Westerners should be afraid to eat raw beef IMO. Considering how poor quality most of it is. You have to look hard to find a good source.

False. Grassfed beef isn't that hard to find, and meat-handling practices in the US are generally very safe. That doesn't mean it's smart to eat conventional beef regularly, but the problems from it are not related to food poisoning or parasites.

You're 100% correct.
However many Americans don't even know grass fed beef exists. Majority of the people shop at walmart/Kroger/shop rite ect... I believe fear of eatin meat sourced from these places is reasonable.

Because of the poor quality of the meat, not because of parasites or food poisoning.

I'm not knowledgable in that area. I'll take your word for it!

I encourage you to research it on your own, if you are curious.  I can offer multiple lines of evidence for this assertion.

Plenty of primal dieters start with no meat. Some like you don't feel comfortable about the idea of raw meat, but want the benefits. It's better to start with raw eggs anyway, that can help get the digestive tract ready, if it's not already.

Eating fish (it's always saltwater) on the primal diet without other landmeat is alright, as long as you're eating all the rest of the diet. Did you see the suggested menus in RFLWD? Like one of the others above wrote, after a while you feel comfortable with the idea of land meat, and you'll start eating it.

Don't make your whole diet fish. Even the inuit don't do that.

Too often we get caught up trying to get to the end. What is most important however is to discover the beginning. We don’t solve problems or start to heal unless we can be willing, be kind, laugh a little and commit to seeking until we find. If we can, we’ll get started. I’ll meet you at the beginning!
