FDA Promotes Unsafe Milk

Due to Industry Pressure

29 GROUPS URGE KANSAS GOVERNOR SEBELIUS TO VETO BILL ON RBGH MILK LABELING, CITING CONCERNS FOR FOOD SAFETY, CONSUMERS’ RIGHT TO KNOW, AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH

State Legislature Backs Biotech Interests Despite Strong Opposition
Consumers in Kansas Could be Misled About the Safety of Their Milk

Unless Governor Kathleen Sebelius vetoes it before April 16th, a Kansas bill would prevent any national US dairy from properly labeling their milk products as free from genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH or rbST).

Governor Sebelius, it should be noted, is the nominee for the cabinet position of Secretary of Health and Human Services.  “The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the United States government’s principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves.”

Please let the Governor know how you feel about genetically modified hormone-laden milk!

    1. Sadly, yes. What strikes me is how we’ve come to describe factory
      farmed “herbicides/pesticides” goods as “conventionally grown”, and
      organically grown food (how mankind has always eaten) as something
      trendy or elitist.

What do you think?
