    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.

Known as either...

    MILK occupies a special place in our lives and language. It has been dubbed “nature’s most perfect food,” and we speak sentimentally of the “land of milk and honey” and the “milk of human kindness.” But things are turning sour for consumers of milk. The average price of a gallon of milk nationwide is up 37 cents since January, to $3.47. Strong demand and limited ability to increase production quickly are expected to increase prices more, and experts have speculated that the price per gallon could reach a record $5 by year’s end. High feed costs associated with the ramping...
