Pesticides and Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH/rBST) are the two most discussed toxins that can be found in our food. Pesticides are poisonous and leave behind residues. Research has found that pesticide consumption can be linked to birth defects and certain cancers. Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone that we can absorb by drinking milk produces elevated levels of insulin-like growth factors – 1 (IGF) (site). Research has found IGF-1 has been a factor in breast, prostate and colon cancers (Mind Body Green, 2013). Pesticides are used to treat farming soils which can get ingested through the air we breathe, eating chemically treated foods and drinking contaminated water. Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormones are injected into live stock
