The above is true Mike, but chicken thighs, even skinless, were surprisingly high in omega 6 fats compared to lamb, beef and even pork when i compared them on nutritiondata.com.
Chicken breast was far lower in O-6s though, thats probably why the thighs taste better!

Something to keep in mind with most of the pastured/grassfed meat products is that they TEND to not receive the subsidies that typical of conventional farming. It does not take the sting off the price but the reality is that stuff is about the same as conventional grown food once subsidies are factored in.

I'll see if I can dig up some resources on this.

Great. If you want to include subsidies, that increases the effective cost, not reduces it. (improper english? oh well.)

Since subsidies draw their funding from federal taxes, that means I get to buy more expensive food while still paying taxes to subsidize crap for others to eat.

While I've always thought the argument of not supporting taxes that you don't directly benefit from is base and flawed, I find myself agreeing with said people more and more often lately; especially in situations like this, where one could argue that such tax-funded subsidies really don't benefit anyone at all, since they support the poisoning of the population.

Robb, why on earth wouldn't grass fed farmers receive subsidies? That is about the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard, assuming you are correct. (Not ridiculous as in unbelievable, ridiculous as in the dumbest policy possible.)

It's capitalism and profit motive at their best.

Beef is sold by the pound. Feeding grains makes heavier cows. Heavier cows make for crap food.

Feeding people crap food makes sicker people. Sicker people make everyone in our allopathic medical system (except the patient) more money. Doctors, Pharma, medical equipment, supplements, etc. This includes all the businesses that are connected in some way to people's health (it's hard to find ones that aren't).

Capitalism requires growth. At this point in our history, growth in many sectors relies on sicker people who consume more medical "stuff" and then don't ever get well. This approach will not work forever, obviously. The system will have to, IMO, completely collapse before change will come about in it.

Cynical, yes. Realistic, probably.

Glad I could help, MOD.

Now, if only I had a dollar for every time someone said, "But I do eat healthy..."
