I heard today on the news than children are growing alot faster than they have before. They said it has been reported several cases that as early as 7 yrs old children are hitting puberty. They said its not conclusive but could be from the chemicals that are on the food and in the drinks they are consuming
I read an article previous to this that really concerned me. It was about a condition in young children where they hit puberty as a baby or toddler. And in this case they linked it to the Bovine Growth Hormone that is ingejected into cows that we drink the milk from. This baby was drinking formula that had cows milk in it that was injected with this Hormone.
I dont agree with alot of things that people do in general but seriously with this. They are adding all kinds of things in our food/drink to make them grow faster and to become larger so they make more product to make more money. Now they say that these things are safe, but are they really?
When I heard about the study kids are growing faster, I thought of the story above. It makes me wonder if these are related. I am one I wish I could grow my own food and make my own drinks, but only if I had the time and land. I really dont like what is in food these days and if food/drink that the FDA says is safe, why are these studies coming out contradicting with that? Can we really trust the food/drink companies to feed our families anymore. It scares me to reall know what we are comsuming
