Simon Cowell's Man Boobs

Simon Cowell's famous Man Boobs

Caution: Gross post ahead.

Ever wondered how men get their boobies? Check out this extract from a research paper:

Modern slaughter techniques which cause fear in animals defeat this mechanism. This results in animals whose meat has unnaturally high amounts of hormones. This is apparent in the United States, where it was noted that girls were entering puberty at abnormally early ages, and that teenage boys were starting to develop small breasts.

Article source:

The summary: In the final few hours before being slaughtered, animals undergo peak stress, sometimes to the point of chewing each others tails off. They produce adrenalin, cortisone-like secretions, and steroids that stimulate fear pheromone production. These end up locked in the meat you eat.

Reading this and a couple of other research sites, apparently this is what eating “stressed” meat does to you:

  • Continued marked increase in early onset of menses of girls (68% under age 10, as opposed to an historical rate of 32% under age 10)
  • Increased incidence of breast development in teenage boys. (Fully 48% had breast development 200% beyond the norm, and 89% had a notable increase in breast development.)
  • Small reduction in physical size of the sexual organs
  • Dramatic increase in impotency
  • Cardiac problems

The research was all done in the US so little or no artificial growth hormones were present in the animal prior to slaughter as required by the USDA.

The research also declares dog meat as the worst because of the amount of stress they exhibit when killed.

We Chinese have a saying. We’ll eat anything with legs except tables and chairs. Not very comforting when you appreciate the chemistry involved.

Be careful of what you eat. Or would that be thinking too much?

    Indulge in some treats to your favorites once in a while if you must, but folks, just EAT TO LIVE, don’t live to eat. It’s a dangerous indulgence. The rest is up to nature. If we really analyse everything we get to eat these days, nothing’s safe anymore.

    I think since birth we are conditioned to treat food as a reward. We feel so good around food some of us actually drive up from Sg to Melaka just for breakfast. Its a very hard thing to shake.

    That is a very interesting and informative info.
    So we have to eat pure food (vegetarian, vegan or organic vegetables/fruits) -the food that has less karmic burden …
    Thank You for posting this articles.
    The animal will thanks you for that.

    I decided to post this article because I once overheard two concerned mothers talk about why their young sons are developing breasts. Knowledge about cause and effect is good to prevent future suffering. Its good to be aware.
