You'd be better off avoiding all that soy, my friend...

"Phytoestrogens have a similar chemical structure to that of estrogen and may mimic its hormonal actions.

Both soybeans and edamame have been linked to many health benefits and are rich in protein and many vitamins and minerals.

They are also rich in phytoestrogens known as isoflavones."

The beauty of the Beyond Meat burgers is they are basically like ground meat and you can shape them and add what you want to them before frying or grilling them.

As a meat eater I was impressed with how the texture was very similar to a nice cut of beef burger, whereas the other ones I've tried like Morning Star, Boca, Quorn etc... Just didn't have the same mouth feel and are already patty shaped.

I agree, nothing beats a good home burger.

BK just announced its impossible burger's soy meat will be GMO.

I think BK needed the soy for it to stand up to the flame grilling. Also Impossible burger has Soy based Heme in it which some people might take issue with.

Ok good, you don't want to start crying over a semi-sad commercial

Most ex-cons I've bumbed into would seem to boast about how soy burgers were a staple in the diet since the phytoestrogens lowered their testosterone keeping them alittle less violent behind bars but also giving them 'itch teats.


And the end of the day its probably all about selling the cheapest-ingredients veggie burger for maximum added profit from the growing vegetarian niche.

I believe it. Possibly leads to the urge for buttsex, too. I'd rather reach my budget max by buying real meat. And I'm not sure how pure the meat I buy at the grocery store is anymore either. Steaks, pork, and chicken, yes. But the prepackaged hamburger meat, I don't know.

Grind your own or ask the butcher to grind the cuts you pick out yourself. You get a much better burger that way and you control what goes into it.

Back in the 70s and 80s quite a bit of the school lunch beef was soy mixed.
Might explain us Gen Xers.

I envy folks who can stomach animal meats. My parents never ate beef but would gorge on dairy and other mammals.

Agreed once its ground up its impossible to tell whats really in it, whether animals or plants or whatever, ie fetal matter etc

We do our shopping at Kroger. While we usually get the 5 lb roll of hamburger meat (which is what I question), we've been getting the meat they grind up a lot more lately. Once or twice a year they'll have their brisket on sale and you can get a 10 to 20 pound brisket for half price. The first time they had that sale, we bought three of the bigger briskets and my father in law ground it all into hamburger meat. It has enough fat to grind in with the rest of the meat without having to add anymore. That was the best hamburger meat we'd ever had.

Kroger will grind it for you if you ask. At least mine do.
That's the way to do it too, buy bulk on sale and grind grind grind.

Also buying a cow from a farm and splitting among family and friends.

It's the kind they grind and set out.

Eeeeeee... I don't know if I could buy a cow and then have it slaughtered unless an EMP smacked us and we were left to survive on our own. But I have enough land to hunt if that ever happened.

I don't slaughter it myself.

You can call around to farms or even stand alone butchers and ask how much a half a cow costs or whatnot. Many do package deals too which is cheaper than Krogers or Walmart. They will butcher and wrap it for freezing.

A nothing-burger. Which is how would explain this controversy.

something I noticed in kids who eat a lot of mcD, BK, or beef from wherever in US is they get taller, more precocious, promiscuous, then have problems wit drug use, cancer, mental health, etc by their teens than their vegetarian family member counterparts who are generally more graceful in appearance personality and behavior.

i do see alot of teen males are into high protein from beef and work out alot but behind the scenes theyre bi or whatever drama queens anyway moreso than the vegan guys so it makes me wonder what hormones and antibiotics are in the meat that might be worse than phyto this and phyto that? when i worked on a dairy and veal farm the farmer would keep an 'implant' in all his cows ears that releases a steady cocktail mix of testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, bST, and even estrogen hormones in his cows, calves, and young steers that would keep a constant level that within USDA limits for hormones. looking back, that explains to my why nowadays kids are so precocious and so on, at a diabolical level, nowadays.

Personally I blame that danged rock and roll music. But this culture has always promoted size and aggression more than grace and subtlety. Maybe it's good for them. They could win the election.
