Do you think that meat is just meat – and that all meat is created (and eaten) equal? Parts are parts – right? The question for all us meat eaters really is – Is Organic, Grass-fed beef and lamb, organic-raised chickens (and their eggs) on actual farms, wild fish from the rivers, lakes, and oceans really WORTH the substantial extra cost you will have to pay over the factory-raised versions? Can you just feed an animal ANYTHING (waste by-products) – and have it still be considered food (and nutrition) when you actually eat it? Garbage in, Garbage out? What’s really in that $.99 hamburger anyway?
For all those still pondering this dilemma, I offer the following TWO WORDS which should never, ever be put together ever again:
MEAT GLUE (please click for what this is and what it means for you)
Like most things in life – you get what you pay for. Something cheap now may turn out to be far costlier in the long run. If you’re going to eat meat (and I do, although not near as much as I used to), PLEASE be kind to yourself, to the poor animals (because its bad enough to be born to be eaten, let alone mistreated all your “life”), your loved ones (because they will be taking care of you), and the planet. There is a reason that some politicians are trying to make it a crime to videotape factory farm operations and what goes on there! Go for the golden rule and the gold standard – get meat from animals raised locally, naturally and organically, without chemicals, hormones, waste products, and torture – and you will taste the difference as well. It’s time to understand what “sustainable” really means!
