Reasons to Switch to Grass-Fed Beef and Dairy

Story at-a-glance -

  • Organic, grass-fed standards do not permit non-medical use of antibiotics. With antibiotic-resistant disease being a major public health hazard, buying organic meats is an important consideration
  • Antibiotics and hard-to-digest grains radically alter the bacterial balance and composition in the animal’s gut, thereby promoting disease. It also has a detrimental effect on the nutritional composition of the meat
  • Grass-fed beef tends to be leaner, and have higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and cancer-fighting CLA. It also has a healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats
  • Organic farms tend to provide far more sanitary conditions overall, since the animals are not kept in overcrowded barracks day in and day out. As a result, the animals are far less likely to harbor dangerous pathogens
  • Raw milk from organic, grass-fed cows, and certified organic eggs from free-range hens are also healthier options due to superior nutrient content and reduced risk of contamination with drugs and pathogens
