The internet is awash with scary stories about growth hormones in milk. They are said to cause cancer and even breast development in babies fed a milk-based formula. Cows injected with growth hormones are also said to have much shorter lifespans than the 12-plus years ours enjoy.
I’m happy to say I can’t offer you any insight into this bitterly debated issue. Although bovine growth hormone (BGH) is commonly used in the US, it and BST or bovine somatotropin are outlawed here in Australia.
Every litre of Aussie milk is guaranteed to be free from growth hormones!
