Re: The Foods We Eat and what they can do.Nov 27th, 2009
I stopped eating beef and pork about 15 years ago on the advice of my doctor. I was starting to have constant pain in my joints, especially those in my hands. He told me that if I quit eating beef and pork, it would improve, and he was absolutely right, it did.
I found out from him later that the antibiotics and hormones that are fed to feedlot cattle, where the majority of supermarket meat comes from, can have adverse affects on people, and I lucked out.
I missed eating meat, a lot, then our local butcher came to the rescue, in a manner of speaking. He began to bring in local bison. Grass-fed, open range bison that were not finished on corn or grain- thank you very much. No antibiotics, no hormones, just good and very tasty meat.
At first, all John was able to bring in was ground bison. Word spread, demand grew and now we can buy roasts, steaks, and sausages too.
