Veterinarian says 4 Burger King meatless burgers a day will grow breasts on men

Burger King has a new artificial-meat Impossible Whopper, advertised as a plant-based, healthier alternative to the beef whopper.

But according to veterinarian James Stangle, DVM, what Burger King doesn’t tell you is that one Impossible Whopper contains 18 million times as much estrogen as the regular beef whopper. Eating four Impossible Whoppers a day will grow boobs on men.

Stangle is a large animal veterinarian in Milesville, South Dakota.

In an article for Tri-State Livestock News, Dr. Stangle writes:

  1. To begin, the impossible whopper patty is made from 24 ingredients, the most important of which is soy protein. The regular whopper patty has just one ingredient, beef. (See the list of ingredients in an impossible whopper patty here.)
  2. The impossible whopper has 44 mg of estrogen and the whopper has 2.5 ng of estrogen. Since there are 1 million nanograms (ng) in one milligram (mg), that means an impossible whopper has 18 million times as much estrogen as a regular hormone-implanted beef whopper.
  3. Six glasses of soy milk per day or four impossible whoppers have enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male.
  4. Nor is the impossible whopper healthier:
    • The impossible whopper (with 630 calories, mainly from added oils) has only 5% fewer calories than the whopper (with 660 calories).
    • The impossible whopper (22 grams) has 10 fewer grams of usable protein than the beef whopper (25 grams). (Protein consists of amino acids. Of the 20 amino acids, 9 are essential. Each of these 9 essential amino acids must meet a certain level to make a complete protein profile. An essential amino acid that does not hit the required amount is “rate limiting”. In beef the rate limiting amino acid is tryptophan, which is at 79% of the required level; in soy protein, however, the rate limiting amino acid is methionine, which is at 41% of the required level. In other words, you would have to eat 2¼ impossible whoppers to get the same protein in one whopper.)
    • The impossible whopper contains a genetically-modified organism (GMO) — leghemoglobin. Leghemoglobin mimics the hemoglobin that gives beef its red color. To make enough leghemoglobin to add to the impossible whopper, scientists spliced the gene for leghemoglobin into yeast, which is then added to the impossible whopper.

It should be pointed out that:

(1) Dr. Stangle is writing for a meat website, Tri-State Livestock News, which calls itself “a leading publication within the livestock industry” and thus has a vested interest in promoting beef against Burger King’s meatless burger.

(2) Stangle provides no sources for his many claims, including the alarming assertion that men will grow breasts from drinking six glasses of soy milk or eating four Burger King impossible whoppers a day.

It turns out the claim about six glasses of soy milk comes from an “unusual” clinical case of a 60-year-old man who developed breasts (gynecomastia) from drinking 3 quarts (twelve 8-oz cups) of soy milk a day. After he discontinued drinking soy milk, his gynecomastia decreased and the estrogen in his  body slowly returned to normal. (See J. Martinez and J.E. Lewi, “An unusual case of gynecomastia associated with soy product consumption,” Endocrine Practice, 14:4, May-June 2008, pp. 415-418.)

According to an article about the impossible burger by Paul Kita in Men’s Health:

[I]n the 2000’s a few small studies and rodent studies appeared to show that compounds within soy called phytoestrogens might disrupt hormones, which could lead to low sperm count and man boobs.

Several news outlets (including this one), may have overblown those findings. “Such a link has never been substantiated in human studies,” says Qi Sun, M.D. assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard, told Men’s Health in October 2018. “I don’t think this is a concern at all.”

In fact, men who consumed diets that included soy had a 29 percent reduced risk of developing prostate cancer, according to a 2018 meta-analysis published in the journal Nutrients.

Dr. Strangle is probably exaggerating for effect although promoting beef is not necessarily a bad thing. It is generally nutritionally balanced and a good source of high quality protein. The problem is hormone and antibiotic residues due to factory farming. One real cause of gynecomastia is the psychiatric medication risperidone. The system seems to favor it for children and adolescents. It causes prolactin levels to skyrocket and I have seen numerous cases of boys growing breasts and women lactating and having painfully swollen breasts. There is no cure for gynecomastia, once breast have grown, other than surgery. Pharma evidently decided… Read more »

Weeeee! Good news for the transgenders, growing boobs, the lines will be endless and we will be able to tell who’s who, next should be growing perfectly round butts the natural way, Brazilian butts will “burst! Implants? Our bodies are God’s creation, He gave it to us and must not be altered in any ways.

I already don’t eat at BK. Won’t be eating this thing either.

They are heavily marketing this God-knows-what burger, trying to create a niche market of the “only toxic white males eat meat” demographic

Used to be a small candy company who made candies that looked like one flavor but tasted like something else,i.e. Colored like strawberry,but tasted like licorice. Lots of fun-wonder what happened to THEM…..

Baffles me why a vegetarian would be drawn to an artificial meat product,…any how.

And, of course, all commercial soy is GMO too .. As we animals are “what we eat,” are any products we consume nowadays normal or good for us?

Vegetables grown with genuine heirloom seeds, wild game, some freshwater fish, and spring water. And edible wild plants. That’s about it. Just about anything that is commercially produced is slow poison and sometimes not so slow

Grass Finished beef, finished not just grass fed. Weston A Price tried to find natives who only ate plant foods and were healthy, he traveled the world and found NONE. Most healthy ones were the tribes that ate beef, organ meats. The Scottish Highlanders were incredibly healthy and strong, until the English kicked their women and children off their grazing lands while the men were over in India and elsewhere fighting for the British Crown. They ate haggis and all of that good stuff from their animals.

My wife avoids soy products. It’s not that soy is automatically bad, but that much of what reaches us has been twisted in the chemistry set. We call it FrankenSoy. 😀

Unless soy is fermented for a year or more (soy sauce, miso, etc), it’s not good for anyone or anything. The thing about Chinese or Japanese eating loads of soy is a load of crap, they use it as a condiment. Vegans eat it and eventually go crazy due to B12 deficiency or die from anemia. And vegans get very overweight too.

I laughed like hell at this one….”The regular whopper patty has just one ingredient, beef.”. Yeah, right! I don’t think so. Anybody dumb enough to believe that line?

Yep, they call them *itch *its on men. Or “he boobies” to quote Derf. Soy is a big bad one, it’s all over the food supply, it is an endocrine disruptor, it’s toxic to the thyroid, almost all of it is GMO (which cause cancer, eczema etc), it causes puberty problems in boys fed soy formula as infants. Funny how people think they’re eating healthy, yet everyone is getting sicker than ever. People have to get a recipe book published 100 years ago and start making what people ate back then. In the 1900’s people weren’t fat and weak like… Read more »
