People will do whatever it takes when it comes to refuting the terrifying claims of climate change scientists. Burger King recently began selling the “Impossible Whopper” as a way to combat climate change, which is in part caused by our dependence on cattle. Cows, in case you didn’t know, burp and fart methane, which is a greenhouse gas. Cutting our reliance on meat could very much reduce the amount of this gas we put into the atmosphere.
Like clockwork, though, people have found a way to cast doubt on the Impossible Whopper. According to conspiracy theorists, eating too much of the burger will result in bigger boobs — but only if you’re male.
One tweet said: “Healthy young man goes to Burger King, gets pumped with a massive shot of Impossible Whoppers, doesn’t feel good and changes – BREASTS. Many such cases!”
It’s almost like the Twitter user pulled from the exact syntax and diction that Trump uses when he lies about something for no reason.
Another user tweeted: “Sure, let’s turn our boys into girls fast!!! What a great agenda!”
One more wrote: “Social engineering is not enough apparently these days, so let’s do it with the food that we eat!”
Tri-State Livestock News reported on December 20, 2019 that the burgers contain an abundance of estrogen: “There are 1 million nanograms (ng) in one milligram (mg). That means an impossible whopper has 18 million times as much estrogen as a regular whopper. Just six glasses of soy milk per day has enough estrogen to grow boobs in a male.”
One has to wonder if the source of information is reputable, though…After all, Tri-State Livestock News sounds like an organization with a slight bias toward, well, livestock.
And experts say differently as well.
New York University nutrition professor Marion Nestle had this to say: “Asians have been eating soy products for millennia and don’t seem to be any worse for it. They have among the longest lifespans and best health, at least in classic diets.”
Plus, Asian males don’t seem to be growing boobs at a high rate when compared to their Caucasian counterparts, especially here in the United States where obesity rates continue to skyrocket out of control.
Nestle said, “There is a special concern about…men and boys who eat soy products, but again, if you look at populations that eat a lot of soy products, there is no evidence of particular problems. No, they don’t grow breasts.”
And the health benefits surely outweigh the outrageous concerns.
Nestle concluded: “My take on soy products is that they’re foods like any other, and like any other, they should be eaten in moderation.”
