Comments on: Grass-fed beef packs a punch to environment http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/04/08/grass-fed-beef-packs-a-punch-to-environment/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Leda_Beth http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2010/04/08/grass-fed-beef-packs-a-punch-to-environment/comment-page-1/#comment-363883 Tue, 29 Apr 2014 12:36:19 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=16666#comment-363883 It is disturbing that factual information like this seems to have no impact on changing people’s minds on their personal habits. If they want to eat beef, they will– and environmental destruction doesn’t matter. Scientists say we are entering a “great extinction” where we may lose half or more of all species, sea level will rise inundating our coastlines, and we will continue to get more and more intense storms. The article didn’t touch on the fact that a whole foods plant based diet is much healthier for people– a way to reverse heart disease and linked with less cancer and diabetes. Check the work of Drs. Colin Campbell and Caldwell Esselstyn. I am not sure whether even hearing that would get people to change their minds, unless currently faced with a medical emergency.

You fool.

There’s one more reason to second guess what we’re eating.

Grass fed beef is much better for your health. You are what you eat.

The sooner America realizes this, and the disgusting industry based on quarter-pounders and triple heart bypass burgers the better off the entire nation will be. Cows will go back to eating grass because no one will care what their eating when we don’t have to eat them!!!

Animals finished at feed lots on grains have much much higher levels of omega 6 fat saturation and lower amounts of omega 3. When consumed this leads to inflammatory markers in the human body leading to an array of disease pathologies ranging from heart disease to arthritis. Wild animals have higher levels of omega 3 (anti-inflammatory) compared to omega 6 (inflammatory). These animals are leaner and strictly eat what nature intended for them. I would rather eat an animal feed on all different types of live plants than a fat obese, almost diabetic cow feed corn. Lastly, the writer didn’t take into account the amount carbon emission needed to produce and provide all that grain at feedlots. Man I wish people would wake up and do some research for themselves than listen to idiots like this writer.

It’s easier for me to avoid meat entirely, then it would be to keep it straight which kind is best for me and best for the environment.
