!! No different, except for the pus. !!

I feel like I’ve been posting a lot of rants lately, but I need to throw this one on the pile. Agribusiness giant Monsanto is suing a small, Maine dairy farm for labelling its milk as free of artificial growth hormones. Monsanto says the labelling implies that the milk is better than milk that comes from hormone-fed cows. The owner of the farm argues that he has a right to inform consumers about what they are drinking. Studies have shown that artificial growth hormones lead to 25% more pus (somatic cells) in the milk as a result of increased udder infections. That’s gross and I want to be able to choose not to drink cow pus. If you agree, write to Monsanto and tell them to drop their lawsuit against Oakhurst Dairy.
