To The Editor In response to Chelsea Murray’s letter to the editor regarding my comment on milk "Fighting Words" (January 18). I would like to clarify that at no time in my interview with Sue Carter-Flynn of The Coast, did I suggest that Canadian dairy farmers inject their cows with artificial hormones. I am very aware that this practice is illegal in this country. When I mentioned hormones, I was specifically talking about naturally occurring hormones and their possible effects on humans. Although there’s still a lot of research to be done in this area, in the practice of natural nutrition, we see over and over again, women with PMS and other hormone imbalances have their symptoms greatly improve when they avoid dairy products. Milk is well known to be one of the top ten allergic foods and although some can enjoy it without symptoms, many cannot. Penny Ormsbee, RHN, RNCPRegistered Holistic Nutritional Consultant & Educator
