Turns Out Your “Hormone-Free” Milk Is Full of Sex Hormones
https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/04/milk-hormones-cancer-pregnant-cows-estrogen/

Everyone that smokes does not die from smoking related illness ```

nor does all who drink milk from animals shot full of hormones ~ on and on and on and on ```

Hormones are good for milk production business ~ not for Cows or People ~ or their children ```
The "hormone free" milk I've seen locally is always followed (in small print) by "farmer certified", "our farmers pledge", or something similar - no mention of any testing to verify that claim. "Sure, my milk is rbgh free (wink wink)".:fl Our food labeling system leaves much to be desired, probably by design.

Personally, I don't have feelings one way or the other about the issue; but then, I'm an adult, and the small amount of milk I consume is unlikely to have any significant effect on me, regardless of what is or is not in it. I'm more concerned about the effect these hormones might have on children, as well as the antibiotics, preservatives, agricultural chemicals, and household chemicals they are also exposed to. We are constantly exposed to so many things, that if/when widespread health issues are detected, it will be nearly impossible to find the link(s) between cause & effect.

There is no such thing as “hormone free” milk. Beef cows that are free grazed have the same % of hormones (possibly more) as a high producing dairy cow that is injected with BST. Because of the consumers dislike of BST usage, I know of no dairies that use it.

We want to eat the hi calorie foods (associate the flavor with “in our minds” a simpler time in our lives). Problem is we don’t work or play physically as hard as they did then-thus burning up calories. So the body develops faster and we become larger and heavier. Not hard to understand. Want kids to not develop as fast, get them off sugar, hi caloric diets and don’t allow them electronic game time or TV time. Do what our parents did, Make them go outside and play (or work).

Hi, After the pill injected into the comb is spent ( If allowed to Live ) the rooster ~ becomes a ROOSTER full blown~ but Big ~ I kept one alive when I was a boy on folks ranch ```
I wonder what's in the pill? I've never heard of caponizing either. Do you think this is a common commercial practice?

Capon surgery is common in China. In the western countries, we raise Cornish X chickens , cross bred chicken between selected breeds that grow very rapidly and are butchered at 42 days of age for game hens, or kept a for a week or two longer for your fryer size birds. Add a couple weeks more and you get roaster size birds.

I Guess if you are on the "All Cheese Diet" you should worry about your health.
REALLY?!?!?!?
I love cheese, but I think my dog gets more cheese in her training weekly--maybe 2 slices--than I get in a month.
Should we ALSO put this label on milk?!?!?

Well, it takes a gallon of milk to make a bit less than a pound of cheese. That's about 16 slices. Perhaps it's the concentration of milk that's the issue?
