Feature: Petri Dish “Meat”

Dear brothers and sisters,

Ronnie Cummins with the Organic Consumers Association tells us,“Industrialized farming is responsible for a large share of today’s air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, rising carbon emissions and the depletion, erosion and poisoning of soils.”

Moreover factory farming is responsible for the raising of animals in unspeakably atrocious conditions. There is no precedent in history for “contained animal feeding operations” where animals are crowded together in filth and fetid air.

There are those who propose that the growing of meat in laboratories would be a solution. We believe this is woefully misguided. In our opinion, anyone who believes that genetically engineered “meat” grown in sea of chemicals will do them wonders is laboring under a delusion.

We feel privileged to present to you a magnificent article by Dr. Mercola on artificial meat. He is a tireless champion of your good health and nutrition. We invite you to visit his website.

We also want to call to your attention to these two fine articles:-

Ditching Nature in Favor of Fake Food Is Not the Solution to Destructive Factory Farming

Impossible Burger and the Road to Consumer Distrust

Please accept our best wishes to you and family for a healthful and vibrantly alive midsummer,

Ditching Nature in Favor of Fake Food Is Not the Solution to Destructive Factory Farming

by Dr. Mercola


Industrial agriculture is one of the most unsustainable practices of modern civilization. The “bigger is better” food system has reached a point where its real costs have become readily apparent. Like water running down an open drain, the earth’s natural resources are disappearing quickly, as industrialized farming drives air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, rising carbon emissions and the depletion, erosion and poisoning of soils.

The long-term answer, however, lies in the transition to sustainable, regenerative, chemical-free farming practices, not in the creation of food manufacturing techniques that replace farms with chemistry labs, which is the “environmentally friendly” alternative envisioned by biotech startups and its chemists.

The conventional meat industry in particular has been shown to have a deleterious influence on our environment and climate, giving rise to a number of efforts to bring animal replacement products to market. Impossible Foods and its meatless, “bleeding” burger2,3,4,5 is one among several such inventions, and it’s a perfect example of an answer that may well create more hazards than it solves.

Meatless ‘Bleeding’ Burger — Epitome of Fake Food

Contrary to lab grown meat,6 the meat substitute created by Impossible Foods contains a mix of wheat, coconut oil, potatoes and “heme,” the latter of which is derived from genetically engineered (GE) yeast. Impossible Foods was founded in 2011 by Pat Brown, a Stanford University chemist.

A primary ingredient in the Impossible Burger is GE soy leghemoglobin, which releases a heme-like protein when broken down. This protein is what gives the plant-based patty its meatlike look, taste and texture, and makes the patty “bleed” when cooked.

Absolut Honey – Alive 11oz squares


“Deliciousness itself,” as Mark Twain said about cherimoya. For culinary adventurers who demand the ultimate in aliveness. An elegant natural confection. We are delighted to say that Absolut Honey is back. This is honeycomb filled with honey just as the bees made it. A single cell of honeycomb is filled with the concentrated nectar of innumerable flowers. What could be more alive?

The bees are cared for with loving devotion by Walt Broughton and his sons Abram, Luke and Jeb. Together they have in excess of ten decades of being with the bees.

Honeycomb is completely edible. Many aver that honey tastes especially alive when eaten straight from the comb. It is chewy, pleasantly sweet,fresh and vital. The wax cells of honeycomb are both edible and beneficial because they contain natural vitamin A as well as roughage. For an ecstatic taste spread on a slice of apple that has first been spread with a layer of tahini or almond butter. With cheeses, fruit, and edible flowers it is a gorgeous and delicious spread.

“Preppers” and “survivalists” please note:- the shelf life of honey is 4000 years.
