RANT: AMERICAN DAIRY

I was appalled to learn that I was fed foods my entire life that were known to be harmful to me.  Sure, some food companies make “junk food” or sell  poor quality meat, but how could the FDA let companies sell food that are known to slowly kill us?

While working as a physician in New Zealand, I had dinner at a dairy farmer’s house. He explained he could only inject cows with hormones if the meat and dairy products were going to be exported to America. WTF?!?
