Seven Good Reasons to Eat Only Grass-Fed Beef
By Dr. Jonny Bowden
Ever since I wrote Living the Low Carb Life in 2004, I've been asked to defend my statement that meat is a healthy food. Truth be told, it's a hard statement to defend these days -- but not because meat is inherently unhealthy.
It's because the kind of meat most people eat is poisoned with antibiotics, steroids, and hormones -- and just as bad -- comes from feedlot farms where the animals are treated horrendously. They're also fed an unnatural diet of grain and have a high level of inflammation-causing omega-6 fats in their meat that is passed on to consumers.
But there's a solution: buy (and eat) only grass-fed meat. Yes, it's more expensive (just eat less!) -- but grass-fed cattle produce a whole different kind of meat -- and it's actually good for you!
Here are my top seven reasons to eat only grass (pasture) raised beef.
Meat can be a perfectly healthy food, especially so when it's combined with high vegetable intake. The key to the health of the animals we eat is their diet (and living conditions). Grass and pasture make for healthy cows which in turn makes for healthy meat. Anything else doesn't even come close.
It's worth noting that buffalo is almost always grass-fed, and is a good alternative to regular old supermarket beef.
