(NaturalNews) Do women get breast cancer more often when their hormones are thrown out of whack? You bet. Are those cases more severe than others? The jury is still out on that one. What about thyroid tumors and ovarian cancer - can those come from eating meat and drinking dairy from cows that are given hormones to make them fatter? Yes, those tumors can come from hormone overload. Do men get testicular cancer from an overdose of hormones? Absolutely.

How much do you know about steroids? Do you know if steroids are a class of hormones or hormones a class of steroids? Then, what's a steroid hormone? Overdosing on hormones can be linked to infertility and coronary heart disease.

You could be consuming hormones that are given to conventional, CAFO-raised turkeys, pigs and chickens too, so don't think that it's just red meat that's bad for you, because that's just a hoax to get you to choose the lesser between evils. Plus, farm-raised fish are given hormones to make them bigger too. Imagine animals that are given extra hormones in the last two weeks before they are slaughtered, and those animals and their relatives that suffer before they die, sometimes hearing their fellow animals scream in pain and agony - all those stress hormones are released into the tissue, and you eat that! Do you look for non-rBGH (Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone) and non-rBST (same thing, different name) milk and cheese? Do you look for wild-caught fish that are NOT in the ocean anywhere near Fukushima, such as Alaska or the U.S. West Coast? You might want to make some adjustments to your purchasing habits. Check out this list of 50 "jaw-dropping" toxic food additives that cause cancer: (http://mphprogramslist.com).

In most CAFOs, confined animal feeding operations, cows are forced by drugs to produce WAY TOO MUCH milk, and their udders get infections, passing those infections on into the milk and to the humans that consume it. Many hens are given drugs that make them lay WAY TOO MANY eggs and create health problems that supposedly justify more antibiotics. Are you eating antibiotic- and hormone-laden eggs? What about butter? Let's examine the "dose" of drugs humans get when they eat and drink by-products of CAFOs and animals fed genetically modified feed.

99% of feedlot cattle in U.S. are given steroidal hormone implants

Every year, U.S. farmers raise about 35 million beef cattle. Of those entering feedlots, 99% are given steroidal hormone implants to promote faster growth, and that's the same kind of muscle-building androgens that athletes consume. A large percentage of poultry and pigs are fed these same drugs. Did you hear otherwise? They lied. Other animals receive estrogens, primary female sex hormones, in order to shut down the estrus cycle. Cow's milk that is treated with rBGH has higher levels of IGF-1. Studies in humans, animals and cell cultures indicate that elevated levels of IGF-1 in humans increase the risk of breast cancer!

Why does it say on labels that there is "no significant difference" in milk from cows that are not given this rBGH or rBST hormone? Do they mean flavor, quality or risk of cancer? You can bet there is with the latter, but the FDA is not out to help you stay organic and healthy, so you can scrap that thought.

Did you know that many piglets are raped at industrial farms by older pigs? Imagine their depressed lives and how that affects their hormones and central nervous systems. What should you know about "veal crates" and the "debeaking" of hens without any anesthetic? You are what you eat, so if you eat animals that lead a short, miserable, depressed life, then what are YOU?

Humans are getting diseases from sick, depressed, abused animals that are shot up with hormones and antibiotics and dragged to their death. Most conventional meat is not Kosher either, so the slaughter of the animal can be inhumane.

Do government websites warn people about hormone-laden meats causing cancer? Barely do they warn you, and when they do, they slip in some more bad advice:

"Eat more vegetables, fruits and whole grains and eat less red and processed (e.g., bacon, sausage, luncheon meat, hot dogs) meats. These actions may reduce the risk of developing many types of cancer as well as other diseases."
(http://www.health.ny.gov)

What can you do to protest, boycott and help with the humane treatment of animals, and to put a stop to confined animal feeding operations? What can you do to help protect the environment and the future of farming? Have you heard of campaigns against the cruelty of animals? (http://www.catcahelpanimals.org)

From CAFO to table

People turn a blind eye so they won't have to think about the horrors of CAFO life. It's like a holocaust, you know, but for animals. Plus, most meat is bleached or ammonia-treated to kill the E. coli and then dyed back pink like hamburger and steak to look attractive in the butcher's window. They want to believe that the meat just shows up magically, without all the horrific processing and inhumane living quarters. They don't want you to believe that the animals are so fat that they can't even stand on their legs anymore, and they just lie down in their own feces, waiting to be dragged onto a conveyor belt for mutilation. It's sad but true. When you stop choosing these kinds of meat, fish, milk, eggs, cheese and other dairy products off the shelves, these evil companies and corporations suffer.

End animal suffering. End human suffering and the cancers that spread from eating tainted meat full of hormones and antibiotics. Be that person who says no to GMO and CAFO every meal and every drink!
