This comes from XKCD, so it must be true:







It agrees with this:




In 2016, a group of scientists suggested that bio-engineering could produce
humans who are allergic to beef:




If these scientists manage to insert the DNA from the pathogen in the Lone
Star tick which causes bovine protein intolerance, they could perhaps create
a virus which is otherwise harmless but causes the infected person to become
unable to devour beef.  Then they could "accidentally" release it, the virus
or pathogen spreads around the globe, demand for beef falls to nearly
nothing, most of the herds around the world could be slaughtered, greatly
reducing emissions of methane, saving the planet from what our government is
telling us is the greatest threat: global warming.


Of course not all of us accept the notion that global warming is the
greatest threat to the planet.
