Breezy Hill Farm Update Feb. 2,2020

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • I think there's something going on that's out of whack.  We've had robins all winter.  There were two in the yard this morning.  They used to come in the Spring.  And our planting zone is now zone 6.  It used to be zone 5.  We may have palm trees soon.
  • Let's talk about connective tissue in meat.  A grass finished animal will by virtue of walking around to eat grass and walking to a water source have more connective tissue than a CAFO animal.  CAFO animals don't even have room to walk.  The pens are full, and they only have to eat, and water is close by.  I have considered tenderisers, but they were not of very good quality.  The meat industry got in trouble several years ago using the Jaccard method of tenderizing.  The e coli on the surface of the meat was forced into the interior, and if you wanted a medium rare steak, the e coli was not killed, and you went to the hospital. I have found a very high quality tenderizer.  We will be including it with our freezer beef customers, since cooking grass finished beef has to be cooked differently from the McBeef from a grocery store.  This will help with a more tender experience.

While oolong is healthy, it is important to use loose tea leaves. Tea bags may be more convenient, but many are made with heat-resistant polypropylene to prevent the bag from breaking apart in hot water. This means minute pieces of plastic likely end up in your drink.

Paper tea bags are treated with epichlorohydrin, a chemical to prevent tears, which has been found to be a probable human carcinogen. Epichlorohydrin reacts with water to form 3-MCPD, another possible human carcinogen.

On average, someone in the United States gets an antibiotic-resistant infection about every 10 seconds. About every 11 minutes, someone dies. That’s according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And as the Washington Post reported this week, those numbers confirm that deadly superbugs pose a worse threat than previously thought..



”the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) issued a joint statement calling for a “precautionary” moratorium on CAFOs, also known as factory farms.

The groups pointed to an “array of negative health impacts, including respiratory disease, mental health problems, and certain types of infections, and said that “government oversight and policies designed to safeguard the health of individuals and the environment from these operations have been inadequate."

Fructose, the most damaging type of sugar to your body, is particularly hard on your liver, much like alcohol:

  • Fructose must be 100 percent broken down by your liver. Glucose on the other hand only needs to be partially broken down before it can be utilized.

    Corn sugars can damage your liver much like drinking alcohol

  • Fructose is metabolized directly into fat that gets stored in your liver and other internal organs and tissues as body fat, which leads to mitochondrial malfunction

  • Fructose produces toxic metabolites and superoxide free radicals when it is metabolized, that can lead to inflammation in your liver

Fructose is a cheap form of sugar that’s found in thousands of food products and drinks. It’s often deliberately disguised by the use of many different names, so the only way to steer clear of it completely is to avoid eating processed foods.”

Vegetable Oils — A Hidden Cause of Cancer 

In a November 8, 2019, Medium article,3 Maria Cross, a nutritionist with a master of science degree, discusses the science behind vegetable oils and what makes them carcinogenic. She explains:

“There are two classes of PUFA: omega-6 and omega-3. Although functionally distinct and non-interchangeable, these two classes are perpetually engaged in a metabolic balancing act, pushing and pulling as they compete for absorption in the body.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with omega-6 PUFAs: we need them … If omega-6 fat is essential to health, it makes no sense that it can also cause cancer …

That’s why scientists believe that it is not omega-6 per se that is to blame; it’s the balance between the two groups of PUFA that is out of kilter and wreaking havoc on our bodies. We evolved on, and are genetically adapted to, a diet that provides more or less equal amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 4 … 

With the industrialization of our diets, and the vast quantities of vegetable cooking oils that go into them, the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 has shifted enormously and we consume up to 25 times 5 more omega-6 than omega-3 …

There can only be consequences, and indeed there are: experimental data 6 supports the theory that it is this skewed balance between the two PUFAs that influences the development of a tumor.”
