Skip to comments.FDA helps Monsanto crush small milk producers

Small businesses, like milk producers, are the real job engine of this country. They hire here - not overseas. The government needs to stop helping giant corporations squash small business.
The FDA forces small milk producers that give consumers a choice of not drinking rBST hormone, to root for their competition, Monsanto, by stating on cartons that rBST is good for you. No other food producer is forced to do this. It's sheer anti-small-business CorpaGovernment corruption.
It's just annoying that no one is noticing what an intrusion this is. I'll buy what milk I want without the nanny state telling me that some hormone they want to force down my throat is okay. Yeah, just like they said Agent Orange was okay until fellow vets started dying in droves.
The underlying agenda is to give the big-government/big-corporate criminal complex complete control over the food supply so that when the time comes to starve the excess peasants they can just flip a switch.
I have to work with the FDA regularly.
They are a bureaucratic nightmare, and they are way beyond promoting “food safety.” Their rules and regulations in fact now have little to do with “food safety.”
FDA policy is being made by ex-Monsanto VP
Wait a minute. I’m confused. A lot of the milk we buy is labeled NOT from bST treated cows.
Furthermore, when we milked cows only a few people used bST.
I didn’t know Monsanto still made bST. Most producers have gotten away from it because the dairies didn’t want it because consumers didn’t want it.
Maybe I’m wrong.
Nothing new here folks. No one is being crushed by a harmless label.
Dont get your news, attitudes and facts from a site called change.org.
Dont get your news from PETA, natural health advocates, environmentalists or hear about the evils of nuclear energy from the vegetarian crowd.
