Abstract:
Offering better healthcare outcomes is often a byproduct of diet, accounting for the food source itself and its source. Meats touted as nutritious and delicious include bison and elk. Benefits of these meats noted by King are lower cholesterol content and higher levels of protein and iron. As for environmental factors that impact produce and meat quality, the author recommended preserving topsoil and balancing the soil ecosystem. Such actions can yield healthy carbon levels and grasses for animals that positively impact their nutrient output.
