I have heard Mel say that he believes kosher meat is the cleanest and healthiest meat you can buy. After reading Justin's post I can definitely see why.
Just think about the following that I copied from Justin's post:
"The kosher slaughtering process does not frighten the animal. A frightened animal produces a lot of stress hormones and adrenaline. These hormones stress your adrenal glands and put your body on edge when you consume meat from an animal killed in a modern factory operation. In a kosher slaughter house, utmost care is taken to to respect the animal and painlessly kill it."
Wow! I had no idea that stress hormones from an animal frightened at the time of slaughter stressed the adrenal glands of the person eating it. That fact alone makes kosher meat a better option, but there are several other important reasons given by Justin in his post.
I hope everyone will take the time to read this thread and learn more about kosher meat.
Please research the ingredients in the food products before you purchase them. There is "No One Size Fits All" when it comes to food. I have found that some organic products contain unhealthy ingredients. If a product states it is sugar free; find out what type of sweetener they are using in place of sugar. Deanna posted a website that may be helpful as you research certain ingredients. If you do not know the ingredient, try to google it before deciding if it is okay to eat.
May God Bless you and your family as you begin this journey back to health.
In Christ Love,
