Is Kosher Meat healthier than non-Kosher meat?
Here are the facts on kosher MEAT. When a kosher animal such as an ox, cow or chicken are ritually slaughtered, they undergo a physical check by a kosher supervisor to see if the animal was sick as the time of its death. How do they determine their health? Based upon the Jewish Oral Tradition that was given to Moses on Mt Sinai, the Jewish supervisors check the internal organs of the animal to verify if it had any holes in the lungs, or other major organs in the body. If the supervisor finds a hole or some kind of un-natural cavity/growth in one of these vital organs, the animal is declared unkosher and unfit to eat by a Jewish religious person who eats kosher.
In today's hormone fed animals, the usual ratio in finding kosher to non-kosher animals is at the most 1 to 4, ie 75% of all animals slaughtered have been found to be unkosher. If by chance the ratio for kosher is greater, chances are that some supervisors are NOT doing their job properly at all and that you are probably buying non-kosher meat.
this is why you should find a reputable Kosher supervising agency to buy your meat!
Moslems by the way have no Oral Tradition in their slaughtering of Halal meat and never check the internal organs of the animal. This is why they consider all Kosher meat to be Halal "kosher" for Muslims to eat.
So getting back to my question, "Is Kosher meat Healthy"?
Well, if the meat and chicken you eat is free range and do not contain hormones than certainly it's the healthiest meat you can buy for your money. IF however the animal has been fed hormones, it may be kosher, and the fact that it has been checked internally for holes and lesions by a Kosher supervisor makes it healthier than most other meats on the market, but again, this is second best. Better to eat meat that is hormone free and kosher which is harder to find.
