There is one food you may be surprised to learn, that is directly linked to breast cancer—and that is pasteurized dairy in the form of milk or milk products.
The risk lies in consuming milk from cows treated with a synthetic, genetically engineered growth hormone called rBGH, and unfortunately, this applies to about one third of the dairy cows in America.
When you consume dairy products from these cows, every product made from their milk is contaminated with this dangerous hormone—be it cheese, ice cream, yogurt, butter—or just plain milk.
Cows are injected with rBGH to boost their milk production.
But science has proven this practice, although profitable to the industry, comes at a high price to you, as well as to dairy cows. RBGH, or recombinant bovine growth hormone, is a synthetic version of natural bovine somatotropin (BST), a hormone produced in cows' pituitary glands.
Monsanto developed the recombinant version from genetically engineered E. coli bacteria and markets it under the brand name "Posilac."
RBGH is the largest selling dairy animal drug in America.
But it is banned in Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and in the 27 countries of the European Union because of its dangers to human health. Many have tried to inform the public of the risks of using this hormone in dairy cows, but their attempts have been met with overwhelming opposition by the powerful dairy and pharmaceutical industries, and their government liaisons.
1. mon doesn't sell it anymore.
2. cow hormones are't active in people
3. still widely used in milk for cheese not in milk for drinking
4. not a hazard
zero evidence of human harm
evicence that if ytou increase milk production per cow - more infections hence more antibiotic use. If you ban prosilac yopu should ban anything that increases milk production per cow.
hormones keeps diaries in business - if milk per cow increases by 10% you need 10% fewer cows to produce same amount of milk hence increase profit
ho hum, i just returned from the kitchen, where i consumed yet another yummy six pack of lorna doone cookies, washed down with about 10 gulps of good old prairie farms moo juice from those diabolically toxic dairy farms of central illinois!...looks to me like millions upon millions of americans, among the healthiest and happiest people on earth, are ignoring your chicken little screed and doing the same...i expect to snarf more of this white poison with my corn flakes tomorrow am!...yummee...
