    Eating fat from conventional meats?

    Primal Fuel
    So, here I go again with my questions... Let me say that I did in fact do a search before hand, but didn't find any answer, so here goes.

    As I am a soon to become poor student, I'm not sure I'll be able to buy organic/free-range meats all the time. I have read that animals (and humans, for that matter) store toxins in therír body fat, making it unfavorable to eat. My question is then, if this is true, and if I should go for lean cuts of conventional meat, and then add the fat in from of coconut oil or rendered free-range fat (if I have any), or I should just eat the fatty, conventional cuts anyways?

    I would eat leaner cuts of beef, since your right the toxins are in the fat- then add healthier fats when cooking.
    Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    Exactly, I believe Mark also mentions this on the blog. Get cheaper/conventional lean cuts of meat but invest in some coconut oil or grassfed butter to cook it in.

    Toxins? The cow has been alive for 18 months how many toxins can it have accumulated? Sounds like vegan scare mongering to me. You will accumulate more toxins with that meat rotting in your gut for sure!

    Thanks for your replies! I'll have a closer look at Mark's post - I remember having looked at it before, but forgot it was there.

    Chima, I'm not from the US, so Don's post does not necessarily apply to Danish rules on slaugther animals. Also, I don't know the age of all slaughtered animals, but I am pretty sure many of them are past 18 months. I'll see if I can find anything on it

    Thanks for the link to the article. Quite enlightening. Especially since I don't have a source (or budget) for grass-fed meat yet.

    Hope it puts your mind at ease. Or raise awareness at least.
