Grass Fed Beef.... Does it Matter?

Grass Fed Beef.... Does it Matter?

Vanessa Ocasio, CPT

Grass-fed meat is not only a more ethical choice, but much better for your health and even more delicious. 

American factory farms (technically known as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or CAFOs) pack animals together under inhumane conditions. In such crowded living quarters, the animals need massive doses of antibiotics just to stay alive – antibiotics that then get passed down to anyone who eats them. 

The nutrient content of the meat is also lower from animals who eat human-engineered feed (designed to make them grow bigger, faster), rather than their natural diet.
