it just occurred to me that armour thyroid might come from factory-farmed pigs ... they can be grain fed and USDA approved and still come from factory farms ...
sure hope the answer is a definite "no", because i don't support factory farming and generally eat organic ... ever had an organic turkey? mm-mm -- the turkeys my nanna used to make were, well, organic, the concept of factory farming not have been invented yet ... then i started making my own xmas dinner and the stuff tasted like cardboard -- i persisted, with the idea that it was my cooking of the bird that was wrong and then -- organic came to town! at first, only the pretentious and yuppies bought it, then it became more popular, then i bought one (just about broke the bank tho'), and vi-ola -- nanna's turkey on my table!!
anyway, i'll be realy disappointed if they're factory farmed for armour/parke davis -- hope not!!
