Before I watched Forks Over Knives I penned an article for Upscale Magazine’s November 2011 issue titled “Eat Meat?: Should You Be Concerned About Consuming Antibiotic and Hormone Treated Livestock?”
As I interviewed experts for the piece I started to learn things that frankly startled me and made me start spending the extra few bucks to by grass fed, hormone and antibiotic free meat. For example, I had no idea that Europe has an importation ban prohibiting U.S. meat.
They won’t even let it in the CONTINENT.
What should that tell us?
Since then I’ve started dabbling in the FOKlife and definitely pay better attention to the little bit of meat I buy and where it comes from.
Should we be concerned?
Hell yeah. I think so.
