Mike said:Organic has been shown to be LESS healthy than non-organic due to the increase of risk from bacteria in manure (fertilizer).
reader (the Second) said:Big Muddy rancher said:Was at the dentist on Monday and he was telling me how he liked to eat Venison because he was unsure of what was used on beef cattle. He felt wild harvested deer would be safer. If I could have talked while getting a root canal I would have told him that ranchers don't let their cattle in to fields that have been freshly sprayed but that deer love the pea fields and don't wait for with drawal times to expire before entering these fields. :cowboy:
Don't people realize that antibiotics and other chemicals cost money so are used sparingly in the cattle industry. I won't speak to the more industrialized chicken and hog barns. I will let them defend them selves.
I'm more concerned about CWD in venison than BSE in cattle and he should be too. CWD is widespread and appears to transmit vertically among deer and elk. Yes, we don't know it can be transmitted to humans but on the other hand, we don't know it cannot be.
