What Do You Feed Dairy Cattle

Whether you decide to eat meat and drink milk may depend on your beliefs about animal rights, the environment and health.

If you do consume meat and dairy products, at least make sure they are organic. Consuming non organic meat and dairy means that you are potentially ingesting large quantities of toxins.

Antibiotic Residues

The connection between optimum health and abundant beneficial aerobic bacteria within the body is continually being revealed through research. Many diseases and health complaints such as fatigue, hormonal disturbances, foggy brain, body pain...and the list goes on are associated with lack of beneficial bacteria.

Beneficial bacteria keep harmful anaerobic bacteria in check, maintaining a healthy immune system, digestive system, and overall health.

Antibiotics destroy both good and bad bacteria, disrupting the delicate balance of bodily bacteria and ironically causing much aging and disease. Without a healthy amount of gut flora, invaders like Candida can proliferate, causing ill health and aging.

The Union of Concerned Scientists estimated in the article "Health" that 4.5 million pounds of antibiotics are used to treat humans for various illnesses, while 24.6 million pounds are used in animal feed.

Let's consider why these animals are so desperately in need of copious amounts of antibiotics. The unhygienic, factory environment obviously breeds disease.

Potential side effects to humans include:

Much evidence has shown that antibiotics can be harmful to humans, especially when taken often. When food is consumed from non organic meat farms or dairy farms, a certain amount of antibiotic is ingested at the same time.

Experts have suggested that the overuse of antibiotics in animal feed may be the cause of human drug resistance, and the development of new, more potent strains of bacteria that can withstand the antibiotics.

If antibiotics cause the spread of unwanted, toxic visitors such as Candida in humans, then it stands to reason that the same problem will occur in animals. Therefore, when we consume the meat or milk from these animals, we are potentially consuming these toxins as well.

If you consume meat or milk, make sure that it is from an organic meat farm or an organic dairy farm to avoid antibiotic residues in your food. This will lessen the body's accumulation of toxins, which cause disease and aging.

The Effects of Growth Hormones

Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that essentially tell the body how to operate and are responsible for vital bodily behaviors such as breathing, intestinal peristalsis, heartbeats, etc. Even a small amount of a single hormone can cause massive changes throughout the body.

Animals, especially cattle are routinely treated with hormones that are intended to elevate the development of lean muscle growth. These hormones contain variations of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. The synthetic hormones are said to mimic the function of natural hormones. With routine injections, the production of American veal and beef are increased by approximately 15 percent.

The Genetically engineered bovine growth hormone labeled rbGH can aid cattle in producing about 10 percent more milk than untreated cows.

If a small amount of these hormones can create a massive change in our body, what happens when we consume animals or their milk that have hormones in them?

If you believe that eating meat and drinking milk are right for you, then make sure to buy organic to avoid toxic chemicals and and physical disharmony.
