Grassfed Nation

£9.99

For years we’ve been told that, thanks to their high saturated fat content, the foods for which evolution has adapted us – grass-fed meat, grass-fed dairy products, eggs from hens running on pasture – are unhealthy. In their place we eat processed factory foods – and we’ve witnessed a growing epidemic of disease, from type-2 diabetes to heart disease and cancer. But saturated fat is not the cause of heart disease or diabetes. Far more likely causes are sugar and refined carbohydrates, low-fat spreads and vegetable oils. The really healthy foods turn out to be the ones our grandparents knew to be the best. We can make sure that the meat, dairy foods and eggs we buy come from animals grazing on or running in pasture. This will also put life back into our soils and wildlife back into our fields and hedgerows. This book is an urgent manifesto for grass-fed foods – for your health and for the planet.

Description

For years we’ve been told that traditional foods are unhealthy because of their saturated fat content. In place of grass-fed meat, grass-fed dairy products, and eggs from hens running on pasture, we now mostly eat grain-fed meat and processed factory foods – and we’ve witnessed an epidemic of disease, from type-2 diabetes to heart disease and cancer.
Modern agriculture has locked us into an unhealthy, vicious circle, with degraded foods pouring from an overstretched, impoverished landscape.
There’s a simple remedy: the grass-fed movement. We can make sure that the meat, dairy foods and eggs we buy come from animals grazing on or running in pasture, as they always used to. This will also put life back into our soils and wildlife back onto our farmland.
Graham Harvey, agricultural advisor to BBC Radio 4’s The Archers, lays out all the arguments for grass-fed food – why it’s good for us, and why it’s good for the planet.
