GrassFed and Organic
- The saturated (or “bad”) fat content is much lower and the levels of healthy fats are significantly higher.
- The level of conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, is up to five times as much as compared to feed lot cattle. CLA is a fatty acid responsible for cancer protection, lowering cholesterol, and even contributes to weight loss.
- The ratio of omega-3 fatty acids to omega-6 fatty acids is at a healthier level in grass fed beef. Americans are consuming significantly more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids (a ratio of approximately 15-to-1). Ratté says this may help to explain the occurrence of chronic inflammatory disease (Some examples of chronic inflammatory diseases include: celiac disease, vasculitis, lupus, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), irritable bowel disease, atherosclerosis, arthritis, and psoriasis) in American culture. The ratio can become unbalanced simply by the food choices you make. For example, beef that has been fed grain, soy beans, hormones and other additives to fatten them up can have ratios as high as 15-to-1. When people consume this beef, it increases their ratio as well. On the other hand, grass-fed, grass-finished beef have a ratio closer to 5-to-2, which is similar to the ratio humans need.
- Vitamin and nutrient content is much higher in grass fed and calories are lower. The protein is of a better quality and there is more of it.
- If you have a child with ADHD, the extra omega 3 fats in grass fed beef can help improve their attention.
Conventional (Regular stuff bought in retail stores)
- Conventionally raised beef contains injects hormones, antibiotics, chemicals, and additives
- The food these cattle are force fed may contain anything from actual garbage to other animals, which is added to processed, chemically and genetically modified corn.
- Grain feeding seems to promote the growth and acid resistance of Escherichia coli in fattening beef cattle, and acid-resistant E. coli are more likely to survive the human gastric stomach. When cattle were fed hay for only five days, the number and acid resistance of E. coli decreased dramatically. (Translation: Grain fed beef are more likely to give your family E.Coli- Mad Cow has never been found in a GrassFed Cow)
The Omega-3 Fatty Acid is the one most lacking in the current ‘western diet’
Clinical studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may be helpful in treating a variety of health conditions. The evidence is strongest for heart disease and problems that contribute to heart disease, but the range of possible uses for omega-3 fatty acids include:
High blood pressure
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
Although further research is needed, preliminary evidence suggests that omega-3 fatty acids may also prove helpful in protecting against certain infections and treating a variety of conditions, including autism, ulcers, migraine headaches, preterm labor, emphysema, psoriasis, glaucoma, Lyme disease, systemic lupus erythmatosus (lupus), irregular heart beats (arrhythmias), multiple sclerosis, and panic attacks. Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation may also help to reduce stress and the effects it has on the body.
