Call To Action!

Stolen from Kuma's myspace bulletin...please click the link and take some action on this issue.

Several large dairy producers and food companies have made news recently by getting rid of recombinant bovine growth hormone, also known as rBGH or rBST, from their milk supply. This is great news for consumers, since this artificial growth hormone is known to cause harm to cows and may pose harm to humans. (To find out more about links between rBGH use, antibiotic resistant bacteria and certain types of cancer, check out: http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/food/dairy/bovine-growth-hormone)

Monsanto, the company that makes the artificial growth hormone, is seeing much of its market slip away. In an attempt to preserve their profits, the company has asked the Food and Drug Administration to restrict the use of labels identifying "rBGH-free" or "rBST-free" dairy products.

If Monsanto succeeds in convincing FDA to restrict rBGH-free labeling, consumers will lose valuable information about how their food is produced. So if you want to tell the FDA that consumers have a right to know what's put in our food and drink, you can write them at http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/fwwatch/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=11211.

Thanks guys. :-) Hope all of you have a great weekend.
