Food is a basic necessity, people can never live without it. On the other-hand, not all food we eat can give us total health, there are food not matter how delicious it might be can harm our physical bodies worser than we can ever imagine.
There is nothing wrong if we will take safety measures even in our food intake. The more we protect our health, the better people we become. It is because the food we eat reflect in our physical bodies, if we eat food with too much calories, we are bringing our life into danger, to quote high-blood and heart attacks that cases that keeps on growing every year.
In life, options are always given, it is just a matter of how we will deal among things that comes our way. Likewise, having a good health is also an option; for good health is a collaboration of our food choices and as well our discipline with our bodies.
One of the most love food sold in the market is beef, a very delectable meal when cooked into steaks and stew, but can be unhealthy enough if the consumer will not choose the right one to be served for dinner. Beef is just beef, do beef have differences? Yes they have, there are the conventional beef which are usually seen in the market stalls, and there are “organic beef”—a meat that guarantee not only taste, but also health to its diner.
An Organic Beef is called “organic” because of one simple fact: it is natural. Definitely, there are no antibiotics and hormones added to hasten its growth. An organic beef is basically raised in farm wherein the cattle can freely breath fresh air and roam a vast grassland where food for them is plenteous. What are the differences of a conventional beef to an organic beef?
Conventional Beef are:
- Grown into an concentrated-cattle feeding operations.
- Given hormones to promote faster growth.
- Fed with grass and grains sprayed with pesticides and fertilizers.
- Dosed or injected with antibiotics.
- Sometimes have restricted access in plains or grasslands.
Likewise, Organic Beef are:
- Born and raised in an organic pasture where lineage is traceable.
- Never dosed or injected with antibiotics.
- Never given hormones (Growth is through natural process.)
- Fed with healthy grass and grains from a wide grassland.
- Freely to roam in farmlands.
- Having direct access to fresh air and regularly provided with a clean water.
An organically produced meat has more health benefits than the conventional ones. Since the cattle is not forced to grow through injections and different eating habits, meat consumers can enjoy a natural staple wherein there is no hazards of negative side-effect. Not to mention that the taste and nutrients of an organic beef is fuller and plentiful.
