|GOT MILK WITH BOVINE GROWTH HORMONE|
In an October 23 2007 ruling by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Agriculture, your ability to know what you are eating in your food is being greatly restricted. As of January 1, 2008, dairies in the commonwealth will no longer be able to state that their products are free of rBST/rBGH-recombinant growth hormone. In other words, the state of Pennsylvania doesn't want you to know when you are drinking milk or eating cheese from cows that have been fed genetically engineered bovine growth hormone. Of course, Big Brother PA says this is for your own good. In a classic iteration of Orwell's 1984, "Ignorance is Knowledge", and "Danger is Safety."
Why is this really being done? Monsanto, the creator of this Frankenstein hormone, loses money when you know what you are eating. It's to the benefit of their bottom line that you remain in the dark. If you don't know which milk has rBST/rBGH and which one doesn't, Monsanto's profits are protected. This is more important than your safety or your ability to make choices concerning yours and your family's health.
What's wrong with rBST/rBGH? All 25 countries of the European Union, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia have banned its use in the production of milk. rBGH is a powerful genetically engineered drug produced by Monsanto which, injected into dairy cows, forces them to produce 15%-25% more milk, in the process seriously damaging their health and reproductive capacity. Milk from rBGH injected cows contains substantially higher amounts of a potent cancer tumor promoter called IGF-1. In 1994, despite evidence that rBGH milk contained higher levels of pus, bacteria, and antibiotics, the FDA gave the hormone its seal of approval, with no real pre-market safety testing required.
