I am happy to see the medical industry getting on board concerning this important issue. It is a crime what big meat producers do to the meat supply in the U.S.A. I try to eat all organic, hormone free meat when it is available in my area. I am seriously considering raising my own meat, fotunately I have the acreage to do so. Thanks for keeping us abreast.
