free of recombinant bovine growth hormones, or rBGH/rBST

Free of recombinant bovine growth hormones, or rBGH/rBST.

However, as you know, thanks to efforts by Monsanto (the makers of rBST) and others, some states are now trying to BAN the labeling of milk as hormone-free, claiming it is unfair - yes, unfair! - because it implies hormone-free milk is safer than milk that comes from cows that have been injected with chemicals that aren't even approved in other countries. Imagine!

It is critical that we not only decry encroachments on the right to know what we are putting into our bodies and inform consumers about the use of rBGH and rBST, but also applaud those who have led the way in providing food and dairy free of hormones and genetic manipulation.
