Red Meat In The Bible
"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things" (Genesis 9:3, KJV.)
Every moving thing includes land animals which were created on day six - the day when God made man (Genesis 1:24-27.)
Of course, everything was perfect. The animals were free roaming and ate the green herb. The green herb included fruits and vegetables which grew wild in the field. It includes grass, forbs, and legumes too.
In contrast to the green herb is today's factory farming or CAFO (confined animal feeding operations) system which feeds grains to animals destined for America's dinner tables. The grain that is primarily used is genetically modified corn.
As you can see, grain is not cattle's, nor any land animal's, natural diet. The red meat today that closely resembles the meat that early man ate is meat organically raised and free-grazed. Unfortunately this meat is small in quantity compared to the conventional meat that the average American purchases at his or her local supermarket.
Meat from animals that are raised according to strict organic standards and allowed to roam pastureland is superior to CAFO meat. The animals are healthy and disease free. And they are antibiotic-free, hormone-free, pesticide-free, and GMO-free (genetically modified organism.)
Organic and free-ranged red meat is also nutritionally superior. It has higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and lower levels of saturated fat than its conventionally raised counterpart.
(Saturated fat from organically processed and free-ranged animals is good for your health. Contrary to what you may have heard, saturated fat is necesary to cell heath, bone development, a strong immune system, and more. However, avoid saturated fat from CAFO animals.)
Contrary to popular belief, organic red meat will NOT lead to weight gain. As a matter of fact, it promotes weight loss and lean body
mass (muscle) gain.

When I was growing up in the '50s and '60s, there was no obesity epidemic, and children were not developing old-age maladies such as heart disease. Cancer, Alzheimer's, and autism were virtually unheard of. Living a healthy lifestyle was a lot easier. More...
