A Little Gift From Monsanto To You! June 23, 2007

Yesterday Boxer Rebellion had a very worthwhile post about the movie Fast Food Nation in which he mentioned production methods for milk.

This reminded me of a speaker I heard on the radio a while back (Dang, I can’t remember his name!) who had quite a lot of embarrassing information about our Good Neighbors, Monsanto. You know, the purveyors of rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone)?

This is the good stuff which makes cows produce abnormal amounts of milk so our children can drink lots and lots of it.

Now because Monsanto wanted to make sure their Frankencows were making Nice Safe Milk for our babies, they hired an independent lab to test their new product. Unfortunately, the study came back disclosing that rBGH caused a very significant increase in the amount of PUS AND BLOOD IN THE MILK.

Yum!

Fortunately, Monsanto had a way to correct the problem…

…wait for it…

…they bought the study and BURIED IT. No study, no problem.
So the next time you grab a gallon of the good stuff, think about spending a wee tad more for locally produced Certified Organic milk, or at least milk which clearly states that it’s free of hormones and antibiotics.

Just a thought…
