The health benefits of protein are pretty clear. It helps the body build and repair tissues, allows metabolism to function well, and it also helps in maintaining proper pH and fluid balance. Animals, like cows, are a good source of protein. Many argue that if we care for our health and our environment, we should get rid of red meat such as beef but science says otherwise. Between the latest online fads and the crazy media headlines, it’s easier more than ever to get confused about your health. If you want to make better decisions about your health so you can feel better and live longer, you’ve come to the right place.

I read a book recently called Sacred Cow written by Robb Wolf and Diana Rogers. They put this book together about how raised meat can actually be good for the planet and can give a positive environmental impact.

Join me as we dive deep in the effect of beef in the environment with Rob Wolf.
