Remember protein STARTS in plants. You don't need meat for protein. Actually the better protein is vegetables. Basic biology 201.

@Yusuf Jorgenz Hi there : ) Yes I saw that film too, it is a great educational tool to wake people up. My hope is that more and more people lessen their consumption of animal products and it has an impact on reducing climate crisis emissions, causes better health and finally ends the suffering of animals. There is a new film out this month called " The Game Changers" it is about vegan/plant based athletes. I hope you have an opportunity to see it. : )

@Jean those are facts. I didn't understand completely until I watched 'what the health' on Netflix. (about a average Joe that interviewed the fda and exposed the food industry) I was pretty shocked at the footage. It's nearly 2020.. I'm not political at all, simply looking for the truth.

And the billions of chickens, pigs and cows raised for slaughter are contributing to the destruction of our planet.

Oldest trick in the book - Popeye intentionally "run out "of sandwiches due to pretend unexpected strong demand so they can create the illusion they have such a blockbuster on their hands and benefit from free publicity. Is going to backfire soon when people will realize this is just a stunt and the chicken sandwich is no better than the rest of the crap they already sale.

Finally CNN not bashing Trump. But in the end CNN will probably find someone, somewhere who'll be willing to blame Trump for not having enough chicken sandwiches. And it'll be a Dem.

Greg S (1 month ago)
they don't make the chicken at the store, it's delivered in boxes and simply heated to temp. When they run out, they run out. People don't realize that unless your cooking at home your basically eating frozen food.
Greg S (1 month ago)
@Jennifer Cason It can't come in non frozen. SOrry but it can't
Jennifer Cason (1 month ago)
Sorry not true at all. It comes in fresh not frozen. And its marinated at the store. I know because I put in my hours doing it and I don't work my fingers seasoning something frozen.
