Man invents nutrient shake to replace food

Rob Rhinehart has developed a special type of shake in a bid to solve the world's food problems.

The idea stemmed from a realization that conventional food is problematic, expensive and time consuming to prepare. Rhinehart decided to try and solve all these issues and more by inventing a new type of food that was cheap, easy to make and would provide the body with everything it needs.

By combining a concoction of vitamins, minerals and basic foodstuffs he eventually came up with a drink he calls "Soylent". With it, he claims, it is possible to live a perfectly normal, active life without having to ingest anything else at all. Not only could this solve the world's food shortage problems but it could also make people healthier and save them money as well.

But does it actually work ? Soylent is not without its critics, but with further trials being planned for the near future it may not be long before we know for sure if Rhinehart's invention will revolutionize how we consume food or whether the idea was fundamentally flawed from the outset.

"Rob Rhinehart has replaced all his meals with a nutrient-rich shake he calls ‘Soylent’."

So you want people to stop eating at restaurants and fast food. Tell me who is going to take care of all those employees. As I have said before many countries control their population through hunger. Then some countries borrow money. Which they can use for anything they want except infrastructure. Don't you just love liberals. I will also remind you that 1 the usa government throws away enough food every year to food the world, and 2 a large portian of our corn crop(by law) has to go for gas. Don't you just love enviromentatists.

Some people, notably vegans and vegetarians (there's a difference) forego meat and animal products such as eggs and dairy, out of belief eating animal products does more harm to your bodies. I can't imagine a meat-free/dairy-free diet, because our bodies take in protein from flesh and can digest dairy products, unless you have lactose intolerance which affects tens of millions, when the body cannot break down the enzymes from cow's milk and genetically found in people, a high incidence in some racial or ethnic groups like east Asians and Native Americans. To refuse to eat again is... [More]

Liquid diet would not work for me because of reasons Eldorado gave. Plus I like real food.
