E-Coli and other dangers are just part of our traditional beef industry, but it doesn't have to be this way. Many farms and ranches have begun to change the way they raise their cattle by moving to all grass-fed and away from the standard practice of collecting the animals in confined pens and fattening them up for the last few weeks of their lives - this is the main cause of disease and the reason why non-grassfed animals are often given doses of antibiotics and such.
Here is a quote from a new article that discusses the issue and the recent E-coli breakout in Canada: “If you are raising grass fed beef there is an 80% less chance of having
E. coli O157. If the plant is only geared to slaughtering grass fed
beef then the chances of E. coli entering the plant is basically nil,”

ABOUT THIS BLOG
The Modern Paleo Meats - Blog is dedicated to raising the awareness of the health benefits of eating 100% grass fed buffalo, lamb and beef products from animals that have been 100% pastured and never given any added hormones and antibiotics. I promote the idea of the re-emerging animal husbandry practices of animals living off the land and roaming free - this turns out to be better for the animals and for the environment. Eating this type of lean red meats is promoted by the Paleo, Low-Carb and Gluten-Free diets - so this blog will also explore Paleo Lifestyle topics, suggestions and recommendations for how to eat and exercise consistently with these regimes. Articles, comments and thoughts expressed by this blog are opinions and beliefs and should not be taken as any type of medical advice. Online store: www.ModernPaleoMeats.com
