Hormones are routinely used in meat and dairy production as growth promoters, given to dairy cows to increase milk production, hormone -active pesticides are sprayed on crops, are used in plastic food packaging and can be found in the industrial chemicals and byproducts, used in industrial processes, which also make their way into the food chain.

This smart guides explains the various routes of exposure, the different types of hormones found in our food chain and how best to reduce exposure.

Accompanying the Smart Guide are supporting articles by IATP providing some additional information and our earliest press release documenting  FDA approval of BGH (bovine growth hormone, also called rBGH) at the same time the EU was considering banning it for seven years.
