|British organic meat and other organic farm products are successfully produced by certified farmers, in the beautiful rolling countryside of the Midlands area, who supply only traditional and natural organic farming produce. |
Eighty percent of the animal protein produced around the world comes from animals that are either fed with feed that has been grown with artificial fertilizers and has been sprayed with pesticides, or they are reared in a feedlot or battery system where they are fed a concoction of hormones and antibiotics.
There is an ongoing debate as to just how much of these additives actually reach our serving dishes subsequent to cooking a meal, however, organic meat debaters say that the potentially dangerous chemicals do not bypass through the animals systems, but in reality mount up in the fatty tissue.
The animals which provide us with organic meat and dairy produce roam and graze without restraint and by no means under any state of affairs receive hormones, growth promoters or antibiotics. As a substitute, they are simply treated with homeopathic remedies.
Organic meat also lowers the risk of another outbreak of 'mad cow disease' as there is less chance of organically fed and raised cattle having Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis (BSE), BSE can cause Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) in humans. CJD is a rare, degenerative, invariably fatal brain disorder. CJD came under the spotlight in the late 1980's when British farmers added recycled meat and bone meal from infected cows into cattle feed and this in turn caused an epidemic.
The debate rages on about whether organic meat is healthier than ordinary meat and the jury is still out on this matter. Earlier this year, researchers found that organic meat include the same nutrients as non-organic meat and in the same amounts. The same researchers reported that the single advantage of organic food is that they contain little, if any, pesticides or herbicides. They also found that non-organic meat might contain cancer - causing ingredients, whereas organic-meat contains Flavonoids that are cancer - fighting phytochemicals, which are antioxidants and are therefore beneficial to health. Research also has proven that prolonged exposure to herbicides and pesticides used in farming can be very dangerous for people's health. There generally is no scientific evidence to prove that organic meats are safer or more nutritious than non-organic.
All organic livestock are free range, but each and every one of the free-range animals is not necessarily organic. 'Free range' means that the animals are allowed to live natural lives. They are free to roam the fields, intermingle with other animals and eat a plant - based diet. But time and again free-range animals are treated using conventional veterinary methods and the plant - based food stuff that they eat, may be full of artificial additives. Traditional and natural farmers make use of only 100% natural feed and care for their sick livestock with permitted homeopathic remedies.
Buying organic animal products is better for your health. Organic farms use 70 percent less energy than industrial farms and since they do not use pesticides they help preserve ground water. The farming techniques of organic farms build quality top-soil and do not contribute to its erosion. An organic meat farmer uses less energy with careful ecological management and uses natural ecological balances to solve pest problems.
