Love it! We have a lot of hunter friends and tend to use venison a lot of places other people use steak - more flavorful, lower fat and just generally healthier. We're looking into grass-fed beef too. We're trying to eat less meat in general, but we do love a good steak every once in a while!
Part of the reason beef is so unhealthy is that the diet beef cattle are fed to "fatten them up" does just that, plus it's unnatural for cattle to eat so much corn (their natural diet is a wide variety of grasses and herbs) which makes them prone to illness, and the crowding on feedlots contributes to fast spread of disease when they do get sick.
