There have been musings from the World Economic Forum (WEF) about giving insects a role in our food systems as an alternative protein to meat. The WEF boldly tells us that in the future… “meat will be a special treat, not a staple for the good of the environment and our health.”
Claims pushed by the WEF are that consumption of non-meat, alternative protein reduces the risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Alternative protein backed by the WEF and academic intelligentsia include: plant-based alternatives (soy, peas, lentils, beans), tofu, insects (crickets, worms), algae, mycoprotein (filamentous fungus) and cultured meat (clean meat produced by in vitro procedure).
We are further told that consumer interest in alternative protein is increasing in countries with economic wealth. But this is hardly true. Take the case of Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND) — a North American plant-based protein company.
Its share price history likely reveals true consumer interest. It initially listed at $72 USD back in May 2019, hit a high of $239.9 in July 2019 but has been hovering at an uninspiring $24 in June 2022. Why? Consumers may be willing to try alternative protein but are unlikely repeat such purchases and they become increasingly tired of hearing about it.
Soy supposedly represents the most popular and competitively priced type of alternative protein for consumers. It is often claimed that low-fat protein — soy in particular — can improve some cardiovascular disease risk factors. However, the science behind some of these claims was recently evaluated in a National Association of Scholars (NAS) report .
Nutritional epidemiology naively relies on statistical associations to make claims about whether a foodstuff benefits or harms health. The NAS report looked at flimsy science methods so often used in nutritional epidemiology to justify government regulation. It evaluated a meta-analysis of soy protein […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
