I know and forgotten more about milk than I ever care to (my brother was a dairy herdsman for years - farms large and small - including one of the Duchy of Cornwall farms) - milk does get generated all the time that is way more than 4% fat content - the large dairies pay more for higher fat milk (at least in the UK) - because they can skim of the premium to make cream etc) - in England we could buy a type of milk called "breakfast milk" - it is 6% from memory - great on cereal - and works really well with oatmeal etc... obviously you can buy cream and make your regular milke higher in fat by adding it... but quite honestly, the uht milk being the norm is the same for everywhere now... it isn't easy to kind though and you have to get yourself a small local dairy to get anything other than the usual factory produced stuff.

I am more concerned with the practice of using rgh to boost milk production - that stuff is banned in europe... many of our food additives are banned in Europe - the first thing I noticed on moving to the states was that the foods in the grocery stores looked "un-natural" - they're color-added, pesticide and herbicide bathed and the in anything pre-prepared, they're seriously enhanced with coloring, chemical stabilizers and preservatives - the 1,000+ food additives that the FDA allows in our foods as part of the manufacturing process are mostly BANNED throughout europe.

If you can still find a copy - used even - grab "Conquer Fatigue in 30 Days" - by Dr. Elizabeth Walker - you'll find it on amazon - and even for just the info on food additives it is worth the money it will cost... my first glance at a new item on the shelves of the store and I'll know in the ingredients list if I consider it poisonous or not... Mrs wyb - she'll buy it and bring it home where I'll put it into the "take this stuff back or donate to the food bank" pile.
