    Re: Growth hormones in beef

    Here are some interesting quotes related to the Framingham Study that shows how the science gets twisted around by the media:

    "In Framingham, Massachusetts, the more saturated fat one ate, the more cholesterol one ate, the more calories one ate, the lower people's serum cholesterol...we found that the people who ate the most cholesterol, ate the most saturated fat, ate the most calories weighed the least and were the most physically active. (Dr. William Castelli, Director of the Framingham Study. Archives of Internal Medicine, 1992.)

    "The diet-heart hypothesis [that suggests that high intake of saturate fat and cholesterol causes heart disease] has been repeatedly shown to be wrong, and yet, for complicated reasons of pride, profit and prejudice, the hypothesis continues to be exploited by scientists, fund-raising enterprises, food companies and even governmental agencies. The public is being deceived by the greatest health scam of the century." (Dr. George V. Mann, participating researcher in the Framingham study and author of CORONARY HEART DISEASE: THE DIETARY SENSE AND NONSENSE, Janus Publishing 1993.)

    And regarding saturated fat...

    A recent study involving over 40,000 middle-aged and older American men over a period of six years found that there was no link between saturated fat intake and heart disease in men. It also supported the contention that linolenic acid (a form of fat) is preventive against heart disease. (Ascherio A et. al. Dietary fat and risk of coronary heart disease in men: cohort follow up study in the United States. British Medical Journal, 1996 Jul 13, 313:7049, 84-90.)
    The tragedy of science is the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact. T H Huxley

    Unfortunately, organic beef is more expensive but at least the cows are well fed and taken care of.
