Another grubbermint regulator sold out years ago

Did you Know You Could Get Cancer…
Just from Drinking Milk?

For the past 20 years, much of the nation’s milk has come from cows injected with a genetically engineered growth hormone known as rBST.

Write those letters down…

r-B-S-T.

After we’re done here today, you should go to your fridge and look at the milk you have. Make sure your milk is rBST-free.

Again, it’s…

r-B-S-T.

But before you go check, let me explain how dangerous those letters can be…

Farmers inject rBST into cows every two weeks to increase hormonal activity, boosting milk production by as much as 25%.

That’s great for dairy producers, who are able to get more milk from each cow, increasing their profits. It’s also great for the biotech companies that sell the hormone.

There’s only one big problem: this hormone has been linked to various types of cancer.

That probably explains why all 27 countries of the European Union, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada have all banned its use in milk destined for human consumption.

Sadly, the U.S. is the only developed nation that allows rBST.

The Cancer Prevention Coalition has even submitted several petitions to the FDA asking them to ban this hormone.

But the FDA has ignored their requests. Maybe that explains why the U.S. has the highest rates of cancer in the world.

Description

A study done by Susan Hackinson, ScD, of Harvard Medical School, has showed that this hormone increases the risk of developing breast cancer seven-fold in women under 50… and that it increases a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer nine-fold.

Dr. Jenny Pompilio, a physician with Kaiser Permanente in Oregon says: “It’s been known for years that this particular hormone is linked with cancers effects on the endocrine system.”

Now, if you’re like me, you’re probably asking yourself: “how in the hell has the FDA approved this?”

You would think that, after approving it, the FDA would at least slap a label on rBST milk saying something like “warning: could cause cancer.”

But that’s not what happened.

Dairies that use this dangerous hormone don’t even have to disclose that information to consumers.

And the FDA didn’t stop at forbidding GM labeling… It went one step further.

In 1994 they wrote a regulation requiring that any food label describing the product as bovine growth hormone free must also include these words:

“The FDA has determined no significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBST and non rBST treated cows”

So, the FDA basically restricted dairies that didn’t use the hormone from pointing out that their milk was different from the genetically modified kind.

Maybe you’ve seen this statement on your jug of milk. And since it comes from the FDA, I bet you believed in it… like I did.

But did you know that this rBST statement has never been verified by either Monsanto or FDA studies? If a private company had made such statement, it would be charged with fraud.

And it gets worse… the FDA consistently covered up warnings from its own scientists about the health hazards of GMOs.

The details are buried inside 44,000 pages of FDA’s internal files. I’ll reveal the content of these documents in a moment.

First, it’s important that you understand that the approval of rBST reveals…

One of the Biggest Government Lies:
“The Food We Eat is Safe”

You see, the FDA didn’t perform any kind of testing in regards to rBST. FDA official John Scheid later admitted to the Associated Press that the agency based their approval simply on a summary provided by Monsanto.

Former FDA veterinarian Richard Burroughs, who was a lead reviewer in this hormone’s approval process, said the drug “was approved prematurely without adequate information”… and that “the whole rBST thing was bad science and bad regulation.”

The European Union even investigated the FDA’s faulty approval process and concluded that the hormone’s safety had never been proved.

Canadian scientists also analyzed the FDA’s approval process and wrote a lengthy and scathing report. If you google “Gaps Analysis Report”, you can read it online.

The report recounted omissions, contradictions, weaknesses, and gaps in the FDA’s approval process. It concluded that…

“The required long-term studies to ascertain human safety were NOT conducted. Hence, the risk of sterility, infertility, birth defects, cancer and immunological disorder was not addressed.”
