    Hey Mr. fancy pants vegan ceo, what gives you the right to tell other people what to eat? I'm not buying your processed glop,and let me repeat what I've said so many times: "And the more something is processed,the more $$$ companies make and the less value you,the consumer of said product, will get." But of course,it's all about deceiving people to make $$$$$ and ramming your vegan agenda down everyone's throat with a baseball bat.

    What even makes this dude think people would crave this stuff? I want real food and this is not real food. Just another overpriced lump of frankinfood garbage. I suspect this is going to go over about as well as the push to have us all eating bugs did. Remember that?

    And btw,humans are omnaviours, not plant eaters. If we were, plant eaters,which he is hell bent on making us, we would have a gi like a gorilla and the gut bacteria of a gorilla to digest plants.And even gorillas eat insects. Except for Japanese who eat seaweed, (see my link) that's not a thing our gut biome evolved to do.

    There are intrinsic safety issues with food from animals. You can’t make ground beef without faecal bacteria getting into it. It’s part of the process. That carries irreducible food safety hazards which we can readily avoid.

    So can I. It's called "cooking."

    There is no cholesterol [in our burger]

    So what? Eating cholesterol only raises your level about 1% cause your body makes it's own. rolls eyes

    also data suggesting that mammalian meat triggers an inflammatory response in humans

    Sugar and carbs is way worse that red meat in that regard. Your end goal is to stop humans eating all meat cause your a vegan and you won't be happy till everyone is also a vegan. . That's not gonna fly for most of humanity.. You just want to be so rich you can hardly stand it and converting everyone to your product and vegan agenda. This works great for you. It does not work for me.

      You're right. We don't need to go vegan. There is plenty of jungle and forest left to burn down and grow crops to feed and imprison the franken-bred animals we eat. Who really cares about indigenous people or other species anyway? Hopefully meat eating will catch on more in China and India so there are more job opportunities for farmers and lumberjacks in the amazon.

        It’s probably better to be honest more often than not. Don’t do anything you wouldn’t want to read about on the front page of the New York Times the next day. And don’t lecture somebody about something they need unless you’re ready to replace it for them. Clearly the product pitch hasn’t gone over very well with that particular potential customer. It might’ve helped if the branding wasn’t along the lines of Paradox Phoodstuphs, but that’s neither not here nor not there.

        Tell you one thing, you got a reaction. A strong one. So you know you were able to inspire action, and maybe combining genetically-engineered meat-producing yeasts with self-satire could be a recipe for a household name brand, but the consumer response situation has developed and not necessarily to your advantage. If you wanted to get in a fight with this not-in-a-million-years customer, perhaps as an unintended side-effect of ingesting somebody’s science project for too long, it seems to me like you could’ve gone after them smarter. That not-on-your-frickin-life customer doesn’t run some deforestation-themed resort Island of Dr Moreau, and isn’t the one looking to disrupt the global food industry.

        If the whole reason Qonundrum Qomestibles is better than the other guys is because its genetically-engineered Black-Mirror–epsiode-premise is based on tinkering with single-celled life like yeast, and not animals, then own it. Say so. I mean, if you’re going to spaz out at the multitudes of people that’ll take your pitch as if it were a Michael Crichton setup, that is.
