Beef is a great protein option. However, factory-farmed beef has higher levels of omega 6 fats. A high intake of omega 6 fats has been linked to increasing obesity rates, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Always choose free-range, grass-fed beef. The animals enjoy a much better quality of life too so you can feel a lot better about your food choice.
Note: Thankfully, most New Zealand beef is still grass-fed.
