I'm not really sure what to believe about the whole hormones/antibiotics/pesticides thing. Right now I am a little hesitstant to dive in head first with the conventional animal products thing. My eggs are organic and so I my whey and I get a lot of fats from coconut oil/shredded coconut and olive oil, flax, chia, pumpkin seeds, avocados, but these aren't really nutritious fats like meat. I eat a lot of sardines and salmon and take chlorella to counteract the small amounts of mercury. Then I eat a fair amount of chicken and beef, about 400 calories a day from either one of those. As far as the antibiotics are concerned, I'm not overly concerned about those. The issue is that you can possibly acquire bacteria that are antibiotic resistant, so I take probiotics; I would take probiotics anyway. I'm not really concerned about the pesticides, as chlorella really is a fantastic way to counteract that sort of thing. I generally treat my liver very well and use milk thistle, dandelion and burdock intermittently.
Our bodies are generally very resilient and very good at eliminating harmful things so long as we provide them adequate nutrition and support, but I still worry a bit about this sort of stuff. I suppose I could add a little more organic meat.
