Genetically Modified Food
That cycle of genetically modified toxin is then passed on to you in your meat. This brings us to beef sold in markets and in fast food chains. The artifical growth hormones in beef production poses a potential risk to human health. These six hormones include three which are naturally occurring: Oestradiol, Progesterone, and Testosterone; and three which are synthetic: Zeranol, Trenbolone, and Melengestrol. People have also questioned whether hormone residues in the meat of "growth enhanced" animals can disrupt human hormone balance, causing developemental problems, interfering with the reproductive system, and even leading to the developement of breast, prostate or colon cancer. Fast food chains such as Mcdonald's claims to use '100% beef' though, that isn't entirely true. Americans are literally bombarded with ads for McDonals, Burger King, and Wendy's. Icons like Michael Jordan to Drew Bledsoe are featured in Mcdonald's ads.. Even children are lured into their restaurants with the indoor playgrounds, and 'must have' toys. Little do people know that consuming fast food can cause serious health damage. 52 million people are served at Mcdonalds daily, worldwide. 27 million americans out of that 52 eat Mcdonalds daily.
