Grass Point Spreads the Great News About Grass During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

THORP, WI--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  Are pasture raised meats and dairy products really better for your health? The answer is yes, according to growing numbers of health experts. First, animals raised on pasture eat what they are designed to eat. Like humans, animals that eat their proper diet and that are given room to roam, exercise, and play, tend to be healthier than animals or people that are fed an improper diet, supplemented by antibiotics, and that live sedentary lifestyles, in crowded, stressful conditions. In fact, because of the attention paid to their diet and their living conditions, pasture-raised animals are better able to resist illness and disease, minimizing and sometimes eliminating the need to treat them with any antibiotics. In addition, they are allowed to grow to a healthy weight -- naturally -- rather than being forced to gain weight or produce more milk at an unnatural rate with growth hormones.

"More retailers and consumers understand that if we feed and care for animals properly and naturally we receive back a higher quality and even healthier product from them," says Chad Pawlak, president, Grass Point Farms, the country's only full line of grass fed dairy products. 

According to research by Jo Robinson, author of Pasture Perfect and editor of, grass fed meats and dairy are higher in omega-3 fatty acids, regarded by health experts as "good fats" or "heart healthy." Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), another fatty acid found in grass fed beef and dairy, has shown great promise in fighting tumors and breast cancer in laboratory tests. "October is breast cancer Awareness month and as families across the country talk about this subject we hope they include diet as part of the conversation," Pawlak commented.
