A Closer Look at Grass-Fed Beef – Dave Asprey
Do you eat Organic grass fed beef? Here are the differences. The 2nd choice Dave Asprey discusses is organic grass fed but (note finished) so fed 2-3 months of grain and besides mold is usually GMOs. Yes – the USDA allows GMOs to be fed last 90 days and called Organic. (Look for 100% grass fed or grass finished & Know your farmer). If you make the paleo transition its critical to know what you’re eating.

Why I DON’T Eat a Paleo Diet…But Close – by Dr. Josh Axe

Why I am a Pegan – or Paleo-Vegan – and Why You Should Be Too!

Dr. Hyman writes – “All meat is not created equally. Is it feed lot beef that has more palmitic and myristic acid7 that raises cholesterol and increases inflammation, or is it grass fed beef that has more cholesterol neutral stearic acid and contains protective omega 3 fats and vitamins A and D that raises glutathione and other antioxidants?   Some studies8 show meat increases heart disease and death rates, but others show the opposite9. In truth it depends on the quality of the study, but the evidence in my mind is trending toward meat not being linked to death or heart attacks for the reasons I explained earlier – there may have been other reasons excluded from the analysis in the meat eaters – such as they were higher sugar consumers, they were more sedentary and they were more likely to smoke and drink.  Eating sustainably raised, clean meat, poultry and lamb and other esoteric meats such as ostrich, bison or venison as part a healthy diet is not likely harmful and is very helpful in reducing triglycerides, raising HDL (or good cholesterol), lowering blood sugar, reducing belly fat, reducing appetite, raising testosterone and increasing muscle mass.  On the other hand, eating a lot of meat puts pressure on the planet – more water use, more climate change, and more energy inputs. Eat meat as a side dish or condiment, and only consume grass fed and sustainably-raised.”
