Look up recipes for Pork Bung - pig rectum. I imagine the texture is the same, since the esophagus and the rectum perform somewhat similar functions (well, opposite functions). Thai cuisine is where you will find pork bung. I think you should... (more)

I knew most beef muscle meat was roughly equivalent regarding micronutrients, but surprised to find that some of the cuts (according to that) really stand out! Whodathunkit?

Whichever isn't "ultra pasteurized." Not sure how it works in the UK, but most American organic milk is ultra pasteurized, and not good at all.

Yes, grass fed cows produce less methane. It has something to do with their omega-3/6 ratio, so they're even trying to give cows in CAFOs fish oil. See for example... (more)

They're not necessarily sick, per se, but suffer from inadequate nutrition that leads to inflammation which ultimately over time will cause infectious disease to set in.

I ask because there was a person selling what he claimed to be 100% grassfed meat and when i asked him what they ate he mentioned legumes. Are legumes bad for cows?

Legumes such as clover are good eating for cattle. They are high in protein and magnesium.

I eat roughly 3-4 lbs of beef/week. With the 3 of you let's say about 8 lbs/wk so maybe 10 weeks. Probably 8 weeks if you have guests over.

Does anyone know if the antibiotics usually used to treat non-organic cows are able to pass through the cow's blood-brain barrier? I am interested because if this is the case, one wouldn't need to locate an organic source of cow brain.

The prions from mad cow disease alone ought to dissuade you from eating CAFO cow brain. I really have no faith in the USDA or the factory farms themselves to completely eradicate BSE.

How many edible kcalories are in a whole cow (or similar animal), including organs, marrow, etc? What is the distribution of fat to protein? How does being grass or grain fed affect this?
