To see how bad commercial animal products have gotten, read some of the milk labels. Many now state: “The FDA has determined that there is no significant difference between milk from artificial growth hormone treated cows and non-treated cows.” Clearly, milk from cows treated with steroids that accelerate production would change the composition of the milk and contain something you don’t want in your body.
Many, and likely most, milk producers utilize recombinant bovine growth hormone (RBGH) to artificially increase milk production in cows. This process was deemed potentially hazardous and not permitted in the European Union, Canada, and some other countries. Milk from these hormone-treated cows has been found to induce a marked and sustained increase in levels of insulin-like growth factor-1, or IGF- 1. Elevated IGF-1 levels have been linked to the progression of many childhood cancers and to the growth of tumors in breast cancer, small cell lung cancer, melanoma, and cancers of the pancreas and prostate.[i]
Avoiding this is difficult because the FDA will not allow companies to put “hormone free” on labels and most dairy companies co-mingle rBGH and non-rBGH milk so nearly all commercial milk, dairy, and infant formula products are contaminated. To find a list of organic and rBGH-free dairies in the U.S. consult the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) website at www.organicconsumers.org.
