In this week's podcast, we discuss an article in which a track athlete preparing for the olympics tested positive for steroids and then blamed the positive test on a tainted... pork burrito.
There is a common misconception that meat contains a lot of added hormones. This couldn't be further from the truth. If this track athlete was smart, she would have blamed her positive test result on quinoa or soy. Plants have way more hormones in them compared to meat.
12oz of Grain finished beef has 7.6ng of hormones in it while 3oz of tofu has 19,000,000ng of estrogen based hormones in it. Raw spinach has 975,000ng and quinoa has 27,000,000ng. As you can see, the amount of hormones in plants vastly outweighs the amount go hormones in meat.
Did you know the plants you're consuming contained so many hormones?
