"What’s in Your Milk"
by Dr. Samuel S. Epstein
Summary of the book:
The risks of cancer to consumers and particularly their children, especially those enrolled in the Public School Lunch Program, are undisputable. The Book, "What's In Your Milk " by Samuel S. Epstein MD is a unique resource on rBGH milk. Since 1989 Dr. Epstein’s scientific publications have played a major role in influencing other nations, including all of Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan to ban rBGH milk. The book also presents: the author’s editorials and letters to major newspapers, and correspondence with the FDA, Congressman John Conyers, and other key members of Congress and the Senate.
He details evidence of Monsanto’s white collar crime; the suppression and manipulation of information on the veterinary and public health dangers of rBGH milk; and evidence of Monsanto’s “Hit Squad,” which attempted to stifle and discredit him.
Of compelling interest is the story behind Fox Television’s firing of Jane Akre, a veteran journalist, following her in-depth interview on rBGH with Dr. Epstein, his subsequent day-long deposition by Monsanto on her behalf, her subsequent litigation against Fox, and Fox’s successful counter suit.
Monsanto’s corporate recklessness, compounded by FDA’s complicity and refusal to require labeling of rBGH milk, more than justify the rejection of any assurances of its safety. Of further interest is the critical relevance of this information to the ongoing growing concerns and debate on genetically engineered foods, including irrefutable evidence discrediting the “trust us” safety assurances of Monsanto, and other industries.
The book also includes resource materials, listings of national and international anti-biotech, public health, veterinary and animal rights activist groups. Also listed are rBGH-free U.S. dairy producers, such as Horizon Organic, and Swiss Valley Farms. "What’s In Your Milk’s" critical message to consumers is boycott rBGH hormonal milk in favor of certified organic milk.
