Dangerous Hormones

In China, like in the US, bovine growth hormones are used to promote greater milk production in dairy cows. However, little regulation exists about the use of this hormones and growing new concern about their safety exists. Female infants in China who have been fed cow's milk-based formula have been growing breasts and very young girls have been growing pubic hair. Unfortunately, the culprit seems to be the hormones given to dairy cows that later enter food production chain.

It is outrageous that due to the lack of integrity of the corporations that run factory farms, people are getting sick. There is plenty of evidence that suggests that the hormones and antibiotics used in farmed animals are not safe; however, the quest for increased profit and taste seem to blind both, the producer and the consumer. This is why it is so imperative that the consumer takes a stand against the very things the contributing to making us sick. Transitioning to a plant-based diet helps us take this stand.
