I'm starting to believe that eating animals other than ruminants is probably less than ideal, especially for someone trying to reduce inflammation, healing an autoimmune disease or lose weight.
The o-3/o-6 profile is one thing, but there is also the thing about their diet. We always talk about grass-fed beef, grass-fed beef this, grass-fed beef that, but when it comes to chicken and pork we seems to get stuck in our words. Naturally raised or pastured pork and chicken is what we often use to describe the ideal thing to eat, but it tells nothing about what they ate. Are they ever fed a truly natural diet in your typical local/natural/organic farm? What's a natural diet for them in the first place?
For example, a farmer I buy from sells lamb and mutton that has been pastured, grass-fed and grass-finished. They also have pork, but it is fed the whey they get from the cheeses they make. I'm sure they try their best to feed them the best diet they can, but I tend to think that the grass-fed lamb will still be a better choice than the whey-fed pork.
What are your opinions on that matter?
