On Pennsylvania, Milk and Hormones

Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Dennis C. Wolff has banned milk companies from labeling their milk as hormone-free. According to Wolff, such labels imply that milk containing rBGH, or recombinant bovine growth hormone, is not safe for consumption.

This is a huge win for Monsanto (hormone manufacturer and agri-business giant) and big loss for consumers in Pennsylvania who want to avoid artificial hormones, which are used in commercial dairies to bolster milk production. They have been implicated in cases of precocious puberty, and have been banned in the European Union, Canada, Australia and Japan.
