    It won't. People overreact about that. Seriously they do. They ate soybean and canola oil for years and never batted an eye. But conventional beef fat? Oh my god! I think it's just traces of crazy CW or vegetarian thinking with a paleo/primal overlay.

    Yeah, this. The only time you should ever drain and rinse is if you are going to dehydrate it.

    I do the same, also if it's CAFO/conventional meat, I may add in some good fat to replace what I drained off.

    Grocery store = Drain and rinse (mince) and throw it out

    'All the bad stuff goes into the fat' - could this be why my acne's getting worse since going primal and losing some of my own body fat? All the bad stuff being released into my body etc?
