Does the method of killing of an animal make any difference for the paleo diet? Example is Kutha meat or Jhatka methods all acceptable as are any other butchering methods? Do they affect the quality of the meat?
Being flexible - are there health benefits? Being too flexible - health benefits or negative effects? Should we stretch everyday? If so, why?
