I didn't realize until your post that this was from 4 years ago. There was another paradox thread last year... click here

Default French beef is grass fed

I once had a French chef explain to me that the reason almost all beef is served rare in France is because the beef their is completely grass fed and tastes differently when more fully cooked than does the American corn fed counterpart.
If this is true, then considering the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio of grass fed beef compared to that of corn fed beef, the French paradox seems much less of a paradox and more of an inconvenient truth. What our food eats matters.

Ive been looking at the fats and meats we eat, for about 2 years. I came t the conclusion is it all about grass fed. High omega 3 and vit A and much lower omega 6's than grain fed. I buy more Kerry gold, and more grassfed beef now.

We don't even have to look at "protective" effects when processed foods (very high carb by their nature) hit the bloodstream like a Mack truck.

Likewise, I eat less of the better food.

Just read about the Korean paradox in James Dinicolantonio's 2017 book The Salt Fix. Very high salt intake and low blood pressure.

I don't think it's the omega 3's in this case. I just don't think in the context of a non-crappy diet that there's anything wrong with cheese.
