    "GMO Impossible Burger tests 11x higher for Glyphosate weed killer residue than Beyond Meat burger."

    That alleged study is done by "Mom's across America" which is a fringe anti-gmo conspiracy group who hawks their own quack supplements to purify your gut and all that nonsense.

    But if you want to talk about things that are carcinogenic, raise your hand if you know which part of a beef burger has been labeled "probably carcinogenic" by the World Health Organization?

    Psst.. It's the beef.

    I don't have anything against beef and eat plenty of it myself, but best not to resort to fringe carcinogen scare mongering when beef has its own issues.

    You are resorting to fringe carcinogen scare mongering in response, or defense, of their patty. ;)

    Is the implication that IARC is a fringe group? Certainly their results need to be taken in context, but I think they're a little more on the up and up than a group (Mom's Across America) that proclaims urine and breastmilk are teaming with glyphosate after they did a study that involved getting their own biased audience to mail in their own samples.

    The beyond burgers and sausages sausages are good, haven't has the impossible burger. I highly doubt they were designed to be healthy, so to expect that isn't realistic. The purpose behind them is to offer a burger that is plant based. It is no secret North Americans like burgers.

    Anyone here look into what the cholesterol differences are between beef and plant based burgers?
