The Lord is my Refuge and my Rock ... Psalm 18
Does it really make a difference? Is feeding grass better? How is this different from the industry standard of feeding corn? Essentially, the difference between grass fed and corn fed beef all boils down to one striking analogy: It’s the difference, for humans, between eating bags of spinach all day versus dense, calorie-rich cornflakes. The food that a cow eats can have a major effect on its meat’s nutrient composition and quality.
What about heart health for humans? What do cardiologists say?
"For most of human history, our ancestors only ate beef from animals raised on grass. Why? Because cows are designed to eat grass. But over the past 100 years, there’s been a major shift in our diet — and we’re just now starting to feel the impact of it. “Big Agriculture” started feeding livestock with grains to save money and increase production, but we’re the ones paying the price with our health.
Here’s why this change has been so harmful…
Grass-fed beef has a natural, balanced ratio of omega-6 fats to omega-3 fats — the ratio is about 3:1, which is perfect. But when your ratio is any higher than 4:1, you start getting serious health problems: heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, and more.
And the fact is, modern grain-fed beef can have a ratio of 20:1 or even higher! Grain-fed beef is deficient in healthy omega-3s but it’s loaded with omega-6s, which are extremely unhealthy at these high levels.
Grass-fed beef is healthier, it’s leaner, and it tastes better. I tell my patients to switch to grass-fed beef exclusively."... Dr Steven Gundry, MD (For over thirty years, one of the world’s pre-eminent experts in heart surgery)
