I want people to understand that consumers are blindly purchasing foods that they think are healthy

I want people to understand that consumers are blindly purchasing foods that they think are healthy because they associate it with a plant. But once that food has been processed, it doesn’t matter if it came from a plant, or a piece of cardboard, it means the whole food is gone. People who are eating these new vegan or vegetarian products should really educate themselves on how they are manufactured and processed to look like real meat. For example, beyond meat products are made from yellow pea protein isolates, where the yellow pea itself is broken down through various processes. Pea protein doesn’t contain essential fatty acids like seafood and nuts, which are crucial for optimal health and which the body can’t produce on its own, so in actuality it's not a complete protein. Processed soy is particularly bad. Whereas fermented, organic soy in small amounts (like natto) does not pose serious health risks, eating soy protein isolate will definitely take its toll on the body. Some effects of soy include decreased libido, mood swings, depression, and several others. Other ingredients such as refined coconut oil and natural flavours are added to make a cohesive patty that tastes good. Despite what you may think, beyond meat and other immitation meat products are usually not healthy substitutes for meat. That being said, I'm not suggesting meat as an alternative and  processed meat isn't healthy at all. There's is no doubt in my mind that a grass-fed unprocessed piece of beef is healthier then a highly processed fake meat. People choose not to eat meat for ethical reasons but to follow the trend the globalists are pushing isn't wise. It is likely they are going to try and tax meat soon, saying that farming is one of the leading causes of CO2 emmissions. It’s  hard, in fact, to find a tech billionaire who hasn’t invested in a protein alternative that aims to stamp out factory farming such as my favourite lunatic Bill Gates. They want us on processed foods, which destroy our health. Quality healthy foods are always whole foods period. Many foods are promoted as healthy simply because they are "plant based" but are highly processed and loaded with chemicals and even carcinogens. Think twice before getting a plant based burger from Tim Hortons or from any fast food chain espesically. They are not healthy. Do your own research and don't buy into the propoganda. If you don't want meat that's wonderful! It's your choice. But why do you keep eating processed products made to look like animal products? It's ridiculous. If you think eating animals is cruel and unmoral then why would you want to eat processed foods that are made to look just like animals? This is a strange phenomenon that I am seeing. Logically, whole foods are the most natural and least processed. Stick to a whole food based diet for optimum nutrition. Grow your own fruit and vegetables when you can, it's so simple, cheap and yet so rewarding!
