Busting the Meat Myths
The American Meat Institute has recently announced the development of a new site called Meat MythCrushers. The sites's goal is to "crush the myths and provide you with referenced facts so you can make informed choices that are right for you." The AMI has equipped the site with several short videos to crush and clarify myths that have been formed about the animal agriculture and meat industry. The mythcrusher videos address topics such as animal well-being, antibiotic use and grass fed vs. grain fed beef.
The site also provides a new resource for consumers; a long list of meat and animal science professionals and experts with extensive knowledge in food production, safety and distribution. Additionally, consumer brochures are available for downloading.
I consider myself a pretty well informed consumer and even I learned a heap after I spent a good twenty minutes perusing the website. I think it's important that we all understand the values, principles and science that go into producing the nation's meat supply. Head on over to Meat Mythcrushers and give it a looksy. You won't regret it!
Until next time,
