While there may be a tiny trace of magnesium in meat it is not a significant source of magnesium.
Magnesium is the heart of the chlorophyll molecule so leafy greens are the best source, but it is also in nuts, seeds, beans, whole grains, dark chocolate, figs, bananas, yogurt and tofu. Salmon is one of the best animal sources but beef has hardly any.

Different: The main hormone used to produce milk is rbst; it can result in higher levels of insulin-like growth factor (igf) in the milk. I'm more concerned about cocktails of hormones used to fatten cattle for beef including estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, melengesterol, trenbolone, and zeranol. Low-levels remain in the meat at purchase. Effects very controversial. Concern about cancer, infertility. ...Read more

On the news today was the pink slime in ground meat. Is pink slime bad? Is it just the blood and juices that drip off the cutting tables?
Probably bad: Pink slime is a phrase that is used to describe food-grade meat trimmings that are used as filler in certain meat products. I believe this has been happening for years. As far as health is concerned, the more processing our food undergoes the less nutritious it becomes until it is just empty calories. The healthiest food is typically freshly harvested and minimally processed. ...Read more

Is processed meat without nitrates ok to eat? I brought this turkey deli slices it says it is preserved used "Caramelized sugars" is this safe?
Just ok: I wouldn't consider any deli meat a healthy option because of the processes needed for preservation. Usually, nitrates are used, which are transformed into nitrites and increase risk of upper GI cancer. Carmelized sugar is an alternative to sodium nitrate, but also carries with it all the adverse health effects associated with any refined sugar. Cooking fresh meat is healthier. ...Read more

In addition, mongolian grill is usually cooked at a high temperature. As long as it's thoroughly cooked, the risks go way down. ...Read more

Others recommend 10 gr/day- see http://www.Thesuperfoods. Net/goji-berry/should-you-take-goji-berries-during-pregnancy I think you should not worry! ...Read more

Can I eat a 4-day-old meat pizza been wraped up in new 2450 pound fridge and been heated up for 3 minutes in a 1000 watt microwave is it safe?
I do the same thing: You remind me of me. If the pizza has no odor, no discoloration, no mold like entity on it, and when you taste it, has no sour/bitter or musty odor and taste, then it is usually ok. Most people would not eat it, but I do. Hahaha, sometimes our being too clean in the us has caused us to lose much of our immunity. Still do things with caution, if unsure, don't do it. ...Read more
