Robyn O’Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth and blogger for Prevention magazine, just shared this infographic that was [assumedly] created in the wake of the “gummy-worm-marshmallow-froot-loop-fed cow” foolishness from the other day.

    Just in terms of taste alone:

    grass-fed > grain-fed > corn-fed

    And my husband thought I was crazy for buying grass fed beef (when we do choose to eat it). Very informative!
