It also appears in head lice shampoos to kill small bugs. Why would we want to eat that??? I don’t think I need to seal-coat my insides.

The U.S. allows these gross hormones to be injected to cows because it boost milk production about 10 percent. It’s so sad. Due to these synthetic hormones, the cows become lame, infertile and suffer from infected udders. Most cows can’t even stand up due to being overfilled with milk than what their normal body would produce naturally.

Do yourself and your family a favor…..always buy organic when you can. Especially, if your meat-eaters. I know it can be more expensive but so are diseases.

Eat to heal!
