Is hormone-free milk healthy?

There is no such thing as hormone-free milk. The healthiest milk from
the healthiest cow is naturally loaded with lactoferrins,
immunoglobulins, steroid, and protein growth hormones. In an effort to
provide their children with healthy foods, mothers and fathers search
out products that are advertised to be "hormone free." Such marketing is
deceptive. When drinking body fluids from animals, or eating their
flesh, you ingest their naturally occurring hormones.

The largest producer of so-called hormone-free milk in America is
Horizon Farms.

Horizon's organic milk contains animal fat and cholesterol, dioxins, and
bacteria. The amount of somatic cells (pus) in organic milk is lower
than milk from non-organic cows, but it's still dead white blood cells
and dead bacteria. Ask yourself this question. Does organic human breast
milk sound like a delicious drink for an adult human?

Instinctively, most people know that there are substances in breast milk
that are not intended for their adult bodies. Same goes for pig's milk
and dog's milk. Same for cow's milk.

Some people may not be able to tolerate lactose, a milk sugar. One
hundred percent of humans are allergic to casein, a milk protein. Eighty
percent of the protein in Horizon's organic dairy products is casein,
the same glue used to adhere a label to a bottle of beer. Eat casein and
your body produces histamines, then mucous. This sludge congests your
organs. Give up all milk and dairy products for just one week and an
internal "fog" will lift from your body.

Is genetically engineered milk dangerous? You bet! Organic milk contains
just a little bit less of the same hormones. I find there to be very
little difference between the two.

The people at Horizon want you to believe that their cows are so happy
that they've trademarked the phrase "Happy Cows." Each year, one out of
three Horizon happy cows are sent on a truck ride to hell, the
slaughterhouse. Ask Horizon if they would allow you to become witness to
the final 24 hours of a happy cow's life.

Horizon pretends to have happy cows, yet these animal's udders become so
large that it is necessary to milk them three times per day. Most dairy
farms milk their cows once or twice each day.

Horizon pretends to have happy family farms, but nothing could be more
distant from the truth. On March 9th, 1999, the World Street Journal

"Horizon buys about 40% of its milk from other organic-dairy operations,
but it has two farms of its own, in Idaho with 3,700 milking cows, and
Maryland with 500 cows. The company is looking to establish a third
farm...and have a capacity for 2,000 cows..."

Folks, Horizon runs a factory-farm operation. I've investigated the
Idaho farm which actually contains nearly 7,000 cows.  Each animal
produces 80 pounds of body wastes daily.  That's 560,000 pounds of
excrement and urine each day entering Idaho's environment.

How does Horizon fool so many people all of the time?
