Orwellian Frankenburger is "Impossibly" good (NOT!)..Have you heard about the "Impossible burger" being rolled out as the savior to our planet's needs for consuming less meat by adopting more plant based diets? Well it is chocked full of GMO soy and genetically modified heme molecules to make you think it is meat. It has a high fat concentrate too. It is impossibly fake and bad food!
