It's no secret that plant-based meats have been marketed as healthier and more environmentally friendly alternatives to real meat. However, these claims are not entirely accurate.

While plant-based meats contain some nutrients, they simply can’t compare to those found in real meat, such as protein, B vitamins, iron, selenium, and zinc. Plant-based meats may try to replicate these nutrients through added chemicals and synthetic ingredients, but they can never match the natural composition of real meat.

The production process of plant-based meats involves using chemicals and additives that may pose health risks. For example, the Impossible Burger contains yeast that creates a synthetic version of the blood protein heme from soy. This ingredient is classified as a color additive and hasn't been thoroughly tested for safety.

Regarding environmental impact, plant-based meats are often touted as a more sustainable option than real meat. However, they require a lot of resources to produce, including water and land. If we look at California almonds, they use ten times more fresh water than cattle.

On the other hand, real meat production uses resources that would otherwise be wasted. For instance, 85 percent of livestock feed comes from non-human edible materials, including corn stalks, beet pulp, and soybean plants.

Cows play a crucial role in maintaining the health of our land. They can graze on terrain unsuitable for growing crops, and their manure is a natural fertilizer for plants. Removing cows from the equation would negatively impact our food production system. One of the main arguments against real meat is the methane emissions from livestock. When looking at the big picture, these emissions are roughly 2.7 percent, which isn’t significant enough to make a real difference.

These emissions are also part of a natural cycle. Plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in the soil, which is then consumed by livestock and released as methane. This methane eventually breaks down to become carbon dioxide again, completing the cycle.

      Probably even worse than the medical costs is the human and opportunity costs of being seriously overweight. If you can’t move right, you’re restricted with what you can do, including practical things. And if you don’t live your full life span, you deprive people who may really need to have you around. Resource and environment costs matter, but they are only part of the story.

Unlike manmade fabrics which contribute to plastic pollution.

    Some years ago I contacted Alpro complaining about the extra water needed for growing their infinite acres of Almond trees grown across California! They replied saying that only 10% of the extra water was added, needed to complete the growing process. So, no wonder California is almost permanently in drought! Hundreds of thousands of acres of California soaking up the tap water! Utterly unsustainable for a healthy planet. And a healthy body!

      I think this world would benefit a lot from many small local farms with grass fed meat and organic vegetables. I received a package of the Impossible Burger from a local food bank. I did not try them though. I regularly get invited with friends to wait in line at food banks because of being low income and needing help with food, but doing low carb eating has made what I can eat out of a food bank box very limited because a lot of the food they offer is high carb with many additives.
