  • Non-organic organ meats vs no organ meats at all?

    What would be 'better'?

    Regular supermarket organ meats, liver in this case, or no organ meats at all?

    Thanks.

    Yes, still worth eating. Just not quite as often.

        It's a really complex question because, since you don't what's in the meat, you don't know how much to eat safely. It's going to have some degree of contamination, but it depends on what the animal ate, where it lived, etc. Some liver might have a little lead, other brands might have arsenic or something. So it's almost impossible to suggest a standard.

            I'd be careful with it... especially liver, it is the body's filter system and with non-organic raised animals you would do good to be wary of hormones and medication in it...
            Just make sure you don't eat it too much but I'd think you would do better to save up the money and buy the expensive organic organ meat less often...
            My story, My thought....

            It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

              As to the cost, one market near me sells conventional frozen liver for around $3/ lb. another place sells grass fed for a little over $4/ lb. Not a huge difference in organ meat as compared to muscle meat.

                A liver is not a filter. It does not filter and sequester toxins. It is not a storage organ. Fat is the storage organ. The liver metabolizes things, turns them from one thing to another. Turns toxic things into non-toxic things.

                The meat supply, even conventional meat, is regulated and inspected. They are not going to sell you meat riddled with parasites or diseased animals.

                Some people actually believe that conventional liver might be more nutrient rich than grass-fed liver.

                Eat your liver with confidence.

                    Organic is more or less irrelevant, you should be more concerned about the quality of animal feed and rearing practices when it comes to quality food. Organic vs non organic is really a red herring.

                      No, the liver is not a filter. But it does accrue serious heavy metal deposits.

                        Bones/marrow, fat (including cream and butter), eggs, and organs - I just have to spend the extra on organic, or better yet grass fed. And all beef, because after reading how conventional beef is raised in this country, I just don't want to eat much of it. I slack a little on chicken and pork because it's close to impossible to find good sources here without having to give up your first born to afford it.
