Now lets look at omega-3 fats, the beneficial fat that most people dont get enough of. For comparison, Ive added salmon to the graph. Grass-fed beef has more omega-3 than grain-fed, but its dwarfed by salmon. What can we conclude from this? If you eat chicken with any frequency, say once a week, grass-fed beef will not decrease the amount of omega-6 fats that you consume. The chicken in your diet will overwhelm any decrease in omega-6 from eating grass-fed beef. If you eat any salmon at all and this is generally true for eating any type of fatty fish you would get a far greater amount of omega-3 fats than from grass-fed beef. Using t he Pareto principl e, that 20% ofthe inputs yield 80% of the benefits, youd be better off giving up chicken and eating salmon regularly, say once or twice a week. Furthermore, a teaspoon of cod liver oil has about 1000 mg of omega-3 fats; since I dont eat fish regularly, I supplement with fish oil . If you eat no chicken and importantly, eat nothing made with vegetable oil and you eat fish regularly, and you have a lot of cash, then go ahead and buy the grass-fed beef. Otherwise, as Ive shown above, youd be better off making the other changes I noted.

REUTERS/Lucas Jackson More OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday brushed off an attack by U.S. President Donald Trump on Canada's system of dairy protections, saying every nation defended its agricultural industries. Trudeau told Bloomberg Television that the United States in fact ran a dairy surplus with Canada. Trump took aim at Canada's dairy industry this week and said on Thursday "what they've done to our dairy farm workers is a disgrace". Canada's dairy sector is protected by high tariffs on imported products and controls on domestic production as a means of supporting prices that farmers receive. Trudeau said the system, known as supply management, "works very well" in Canada. "Let's not pretend we're in a global free market when it comes to agriculture," Trudeau said. "Every country protects, for good reason, its agricultural industries." Trump said on Thursday that the United States will report in the next two weeks what it intends to do with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which he has promised to renegotiate. The threat to get rid of or alter NAFTA has clouded the economic outlook for Canada, whose biggest trade partner is the United States. Touting the broader benefits of free trade for both sides of the border, Trudeau said he planned to move the trade conversation forward "in a way that both protects our consumers and our agricultural producers."
