Rants, Rules & Recipes

An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RANT: AMERICAN DAIRY

I was appalled to learn that I was fed foods my entire life that were known to be harmful to me.  Sure, some food companies make “junk food” or sell  poor quality meat, but how could the FDA let companies sell food that are known to slowly kill us?

I didn’t know that our milk and cheese is ILLEGAL in other countries. Why? Because the growth hormone we inject into our cows (rBGH) to make them larger is known to cause breast and prostate cancer!

While working as a physician in New Zealand, I had dinner at a dairy farmer’s house. He explained he could only inject cows with hormones if the meat and dairy products were going to be exported to America. WTF?!?

More on rBGH

I’ve noticed that young girls breasts are way bigger than mine or my friends’ were growing up. Girls are starting their periods much earlier and breast and prostate cancer seem almost inevitable these days. But it wasn’ t until I began researching the matter that the connection between hormone exposure, precocious puberty and cancer became so clear.
