Default Bio-engineered Milk: No Cows Necessary + Other Questionable Foods

Bio-engineered Milk: No Cows Necessary

Excerpt: From Silicon Valley to Switzerland, hundreds of millions of dollars are being pumped into a new technology to produce “real milk” - containing identical casein and whey proteins to the genuine article - but without any humans, cows or other animals involved at all.

A study published by the World Health Organisation just last week involving almost 30,000 children across 16 countries suggested breast-feeding has a “protective effect” in staving off fat tissue. Bottle-fed babies, the study found, are 25pc more likely to end up obese.

Corporate giants such as US-based DowDuPont, BASF, Nestle, as well as start-ups such as Sugarlogix, Gnubiotics Sciences and Jennewein Biotechnologie are busy pouring money into lab research. They are developing products that are very similar to human milk, a complex hybrid of over 1000 proteins and a unique ingredient called human milk oligosaccharide (HMO).



What I find alarming is that all of these foods, vegan, bio-engineered, etc. are all created by mixing ingredients and we don't know what is in them necessarily and yes this can be applied to the meat industry as well (hormones, drugs, etc.).

For example... many food companies get away with not telling the public what ingredients they use. In fact the FDA doesn't know of 1,000 ingredients used in foods today. What are we eating?

I'm not choosing a side, I am choosing total transparency by those who create fake burgers and fake milk and yes... real meat too.



This article about the FDA not knowing is fascinating.

Excerpt: Basically, even though the FDA specifically disapproved of the Impossible Burger’s key ingredient (soy leghemoglobin) for human consumption, expressing concerns that it may be an allergen, it came to light that the FDA’s approval was never even required in the first place, since food manufacturers can self-affirm ingredients as being safe under the agency’s GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) program. According to Pew Charitable Trusts, the FDA is unaware of some 1,000 out of 10,000 ingredients used in food, because companies self-affirmed their safety. Now, since the Impossible Burger hasn’t been recalled and is still being sold, it’s creating alarming awareness that there are many ingredients on the market that the FDA isn’t even aware of.



So ultimately just what is the plan here? To someday ban real meat and supply people with bio-engineered foods and/or foods with ingredients that we don't even know about... all in the name of going "meatless"?

There seems to be a big rush towards this food space. Just a few days ago Beyond Meat went public and it's stock blasted upward well over 200%. That is some major funding for that company.
