This Is How Lies Get Their Start

We have had a couple of years of accusations of “fake news” from one side or the other……and then I read an article that illustrates just how these goddamn lies get started…..

Just this year a new fad has begun with fast food outlets…those plant based burgers…..but there is a side effect…..

Ever hear the term “Man Boobs”?

Amid the growing popularity of the Impossible Burger, Beyond Meat products, and other plant-based meat alternatives, the meat industry has declared war.

Despite coming out with their own competing alternative and plant-based products, various meat industry-backed efforts have claimed that the vegetarian-friendly foods are harmful and “ultra-processed.” They’ve also compared them to dog food.

Now, there’s a new claim: that they’ll make men grow breasts.

As first noted by The Washington Post, an article labeled as “news” in the trade publication Tri-State Livestock News claims that eating Burger King’s Impossible Whopper—a new faux-beef menu item—could cause men to grow breasts.

Author James Stangle, a doctor of veterinary medicine in South Dakota, orders up some sizzling math, hold the evidence. He writes:

There is nothing about this claim that is real….but if it is stated time and time again…..then soon it will become believed….

(I want to see how many actually read the article)

As I stated before……this is how LIES get started!

  1. I’m not reading it all, chuq. 🙂
    Next month, it will be something else, and then something else…
    I’m too old to worry about my boobs now! 🙂
    Only 90 minutes until I open the wine…
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I tried one of the plant based burgers and I found it to be salty and a little on the tough side. I will stick with real meat, thank you.

  3. I know people who work full time and can’t afford meat, and the price will keep going up. More people will be forced to stick to plant food, but they like the taste and texture of meat, as like burgers. Restaurants are competing for business, as are food suppliers That is the future I see. Not optimistic here.
