You can get Free Range Red meat at reasonable prices if you look hard enough - try your local butcher - The price is not so bad as usually there is much less waste - you loose much less in the cooking process so dollar for dollar it is about the same price.. I have done alot of research in this area esp. the link between hormones and antibiotics given to farm animals and products as to reverse affects - If anyone wants more details please let me know -

Did you actually say "your local butcher" - oh, now those are days gone by!!!! I so wish we had one! The ONE we did have that went out of business I requested some andouilli sausage - I had to buy 50 lbs. of it and he didn't tell me - I bought it and never went back - I gave it away as Christmas presents!

You made me spit my wine AGAIN Reanie - did you say "local farmer"????????????

Let's see, what do we "have" local - ummmm - some corn....some fruits....some tomatoes....standard vegetable fare in the summer sort of - if you keep it simple.

No farms, no dairy farms, no meat market, no seafood monger (other than what is found in the local grocery store). There is a farmer's market on Saturday morning (well, not anymore - just a few months in the summer) - but it's all VERY standard stuff.

MMMMMMMMM...I'm thinking - we have some killer BBQ joints (pulled pork, ribs) and some "fish camps" - you want it fried they got it. MMMMM....still thinking....I won't give up totally - I'll keep thinking!

I am talking to Alix on MSN and she said she had yellow beans for dinner - we can only get those in a CAN - at SOME stores, not all. There are never any fresh ones nor are there any frozen ones - strictly green beans.

And mine came from my garden. Nyah nyah! I'm really lucky with my meat purchases too, I can often get mine right off the ranch. 4H beef at its finest.

OK, done gloating. Love you Elfie!

All I can say is that eating red meat everyday, whether it be a man or a woman is not good, IMO. Who volunteers for these studies, I have no idea, but studies have suggested that red meat is not good in large or frequent amounts.

I dont understand why red meats would cause breast cancer in women. Men can get breast cancer, so where is there a comparable study in men based on eating this amount of red meat per day?
