But isn’t the planet being destroyed by meat production, hence the need for more plant-based foods like fake meat? Not exactly. Besides the questionable science backing the need to ditch meat in order to stop global warming or whatever, there is no mention made in any of the Impossible Foods puff-pieces or marketing literature about how creating the ingredients used in its products is also harmful to the planet – GMOs, for instance, are a chemical nightmare for soil
Beyond this, Bill Gates, the same man who has repeatedly commented that if more people would get vaccinated it would help reduce the world’s population, is a major financial backer of Impossible Foods. Much of the $182 million in venture capital that was used to jump start the company in 2011, came from Gates, which should have everyone who knows a thing or two about this eugenicist asking the question: Now, why on earth would he support something like this? The answer is certainly not one of helping people gain more nutrition through their diet, that’s for sure.
