In Praise of Organic Meats

The consuming of organic meats is a very healthy choice for people who care about their personal well being and for the environment. The difference from industrial farms is that organic livestock gets grown in a significantly higher ethical manner, without causing deforestation and an incredible annual consume of grains. Consider the following advantages specific to organic meats.

No antibiotics, hormones or other artificial drugs are allowed for animals grown organically. Moreover, the foods such animals are fed on cannot be modified genetically according to the legal regulations. Organic meats are therefore a lot purer because of the food and the treatment that animals receive in farms. Plus, we can add here the significant safety of the products as compared to the factory produced counterparts.

For instance, it seems that the mad cow disease appeared because of bovines being fed on the ground remains of their own species. The disease affects humans when exposed to little cooked contaminated meat, the same symptoms will also be present in the human form of the disease. Organic meats come from animals that are fed naturally and thus remain safe in terms of contamination.

The treatment of the animals is also important for the quality of organic foods. In factory farms, animals are kept in very small pens lacking the possibility to move more than just a few feet away during their entire life. Animals grown on organic farms are allowed to graze and range without too much confinement.

This implies that the organic meats produced on such farms show superior biological characteristics usually reflected in the quality they provide.

By eating organic meats you also encourage the environment protection and the reduction of pollution resulting from manure. Industrial farms are often characterized as very large polluting agents; on the other hand, small farms use the manure to fertilize the soil and thus enter it in a natural circuit that is totally harmless.

Buy organic meats from local farms or organic stores that sell a diversity of products that should provide something for any user. You can choose from chicken, pork, beef or veal that are not exposed to chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers. The land on which the livestock is grown is safe from persistent chemical residues like dioxin, for instance, that passes into animal fat and then poisons the user. A good health seems closely connected with an organic diet!
