Specifically, the modern factory farm creates meat that is much higher in saturated fats – and much lower in healthy omega 3s – than traditional grass-fed cows. Feedlot cows are also dosed with large quantities of antibiotics and estrogen. Worse, the FDA allows a drug banned in 160 nations and responsible for hyperactivity, muscle breakdown and 10 percent mortality in pigs to be added to animal feed shortly before slaughter. While the practice of feeding cow parts to other cows – one of the main causes of mad cow disease – has been banned on paper, cow blood “products”, feather meal, pig and fish protein, and chicken manure are all still fed to cows. And genetically-engineered meat isn’t even tested for human safety. » Consumer Alert: High Fructose Corn Syrup Simply Renamed After Public Backlash Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

Feeding pregnant rats a fatty diet puts both their daughters and granddaughters at greater risk of breast cancer. Sonia de Assis of Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington DC and colleagues had discovered that the daughters of pregnant rats fed an unhealthy diet are more likely to develop breast cancer. Now they have shown that even if these daughters eat healthily, their offspring are still at greater risk of disease. Rats don't normally develop breast cancer, so de Assis had to give the granddaughters a chemical that induces tumours.

This put all the granddaughters at increased risk. Non-genetic inheritance De Assis, who presented the work at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in Washington DC, says a fatty diet may cause "epigenetic" DNA modifications that can be passed on to future generations.
