How would you know what milk or beef had hormones? I wonder if ours is the same? Yikes.[/b]
I'm not sure how it is there, but, from what I understand here, you can pretty much bet that if the meat or milk is not marketed as "organic" or "grain fed" or something like that, it comes from cows who have been given bovine growth hormone. So you have to go searching for it, I guess. I know that Braum's, the dairy company that I can get the hormone-free milk from, makes a point of advertising that their cows are "healthy".

Ug, the idea of Reilly starting her period in a year or two just makes me ill. I mean, I know that part of it is genetics on the part of the little girl who started so early, but I'm sure that hormones in food don't help.
