WU-TANG CLAN PARTNERS WITH WHITE CASTLE TO PROMOTE VEGAN IMPOSSIBLE SLIDER

a

For nearly 100 years, White Castle has been one of those fast food chains that people either love, hate, or tolerate when it’s time to feed the munchies. Wu-Tang Clan’s The RZA has teamed up with White Castle to promote its veggie burger slider in a most unique way, continuing a long-running partnership of sorts between the brands.

Veg News reports:

White Castle shared a promotional video on Instagram, wherein Wu-Tang member and longtime vegan RZA directed followers to a hotline set up to promote the Impossible Slider. “Peace. My name is RZA9000, formerly known as the RZA. I have uploaded my consciousness into a supreme data system and now I possess the knowledge infinite,” the disembodied voice of RZA says in the video.

“Together with the Wu-Tang Clan, we will slide through space, seek wisdom, and expand the parameters of the mind. If you are an Earthling and you need answers, call 1-833-4-SLIDER.” The phone number connects to a recorded message, wherein RZA urges callers to leave a “question about existence” that may be used as part of the campaign, ending the recording with a cryptic statement. “All will be revealed. Wu-Tang in space, eating vegan Impossible Sliders—October 1.”

Back in April, Ghostface Killa and Cappadonna rocked a set at a Brooklyn White Castle to promote the launch of the Impossible Slider, and a look on some Wu-Tang members’ social media pages show and prove that the might WTC is down with the mighty WC.

According to most accounts, the Impossible Slider is selling well and will eventually be made available via all its chains nationwide.

Bacon Is As Dangerous As Cigarettes

Eating bacon is as bad as smoking cigarettes.

The World Health Organization has just reported that eating bacon could give people bowel cancer. In effect, this means that it is just as bad as smoking cigarettes.

Bacon Can Increase Risk of Bowel Cancer

comprehensive study has just been published that follows up on a report dating back to late 2015 about processed meats causing cancer. This meant that the World Health Organization said that sausages, bacon and other meats that had been processed were put in the group 1 carcinogenic category, which also includes cigarettes, asbestos, and arsenic.

The World Health Organization said that eating 50 grams of processed meat each day, which is around the equivalent of eating a couple of rashers of bacon or a single hot dog, sees the risk of bowel cancer rising by 18%. It was also stated that 34,000 additional deaths related to cancer occurred worldwide every year due to eating processed meat.

Damming Report Came From 400 Studies in 10 Countries

Eating bacon was said to be as bad as smoking cigarettes by the World Health Organization after they reviewed evidence that was exhaustive that had been provided by 22 scientists who conducted more than 400 studies over ten different countries. The study took data from many hundreds of thousands of subjects.

The core research revealed that processed meats such as hot dogs, sausages, salami, and pastrami are all meats that are smoked, salted, cured or have preservatives added to them. When people eat huge quantities of additives, they face a bigger risk of developing cancer, more specifically bowel cancer, said the World Cancer Research Fund.

Bowel Cancer Is Third Most Common Cancer in World

The National Health Service said that anyone who eats a large quantity of the meats faces a higher risk of contracting bowel cancer than those who only eat them in small amounts. It was revealed that in Europe bowel cancer is the second most common type of cancer along with being the third most common around the globe, said Cancer Research UK.

After the results of the research were revealed, the sales of bacon dipped sharply, and supermarkets in Britain said that the drop in sales was around £3 million in only a fortnight. Some years after the first report, the sales did rise, but still, there is a real danger to eating a lot of bacon and other processed meats.

As bacon and sausage make up the staple of the full English breakfast in Europe, people are not starting the day off right with a healthy meal; instead, they are putting themselves at risk of contracting cancer. The video below might put you off frying up that bacon for breakfast as it shows the whole process of how bacon is made.

McDonald’s Is Testing a New Vegan Burger!

screen-shot-2017-10-06-at-11-25-19-am

The times are a changing! McDonald’s recently announced “The McVegan,” a soy-based patty topped with vegan fixings. The all-vegan burger is currently being tested at a McDonald’s location in Tampere, Finland, from October 4th through November 21st, so you might want to grab your plane ticket soon!

Of course, if you’re avoiding all animal products, then you’ll want to skip the fries. Unfortunately, McDonald’s fries contain “natural beef flavors,” an ingredient that is made from wheat and milk derivatives. Don’t worry, though — you can pick up an order of vegan fries to-go at Wendy’s.

We’re glad to see McDonald’s get on board with the plant-based trend, also just recently released an all-vegetarian burger in France. For all of us who are stateside, don’t worry, you can still get your meat-free burger fix at fast food establishments. The plant-based Beyond Burger is being tested in T.G.I. Friday’s locations and White Castle offers two different vegan burgers.

According to the 2017 Protein Alternatives Report by global market research firm Mintel, Millennials are especially open to meat alternatives; 64 percent have tried meatless burgers. Meanwhile, only one in five Millennials has tried a Big Mac. Whether one is gravitating towards meatless options due to diet, environmental concerns, health, or animal welfare concerns, veggie burgers are no longer a fringe trend!

We’ll see how the McVegan does in Finland and will anxiously await its move to the U.S.!

Giant egg company Cal-Maine Foods’ CEO says vegan alternatives are responsible for the company’s first big loss of profits in over a decade.

The company’s profit plummeted by $24.5 million in its fourth-quarter alone—a stark contrast to the $367,000 that the company lost in the same time period last year.

PRINCE HARRY WILL SKIP BOXING DAY HUNT FOR ANIMAL ACTIVIST FIANCÉE MEGHAN MARKLE

maxresdefault[1]

LAD Bible has reported that this year Prince Harry will not be participating in the traditional boxing day hunt, as has been announced by ‘a royal insider’.

The prince has made the decision, so as not to upset his fiancée Meghan Markle, who is an outspoken animal rights activist, and has been seen to consume vegan meats, though not on every occasion.

As revealed by the Sun, the royal insider said: “The Boxing Day shoot was always going to be a tricky issue.

MEGHAN IS A KEEN ANIMAL RIGHTS CAMPAIGNER AND DOESN’T LIKE HUNTING IN ANY FORM.

“Harry loves it and has always been out there on Boxing Day. But if it means breaking with long-standing royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, so be it. It’s fair to say that there are some pretty stunned faces around here.”

AND THIS IS NOT THE ONLY ROYAL TRADITION THAT WAS BROKEN THIS YEAR!

Meghan has been spending Christmas day with the Royal family, although only married couples should be allowed to do so. This exception was not even made for Prince William and Kate Middleton, when they had to spend Christmas apart in 2010. The Queen has said to have made the compromise, as the wedding is only five months apart.

Hopefully more people will choose compassion over tradition in the future!

Well done, Canada! After consulting with the public on plans to revise the national food guide, the Canadian government has now released a new draft of their healthy eating recommendations and the guide favors a “high proportion of plant-based foods”! The food guide’s first recommendation notes the importance of whole foods and states that plant-based foods are the preferred source of protein. The guide recommends, “regular intake of vegetables, fruit, whole grains and protein-rich foods, especially plant-based sources of protein.” Wow!

By eating less meat and more fruit and vegetables, the world could prevent several million deaths per year by 2050, cut planet-warming emissions substantially, and save billions of dollars annually in healthcare costs and climate damage, researchers said. A new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences is the first to estimate both the health and climate change impacts of a global move towards a more plant-based diet, they said. “We do not expect everybody to become vegan,” said lead author Marco Springmann of the Oxford Martin Program on the Future of Food.
