Today's tip comes from TC:
Feeding corn to cattle is bad news. It leaves them open to infections that require antibiotics. It also alters the fatty-acid ratio of the beef. Nutritionists recommend a 3 to 1 or 2 to 1 ratio of omega 6 fatty acids to omega 3 fatty acids, but the meat from corn-fed cattle has a fatty acid ratio of nearly 20 to 1! However, grass-fed cattle have a fatty acid ratio that's in the exact range that nutritionists recommend. Eating a steak or burger from grass-fed cattle is almost similar, health-wise, to eating wild salmon.
