View Full Version : chickens, hormones and growth

chickens contain a lot of human growth hormones so they grow big, fast. a lot of the time when someone eats the chicken they get the hormones too, that is why teenagers are tall now (or so my health teacher says) would this help with muscle growth and stuff?

Orally ingested hormones have little effect on us. Those chickens are injected. Big difference.

this is not true: only humans are affected by human growth hormones. growth hormones are species specific, chickens are fed/injected hormones that do not have effect on humans

they are mainly given antibiotics in addition to hormones

many chickens (fresh) are not raised in this way

chickens arent injected with them because they live in cages so their feed is controlled by the owner and hormones are put into the food

Chicken and beer both raise estrogen levels.

where'd you get that about chicken?

It's a private source. The government doesn't want anyone to know about it.
Seriously now, I don't remember but I'm sure that it's true.

Actually those chickens live in houses about 1/10th of a mile long. around 10,000 per house

Wizard = conspiracy theorist. A bad one at that.

Alcohol has been proven to raise estrogen to some extent--to a significant degee, not sure.

Chicken on the other hand has never been for having an effect on estrogen in the body--if you have something contrary to what I just said, it would be appreciated.
