Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., has created one of the most vital books on the health of your family you will ever find, The 150 Healthiest Food on Earth. The lavishly illustrated, 358-page weighty tome gives you more vital information on foods that can keep your family healthy than any other publication I have ever come across. And I am always on the look out. I have given the book to family members and often advise it for others. I have now selected a “Great 10” list of food choices to share with you. My goal here is pass on ideas that perhaps you did not previously know about.
Grass-fed Beef: “The natural diet of cattle is grass. It is absolutely not grain. Cattle that are primarily fed grass enhance their omega-3 content by 60 percent. A massive amount of research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent certain chronic diseases such as heart disease. Ruminants like cows produce another very important fat called CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), which has long been investigated for its anti-cancer activity as well as for its ability to reduce fat accumulation, particularly around the abdomen. Grain-fed cattle don’t make nearly as much CLA as their grass-fed cousins do. About half of the fat in beef is heart healthy monounsaturated fat. Finally, most grass farmers avoid the use of the chemicals, hormones, and antibiotics that we’d like to keep out of our food.”
