Love Island runner-up Tommy Fury with the “meat patch.”
People who eat meat may soon be publicly referred to as “addicts” and encouraged to check into diet rehab and to embrace veganism.
A bacon-scented meat patch – similar to a nicotine patch for smokers – has been unveiled today.
The patch, worn on the arm, is infused with a bacon scent, with wearers simply scratching the patch to get a whiff of sizzling bacon to help quell their cravings for meat.
Bosses at plant-based food firm Strong Roots teamed up with sensory expert, Professor Charles Spence at the University of Oxford, to develop the patch, the first of its kind.
One of the first people to test the patch out was last year’s Love Island runner-up Tommy Fury, a self confessed ‘meat-a-holic’.
Professor Spence, the author of Gastrophysics: The New Science of Eating, said the patch would allow wearers to ‘imagine‘ they were eating rashers of bacon, leaving them ‘satisfied’.
He said: ‘Studies have shown that scent can reduce food cravings.
“Imagine that you’re eating something that you want while eating something that you don’t really want” is literally what the fake meat and fake dairy vegan products are all about.
‘Our sense of smell is strongly connected to our ability to taste therefore experiencing food related cues such as smelling a bacon aroma, can lead us to imagine the act of eating that food.
‘Imagine eating enough bacon and you might find yourself sated.’
A poll of 2,000 Brits found that giving up meat was believed to be tougher than giving up cigarettes or alcohol, with 18 per cent saying they would really struggle to give up meat, compared to 15 per cent for nicotine and 15 per cent for alcohol.
Why would they need to give up meat? Why is no one aggressively questioning this madness?
It has never been explained why people should completely abandon meat and animal products instead of reducing their intake.
The usual argument is that producing meat is worse for the environment than producing plant foods. If that is the case, it would only be a matter of figuring out the “environmental cost” of meat in relation to plants in order to present an environmentally-friendly amount of meat for people to eat.
If, let’s say, producing one kilogram of meat is as taxing on the planet as producing five kilograms of rice, people could choose whether to eat a kilogram of meat or five kilograms of rice.
But what we’re told nowadays is that animal foods should be completely abandoned.
Why is that?
A spokesman for Strong Roots said today: ‘Brits keen to adopt a vegetarian diet are about to get scientifically-proven help to wean them off their love of meat.
‘A meat patch – similar to a nicotine patch – is being trialled from this weekend in order to help a nation of carnivores kick the habit.
‘It comes after a study of 2,000 adults found that between cigarettes, alcohol and meat, meat is the hardest to give up.’
Samuel Dennigan, the founder of Strong Roots, said: ‘It’s Veganuary and we know that more people than ever are trying to adopt a plant-based lifestyle this year.
‘However, the research shows just how many of them struggle with their resolution, so we wanted to offer a helping hand, and have developed the world’s first ever meat-patch.
‘We hope it goes some way to supporting all the meat-a-holics out there.’
Yes, because meat is the same as alcohol and cigarettes, goyim.
Talking about meat addiction is like talking about nutrient addiction, oxygen addiction, and “being alive” addiction.
If people could thrive without animal foods, people in the past would have quickly adopted a berries and leaves diet or whatever and saved themselves the trouble of risking their lives hunting to acquire food, and the time and work requirements of raising animals in farms.
The berries and leaves diet is quite popular nowadays.
But I mean, True Veganism has never been tried.
