Is Grassfed Beef Really Better For You
Yes: Just as "you are what you eat" cows are what they eat. Their natural diet is grass. Corn is an unnatural food for them & these days most cows are fed toxic pesticide-laden gmo corn.

Higher than cooked: Cooking destroys many disease causing micro-organisms so your chances are higher with raw beef than cooked. Cooking does not destroy some toxins associated with food-poisoning so if the beef was not properly processed and refrigerated prior to cooking, so it's not 100%. Grassfed implies the cow was not crowded in a feedlot but even that may be misleading. Buyer beware! ...Read more
Not bad if lean: Lean beef is not bad for one's health, as long as it is consumed in moderation. Your leaner cuts of beef include the filet mignon and new york steaks.

No: Sweetbread is the pancreas. First, any beef product is unhealthy. There is no reason to ever eat that. There are many other dining options out there. Second, you increase your fat intake (particularly the pancreas compared to muscle meat), cholesterol, and inflammation, especially if it's not organic, free-roaming, vegetarian-fed (what cows naturally eat). ...Read more
Not much: Rare beef occurs when the cooking does not denature the red myoglobin in the beef. In this country beef is inspected and certified so disease is unlikely from poorly cooked beef.

No consensus but...: There is absolutely no consensus on this. One thing I can say is there is no need to eat any at all. Vegetarians & vegans would say none & a large body of evidence points to reduced risk of heart disease & cancer & longer life in those who are vegetarian. If you do eat beef I advise only grass-fed meat. Beef fed gmo-corn & given hormones/antibiotics is very unhealthy to eat! See my comment:. ...Read more

In moderation: As with all things in life... do everything in moderation. Beef is fine, but that depends on how much beef one eats over time. For example, 4 ounces of beef every day is fine. But, 40 ounces of beef every day is an abnormally huge amount. Life is about balance. Balance is what matters. ...Read more
