Now what the hell is that about? "Well, we have to oblige customers by taking out the hormones... but we can still try to propagandize the other milk!"
I think this last statement is something they are required to say. You know, like lawyer commercials - "no representation is made that our lawyer is better than any other lawyer". That type of thing, if they want to state that no added hormones are present.

It's a moot point anyway. No human should drink pastuerized/homogenized milk. It is very harmful to the body for a number of reasons. If, If, If you insist on drinking it, drink whole milk. The CLA fatty acids in it are the best part of milk. Any lower percentage of fat means the milk has been processed even further. Skim milk is vile. Don't drink it!
