you should insist on it.
you ever seen a cow in a field?
was it eating? Wheat - no! Barley - no! Oats - No!
if you saw a cow in a field, it was eating grass.
Grass is what cows are built to eat. It is what their digestive
systems are designed to digest. It is what gives their
meat the properties that nature designed it to have. Grass-fed
cows are natural cows.
not seem so to us, but grass is pretty nutritional stuff.
Common sense says that if you can build cows, sheep, goats
and much larger animals entirely from grass, it must have
a lot of nutrients in it. After all, that's where the name "grazing" animals
comes from isn't it?
cows (or virtually any other grazing animal for that matter)
are fed on grass, the nutrients from the grass are passed
on into the tissues. One of the most important of these
is Omega-3 fatty acid - one of the nutrients in which Americans,
in particular are most deficient.
recent study showed that over 25% of the Americans tested
had so little omega-3 fatty acid in their systems that
it was undetectable. This is a serious problem.
Omega-3 is an essential
fatty acid, meaning that it can't be made by the
body from other fats and MUST be ingested
in the diet. the other essential fatty acid type, Omega-6
is found in abundance in the Western diet.
on the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 vary, but it is
likely that the closer it is to 1:1, the healthier the
effect. The average American diet has a ratio of around
15:1, Britons are a little better a8 9:1, followed by Europeans
at about 5:1. Even the Japanese, arguably the healthiest
nation on Earth can only manage 3:1.
we bring this up here is that omega-3 fatty acid is found
in beef and animal fat - but ONLY when the cow
has been fed on grass, i.e. it is 100% grass-fed
beef. Grain-fed cattle (apart from the other problems modern
farming introduces) contain little or no omega-3 in
their meat or fat, leading to the types of imbalance that
are typified by the American and (to a lesser extent) UK
these imbalances (along with the propaganda of the vegetable
oil industry) that have spawned the "saturated
fat", "cholesterol" and
associated "low-fat" regimes that are so popular
today, based on totally flawed scientific logic and incomplete
fat intake does not increase cholesterol levels. These
are controlled by the liver, which will produce a much
as the body needs.
High cholesterol is
not the cause of heart disease,
it is a sign of nutritional deficiency, namely lack of Vitamin
or polyunsaturated vegetable oils are much worse
for you than natural, saturated
once medicine and the general public understand these facts
will both be able to move beyond the dogma of
the last 50 years and improve health rather than
treating symptoms. The conversion of all beef
to grass-fed beef would be a good start.
