For more than 22 years I have been talking about how the beef industry makes you fat and sick. When eating out, one of my go-to meals is a veggie burger – especially if the restaurant made it with lentils or black beans and no cheese.
The meat industry will continue to be successful at convincing the government to help it continue to sell its products to consumers. They have the money to line politicians pockets and they will continue to do so.
So, what can we do? Vote with your wallet! Stop buying meat an dairy products. Consumers do have a powerful and very effective voice. When we stop buying products the profits disappear and then the product disappears.
In recent months, the Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger have been appearing on more menus. I have tried them both. They both have a cow taste about them that weirded me out.
There are lots of reasons to celebrate the movement away from beef to plant-based alternatives. Not only does the beef industry make you fat and sick, it is also destroying our environment.
But, please, don’t be fooled. The Impossible Burger and the Beyond Burger are not healthy alternatives. Both Dr. John McDougall and Jeff Novick, RD, have pointed out that they are both CRAP (Calorie Rich & Processed Foods).

The bond with beef
Americans love their beef, and there is no sign of a slowdown in consumption. In 2017, Americans consumed about 12 million metric tons (26 billion pounds) of beef, an 8 percent increase from the approximately 11 million metric tons (24 billion pounds) consumed in 1990.
The bond with beef is preserved by a huge industry marketing machine and fully supported by politicians at all levels. The federal government directly encourages Americans to consume large amounts of beef through a system called the “beef checkoff program,” supervised by the Agriculture Department. And this year, lawmakers in Nebraska will consider legislation restricting the label of “meat” to only animal products, making it a crime to label plant-based foods as meat.
Missouri passed such a law in August, and Wyoming, Tennessee and Virginia are considering similar regulations. Such laws would stymie alternative meat companies’ plans to start labeling their products as “clean meat.”
