    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.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    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.

    Health Correlator: Could grain-fed beef liver be particularly nutritious?

    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.
