Raw Milk and rBGH: what’s healthy and what’s NOT

The Fight over Raw Milk

Good Morning, God!

Should people be able to buy and consume raw milk? Or, do people need to be protected from possible germs? That is a legal and societal question and I am on the side of the FREE TO DRINK RAW MILK. But, it could also be reframed as the question of which is more important — to BUILD UP our health or to PROTECT against any chance of harm?

Speaking of HARMING folks, God, what about the rBGH treated cows? Recombinant bovine growth hormone causes cows to give 15-20% more milk. Great, only the cows don’t live as long when treated with rbGH. The cows have all kinds of health problems. And there are worries about the consumers’ health too. Since 1994 the hormone has been banned in Canada, New Zealand, Japan, Australia and all 27 nations of the European Union.

While here, a group founded by Monsanto tried to make it illegal for dairies to put an “rBGH-FREE” label on their milk. No Free speech? It went to court in Ohio and the court said that there IS a difference between treated milk and rbGH free milk. The court said rBGH milk has more pus cells in it and higher levels of IGF-1. The court didn’t add that excessive levels of IGF-1 have been incriminated as major causes of breast, colon, and prostate cancers.

So here we are, God! In America we can have cloned cows — no kidding, milk from cloned cows. And it is legal to give a cow rBGH. All this while according to Time magazine some farmers selling raw milk have been arrested and it is illegal to transport raw milk across state lines.

Seems to me, God, both our health and our freedom are suffering.

Story teller,
