A big question in today's nutrition circles is whether you should choose foods from grass or grain-fed cattle. Here in the United States, we think very little about the types of feed the animals we consume eat. In modern-day, conventional dairy farms, cows will be given a grain-based diet, and treated with antibiotics and growth hormones so they can be used for meat or dairy production as quickly as possible. This strategy may be profitable to producers, but creates an unhealthy dynamic within the cow. Meat and dairy products from cows that are grain-fed, have been found to be significantly lower in nutritional quality than from grass-fed cattle.
Today, over 80% of all antibiotics are used in the production of food. Overuse of antibiotics in cows is leading to the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria—a major challenge for our future health industry. Without the ability to treat bacterial infections, humans and animals will suffer. The future health of your own body can be greatly affected by the food choices you make today!
Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) is a synthetic growth hormone that has been used in dairy cows since the Food and Drug Administration's approval 1993. Growth hormones produce cell growth and increase lactation within cows, thus enhance the profit of dairy farmers. A major concern with consumption of dairy products from cows treated with rBGH, is that this may stimulate cell unnecessary growth within the human body. Uncontrolled cell growth may lead to tumors or even cancer.
Nutrology's protein powders are sourced from grass-fed cows, not treated with sub-therapeutic antibiotics or artificial growth hormones.
