Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
Here's the translation: the FDA argues that since hormones are already naturally found in milk that there's no need to label rbGH free and rbST free. However, researchers have found differences that could possibly impact our health. Right now it's up to indivdual states whether or not they allow hormone free labels. It would be a HUGE step for the FDA to acknowledge health risks.

Sad really. It's a circular argument. They say that they should ban the label because there is no difference, however, they get patents on these things. It will be interesting to see what happens, the ruling is under review. Not sure what that means. If there are any legalese literate folks that can explain I would appreciate it.
