Milk – Just Ingredients


In 1993, our milk changed. The FDA approved rBGH and rBST growth hormones to be given to the cows. Then after 1996, some dairy farmers also started to feed the cows glyphosate sprayed gmo corn. And after 1998, gmo soy as well. And the majority of the people had no idea this had been changed until years later.
So in 2000, the FDA created the organic label. This allowed us as consumers to know which milk did not have the growth hormones or gmo feed.
The hormones rBGH and rBST are banned in Canada and Europe.
From the Center for Food Safety:
“Recent research has also shown that the levels of a hormone called “insulin-like growth factor-1″ (IFG-1) are elevated in dairy products produced from cows treated with rbGH. Canadian and European regulators have found that the FDA completely failed to consider a study that showed how the increased IGF-1 in rBGH milk could survive digestion and make its way into the intestines and blood stream of consumers. These findings are significant because numerous studies now demonstrate that IGF-1 is an important factor in the growth of cancers of the breast, prostate and colon.”
