Hi again everyone. Here's my question for you guys and that is we type-o's need Red Meat which i have started eating now and feeling better (no more whey protein) and i know we should eat the Range fed kind but its expensive so my ??'s are does Cattle thats fed Grains in the feed lot (regular store type) will they have Grain Lectins in the Red Meat or is the Red Meat free of them and its fine to eat.

I wonder is Dr D. has ever researched this about cattle feed lectins possibly in their meat and fat. If anyone has ever researched this or has any thoughts or answer's i'd appreciate it. Thankyou harry ....

consuming meat is better than no meat at all for your O physiology.

always try to consume preferably lean meat, cause most antibiotics and hormones given to cattle deposit in the fat.

I do not find grass fed, free range etc down here either, but I do consume meat.

if you are worried about any bacteria on your raw meat, you might want to marinate it in cherry juice or prune juice first.

dipping the chunk of meat inside boiling water for a minute also helps, before you proceed to cook it the way you want to.

Grain fed beef also has the disadvantage of worse fat ratios: More omega-6 and less Omega-3. The grain isn't good for the cow, either. That's why they need antibiotics. The hormones are used to force grow them.

As Don will remind us later, there is a middle priced option like Laura's Lean Beef that is hormone and antibiotic free. Sort of middle gound (beef).

you might be able to find a local farm that sells grass fed, near you, for a better price.

Also look for and consider the middle priced option, antibiotic and hormone free meat, as Lloyd pointed out.

Yeap  thanks don........as i know about the Hormones and Pesticides in Grass fed cattle but my main thought was about Grain Lectins making their way into Cattle meat and then we consume what we think is an Excellant for our Blood type only to find out that there are corn/grain lectins possibly in it.

Still learning all this stuff so again thanks to all....I wonder if DR.D has an E-mail to ask specifically his thoughts ??   harry....

I am not an expert, but I do not believe that the grain lectin is manifested in the meat.....
Also consider lamb...I have heard that it is raised more naturally, maybe is grassfed....

CLA is not present in grain-fed beef; but I wouldn t worry about grain lectins present......

Actually, CLA is present in grain fed beef. Just lower amounts.

Quoted from Beefresearch.org
The total CLA content of specific foods may vary widely (9). For example, the total CLA content of beef varies from 0.17 to 1.35% of fat (9). This wide range is related to the type of feed offered, breed differences, and management strategies used to raise cattle (9,20). Grazing beef steers on pasture or increasing the amount of forage (grass or legume hay) in the diet has been shown to increase the CLA content in the fat of cattle.
