Here’s what our members have said about the presentation (in additon to giving it a 4.8/5 rating):

An unexpectd voice in the usual lineup. I thought it was worthwhile to listen to the side of the farmers. I would like to hear more about animal farms where the cattle are not romaing freely and how that method of raising animals impacts the quality of meat. I am still convinced that fre roaming cattle produces higher quality meat than animals from farms where there no room to move, no dailight. Another presentation that would address these points woild be informative.

Yet another high quality awesome presentation. The lack of proper knowledge in the public debate over health and ecology is worrying to say the least.

I also agree with Francoise, I also would very much to like to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of these issues. If @dietdoctor could help out with this, I would be very grateful.

Great talk! I totally agree with him. I’ve had all these thoughts myself. Why worry about grassfed beef if you’re still consuming seed oils? And a grain-fed steak is still immensely healthier than a loaf of bread. I have upgraded my eggs because I eat them regularly, and I can see a clear visual difference between a pastured and a “standard” egg. Yet, realistically a standard egg is still way better than a powerbar!
