In all industrialized countries, most meat, chicken, and dairy products contain growth hormones (foreign estrogens), that are used by farmers to increase profits and at the expense of our health. In addition, pesticide residues and many other petrochemical compounds with estrogenic properties are consumed in the food that is given to these animals and are consequently concentrated in the milk and fat of the meat.
These harmful estrogens are then deposited in our fatty tissues and on estrogen and progesterone receptors where they have been shown to interfere in the proper utilization and production of natural progesterone & natural estrogen. They have also been implicated in promoting other more serious health problems such as fibrocystic breast disease and female-specific cancers.
There are, however, “good” estrogens available in our food supply. By replacing animal proteins with saponin rich plant foods such as fermented soy products we can introduce phytoestrogens (genistein), which have a higher affinity for estrogen receptors than “bad” estrogens and have been demonstrated to have protective influences against endometrial & breast cancer.
