Also, where does our meat really come from?
The meat you eat on a regular basis probably comes from just a few animals, such as cows, pigs, and chickens.
Similarly, what is really in ground beef? The Basics. Ground beef generally consists of the leftover trimmings from steaks, roasts and other beef cuts. "Ground chuck" is made only with chuck trimmings, "ground round" with trimmings from the round and "ground sirloin" with sirloin bits and pieces. You might see what's called the lean-to-fat ratio.
Secondly, how bad is meat for your health?
Meat and saturated fat Some meats are high in fat, especially saturated fat. Eating a lot of saturated fat can raise cholesterol levels in the blood, and having high cholesterol raises your risk of heart disease.
Is bacon a meat?
Bacon is a type of salt-cured pork. Bacon is prepared from several different cuts of meat, typically from the pork belly or from back cuts, which have less fat than the belly. It is eaten on its own, as a side dish (particularly in breakfasts), or used as a minor ingredient to flavour dishes (e.g., the club sandwich).
