"Stop the rBST Cover-up in Ohio
The dairy industry’s use of synthetic growth hormone (rBST) to boost milk production in cows has been under controversy since the FDA caved in to the lobbying efforts of Monsanto—a reckless and powerful agricultural biotechnology company—and rushed approval of the practice 15 years ago. State by state, the industry continues to lean on agriculture departments to silence debate on the issue, keeping consumers in the dark about the blatant cruelty and hazards of rBST’s use in animals. The latest battleground is Ohio, where lawmakers are preparing to decide whether or not to allow product labels that could expose industry’s use of rBST. Don’t let agribusiness dictate the fate of animals or deny the public’s right to know. Take action now!"
