Protein (essential nutrient) The source of your protein is critical. In earlier columns I talked about meat and poultry products in our food chain, and I reminded my cancer survivor colleagues, to be particularly diligent because more and more toxicity is surfacing and our government does not have a mandatory recall policy. This calls for a little more dot connecting. First lets look at disease. Disease is a disorder of the body that results from the effects of genetics, or an unfavorable environment. We probably can’t do much about genetics so we’ll focus on the environmental part. In earlier columns I provided information on the use of arsenic in 88% of the poultry consumed in the U.S. I’ve written about growth hormones and antibiotics in dairy cows, that wind up unidentified in dairy products, and in fast food hamburgers. I advised about substances generally regarded as safe (GRAS list), and I touched on genetically modified organisms ( GMO’s). As an old retired Federal and State Meat Inspector, I’ve inspected many a slaughter house both meat and poultry. I’ve always known that 80 to 90% of the red meat and poultry consumed in the U.S. was female, but it never occurred to me to relate that to a hormone imbalance, or for that matter, hormonal influence. I located a study issued by the “National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences” published in 2002, that labeled Estrogen as a “known carcinogen”. Hormones are coming under more and more scrutiny and I would suggest, to my fellow cancer survivors, to exercise caution with your consumption of red meat and poultry, I’d go for “Certified Organic” The statement “No Added Hormones” on some beef products suggest that there’s an expectation of added hormones unless otherwise labeled. Actually, it merely means that they’re not using dairy cows. The statement is not permitted on poultry or pork because added hormones are not allowed. Finally, The Human Genome Project was completed in 2003. That project ushers in a new area of study called Epigenetics. Epigenetics is the study of how the environment influences DNA sequences. I’m all about food safety, so that’s the part of the environment we’ll be looking at. Epigenetics will be a great tool. Next, Carbohydrates.(essential nutrient) Remember, you are what you eat.
