I'm in Australia where it's sensible to have a fear of snakes because gosh knows they are likely to be one of the top 10 world's most deadly.

With the grassfed/grainfed health difference, I read paleo websites where they talk about the omega 6 and omega 3 ratios and they try to eat all grassfed. So there are some difference but most people aren't going to get to that level of care with what they eat. I do laugh though when I see "corn fed chicken" here like it's something to be particularly excited about.

My family was on a bison kick for about two years, I got sick of it quick. The way they fixed it had very little flavor and whatnot o.O

Bananakins, one of the reasons I would not join the Christchurch exodus to OZ :lol: Not to mention the jumping spiders!!!

And as for the omega 6's vs. omega 3's, it is something I consider. :o

And as for the "corn fed chicken", they do that in NZ too, and I love it. I pass it right by :D

This has been a very interesting post to read. I have been trying to make better selections when it comes to meat, but the US labeling for meat is so confusing (and in many cases, rather useless).

I recently started buying meat from the local farm which is not labeled as 'organic' but I know that they they treat the animals with respect, and they have great variety (beef, pork, lamb, and goat). I have gotten many different cuts so far, and they have all been great!

When I do need to supplement with grocery store meat, I try to choose things with no antibiotics/growth hormones. It is not as good as the farm meat, but if the bulk of what I eat is good farm-meat, then I am better off than eating 100% grocery store meat...
