It is hard to get hard and fast proof about things like this. Science is not always completely straightforward, and studies of the effects of all of these things that we are eating in the modern era take a long, long time to figure out. And it's really hard to get a controlled study.
But I'm not going to sit around and wait to find out in 10 years that such and such thing I've been eating causes some awful chronic disease.
The best way to avoid it?
Eat food in as natural state as possible.
Cows that eat grass and aren't flooded with hormones and antibiotics. Free range, cage free chickens that don't eat other chickens. Tomatoes that aren't coated in a thick layer of pesticide. Food that hasn't been mummified with preservatives. Food that looks like food. You know what I mean.
So if antibiotics really do cause our bodies to tend towards obesity? And you're eating beef and chicken full of antibiotics? And feeding it to your kids?
It's a battle with all the odds stacked against us.
So, I eat less meat and pay more for meat without antibiotics and hormones. And if a majority of us did that, they might just stop putting that crap in our livestock.
Have a great weekend everyone <3
