Saw this on the abc website today, pretty interesting read. What does everyone think about it?

 

P.S not sure which is the most approproate forum to post this in and articles seemed the closest.

That's pretty scary.

Pending further research, please don't eat too many of Androo's beef sausages at the next PCS meeting, and I for one won't be standing in front of you!  :Rofl_3f:

Yeah. Caught sight of that.  There are many breeding strategies and not just the commonly pursued one. Certainly Ad Konings was talking about miniature shell dwellers that used a sneaky method to pass on their genes.

 

 

Then again, this would certainly explain the behaviour of certain footballers in hotel rooms...

I swear to god, the amount of miss informed people regarding hormones in beef,

Curtis stone is a fool and so are Coles with their 'hormone free'

Plus your sausages are from coles so don't stress. Iv got more hgp in me then those sausages
