Can Meat be a Health Hazard

Authors note: This article is intended for those who currently consume commercially raised meat (that includes chicken, fish, lamb, pork, beef…) and processed meat products.

Picture this: you are standing at the shelf of your local supermarket looking at the chickens and thinking “which one shall I buy?”. Does it really make a difference? You could buy two of those normal chickens for the same price as that free range organic one? In the following article I wish to outline some reasons as to why I recommend paying extra for a higher quality and ethical product.

Commercial Meat – a health hazard

Not all meat you buy is the same. Commercial meat production has sadly through greed and corruption turned a healthy product into a health hazard. Not to mention an animal welfare disgrace. This is far from an exaggeration. Commercial animals are kept in confined, cramped pens, given growth hormones to speed their delivery to the abattoir, antibiotics to stop the spread of disease from their conditions, and even fed products like genetically modified soy (mostly grown in Brazil at the expense of the Amazon rainforest) that given to humans in light of current research is very dangerous to health!

Antibiotics everywhere

Each year, in the U.S. alone farmers dump over 9 million pounds of antibiotics into the food and water supply of farm animals. This however is not intended to primarily fight or prevent disease but to fatten up livestock, which is sadly a side effect of the antibiotics (1). Grains (often contaminated with fungus or fungicides) are also used to fatten up livestock at the expense of the traditional and healthy grass feed.

Processed meats and cancer

A recent report from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute on the dangers of eating processed meats (including bacon, sausage, hot dogs, salami, ham, and smoked or cured meat) concluded that by adding 1 ounce of processed meat to your daily diet elevates your stomach cancer risks by as much as 38 %. The review looked at 40 years worth of studies on the relationship between these meats and stomach cancer (cited in www.mercola.com)

What about those dangerous saturated fats you ask?

Here are some “interesting” facts:

– Between 1910 and 1970: animal fat consumption decreased from 83% to 62%

– Butter consumption decreased from 18 pounds to 4 pounds per year

– Margarine, shortening and refined oils consumption increased 400%

– Today, CHD (Coronary Heart Disease) causes at least 40% of all U.S. deaths (2)

– The fatty acids found in arterial clogs are mostly unsaturated (74%) of which 41% are polyunsaturated (3)

Could nature has designed a product like breast milk with so many saturated fats like butyric, caproic, caprylic, capric, lauric, myristic, palmitic and stearic acids? Breast milk is the source of nourishment to ensure the growth, development and survival of children. Do you see the discrepancy in that? Unfortunately all the studies that point to saturated fat as the culprit put deadly man-made trans fatty acids in the mix.

To learn more on the truth of saturated fats and the real killer trans fatty acids I recommend you read my previous article “Fat facts: good guys or bad guys”. (2)

I hope this article has given you a strong enough reason to believe that paying extra as often as possible for a healthy, ethical, free range, hormone free and unprocessed meat product is really worth it.

real meat versus canned food?

I have two 9-week-old kittens. They are currently on wet food about 5 times a day. They have dry food out all the time that they nibble on. Water is provided which they are drinking.

They are currently being weaned off Whiskas and Felix wet food (which they were fed in foster care) and onto a higher quality wet food. I am mixing some Pets at Home (UK) "Purely" food which seems better quality. It has 50% real chicken, sunflower oil, vitamin and mineral supplements and tapioca starch. That’s the list of ingredients. It seems better than other brands. There doesn’t seem to be any byproducts or ash or corn fillers.

The kittens don’t seem to enjoy this food that much (both higher and lower quality food), but they will pick at it. A couple of times I have given them some salmon steaks and frying steak (both cooked) which I’ve chopped up. They love this and lick the plate clean!

My question is, is it wrong/safe/unhealthy to feed them exclusively real meat (beef, pork, tuna etc) as opposed to high quality canned food? I know that canned food has all the vitamins and minerals, etc that a cat needs, but is real meat actually better for them since they are carnivores? I am a little worried about them having too much protein in their diet as I know this can cause kidney problems. Also, because they are so young, is real meat appropriate? I would not feed them processed meats (ham, deli meat etc). I know that canned food contains water, but they are drinking pretty well too.

I want to give my kittens a good start in life and feed them the best.
Thanks for the answers I’ve been getting. So, what about if I give them a combination of real and canned food, all mixed in together. The real meat might make the canned stuff taste better. But then again, they might just pick out the real stuff and leave the canned stuff!

A raw diet is the best thing you could possibly feed them. They are obligate carnivores and designed to digest high protein foods, so you needn’t worry about kidney problems. Meat contains water just like canned food does.

Making a nutritionally complete homemade diet isn’t easy. Research:

http://www.littlebigcat.com/index.php?action=library&act=show&item=014 (Easy Homemade Diets for Cats and Dogs)

Raw feeding is an excellent option but should also be thoroughly researched before being attempted. There’s a lot more to it than just feeding your cat raw meat. You need a careful balance of raw muscle meat, raw organ meat, and raw meaty bones. Research:

Sausage-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Chef Albert Di Meglio at Olana Restaurant

http://www.behindtheburner.com The world’s greatest pork recipe is under wraps. Literally! Let Chef Albert Di Meglio teach you his tricks to the tastiest tenderloin you’ll ever try, using the finest, freshest pork from D’Artagnan.

“Tip: Use high-quality, all natural and organic meats such as D’Artagnan.
Trick: Lightly season your meats to bring out natural flavors and don’t forget the power of simple salt and pepper.
Technique: Cut pork tenderloin into 4 oz. pieces per person, be sure to save the ends for future use/flavoring.
Trick: Prepare pork tenderloin at room temperature so meat is pliable.
Tip: Fat is good. A 30% pork fat to lean mean ratio will keep your meat moist and juicy.
Trick: If available, experiment with extras like caul fat (which will help hold your homemade sausage together). When rolling the sausage, wrap like a Christmas present: neat and tidy.
Trick: If you don’t have time to make the sausage, you can use pre-made sausage (just take it out of the casing)
Tip: “”You don’t have cook pork until it’s dead.”” Medium/medium-rare is perfectly safe and works beautifully.
Trick: Grape seed oil has a higher smoking point and is flavorless, so it won’t obstruct the natural pork and bacon flavors in the dish.
Trick: Raisins will help balance out any bitterness in brussels sprouts.
Technique: Hold the herbs until last, otherwise they will change flavor and color too much.
Tip: If you’re vegetarian, roasted brussels sprouts make a great side dish. Simply skip the bacon, and finish with tofu instead. ”

As the leading purveyor of organic poultry, game, foie gras, pâtés, sausages, smoked delicacies and wild mushrooms in the US, D’Artagnan currently provides more than 400 products to the world’s top chefs, as well as directly to consumers’ tables. Members can enjoy a 10% discount at www.dartagnan.com
