While industrial grain-fed beef can increase the risk of heart disease, grass-fed beef does not. Here are some quotes I found from “You docs” Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz in their Daily Blog:
- “Look for the grass-fed beef that’s making its way onto supermarket shelves. It contains up to one-third less saturated fat than grain-fed beef and has some heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, too.” (May 28, 2009)
- “Like grass-fed beef, wild game meat tends to have more heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids (that’s the good stuff found in fatty fish)” (December 26, 2009).
- “Go for grass-fed. It has one-third less saturated fat than regular beef and some good-for-you omega-3s.” (June 14, 2010)
