Talk:Growth Hormones in Food
So, is turning vegan the only solution? Or are there places from where one can still buy food that does not contain toxins, carcinogens or growth hormones? Do you have a list of ethical suppliers you can share with us?
More milk, less greenhouse gas emissions
A US study has found that giving one million dairy cows a growth hormone makes them produce more milk and would cut greenhouse gas emissions equal to taking 400,000 cars off the road.
The study found using rbST -- the first biotech product used on US farms which has been in farm use for about 15 years -- can help reduce the "carbon hoofprint" while still meeting dairy demand.
