See this interesting article on the "study" and other factors that caused these overblown fears.
Sorry to hijack. _
I just have serious ethical issues with growth hormones being put in the foods we eat. and the animals being given antibiotics as a matter of daily life rather than when they are sick. I talked to a lady in a pet store a few weeks ago that told me her dog has to be on a dog food made from organic meat, because he's allergic to the antibiotics in the meat. why can't we just give them medicine when they are sick, rather than "just in case"? I *so* want my own place so I can raise my own meat and eggs. It'll be worth the heartbreak when they go, to know everything they have eaten and every medicine they have received.
