About Healthy Beef
Yes, beef can be a healthy part of your diet. Although red, processed meats may deserve their reputation, lean, grass fed beef is a very healthy, high quality source of protein.
Grass fed beef has a different proportion of healthy Omega 3 and 6 Fatty Acids than the grain fed beef at the grocery store. Why is this? Because grass and grain are processed differently by the cow.
Cows are designed to eat grass. Their stomachs have a special compartment called the rumen, which has specific microbes and enzymes to break down the tough cellulose structure of grass. Grass maintains the stomach at a neutral pH of 6.4 and results in healthy fats in the meat called Omega 3 Fatty Acids.
Omega 3's are important for human health and development, contributing to brain, eye, nerve, heart and circulatory health. In grass fed beef, the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is about 2:1, leaving room for some grain intake in your diet.
Grain fed beef, with an Omega 6 to 3 ratio of 4:1 leads to too much Omega 6, which in turn causes all kinds of human health problems related to inflammation.
And that's before growth hormone, testosterone and longterm, sub-therapeutic antibiotics are given to cattle in feed lots.
