Food Labels, Decoded
“No Hormones”What it means: This label appears on beef and dairy products to signify that the animals were raised without hormones, which are commonly used to make animals gain weight faster or to increase milk production.
The health implications: Some experts say hormone-treated foods may increase the risk for cancer, but so far there is little long-term research to support these claims.
Keep in mind: If you can’t find this label, choose organic products, which also haven’t been subjected to hormones.
Bottom line: Look for this label if you want to err on the side of caution and cost is not a huge issue. (Foods labeled with “no hormones” cost more than their conventional counterparts.)
