This is the CEO of JUST EGG (and GOOD Meat), Josh Tetrick. I make funny memes about him and his bizarre efforts to get us to eat mung-bean-and-canola slop instead of eggs, and lab-grown tumours instead of chicken breast. But did you know... ๐Ÿ‘‡ Image That before JUST was JUST, it was Hampton Creek? The company was forced to rebrand after an embarrassing series of scandals.

Hampton Creek (HC) was founded by Tetrick and his childhood friend Josh Balk, in LA in 2011, before moving to Tetrick's garage in San Francisco in 2012. Image

Nice Vice hitpiece video just dropped about how fertility decline is a conspiracy theory. Of course it features Tucker and the End of Men. The video's every bit as bad as you'd expect from this totally failing media company. ๐Ÿ‘‡

The worst thing about the video is the "big brain" conclusion: we (RWBBs etc.) are making testosterone and fertility decline into a "culture war issue" to distract from the fact that it's fundamentally an environmental issue. We're running cover for corporations. Really.

It's unfortunate that Cate Shanahan, who wrote Deep Nutrition, a book that advocates "ancestral eating" with reference to the work of the great Weston Price, is now selling "cultured oil", a product that couldn't be further from the fats our ancestors ate. ๐Ÿ‘‡ In case you didn't know, Zero Acre Farms is a startup with big backing, including Virgin's Richard Branson and cricket-chomper Robert Downey Jr. It's another one of those "foods of the future" you keep hearing about, like lab-grown cancer... I mean, "cultured meat". ImageImage

It's nice to see that, once again, the FDA is putting American's health first by approving the sale of "meat" made with immortalised cell lines, which are functionally indistinguishable from tumours. There is ZERO long-term safety data on consumption of tumours. ๐Ÿ‘‡ If you want to know more about immortalised cell lines, and why we have good reason to believe they're not safe to eat, check out this thread.

The fact that we are going to miss our climate targets is now an essential part of the narrative and justification for massive social and economic change, especially the "climate migrant" scenario, which I've written about a number of times. ๐Ÿ‘‡ "Catastrophic" global warming is now inevitable, and that means that we must act, right now, to prevent as much harm as possible to the population of the Third World, who will be most affected by climate change.

Meta-analyses like this one which claim that soy consumption has no effect on reproductive function in men are always short term. The average study length for this meta-analysis is just 74 days. Looking at evidence of longer term consumption, we see a very different picture. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Short duration of clinical studies is their main weakness. When we get into anecdotal case studies of longer term consumption, we see results like in the case below (2 years of soy products): low testosterone and loss of libido.

The supposed "cholesterol paradox" is nothing of the sort, and it's amazing people still talk of such a thing. Let's talk about the famous Minnesota study on heart health, otherwise known as the Minnesota Coronary Experiment. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Between 1968 and 1973, a double-blind randomised controlled trial of 9423 people took place in various institutions in Minnesota. The aim was to investigate whether reductions in cholesterol, through replacement of "unhealthy" saturated fat with "healthy" vegetable oil...

There's no such thing as free pleasure: artificial sweeteners have all sorts of costs you might not be aware of. In fact, they may even be worse than the sugars they replace. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Study 1: Saccharine, sucralose and aspartame make gut bacteria infectious, causing them to invade and kill cells of the gut-wall lining.

When I tweeted about lab-grown meat made with immortalised cell lines being functionally the same as cancer, many asked whether eating it could give you cancer. Here's a little science on the matter. ๐Ÿ‘‡ The truth is, we don't fully know whether eating large quantities of cancer is a good idea, since -- funnily enough -- humans have never done that. We do know a number of things that should give us serious pause for thought though. Here are three papers of note.

Guess what? The smell of a particular kind of women's perfume is a decent test booster, according to scientists from Japan. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Okay, the study is small-scale, but still. Researchers at Nara University tested the hormonal responses of a small group of men and women to different fragrances. They tested four fragrances: rose, floral, musk and a control (no fragrance).

The question of whether eating raw eggs gives you a biotin deficiency never seems to go away, so I thought I'd address it in detail in a thread. The TL;DR? Don't believe what every twink tells you. ๐Ÿ‘‡ First here's what a biotin deficiency actually looks like.

This is a baby with biotin deficiency. Yes, it's that bad. Baby may have inherited the deficiency (i.e. a genetic predisposition) or acquired it through tube-feeding.

The image to the right lists the common features.

PFAS are one of the principal chemicals discussed in Tucker Carlson's doc, The End of Men. PFAS have gender-bending effects, but they also make you fat, as the following study shows. ๐Ÿ‘‡ If you don't know anything about PFAS, read this primer.

Liberal advocates of mass immigration want you to believe that nothing can be done about it, as this new cartoon of British PM Rishi Sunak as King Canute suggests (with great subtlety). But something decisive could very easily be done about it. Look at Hungary, for instance. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Image Truth is, we are being prepared for mass immigration that will dwarf anything we've seen before. This is so-called "climate migration". The idea is simple: billions of people are going to be forced, by climate change, to migrate to the West. Here's Al Gore at Davos this year.

In order for this to happen, lab-grown meat would have to overcome formidable obstacles, not least of all public revulsion at the idea of eating tumours, since that's what immortalised cell lines are. Personally, I don't see it happening. I've talked a lot about this recently. The truth is, this is a real problem for lab-grown meat makers. They just don't want to talk about it (hence why I'm now blocked by JUST Egg and GOOD Meat).

Plants may not get the flu, but lab-grown meat, which Josh also produces (GOOD Meat) is a potential breeding ground for new and extremely dangerous zoonotic diseases. ๐Ÿ‘‡ GOOD Meat's lab-grown meat is made with immortalised animal cell lines, which are functionally indistinguishable from cancer.

The good doctor @SBakerMD posted about the link between low cholesterol levels and violence. The link appears to be robust, as the systematic review study on the left shows. The study on the right reveals that low cholesterol is associated with a history of childhood violence. ๐Ÿ‘‡ Particularly interesting is the fact that taking statins, which reduce cholesterol, is associated with increases in aggressive behaviour.

I've been talking a lot recently about immortalised cell lines (ICLs), which are used to produce so-called "lab-grown" meat. ICLS are functionally indistinguishable from cancer, and there are other problems too. ๐Ÿ‘‡ There seems to be some skepticism about the claim ICLs are cancers, so I'm going to let the scientists talk. ICLs are functionally indistinguishable from cancers. Both are immortal and replicate endlessly under the right conditions.

Actually, it's not this simple. Makers of lab-grown meat are caught in a cleft stick at the moment. If they continue, like GOOD Meat, to use immortalised cell lines, they've got an insoluble PR problem on their hands, since their product is indistinguishable from cancer. Do people really want to make cancer a regular part of their diet? Despite assurances from experts, we have no long-term data on regular consumption of cancer. When most people hear that word, they run a mile. This is why smaller lab-grown meat players are using different tech.

In the quoted thread I talked about why advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which processed food is chock full of, are estrogenic. It also seems they make you less strong, according to a very interesting study. Japanese researchers wanted to see whether accumulation of AGEs in the body was associated with strength. They measured AGE levels in the skin and found an inverse association between muscle strength and power and AGE levels. Why though?

Processed food has estrogenic effects when consumed, and it's because of a type of compound you may never have heard of: advanced glycation end-products, or AGEs. ๐Ÿ‘‡ AGEs are produced when proteins and lipids are exposed to sugars, become glycated. This happens to a significant extent during the production of processed foods. They're also produced in the body when blood sugar is elevated for prolonged periods.
