rBGH, Cancer, and School Milk

Our friends at Breast Cancer Action are doing great work to help eliminate the causes of cancer in our environment. We support their current campaign is to get rBGH out of School Milk.

-------

Our kids deserve the healthiest food possible, and parents deserve to have a say in what their kids eat. Milk is a staple for many of our nation’s youngsters, and it’s crucial that the milk served in schools be safe, healthy and free of artificial hormones.

The artificial growth hormone rBGH, used to increase milk production, is unhealthy for cows and may be linked with some types of cancer in humans. RBGH is already banned in some countries, and US consumers are increasingly opting for milk produced without it. Now, companies may be looking to school lunch programs as an outlet for milk consumers don’t want.

We can’t let pharmaceutical companies and corporate agribusiness dictate what’s best for our kids. That’s why Food & Water Watch’s School Milk Campaign is working to give all schools the option to choose milk that is free of rBGH.

Take action and sign the petition to ask Congress to allow schools to purchase artificial hormone-free milk and organic milk.

However, it is possible to reduce the chances of developing cancer by knowing about what puts you at breast risk. For this reason, it is important to know what factors can increase or decrease cancer risk and how much those factors change your risk.

It really pays to know a lot about this matter. If your children is at risk because of these daily products being produced, then somebody must take action at once.

Systematic activities to prevent or cure health problems and promote good health in humans are undertaken by health care providers. Applications with regard to animal health are covered by the veterinary sciences. Thanks.
