That is beyond asinine...
Why on earth would you think that? Farmers have been feeding hormones to milk cows for years. High levels of estrogen cause many types of cancer particularly breast cancer. Little girls reach puberty at extremely young ages. Simple solution would be to stop feeding cows hormones. You know big ag will never do that.

No they don’t. Urban legend.

Reason children are reaching puberty faster is their diet-high in sugars and fats. Lack of physical work.

Like a plant that finds reproductive conditions f@vorable.

We should look at it as a compliment that conditions were AT LEAST created. So many people think 100 years is antiquity.

I don't understand how just one thing can be implicated in any type of cancer. There are infinite variables depending on your lifestyle, and many things that have the potential to alter our hormone balance, which is a causative to some cancers.

Microwave cooking in plastics to name one, lots of plants have phyto estrogens that are usually self limiting but can be affective for another. A woman who has had an abortion is also at much higher risk for breast cancer.

Cancer, and especially breast cancer, is a big money maker.

Are you referring to BST? It’s not fed. Most milk processors won’t process milk treated with BST-although there is no difference in milk hormone levels (%) between BST cows and non BST cows. One thing we know is that if you supply hormones in the feed (blood levels) the body produces less. What feeders do are add feed additives that animals like so they eat more and produce more. Feed quality is #1 job for feeders.

Another problem with this theory, is that cattle hormones are of no problem to humans since our bodies do not process this hormone. Kids are expressing their hormones (growth, sexual, etc) due to an improved (?) diet (calories, proteins, etc). Each generation is larger because of our diet.

Doctors disagrees with your stance.
