RED MEAT WARNING/STUDY
Today - the NYTIMES story about " carnitine - found mostly in red meat and energy drinks and supplements used in body building is responsible for an increase in TMAO levels in the blood - made from a little-studied chemical that is burped out by bacteria in the stomach after people eat red meat. It is quickly converted by the liver into yet another little-studied chemical called TMAO that gets into the blood and increases the risk of heart disease..."
According to the USDA all meats obtained from livestock are red meats because they contain more myoglobin than chicken or fish. You'll need a track like this - run daily - in quick bursts of muscular output - to try and repair cardiovascular damage caused by meat.
We grow sustainably, preserve open spaces & ecosystems, care for animals, support the arts, facilitate local products & economies. A large part of our work is philanthropic, our Horse, Hound, & Farm Rescue's mission is adopting hound dogs, wild horses, and supporting other family farms. We work in concert with wildlife preservation, artistic creations, and horticultural traditions. We were awarded a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant in 2005.
