The food we eat is important to our health and ability to feel awesome! And, the things our food has eaten or been forced to ‘take on’ is just as important.
This post (and video when you read further) is about Fox ‘News’ journalists being fired for discovering Monsanto putting Bovine growth hormone in cows, which of course is then passed on in some for to the humans consuming that cow’s milk or meat. Why care? Bovine growth hormone is linked to causing cancer, and Cancer is bitch.
Some general advice on selecting the food you put inside your body, which then becomes part of your body (and mind…)
Go for Grass-Fed beef when possible. Pasture raised beef means it might/probably has been fed grain though will have lived a better life than the meat labeled as just ‘Beef’. If it doesn’t brag about being organic, grass-fed or wild then it has probably received hormonal treatment.
Likewise, (especially in the USA) fish, veg and fruit that are not labelled as organic or non-GM are probably Genetically Modified or farm raised (terrible conditions for fish).
Farmers markets are a pretty safe bet, though it is worth checking how the farmers market is regulated and by asking the sellers about their products – this might sound a little over the top though the reality is, 3 years into my world travels, focused reading and interviews that more and more we need to check and check again about the origin of the food we are eating and the food that our food has eaten.
Anyway, here’s the video on Monsanto and Fox ‘News’:
