Now I don't know much about the preservatives so there might just be something in there that's not the best, and there's no arguing that it has a substantial amount of sodium, but just how amazingly healthy does your diet have to be before something like this throws it off?

you read the link piratejon posted.
They are the same, but different*
jerky and slim jims both include salt and meat. that's about all they've got in common.
and comparing jerky to hard tack? come on, man.
proper jerky is, in moderation, an entirely reasonable component of a balanced diet. it's an excellent thing to have on hand for the drive home from the gym, in particular.

If you're in the United States, I would stay away from beef completely unless you can verify it's grass-fed beef. Since corn is subsidized by the government, beef steers in the US are corn-fed which is not a natural diet for them. To keep them from dying, they get pumped full of hormones and antibiotics. In essence, the beef steers are malnourished, so the meat isn't going to be all that nutritious. Plus, the antibiotics contribute to the larger problem of antibiotic immunity.

Eat Wild lists were you can get grass fed beef in your area, or shipped to you.... I've found it in Florida for $4.50lb for a 1/4 steer, which is around 150lbs processed. That includes paying a Usually only 20lbs of that will be ground, so it works out, as you get steak and what not included. The prices go down to as low as $4lb for a whole steer.
"2006 Grass-fed Angus Family Grade
Whole Beef: $3.50/lb.
Half Beef: $3.75/lb.
Quarter Beef: $3.95/lb.
The USDA requires that we sell our beef by carcass hanging weight. This means that you do not pay for the hide, head or legs of the steer, just the food grade part. Average weight for a whole is 600 lbs. Beef is cut to your specification. There will be some loss on your carcass depending on how you wish it cut. A cut sheet will be mailed to you after receiving your deposit. South Marion Meats is our processor and will charge you .45 per lb. plus a service fee of $30 per whole steer, $15 per half and $7.50 per quarter to cut, wrap and freeze."

>>Did you just read The Omnivore's Dilemma?
No I didn't, but I'm about to.
I got that info from my father who just had to have a piece of his colon removed. He was told all about the dangers of beef.
