    And HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!!!! Evil stuff and it's "natural".

    BTW, it's been a bumper season for wild salmon this year, certainly in west coast Canada, so prices should come down and you won't need to buy the farmed stuff anyway.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    rBGH has been banned in Canada, the European Union, Japan, and Australia, due to concerns that it damages the health of the cows, and possibly those who drink the milk.

    It's banned in our dairy cows, but still used in beef cattle as far as I know. That's our only form of meat that allows hormones, though - you won't find them in Canadian pork or poultry, or in dairy. I'm not sure why the main articles on it (Wiki, etc.) seem to only refer to the dairy industry, though.
