No more "juiced" milk

You have to hand it to Wal-Mart, they know how to respond to customer demand. With customers already indicating a preference for milk without rBGH (bovine growth hormones) - 80%, in this survey - Wal-Mart decided that they won't carry it any more. You'll only be able to buy milk from naturally lactating cows.

The FDA approved rBGH in 1993 and there have been some studies showing adverse effects in cows, though none in humans. On the grounds of its potential harm to cattle, rBGH is banned in Canada and Europe.
