Allergykids.com has a wonderful food politics blog that I really admire. On February 1st, there was an excellent article “Got Milk Allergy? What the Labels (and Docs!) Don’t Tell Us” with an overview of the controversial rBGH growth hormone given to many cows in the United States and outlawed in other countries. Youtube has a video explaining the rBGH controversy.
Youtube also has a video explaining how the rBGH controversy has been covered up.
This is an older, more sensational, but not inaccurate story done on Hard Copy about rBGH.
