

The two fatties sitting next to the activist didn't look thrilled, but socialist parasite, Bernie, said we should look at all of those things (that, along with the gubment telling us to set our evening A/C at 82°, is ALL part of the New Green Deal, folks).

The control freaks strike again!

He doesn't need to raise taxes; just eliminate the $38 billion in annual subsidies for meat and dairy. Fruits and veggies only get a tiny of that.

I would rather eat meat and have cows born and raised and live than never seeing a cow again.

Plant based diets are any more good for you, on a nutrition level.

Everyone is so excited about the new meatless meat but when you think about the processing it takes to make something look and taste like something else is that something you want to put in your body?





Has anyone consulted the food scientist Michelle Obama? She did amazing things for school cafeterias across the country..... NOT... I wonder how she feels about the meatless meat movement??



Then again I really don't care.

I can see it now: the cartels smuggling ribeyes and baby back ribs. Truckers bootlegging beef, lamb and pork from the Rio Grande.

The meatless patties are processed which is the downside, but overall they are still better than red meat because you cut out the animal fats. Don’t forget that heart disease is the number one killer of Americans and a diet high in saturated fats is a contributor.

Bernie obviously did not get the memo...

'I will not endorse that': The CEO of Whole Foods says eating plant-based 'meats' is unhealthy

Here's the link... my links are not working properly

https://markets.businessinsider.com/...9-8-1028481335

John Mackey told CNBC on Wednesday that plant-based meat substitutes are good for the environment but not for your health, echoing concerns that have been raised by dieticians and nutritionists in recent weeks.

"If you look at the ingredients, they are super-highly processed foods," Mackey told CNBC. "I don't think eating highly processed foods is healthy. I think people thrive on eating whole foods."

He added: "As for health, I will not endorse that, and that is about as big a criticism that I will do in public."

...
As plant-based-meat options have become more widely available in recent months, critics have begun to question the health benefits of these products. Many of the plant-based meat alternatives are highly processed and include coconut oil, an ingredient known to have loads of saturated fat.

I'll stick with meat.

I question the nutritional value of food manipulated and processed over and over again.

There's some really convoluted logic in that. Love it!
