All cattle are grass-fed and
spend about 80% of their life on pasture eating forage and grass
which is their species-specific diet and helps maximize the
nutritional profile of the meat. But then probably 98 to 99% of the
cattle are then sent to a feedlot during the last few months of
their lives where they're fed predominantly nothing but genetically
modified corn and soy. So, the label, ‘grass-fed' isn't lying to
you because the cattle are grass-fed but then they leave out the
part where it has been grain-finished. A person will trust that
label thinking they're buying a nutritionally superior product but
most of the time they're not. – Eugene Trufkin

Power Quotes From The
Where Is Our Meat Actually Coming From?
"In a competitive market, a lot of these ranchers now have
international as well as local competitors because 90% of the beef
sold in the US comes from overseas. You may even find products in
Trader Joe's that are sourced from 5 different countries. They may
say, "Product of the USA," but here's the thing with that claim; I
can buy carcasses from Mexico, import them into California, cut
them up and process them into packaging here and then legally claim
them as "Product of the USA" because it's been processed in the
USA." - Eugene Trufkin
The Truth About Organic Label Claims
"What organic beef basically means, for the most part, is the
product comes from a factory-farmed operation where they feed the
cows nothing but organic grains but even that's questionable these
days because a lot of it is coming from corrupted brokers from
overseas like Ukraine and Turkey. The grain is literally the only
difference between just a factory farm operation where they would
feed them genetically modified corn and soy. So, even if you buy
something with a USDA Organic label claim, although it may be fed
with grains, you don't even know if those grains are organic."
- Eugene Trufkin
Why Is It So Hard To Eat Healthy?
"My book, Anti-Factory Farm Shopping Guide, is for
people who want to make better conscious food choices but the whole
point of the book is to show readers just how difficult it has
become. I run into people in the holistic health circles who are
trying to optimize their health physically and mentally yet you
still see them running into these mistakes constantly. People are
buying a product, trusting the label or the claims, and just buying
it for years and years on end thinking they're getting the maximum
nutrition profile from that food group but they're simply not. My
research on this started because I just wanted to buy some healthy
eggs and it was incredibly impossible just to find something so
simple and basic." - Eugene Trufkin
