General Discussion / Slanker's sprays pesticides on their pasture
« on: October 06, 2011, 06:00:51 am »
I wonder what they use for worming.  Here is the response to the enquiry by Ted Slanker:

"We work with many ranchers and we're all of the same mind set.  We are concerned about what we raise and we all eat our own meats.  As ranchers, we must be economic.  To do that requires inputs that usually include fertilizers, herbicides, worming of the livestock, etc..  Fertilizers are in no way something we should be worried about since the better the grass quality the healthier the cattle and the better eating they are.  Herbicides are also quite safe.  Some are so safe that they can be applied while cattle are in the fields!  Herbicides are targeted to particular toxic plants  (at least the cattle won't eat them) and only those plants recognize them.  Also, applications are very small such as one pint of 24-D per acre -- a minuscule level.  In addition, most have very short half lives.  In rotational grazing operations most pastures are at rest (no cattle) and that's when they are treated so by the time the cattle come around there is no trace of the herbicides.  This is a very brief explanation.  The real science of it all is far more complex.  If we get into discussing toxicity then it becomes even more complex.  In terms of toxicity drinking a couple cups coffee may be more dangerous than anything we do here.

The entire ag chemical industry is totally focused on the idea that the end product will be consumed by the general public.  Yet we hear virtually nothing about people getting sick from ag chemicals, but they are all getting sick from 100% organic things (all the time) such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds, and from eating grains and other foods that man should never eat.  In most cases people blame ag chemicals on ailments they get from mycotoxins.  The mycotoxin load in our foods is huge -- totally dwarfing ag chemicals.  Mycotoxins have very long half lives and they cannot be destroyed by washing and cooking.

I eat our meats because I know there is no problem in terms of poisons."

How many of you can tell a difference in how you feel between eating tallow and eating raw fat?

General Discussion / What type of fat breaks apart when you chew it?

I hate the chewy fat.  I have been eating suet but the type of fat I really prefer is the type that you find on the side of some steaks that breaks apart easily when you chew it.  The texture and taste is perfect.  None of my steaks are labeled so I don't know what cuts have this fat.  Is back fat like this?

General Discussion / I feel like I am at the end of my rope
« on: May 05, 2010, 01:19:49 am »
I just got back from the gastroenterologist.  I was looking forward to getting some tests done and finally getting some answers.  In short, he told me that I didn't have anything wrong with my digestive system and I needed to see a psychologist.  I have never been so offended in my life.  He said that I didn't have any signs of inflammation or bleeding and that a psychologist could prescribe something to fix my chemical imbalance.  I asked him if it was a chemical imbalance that was causing me to have chronic constipation, bloating, and undigested food in my stool and he said yes.  Along with arthritic pain in my knees, chronic pain in my back, blurred vision, cuts that don't heal, insomnia, hands and arms falling asleep at night, and every other symptom I have = it is all in my head.  This was Dr. Tarnasky, voted one of the best doctor's in Dallas.  I asked him to explain why when I eat nothing but raw beef nearly all of my symptoms disappeared and he said that it was all in my head.  I am convinced that I have pancreatic insufficiency of some kind.  Now I really don't know what to do.  I can't continue to eat this raw beef diet.  I have done it for over four months now.  Besides the fact that I find it just as bland and unpalatable as the first day I started, I also feel extremely hungry all the time, even shortly after I eat.  I tried upping the fat to 80% and protein 20% and I don't digest it as well with fat that high and it did nothing for my hunger.  I seem, to do better with a 50/50 ratio.  I tried eating until I was full a couple weeks and had to stop myself around 5000-7500 calories.  In two weeks when I capped my calories at 4500 my abdominal fat went from 17% to 25%, in two weeks!  I am so frustrated.  I was hoping the doctor was going to order some tests to see if I had gallstones or something that was causing me to be so miserable.  He also told me I was going to get parasites from eating raw beef.  By the way, my blood pressure was 101/60 and I feel better than I have felt in years eating raw.  But like I said, I am always hungry.  I only wish I could put a little spice and cook the meat a little without having problems and not feel extreme hunger from dawn till dusk.  I never had hunger when I ate a high carb diet.  It is really miserable to feel hungry constantly.  Did anyone else feel hungry when starting eating this way?  I have been eating raw beef for over 4 months now.  I can't eat fruit or vegetable of any kind without having my symptoms com back.  Sorry, I am just venting here, I have no one else to talk to... 

By the way, I told the Dr. wasn't in my head and I wasn't going to see a psychologist and he got up and said, "Good luck with that" and left the office.  Can you believe this!
