    I almost didn't read it, despite a longstanding interest in this subject. How about including the words "rBGH" and "milk" in the title?

    Incidentally, the approval of rBGH for use in milk was based on a study of seven rats done by a lab with a history of ethical lapses. This is from a stellar article by Samuel Epstein. I forget the title, but the subtitle was "a case of regulatory abdication".

      by the number of regulators that had worked for Monsanto or later got a job with Monsanto but it takes far more than a seven rat study for approval even if a "fix" is in.
      Also Sam Epstein is a physician whose rants in a number of food issues are not based on scientific evidence but mostly by inference.
