The beef industry's fascination with white saturated fat (which develops when cattle are fed grain) started about a century ago. The feedlot industry then evolved on the back of the grain feeding concept.
The health problems associated with diets high in Omega-6 and low in Omega-3 are cancer, heart disease, depression, obesity, insulin resistance, allergies, autoimmune diseases such as lupus and arthritis, diabetes, attention deficit syndrome, and the list goes on.
These diseases are not associated with bacterial infections. They are bodies failing, not from aging, but from improper diets.
We think this makes the positive health story for natural grass-fed beef rather ironclad.
Scientists have discovered that fat is essential for good health. They've also determined that there is no such thing as "good fats" and "bad fats." All fats are good. But if the balance of fats is inappropriate, then that leads to body failures (chronic disease).
