Plant-based burger Opens a New Window.  makers say their burgers are better for the planet than beef burgers. But are they better for their consumers’ health?

Dr. Mike Varshavski, Family Medicine told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo Opens a New Window.  on Friday, “I think they’re great for the environment. If we can reduce our animal consumption, that’s going to be a win right away because we reduce animal emissions.”

Red meat, such as hamburger, delivers health risks from too much carnitine, lecithin and choline, which change the bacteria in your gut to produce inflammation in your body. That can lead to an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, cancer and brain dysfunction. A large study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that eating one additional serving a day of unprocessed red meat over the decades-long course of the study raised the risk of mortality by 13 percent.

I rather eat real meat. Very fine thank you.

Not like I was going to eat them anyway.

I tried the Impossible Burger at Carl's Jr. (Hardee's if you're in the east) and was not impressed one bit.
