Much like humans weren't meant to ever eat grains, neither were cows and other grazing animals. There is plenty of information out there, that grain fed cows are less nutritious (grass fed will be richer in Omega 3 fatty acids, have more vitamins, and more 'good' cholesterol). Not to mention the ethical issues of how grain fed animals are treated. I don't know about you, but I will never, ever become a vegetarian. But I do see a point from some vegetarians, that some animals are treated poorly to be raised as livestock for us to eat. Grain fed cows, who spend their lives sitting in cages being stuffed with unhealthy grains and starches to fatten up, are a sad case indeed. I have nothing against killing an animal to eat it, but I at least don't want it to be tortured for its entire life until then.

Here's some quick info on the subject. Do some googling, there is tons of information out there. Buy grass fed if you can!

SkinnyPupp: What kind of meat do you eat? Organic grass fed beef or the regular beef?

Goo3: search "toxic steaks" bt underground wellness on youtube and you will find the answer.

The beef I buy is locally grown in Hong Kong. Unfortunately I don't really know what they feed them.. But I don't really have a choice, so I live with it. I do eat a shit ton of veggies, fruits, and fish, so I try to make up for the shitty quality of the food here.

Whole grains are much better than the other crap they gave to kids such as captain crunch, with all the fiber kids will be pooping away.. its a better choice.

I think that before we jump directly to any conclusions regarding "what humans used to eat way back when", we should look at the common fallacy that states that what we used to do in the past is how we should do things now.

http://anthroslug.blogspot.com/2009/...n-fallacy.html

That's not to say that we can't go back and see what was eaten back then, and then test to see whether it works now. It's just that we can't use that argument as fact/proof that it is the be-all, end-all of nutritional guides.
