More Twins?

Have you noticed lately that there seems to be an increase in the number of twins born?  It seems much more common today than it did years ago.  Well, there have been studies done that give us some answers as to why we hear about more and more women becoming pregnant with twins.

Many dairy cows are injected with hormones to increase their milk supply. In 1950, the average dairy cow produced almost 5,300 pounds of milk a year, today, a typical cow produces more than 18,000 pounds.  Not only does the hormone increase their milk supply, it also increases the occurrence of mastitis.  Therefore the cows need to be given more antibiotics - yeah!

The hormone rBGH that is injected into dairy cows is causing much concern due to its link to breast cancer, prostate cancer, and other hormonal problems.  Scientists have also linked the rise in twin births over the past 30 years to hormones in our food supply.

We cannot continue to manipulate nature through the abuse of chemicals and expect to be blessed by it!  As animals are pushed beyond their God given limits due to selfishness, we will continue to suffer for it.  We need to make some changes!

Now...I think having twins would be a blessing! :) But I will pass on the hormone and antibiotic infested milk!  Make wise choices for you and your family! Know where your food comes from, and buy foods that you are not afraid to eat. :)
