The logic of grass-fed beef sort of falls apart when taken beyond the reasonable-sounding premise that natural meat is good.
Sure, everybody would rather have meat without steroids and all that man-made stuff, but the advent of all those icky things helped wipe out a lot of hunger in the world. On balance, eating antibiotic-injected beef is probably better than not eating at all.
Plus, if you are what you eat, and you eat cows that ate grass, aren’t you therefore grass? That’s what we remember of the transitive property, anyway.
Lakers’ big men Chris Kaman and Robert Sacre are new converts to the grass-fed phenomenon. Under the influence of conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco, who goes by the nickname “Grass-Fed Tim,” Kaman and Sacre pitched in and bought a cow, according to ESPN.com. And no, Bessie is not meant to be a pet.
