It's simple: if not eating non-grassfed/naturally raised offal means never eating offal, then by all means, eat the conventionally raised offal. However, there are better options, even in conventionally raised -- for example, I would probably... (more)

It's about the body's inflammatory cascade. Weighing out Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 and the pathway your body uses to break down the nutrients. Arachadonic acid is in both red meat and dairy and perpetuates inflammation

I get offal from the Farmer's market (grass fed beef innards), Asian market (duck gizzards, pork hearts), and a Mediterranean store (all kinds of goat/sheep innards, including tripe) close to where I live in the Bay Area.
