Choose Organic Meats
So now that you're convinced to eat organic, where to begin? According to Dr. Joel Forman, eating organic meat is the first step. While many moms (and moms-to-be) choose organic milk because they are concerned about hormones (like recombinant bovine growth hormone) in cow's milk, Dr. Forman argues that rBGH is primarily destroyed in our stomachs. The bigger issue is that cows that receive rBGH are more likely to get uteritis (a condition like matisis), so they receive antibiotics that seep into their meat, which we then eat. So buying organic meat is the first step.
