Factory Farming, Modern Meat Hormones, Cervical Cancer And A Small Penis
Everyone has heard the expression “you are what you eat”. However, in our drug-and-technology industrial food economy based on factory farming “protein” such as chicken, lamb and beef or even fish, you may discover that you’re slightly more than simply what you eat these days. Other “stuff” may be happening.
When a guy’s voice begins to migrate towards falsetto and wee breasts begin to form, you want to be asking “what’s going on here”? When couples struggle to get pregnant… when a field mouse makes more morphologically sound sperm cells than an adult human male… when 2nd and 3rd generation women develop higher rates of miscarriage and cervical cancer… when infant boys show atrophied and un-descended testicles and undersized penis, then it’s time to look to what’s inside our food chain such as the slough of man-made estrogens like DES or diethylstilbestrol and growth stimulants used to trick Mother Nature.
Where’s The Meat? Getting consistent quality cheap meat seems a basic right to Americans. Once grass land feeding proved inferior to mass-produced feedlot cattle, delivering beef to the American dinner table would never be the same. Bringing tens of thousands of cattle into a confined space, limiting movement, keeping them indoors standing up to their knees in muck and waste meant introducing heaps of antibiotics in order to control disease and keep the cattle alive until slaughtering time.
It also meant working out chemical “tricks” to stimulate growth, such as using heavy dosages of female hormone compounds delivered to one and all cattle!
Meat Hormone History – Feeding America Scientifically. Initially, DES or diethylstilbestrol was synthesized in the late 1930s. A University of California poultry researcher discovered after a test that DES produced a curious, if not outright profound effect in male chickens. Treated males were instantly chemically castrated, changing into capons, exhibiting pronounced and juicy breast meat after their diethylstilbestrol injections! Plus, animals could be brought to the slaughterhouse and market significantly quicker… which meant lowered costs and increasing profits!
The dinner bell rang loud and clear. Treat chickens with DES and you’ve got fast-producing, lower cost chicken on America’s dining table.
All was hunky-dory until in the 1950s the FDA began processing reports that showed that low income southern state males, and dogs, were beginning to show sing of “feminization”. In other words, DES or diethylstilbestrol traces in the chicken were building up in the tissues of 1st and 2nd generation males, altering male hormonal activity, resulting in un-descended testicles, higher pitched feminine range voices, abnormal breast enlargement, a small penis, impotence, infertility and increased risk for testicular cancer. What a price for a cheap meal!
Chicken Says Goodbye To DES – Beef And Women Say Hello. Proving the brilliance of Big Government “consumer protection”, the FDA and Department of Agriculture created the necessary sort of media ballyhoo about chickens feminizing American males, with the result that DES or diethylstilbestrol was banned as a growth hormone in “chicken production”.
However, in a left-hand-doesn’t-know-what-the-right-hand-is-doing decision, the same governmental bodies sanctioned the use of DES or diethylstilbestrol for “beef cattle” production.
No surprise that beef cattle would be enhanced by DES, cattle would grow larger quicker, move to the slaughtering sheds almost a month earlier, cost less to feed and produce more profits, yet result in a continuing supply of low cost meat for the American consumer! Just like we like it!
And where were you in the “food chain”? If you had a steak in the years 1954 to around 1981, then you were munching on residue DES, antibiotics and who-knows-what-else. About 95% of total US beef production exploited the nature-bending properties of diethylstilbestrol!
What About Pregnant Women? By 1957 pharmaceutical ads run in obstetrics and gynecology publications trumpeted the claim that “you can build a bigger stronger baby by using DES” despite earlier known research that hormone manipulation during pregnancy was risky business. Who knows how many diethylstilbestrol scripts were handed out, like candy or vitamins to unsuspecting Mums?
For “DES girls”, as these offspring were soon labeled, cervical cancer and higher incidence of irregular menstruation, structural malformation of the vagina and cervix, future miscarriages, premature births and infant deaths during their reproductive future. Crazily, the bad news that finally revealed that DES was a huge marketing sham also included news that it could be used as a “morning after” pill to terminate pregnancy!
World Views. No wonder that Europe banned US beef imports in 1989 due to fear of the drug-laced beef production habits of American producers. “You don’t want us… then we’ll take our beef to other markets” came the instant reply from American producers who let no grass grow beneath their feet when turning to Asian and South American markets. When the price is right, hormone free beef no longer is the issue.
