Are the hormones in milk the same as the hormones in meat? Which are safer?

Are the hormones in milk the same as the hormones in meat? Which are safer?

Different: The main hormone used to produce milk is rbst; it can result in higher levels of insulin-like growth factor (igf) in the milk. I'm more concerned about cocktails of hormones used to fatten cattle for beef including estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, melengesterol, trenbolone, and zeranol. Low-levels remain in the meat at purchase. Effects very controversial. Concern about cancer, infertility. ...Read more

I'm 11 weeks pregnant and wanted to know if it's safe to eat mangolian grill since the meat is sitting out for you to chose and they cook it for you.

In addition, mongolian grill is usually cooked at a high temperature. As long as it's thoroughly cooked, the risks go way down. ...Read more

It was suggested that this might increase susceptibility to a leprosy-like disease. But, in reality, eating these two proteins together has no health implications.

Does eating white rice with vegetables and meat lower the effects of the high GI of white rice?

Is processed meat without nitrates ok to eat? I brought this turkey deli slices it says it is preserved used "Caramelized sugars" is this safe?

Is processed meat without nitrates ok to eat? I brought this turkey deli slices it says it is preserved used "Caramelized sugars" is this safe?

Just ok: I wouldn't consider any deli meat a healthy option because of the processes needed for preservation. Usually, nitrates are used, which are transformed into nitrites and increase risk of upper GI cancer. Carmelized sugar is an alternative to sodium nitrate, but also carries with it all the adverse health effects associated with any refined sugar. Cooking fresh meat is healthier. ...Read more
