Vegetarian Recommends BEEF! By Bonnie Beardsley, MPH, LDN, RD
The fat content of beef is the primary reason it has lost ground as a respectable entrée on America's dinner table. Not only do most beef cuts have a high fat content, ranging from 33-74%, but the majority of it is saturated. Interestingly, beef does have a moderate amount of monounsaturated fats, but it is offset by the equal or larger amount of the saturated fat content.

Recently it has been discovered that the Omega-3 fats are necessary for the complete development of the human brain during pregnancy and the first two years of life. The Omega-3 fat and its derivative, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), is so essential to a child's development that if a mother and infant are deficient in it, the child's nervous system and immune system may never fully develop, and it can cause a lifetime of unexplained emotional, learning, and immune system disorders.
