Your hamburger originates from corn
Did you realize that 93% of a burger has originated from corn? 93% of that burger has come from corn. If you’re doing burgers from a fast-food restaurant, of course, I’m not talking about grass-fed burgers, I’m talking about corn-fed beef. There was an interesting study, that evaluated 480 fast-food burger joints in New York. And they looked at something called carbon 13, and corn has the most of this versus other things you would feed a cow. And he found that 93% of the tissues in the hamburger were created from corn. And they also found a chicken had a similar profile. If you didn’t see the movie king corn, you should check that out. fascinating on the relationship between, corn and our own body cells. They talk about a fascinating link between, the food that we eat and corn actually getting into our DNA as well. And so the very building blocks of animals and humans are becoming corn-based not to mention soy-based and wheat-based. The great majority of the food that we eat comes from corn, soy, and wheat.
Even the so-called healthy plant proteins that they’re going to be putting in the meat, come from soy wheat, gluten, and potato starch. And they’re also thinking about putting corn in there as well. It’s called corn Xen, which is a by-product of ethanol. And of course, it’s so badly processed. They make it sound so healthy when they talk about plant proteins. But first of all, using GMO plants that are highly processed. So you can all these residuals of solvents and other chemicals that you really don’t need in your body. I remember in college, basically living probably for three months on fast food because I was running out of money and I would get to like two burgers for a buck, $1 for two burgers. I mean, that’s an incredible deal, right?
But of course, what are you really getting? I could only imagine what those cows ate and of course back then, I, the bun I, everything with it, but coming to the present, I consume a lot of hamburgers. Of course, without the bun, I might use lettuce wraps. I’m not using cabbage wraps or just the burger itself, but it’s always going to be grass-fed. So there’s really nothing wrong with the burger itself, but there’s a lot wrong with what the cow is fed and how the cow is processed or treated while it was alive.
Why you shouldn’t consume fast-food burgers?
there are some interesting things about fast food burgers that I want to talk about. And number one, they found that 12% of the actual burger itself came from muscle meat. The rest came from sugar, sorbitol meat glue, which is a certain enzyme, and hydrolyzed corn protein. Here we go with the corn again. And of course, with the muscle meat, there’s also, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, blood vessels, nerves, even bone, which I don’t mind all that stuff, but I do mine, all the other stuff that added to it.
When a cow is fed actual grains, the omega-six versus the omega-3 ratios go way on the balance. So you’re going to get a lot of omega-six, which is highly inflammatory. Now the cost that I’m raising right now is living on grass, but in the winter, we feed them some hay, which is fermented as well as something very new that I’m experimenting on, which has sprouted, barley seed. In fact, they go after it like Paranas. So sprouted barley is called fodder, and you can feed that to the animals it’s super healthy and you can grow it very inexpensively.
And within like seven days, that would be a substitute to feeding the cattle grains now in a typical burger in a restaurant. And there’s very, very, very high sodium. There are over a thousand milligrams of sodium, which I’m not against sodium, but I like it to be in the form of sea salt, not just sodium, and also many people are deficient in potassium. So the more sodium you have when you don’t have potassium, it’s really hard on the kidneys. So the more sodium you have, make sure you balance it out with potassium, but really make sure it’s in a form of sea salt.
And then you have, of course, the other thing, which is glyphosate, which is in the GMO corn soy, which feeds the animals. Well, if I say it as an herbicide that destroys the soil and it can severely affect our bodies as well, it can actually sterilize the soil. Now, since we’re on the topic of soil, I’m going to talk about antibiotics. Over 80% of the antibiotics sold are used for animals. That’s probably because they’re feeding them grains. And that grains create a lot of problems with their digestive system and their immune system. There was a study in 2018, which evaluated, burger joints.
And they found that 23 out of 25 of those restaurants contain meat that had traces of antibiotics. Now the big problem with antibiotics for animals is the increased antibiotic resistance. So in other words, the more that you take it, the more chronically you’re exposed to it, and the more than animal or human becomes resistant to the antibiotic and they no longer work. And so now we get these breeds of superbugs that we can’t kill. And there are some pretty hardcore data that shows that the antibiotic resistance from the animals can be transferred over to humans. They call this a non-therapeutic antibiotic. I mean, when you think about it, most antibiotics come from microbes in the soil either bacteria or fungi.
And so these microbes are really, really smart because they created this antibiotic to kill the more deadly pathogens in the soil. And so this is the way it’s providing and keeping everything in check. And of course, when we come in and destroy the soil, we pretty much sterilize the environment and we wipe out the antibiotics and now the pathogenic microbes and fungi can then thrive. So really the strength of the immune system in a plant, and also our bodies is dependent on the immune system of the soil and the microbes that live in this environment. And so this idea of steaming the soil, they actually do that. They actually can sterilize the soil, but putting this hot water on it, it kills off the microbes.
And it literally takes like four years to grow it back. Those microbes are essential for mobilizing the minerals and rocks to make them available for the plant. And so when you try to grow food and soil that doesn’t have these microbes, you have to add fertilizers. Do you have to add a lot of minerals to try to make it fertile again? And of course, they don’t have all 94 minerals. They pretty much add three NPK, nitrogen phosphorus, and potassium. So this is the food that is created in the soils that feed the animals. This is the food that we’re getting. We’re getting a lot of missing things from the food because of the soil being so infertile.
Back to this broker, they also put another chemical in the burger to kill off pathogens. It’s called sodium diaspora, Tate, just as the icing on the cake. And then of course we have the condiments. We have the Manets, the catch-up is okay. Filled with soy, filled with corn as in high-fructose corn syrup. And then of course those fries are deep-fried in corn oil. And your soda that you have with the burger is basically corn as in high fructose corn syrup, not to mention the bun being refined wheat corn because they use high fructose corn syrup in that. And they put some soil in there and sugar from beach sugar, which is GMO, and then sprinkle some synthetic vitamins. And then we just mix an adult conditioner to make it really a great texture that we love. Other than that, they’re totally healthy. So it’s a really good idea to make your own burgers, make sure you get the grass-fed grass-finished.
