Estrogen: How much is too much? In her article, Martha Rosenberg describes many different situations in which the hormone is negatively affecting our environment, children, and health. Cases of puberty affecting children at a younger age and the link between estrogen and cancer are just a few examples she provides to illustrate a world where the hormone has spread rampantly and uncontrolled, to terrorize the world. However, her demonization of estrogen raises the question: How much of this rampant estrogen is naturally occurring?
The article lists four common foods regarded as healthy but explains how many of these items have a high probability of being genetically modified or artificially injected with synthetic hormones. While injecting animals with an estrogen-like drug called zeranol is common practice in the U.S., it not common practice around the world, with the drug being “banned for use in animal husbandry in the EU and other countries (sic).”
To have a balanced diet, it is important to know what nutrition the food we eat contains, but the nutrition of our food is dependent on how natural the food source is. Every day we have a choice, and although we can wait for the next election period to vote for our foods to be GMO labeled, we also exercise our right to vote when we support non-GMO foods.
