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.

    Bill endorses it? I’m out.

  • @scottmcloughlin4371 says:

    Sound counsel. *Never eat or drink any “TV brand” foods or beverages.* Skip all of that. Categorically. The road to better food habits starts with that big first step.

    • @joegt123 says:

      Not universally true. Daisy is a pretty good brand for sour cream and cottage cheese. There’s a lot of name brands that have good ingredients.

  • @jimscarnivorekitchen4731 says:

    The ingredients in this crap are absolutely disgusting.

  • @Meisterling says:

    I can’t even get my coworker to stop buying margarine. Some people just cannot be helped. I feel bad for them.

    I’ve heard that cattle turn deserts into pasture

    It’s all about controlling people plain and simple.

    I threw an impossible burger to a wolf once, he sniffed and wouldn’t touch it! That told me everything I needed to know about that garbage.

  • @MarieWilliams027 says:

    Their products are getting creppier while their ways to elaborate is looking so desperate nowadays 😅. Thanks for your continuous support, Dr Berg 😊❤

  • @nevastrong2850 says:

    1:46 would be interesting to see if BillyBoy hired people from the FDA to fast-track the 28-day loophole to get it approved?

  • @whoknows8223 says:

    When people try to argue about meat not being healthy/suitable for humans I always remember them of our ancestors who were hunting and eating meat long before agriculture etc started 😉

  • @GraphicJ says:

    Bill needs to be arrested not only for his fake and attrocious meat, but many, many other things.

  • @davidmichaels299 says:

    I recently complained about the fear porn, and while I still feel that there is too much negativity, here is an example of how your detailed breakdown of all the “negative aspects” can be informative to many. While I understand the universe’s infinity and amazing systems, my guess is that most people do not. Humanity does not have the brain power to ask the right question to even be in the game of saving anything. Another factor that people likely do not grasp is the fact that we are in the end stages of an ICE AGE. Ice are bad for life. Less than 10,000 years ago, there were mammoths in America. During most periods in Earth’s history, there were higher amounts of both oxygen and CO2. My understanding is that when these numbers go up, the biomass of the entire planet increases. The optimal atmospheric Earth conditions, which facilitated the growth of large plants and animals during periods like the Carboniferous, are often referred to as “hyperoxic conditions.” During extended periods like the Carboniferous Period, for instance, not only did atmospheric oxygen levels rise to around 35%, significantly higher than today’s 21%, but atmospheric CO2 levels were also relatively high, ranging from 3000 to 4000 parts per million (ppm), compared to around 415 ppm today. Red woods would have been consider shrubs with forest of mile tall tree. 100 ton land animals. These elevated CO2 levels contributed to warmer global temperatures and supported the growth of extensive forests, which eventually became coal deposits as they were buried and compressed over millions of years. I am sure those massive dino shits produced huge fruits for whoever was running the place then. The point is, increased CO2 grows bigger plants, which in turn produce more oxygen, leading to a better and more stable biosphere. Furthermore, the Earth is recovering from an ice age, and in fact, we have relatively low CO2 and oxygen levels compared to much of Earth’s history, when life was thriving. Lastly, the Milankovitch cycles, first proposed by Serbian geophysicist Milutin Milankovitch in the early 20th century and developed in the 1920s and 1930s, have been known for 100 years to be the cause of Earth’s warming and cooling. These cycles describe variations in Earth’s orbit, axial tilt, and precession, influencing climate patterns over long periods of time which is we have climate change, not cows, not man. in fact life is anti-entropic . So basically the same mis-information which dominates corporate food producers are also advising humanity on how to save the planet.

    I’ve been a vegitarian for over 35 years. I have no desire to even try any of these artificial meat substitutes. My wife eats meat and I would not ever suggest she switches to processed junk food like fake meats.

    • @djkenny1202 says:

      Exactly. We can just eat real food. I’m not being pushed by meat industry or people with special interests for themselves, or fake meat.

    • @suchitraadhikari says:

      Exactly… i have no desire to eat… infact i feel inspired to go vegan sometimes…

  • @joanl.7543 says:

    Overeating and food waste are bigger concerns anyway. How about the waste connected with medically treating and caring for people who could be healthier if they didn’t eat junk food?

  • @terranborn56 says:

    In addition to meat, virtually the entire cow is used for other products.. example..Cow leather is still the most durable material for clothing and furniture, sporting equipment…and over the lifetime of the product, when it breaks down, it decays naturally. Unlike manmade fabrics which contribute to plastic pollution.

  • @alleyway3215 says:

    I’m glad you made this video. I was plant-based for about seven years. Now, I’m eating mostly meat plus candida diet foods such as deep greens, real cheese, plain kefir, etc. I love bread and grains, but I do very little of it because every time I eat, my sinuses act up.

  • @a.williams45 says:

    It’s astonishing how BG is profoundly “concerned and devotional in helping humanity”. Thanks for raising so much needed awareness in this world, Dr Berg 🙏🏻

  • @HarryWebb46 says:

    Thank you Dr. Berg for making this valid point that have protested for the last 5 years!
    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!

  • @Magneticlaw says:

    Someone had a great idea: they would spend the night in an enclosed garage with a cow, and Bill spends the night in a garage with a running car, as an experiment to see which one produces more pollution……
