    Delicious, Nutritious beef! It's what's for dinner!

      "Americans eat more meat and protein than most other nations in the world. Americans also lead the world in cancer, heart disease, arthritis, obesity, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis. . . . and other degenerative diseases. Heart disease is our greatest killer".

      - Paavo Airola, Ph.D.N.D.

      ____________________________________________

      Check out, The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted, The CHINA STUDY, by T. Colin Campbell. PhD and Thomas M. Campbell 11, MD.

      Feed your brain every now and then too, but don't let me hold you up - you must be "dying for a burger" about now.

    Recent reports from the regime of our dear leader has shown agriculture to be one of the industries that has weathered the recession, despite his attempts to destroy it with regulation and taxation.

    Sure, according to Airola (A Finnish raised and educated non-M.D. who came to our fair country via Canada) we "Americans eat more meat and protein than most other nations in the world. Americans also lead the world in cancer, heart disease, arthritis, obesity, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis. . . . and other degenerative diseases. Heart disease is our greatest killer"

    I'll tell you what we don't lead in and isn't a huge "killer": Hunger.

    This nation is overfed on garbage and the obesity problem is proof of that. Being overfed kills too! And in time, the destruction of land and rivers will affect everyone, but this is a very complicated situation and one really has to give a damn to LEARN.

    To Rusty and Diana

    Rusty, corporate farms are paid to not grow certain crops and/or subsidies to grow others, not proper farming in my eyes but that's the system and it's been in place for 40 plus years, a lot longer than the current administration has been in office.

    Hunger is not a huge killer in the USA but the number of children going to bed hungry every night is increasing and yes I contribute to the local good banks.

    Diana, my heart attack in 2011 was caused by 32 years of smoking, a habit I ceased "cold turkey" in 2000. My cardiologist told me if everyones' heart looked as good as the other 80% of mine he'd be out of business. My bloodwork in April 2012 showed me to be in above average health for a man in his mid 60's who stands six feet and weighs in at 200 pounds, I eat either beef, chicken, pork or fish everyday, the health problems in this country are from poverty, too little activity and in way too many cases a lack of health insurance, not protein.

    Am I an exception to the rule, perhaps, but you cannot say protein is the reason for this country's ills.

      I wholeheartedly agree, Diana may not want to admit it, but we're not that different, it's just our perspective on this that differs. There is nothing worse than commercial feed lot beef, pork, etc.

      I shop organic, local and with farming practices in mind. There is nothing better looking than a 1 1/2" thick NY strip from a humanely treated, grass fed cow. Delicious!
