Reading, 'riting and rBGH: What Kind of Milk Is Being Served in Your Child's School?
I think I'm going to have a cow.
On February 3, 1994, Monsanto began marketing Posilac™, or recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbgh), a delicious drug injected into cows to make them produce 10-20% more milk and profit. Since then, growing numbers of consumers are demanding that milk products from rBGH-injected cows be labeled
Shoppers are seeking out and purchasing rbgh-free milk. And Monsanto is trying to crush this marketplace revolt. I'm sure with a little help from their lobbiest cronies in Washington.

I am convinced to be a politician, you must have frontal labotomy, a bottle in front of you and your morals surgically removed. Most politician good-ole-boys are constantly nursing a hangover. Politicians are notorius drinkers. I sure don't want someone with a hangover deciding my future.
How else could you explain 'hiding' damaging hormones meant to make a cow lactate
more into our children's daily milk. What happened to "The Right to Information Act?" Conveniently ignored?
Have you noticed how large young womens breast are these days and how they begin their minsteral cycle under age 10. There is a connection.
It is clear the government is infinately more interested in profit than Ameircan human life. The are practiced at the art of deceptiion and are convinced ALL americans are stupid, whacked out on anti-depressents, and pills. They are right, because that's been their plan all along. The United Pharmacopia of America.

The Indiana House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development is trying to ban dairy labels that tell consumers whether the cows were injected with genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (Monsanto's Posilac, also known as rBGH).
If Bill 1300 becomes law, rBGH dairy labels will be banned as of July 1, 2008.
Due to overwhelming opposition from consumers and rBGH-free dairies, Rep. Friend passed on the opportunity to hold a House vote on Bill 1300. However, there's still a chance that the bill's language could be attached to another piece of legislation. Please personalize the letter below and send it to your state legislators urging them to oppose the rBGH labeling ban, Bill 1300.
You might have a few well selected words for your legislator if he or she happens to be among those who sponsored or voted for the rBGH labeling ban bill. I wonder if they have children?Sponsors of the Bill:

Do what you can and avoid commercial grocery store milk and purchase locally.
And people question why I turned Vegan. As a syndicated health columnist, the research I uncover often breaks my heart, but not my spirit. We do not know half of the truths and that's the way they like it. God however, will have something to say about it when they face their maker.
We are on this earth to do good deeds. Monsanto missed the boat to Ethicsville,....again.
God weeps at our stupidity and blind greed.
