Watch Colbert Make Fun of Frankenstein Milk

In case you needed more reasons to eat healthy or you're still wondering if genetically engineered foods is the way to go, watch Stephen Colbert's latest Thought for Food.

Have you heard of Fairlife milk yet? "Yes, Fairlife, for people who want life that's just shy of good," says Colbert. "Folks, these 'emoongineers' have found a way to break milk down for parts and then put it back together in any way they want. It's like they got Frankenstein to lactate."

And, if you're wondering who makes this product, Colbert let's you know that "you can trust that this beefed-up milk is good for you because it's made by the nature-loving health nuts at Coca-Cola."

Colbert doesn't stop there. He then goes on to share the latest on Pizza Hut's new mind-reading menu.

The actions of the U.S. meat industry throughout the pandemic have brought to light the true corruption and waste that are inherent within our food system. Despite a new wave of rising COVID-19 cases, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently submitted a proposal to further increase "the maximum slaughter line speed by 25 percent," which was already far too fast and highly dangerous. It has been made evident that the industry will exploit its workers and animals all to boost its profit.
