  • thoughts on report "Cows fed corn, not grass, make for healthier beef"

    Hi everyone,
    I live in South Korea and while researching the quality of the beef here, I came across this article-
    Would love your thoughts on this:
    Cows fed corn, not grass, make for healthier beef » Abilene Reporter-News
    Thanks,

    The thing that I would question is if it is indeed increasing the nutrient content. The only reason I question this is because beef is a great source for saturated fat which is important in hormone production.

      So he's claiming that corn-fed beef is healthier because its fat shows more resemblance to canola oil.

      That's all I need to know.
      I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

        Ooh, ohh! It's opposite day again...but that means it's NOT opposite day at all.

        We all know corn-fed is crap. You just walked into Mass and screamed "Hail Satan."

          Hmm. A one-note article that determines what's "healthier" on the basis of "saturated fat=BAAAAD", throws up the reviled specter of "trans fats" without distinguishing between industrial and natural ones, and fails to mention omega-3 vs omega-6 PUFA content and their significance even once. Yep, that's about par for the course in today's media environment. I suppose the oleic acid thing could be a nice talking point for the grain pushers.

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

              He doesn't mention anything about PUFA content......he implies that saturated fat is bad, which is bullshit......what Cantare said.....I can't take this seriously
              The life I have today is far better than I deserve.......

                Par for the course. At least it is not the NY Times, which seems to be getting a little better.

                For anybody wondering about the transfat comment Chris Kresser has that covered here: Can Some Trans Fats Be Healthy?

                  Apparently the author of the article doesn't read The Stockman Grass Farmer.....

                    Good one. And I might add that the reader is from South Korea reading a small town Texas newspaper. I suspect he's being paid to do "search engine optimization".
