Much do about grass fed, free range & hormones

We hear a lot about grass fed cows and cage free chickens. It’s a step in the right direction, no doubt. If you have watched “Cowspiracy” or “Food Inc,” you know what I’m talking about.

The other day, my boss joked: “If the cow is grass fed, does it count as a vegan steak?” I laughed out loud – but no.

Do these cows and chickens get massive doses of hormones to grow, get fat, and generate revenue faster?

Do these cows and chickens get massive doses of antibiotics to prevent or treat diseases, hence becoming more and more resistant to them?

How about when they are about to be slaughtered?

The initial scene of a documentary I almost watched but had to stop because it was too disturbing, shows a cow trying to escape when her friend goes behind the doors to be killed. One can clearly see the panic in her eyes and desperation in her body. Can you imagine the rush of adrenaline in her blood stream, the stress, and the fear? All this adrenaline hormone will be served on your plate in the beautiful medium rare steak you are about to enjoy.

What effect will those chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, and toxins have in your body and on your long term health?

We all should look up info on animal agriculture and factory farming.
