The World’s First Plant Based Egg Is Putting The Egg Industry In A Panic

Published

on

Over the past few decades, we have really been able to see the damage that we have been causing to ourselves, the environment and obviously the countless animals that are slaughtered every single day, solely for us to consume. It is becoming clear to many that we cannot continue in this way. There have been many people that have decided to give up eating animals entirely and have switched to a plant-based diet. A new study recently came out entitled Bacon, Hot Dogs And Processed Meats Are Carcinogenic & Cause Cancer, Says WHO.

However, there is a lot of conflicting information out there over whether or not a plant-based diet is better, or if you do need meat and other animal products to thrive. I think one thing is clear, if anything at all, people should be eating way less meat. We do not need to eat meat with every meal and our portions could be a whole lot smaller when we do. Unfortunately some people, just simply enjoy meat way too much to even consider quitting or cutting back as an option. But, here’s a question: if you could find an alternative that tasted, looked, felt, smelled and cooked just like real meat or other animal products and was a bit cheaper and healthier for you, would you choose that instead?

 Amazing Egg Free Alternatives That Are Making Headlines

Hampton Creek is a company based out of San Francisco that has recently found huge success with their plant-based products like “Just Mayo” and “Just Cookie Dough” that utilize plant proteins in place of eggs. They are currently working on a plant-based scrambled egg alternative, even though this is a bit tougher to achieve. “It is much easier to create a cookie dough without an egg than it is to create a scrambled egg without an egg.”

According to the firm’s boss, Josh Tetrick, “Change happens by making something so delicious and so affordable, everyone chooses it.”

The main goal of Hampton Creek is it to create delicious, healthy, sustainable, economically better alternatives to various animal products that are on the market today.

Threatening The Current System?

Some companies are naturally, feeling very threatened by this company. Former American Egg Board CEO, JoAnne Ivy has stepped down early, according to the Associated Press, after trying to convince the major US grocery chain Whole Foods to take Just Mayo off of their shelves.

Just last year consumer goods giant Unilever, sued Hampton Creek with the claim that they should not be allowed to call their product “mayo” because it does not contain eggs. Unilever also complained that the plant-based product had taken market share away from its well-known brand Hellmann’s, which is made with eggs. Andrew Zimmern, a celebrity chef who had preferred Just Mayo over Hellmann’s in a blind taste-test, even started an online petition to get Unilever to drop the lawsuit. It managed to gather over 100,000 signatures!

Completely Realistic Meat Alternative? Enter “Beyond Meat”

Beyond Meat is brand of alternative meat products, made from plants, that provides you with the same level of meaty goodness that you would expect from a burger, chicken breast or meatball, but without the same repercussions. Apparently these burgers sizzle and sweat just like the real deal. The company’s CEO, Ethan Brown, says: “We’re smart enough now to understand the architecture and composition of a piece of muscle.” In understanding this, they have the knowledge that it takes to make a simulated meat product that still has that fleshy quality to it. Beyond Meat makes several products including: Beast Burgers, Beyond Chicken Strips, Homestyle Tenders, Feisty Crumble and Italian Meatballs.

Last year an incidence occurred where several Whole Foods Market stores mislabeled their “chik’n” (mock chicken) salads with having real chicken and vice versa. Reportedly, not one customer complained and as far as Whole Foods employees not one could even tell the difference. This really shows how far we have come with the evolution of “fake meat” products. If only there was a way to make the term “plant-based protein” sound more appealing…

What Are They Made Of?

Many of the artificial meat products that are available on the market today aren’t the healthiest things for you to consume. It may be safe to say that some of these products are even worse than some meat products as they are overly processed and loaded with sodium, sugars and other preservatives.

An important tip to remember is, when choosing alternative meat products be sure to thoroughly read the ingredients. If you don’t know what something is, be sure to look it up to see for yourself! If we aren’t buying things loaded with chemicals and preservatives, companies will have no choice but to stop selling them. Here is the mission statement of Beyond Meat:

We believe there is a better way to feed the planet. Our mission is to create mass-market solutions that perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein. We are dedicated to improving human health, positively impacting climate change, conserving natural resources and respecting animal welfare. At Beyond Meat, we want to make the world a better place and we’re starting one delicious meal at a time.

According to their website, Beast Burgers are a unique blend that is loaded with antioxidants, iron calcium, vitamins B6, B12, D, DHA and ALA Omega 3’s. The beast burger is soy free, gluten free and Non-GMO. Check out their website for more information about their game changing products!

Final Thoughts

When you think about it, there are actually so many alternatives to meat that are so readily available to us, it’s surprising that people are still eating as much factory farmed meat as they are. It’s true that many people are disconnected from what is really going on behind factory farm doors, but I strongly believe that if anyone had to perform those same atrocities themselves on those mass produced animals, they likely would give up meat completely. Come to think of it, I don’t know anyone who actually believes that factory farming is completely okay to begin with. To learn more about factory farming click here.

This brings me back to my original question, if there were tasty, safe, ethical, sustainable, economical alternatives to animals and animal products available to you, why wouldn’t you eat them?

Much Love

Breaking news out of Toronto as celebrations were taking place to mark the NBA championship the Toronto Raptors won last week. Shots have been fired during the Raptors parade causing panic which sparked a stampede of people leaving the area. Some people reported being trampled during the panic.

So far, 2 people have been arrested and police say 2 people have suffered injuries, but they are not life-threatening.

As we know more we will report, but this will surely spark some sort of ‘gun regulation’ discussion.

Videos below show scenes of what happened in Toronto.

WHAT?! Marineland Is Officially Exempt From Canada’s Ban On Whale & Dolphin Captivity

Published

on

Image: 123RF

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently passed a bill that bans the capture and captivity of whales and dolphins. Marineland, a huge whale/dolphin entertainment park, has been exempted from the law that makes it illegal to do so.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives human beings the right to hold such majestic, innocent, benevolent and intelligent animals captive? What gives them the right to separate them from their families? Why do we treat other beings on Earth the way we do?

Animal captivity is extremely cruel and heartbreaking. Imagine what another intelligent, benevolent race would think if they came across our planet and observed what we do. My guess is that they’d be terrified to attempt to interact with us simply based on how we treat other sentient, benevolent beings on this planet.

Canada recently passed a legislation that completely bans keeping whales, dolphins and porpoises in captivity for entertainment, trade, possession, capture and breeding. The bill (S-203) is also known as the “Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act,” and it was approved by the House of Commons after they voted in favour of the bill, which was first introduced in 2015.

The only time capture is permitted in Canada is for rescue purposes or, unfortunately, for scientific purposes.

According to Green Party Leader MP Elizabeth May, “Canadians have been clear, they want the cruel practice of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity to end… With the passage of Bill S-203, we have ensured that this will happen.”

More than 20 marine scientists and stakeholder organizations endorsed the bill, which quite frankly should have happened long ago. These beings, or any beings for that matter, do not belong in tanks where they are constantly suffering. These are extremely emotional, social, empathetic and brilliant beings. What we’ve done to them and continue to do to them is beyond horrid, to be blunt.

This bill was supposed to phase out this type of captivity in Canada, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, as Marineland Canada’s whales will remain at the park following the page of S-203. Already captive whales will remain in captivity, which means approximately 60 animals will live out their entire lives at Marineland and at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Canadian law now states that it’s a criminal offence, as it should be, to keep a cetacean in captivity, but it looks like Marineland Canada has been exempted from this. It does not seem, however, that they can bring more animals into the park, but they’ll more than likely begin breeding programs to keep their business going for as long as they can.

According to Marie Holer, a representative from Marineland Canada:

We’ve been working to evolve Marineland for over a year and have made many positive changes to the park, including the new educational presentation on marine mammals, the introduction of the Marineland Express and our Polar Splash pad that will open in July. Since opening day, we’ve seen our largest crowds in years and are thrilled that so many people support us in our work. We’re looking forward to enhancing our education, conservation and research focus in the short term to highlight our commitment to marine mammals.”

Is this truly a good step? As long as these animals are in captivity, there can be no care given to these animals. Why do we as human beings feel we can imprison animals like this is simply for entertainment? It feels heartbreaking, confusing, and makes deeply question the state of our connection to wildlife.

Have we really become that disconnected from life?

It’s not all bleak though! Things are obviously improving, and that’s become quite evident thanks to the vast amount of activism over the years that has finally resulted in the passing of the legislation mentioned in this article, but we still have a long way to go.

Remember, these animals have never really shown any type of aggression towards humans, except in captivity.

The Takeaway

Why do human beings go to the circus? Why do they go to places like Marineland? Is it because human beings are terrible? No. It’s simply because many of us have been desensitized and have not quite questioned this in many ways. Which is OK! That’s part of the process. When it comes to animal captivity, mass marketing and scientific justifications have allowed our minds to be manipulated. They’ve made us think that animal captivity is okay, when clearly we would not like to be confined against our will, so why do it to others?

I believe that we’re all born as extremely understanding beings, and that humans are a very empathetic race. I believe that our feelings and our ability to experience empathy are what makes us special. I also believe that these traits and characteristics left us for a while, but they are now returning and we are beginning to “think” from our hearts again.

This is why awareness regarding animal captivity has increased and will continue to increase around the globe until it is completely banned everywhere, or until people simply stop showing up to these places and providing them with profits.

Video: The Most Significant Leak About Extraterrestrial Craft Just Went Public

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A recently leaked document has exposed notes taken by legendary scientist Dr. Eric Davis during a meeting he had Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson, who was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, regarding extraterrestrial space craft.

  • Reflect On:

    UFOs used to be a conspiracy, now they are quite mainstream and their existence is backed by tremendous amounts of evidence. The next question is, where are they from, and who made them? Will this information be suppressed too?

A quote I love to use in many of my articles comes from Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell. He said, “yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered.” (source)

The thought that governments and/or rogue agencies around the world have been involved in taking down and even possibly revere engineering possible extraterrestrial craft is nothing new. Available to the public are statements from the highest ranking positions within government and the military, and there are also declassified documents that hint toward the same idea.

For example, former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer once told the public that the protocol with regards to UFOs was to “shoot first and ask questions after.” Dr. David Clarke, an investigative journalist, reader and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University in England who was also the curator for The National Archives UFO project from 2008–13 uncovered documents showing that the Royal Air Force was desperate to capture one of these UFOs and reverse engineer it. You can see those and read more about it here.

Most Significant Leak?

Check out our video segment on this new leak, or read more below.

More recently, what some are calling the most significant leak in UFO history has been made public – and it may be one of the strongest documents linking UFOs to extraterrestrials.

The document goes into detail about a meeting that was had between Dr. Eric Davis, and Vice Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson. Who is Eric Davis? He is a very well known scientist, and quite the legend. For many years he was a member of the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS)(Owned by Robert Bigelow), the Chief Science Officer of EarthTech Int’l, Inc. and the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin in Austin, Texas; and he is the Owner/Chief Executive/Chief Scientist of Warp Drive Metrics who consults and contracts for the Department of Defense. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Early Universe, Cosmology and Strings Group at the Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research at Baylor University in Waco, TX.

Admiral Thomas Ray Wilson was the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 1999 to July 2002, prior to that he was the Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The document is in the form of notes that were written by Davis after their meeting that took place in 2002, regarding a series of events that took place during the spring of 1997, when Wilson was Deputy Director of Intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Since the leak of this document, there has been no denial publicly by Davis regarding the authenticity of these documents, and the focal point of the document is about a meeting (and what happened after that meeting) that took place in 1997 between UFO researcher Dr. Steven Greer, Admiral Wilson, Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) and other high ranking individuals within the military. This meeting was spoken about by Dr. Greer and Dr. Mitchell nearly four years prior to the leak of these documents, so it’s all very interesting. In the episode, we actually play footage of Mitchell confirming and talking about this meeting as well as Greer.

The documents point towards a program that involves the crash retrieval of extraterrestrial craft, that are “not made of this earth, not made by man.”

You can view the entire document here.

if you missed the video embed above of myself and Joe Martino having a discussion about these documents in detail, you can watch it here.

The Takeaway

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations.” – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The fact that we are not alone has huge implications from science to technology, to history and possible metaphysical/spiritual implications as well. It really opens up Pandora’s Box, and it is one out of many examples that are allowing us to see how humanity has been conditioned to think a certain way, limit our reality, despite all of the evidence, that conflicts with long held belief systems.

At the end of the day, the idea that there are other highly advanced, intelligent lifeforms in the universe, or multiverse, and possibly other dimensions that are and have been visiting our planet, and others, for a very long time is most likely just the very tip of the ice-berg.

This is not a new discovery. We have had this type of knowledge of UFOs and ETs for a very long time, culture and elites have simply suppressed this knowing.
