Grain  -  feed Vs Grass  -  feed

The industrialization of the poultry, meat, eggs, and dairy productsindustry was created for making these products more accessible to the masses. It is more profitable and prices can be lowered. How ever, it comes to a huge cost to the quality of these products.

The factors that contribute to the quality include but are not limited to:

If the animals are raised humanly

If the animals are allowed to exercise and roam freely

How the animals are feed

Free-range chicken, cattle, pigs, and sheep eat plants, which these animals have consumed for thousands if not millions of years and help produce healthy meat and full of essential nutrients which include omega-3 fatty acids. Wild fish eat algae, or other fish which play in tune of how they are ment to eat.

On the other hand we have modern factory raised animals. These animals may never know what sunshine is and never have the ability to fully developed their muscle tissue in which eat. These animals are raised in factories, crowed and disgusting living conditions. These animals have been treated not like living creatures but have been feed antibiotics and chemicals to fatten then up and make them more profitable to slaughter. Further more these animals are live a life that may affect the quality of muscle tissue they produce. It is only common sense that if we eat this type of meat it will have adverse effects upon our on health.

Conventional knowledge says that red meat is bad for you and may cause horrible health problems including cancer. Well that is true if you consistently consume meat that is treated with chemical never ment for consumption. Animals raised on grain and in the factory setting have lower nutritional value and more total fat content. Their meat contains less vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C.

Meat from free-range/vegetarian feed contain less saturated fat and more healthy fats. organic/free range eggs made from hens that have a diet of insects and green plants often have 3 times the omega 3 fat content than that of conventionally raised eggs.

A little known fact is grain-feed, factory raised cows are now starting to suffer from the same alignments that humans suffer from. Many are now becoming insulin resistant/diabetic to their bad diet, and being raised in crowded, stressful conditions.

Over all it is extremely important to include into your diet healthy grass-feed/free range animal products. The quality compared to the counterpart are unmistakable, one increase your overall health while the other does little to actually increase your overall health and in some cases increases your likely hood of disease.
