From a very young age onward, everyone hears things like drink your milk and eat your vegetables . However, you never hear anyone saying, “Eat your meat” because no one needs encouragement to eat a nice juicy steak or big delicious hamburger. Americans love their beef. But are Americans eating the right type of beef for their health? If you have osteoarthritis, you’ll want to be sure to eat grass-fed beef. Before we get into the health benefits of beef that has not been fed corn, let’s take a little peek into the life of a cow.
A little calf is born all cute and fuzzy. At first, it starts getting its nutrients from mamma’s milk. Soon, it will begin to eat the grass or flake that Mr. Rancher provides.

What is depression?
The DSM-5, psychiatry’s diagnostic bible, refers to various conditions that involve feeling sad, inability to experience pleasure, lack of self-worth, inability to concentrate, and suicidal thinking, not to mention dysregulated sleep and appetite and movement, though you don’t have to experience all these at once.
