What Is That Pink Stuff?

I didn’t even get a chance to put my briefcase down at my desk.
My researcher K.D. just about ran into my office.
“Dr. Sears, do I have a story for you!”
K.D. doesn’t ever get excited, so I was kind of curious. “What happened?”
“Well, I went to Maine for my vacation this summer because my family lives up there. My cousin lives near Acadia National Park. Just down the road there’s a family that has an organic farm.
“Every year, they have a big party. Like a farm-to-table kind of thing. They raise money for charity and have a big tent for the dinner. My cousin’s never been able to go because she’s never had anyone to go with. So I drove over and we went to the party.
“Before the dinner they have a tour, and show you where all the crops come from, and all that. They raise cows there, too. Some are for milking and some are for … you know … eating.
“Before the tour they ask you if you want chicken of beef for dinner. I would usually have the chicken. But I thought, what the heck, I’ll try the beef …”

Antibiotics in Your Dinner?

You’re in the “meats” section of your local grocery store, doing just what modern diet advice advises. You’re looking for the leanest cut of meat you can find to feed your family for dinner.
Unfortunately, even though you are trying to do the right thing, it doesn’t matter which cut you choose. You’re still going to get an overdose of hormones and antibiotics.

Missing Link Ate Meat

Vegetarians aren’t going to like it. But the evidence is now complete. We were meat-eaters for the entire 100 percent course of human evolution going back millions of years. In fact, we ate meat even before we became human.

Should You Eat the "Other White Meat"?

You may have seen pork marketed as “the other white meat.” Many cuts of modern pork are indeed quite white and getting lighter all the time. Yet the cuts of pork from the farms around where I grew up varied from pink to reddish brown.
Today’s pork is also a lot drier and less flavorful than my grandfather’s pork. The pigs are a lot different, too. Gone are the fat-laden huge hogs that weighed two thousand pounds. These days, the industry equates leaner with better. But with all this dramatic change, do we really know how healthy these new products are?

Converted Die-Hard Vegetarian

More and more die-hard vegetarians are becoming meat eaters. Why the change of heart? It’s simple: They’re plumb tired of being sick and tired.
“For 14 years I felt sick, nauseated, and bloated,” says Lierre Keith. She’s the author of The Vegetarian Myth, one of the most important books on this subject. “Anything I ate became a bowling ball lodged in my stomach.”
Her stomach was distended because her digestion was damaged from her vegetarian diet. To fix it, she had to return to eating meat…

History Lesson for Vegetarians

Our ancient ancestors ate meat. They prized it above all else.
I find a sort of evidence for this myself when I travel to areas of the world where men and women are still living in nature, unaffected by the western world.
I’ll be traveling back to the Amazon jungles of Peru this summer to live among the native Ashanikas, and I’ll tell you all about it. Not only do they eat meat, but they’re doing much better than the natives who have switched to a western-style diet.
This has probably been our history for millions of years. Vegetarians like to think otherwise, but a recent discovery may prove them wrong…
