All the above brings me back to the USA and the debate about grass versus corn fed beef. First, though, you need to sort through whether you can afford those organic and humane kept cattle, and what breed, like Angus and Wagyu (yes, also sold in the USA, but almost never from Japan). However, Japan has exported to the U.S. wagyu stock, and the photo above is from the Chisholm Cattle Company in Texas. Clearly, the fat from grass-fed varieties are safer for your health, with more omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, vitamins A and E, higher levels of antioxidants and up to seven times more beta-carotene. For those not into nutrition, these are pluses. Read the details here. Thus, grass-fed beef is good for your health and, also, for Planet Earth. Some of this sounds almost fishy to me, for that Wagyu Japanese beef is fed grain, like corn, and also claims the same features as grass-fed beef in America.
So to conclude, the inflation adjusted price of beef has DROPPED over the past thirty years. Why didn't USA Today point this out?
