Not to mention the hormones in our meat and dairy products. frown Large numbers of little girls in our country and getting breasts and starting their menses in childhood. Earlier and earlier all the time. (My niece had to deal with this at age 9)Little boys are affected as well. Men are showing evidence of lower and lower sperm counts. Diseases associated with hormone imbalances are becoming more prevalent. It's disgusting. I'm glad organic products are becoming more mainstream and can now be purchased at the regular grocery store, instead of just the health food establishments.
