      Interesting. I wouldn’t be eating that thing anyway. I like my meat! 🙂  (The pun not intended, but it made me laugh, and seems appropriate for these boards 😀 )

        I recently read an article of how the Chinese were in awe of the Mongolian fighters because of their strength and endurance. The difference was that the Mongolians were meat eaters and the Chinese were primarily on grain-based diets.

        The amount of estrogen in the Impossible Burger and the lack of real protein should concern all men, especially it they are having T problems.

        Doesn’t concern me. I wouldn’t eat one on a bet.

          Soy has been much maligned in recent years.  However, the sudden phobia about it is unwarranted. East Asians have been eating it in large quantities for thousands of years, and it has yet to do anyone in.  Their women have a low incidence of breast cancer.
           
          “Just six glasses of soy milk per day has enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male. “
          It barely grows boobs on their women :lol:.
           
          At an American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine conference a few years ago they presented findings that soy estrogen has no effect on humans.  Now they are saying that plant estrogens plug into estrogen receptors and have no effect of their own, but they block the human estrogen from plugging into the receptors, so in effect phytoestrogens are estrogen blockers.

            Thank you h52.  I have never put much time into understanding the whole debate.  The GMO world is confusing to me.

              I had one of their old substitute whoppers (made out of beans, maybe?) a while back (or who knows: maybe it’s the same thing and they just re-branded it?) Our DD was “dating” a pescitarian.

              I liked it. (I’m a veggie-phile, though.) I don’t think I’ll try the new one, though, because these days I’m attempting to do whole foods/real food 80% of the time. And in that 20%, there will be an occasional original whopper with cheese, no onion, no lettuce! (Doggone it, now I’m hungry!)
