Benefits of Consuming Organic Meats
by Webmaster, All4NaturalHealth.com
The main benefits of consuming organic meats and other animal-based food products are that they come from healthier and cleaner animals.
In most animal farming facilities today, the poor animals are raised in cramped and filthy living conditions, and not allowed to roam freely or have exposure to fresh air and sunshine.
And diseases such as the avian flu and mad cow disease are largely caused by modern unhygienic animal farming practices.
By eating organic meat, we avoid these dangerous microorganisms.
Later, after the animals are slaughtered and sliced into pieces of meat, chemicals are added to help them keep longer, as well as to help them preserve a fresh and rosy look. Isn't the latter practice just sheer deception?
Processed meats, such as bacon, ham, sausages, etc, are the worst, because they have even more chemicals which act as preservatives; many of these chemicals are carcinogens.
When we eat meat and other animal food products from commercially raised animals, we are also ingesting all this rubbish and chemicals.
It's quite disgusting, if you ask me.
It all makes common sense to me, really, and I don't need complicated studies to prove this point to me. Organic meat comes from animals which are raised in proper living conditions. They are given healthy and clean foods, allowed to move and roam, have a good supply of fresh air and sunshine, and not given any artificial hormones, antibiotics, drugs or steroids.
I would imagine they have lower fat content, and are more nutritious in general.
Note that some animal food products may be
labeled "natural", although this also does not mean the same thing as "organic".
Having said that, I am still concerned about the negative health effects caused by consuming meat and other animal-based food products. I feel that the consumption of these foods should be cut down drastically, if not stopped altogether.
