One thing, though, is to look at the population numbers. There are only about 9 million dairy cows in the US, only some of which are treated with hormones, probably less than half given the distribution of farm sizes. There are over 150 million women in the US, only some of which are using birth control. So the potential for human causes of hormones in the environment rather than dairy farm causes is certainly there, which makes it worth it for someone to study.
too much estrogen
This is a huge question, and it's true we're off-topic.
But there are estrogen imitators or look-alikes of many kinds, and among them agricultural pesticides.
There are only about 9 million dairy cows in the US,
what about all the pork, chicken, turkey, and beef cows?
perhaps this tangent off of 'pure economics' can serve to remind us that our existence depends more on good nourishment even than good banks and policies.
a fact one can easily forget in talk of spreads and bonds, discount windows and capital conjurings.
back to basics!
