- This column is dedicated to a special
dairy farmer, a woman who sees truth in
almost every aspect of life, save one.
I've been to this dairywoman's farm. I've
had dinner with her family. I know that she
purchases milk in cartons from stores for her
own personal consumption.
Talk about bringing coal to Newcastle, or
having all the tea in China and drinking the
massed produced broken orange blossom
supermarket brand. Her personal choice
becomes fodder for a future psychological
commentary. Why will she not drink the body
fluids from her own animals like most dairymen
do? Although I am aware of how very much she
loves her cows, she has successfully closed
her mind to the pain and suffering that ends
the lives of each gentle creature who resides
on her farm.
There will come a point in today's column when
she will be unable to read any more. I love this
woman because she cares about so many things,
and possesses the vision to see. She is indeed a
rarity among men (and women).
On one hand, she calls to many of her animals
by name. One the other hand, she considers each
of her creatures agricultural units, rather than
sentient beings who each have the ability to
experience pain, feel emotions and form attachments
to their offspring, and experience the terror of death
by being taken from the only life they knew, being
stuffed into trucks, going to death camps
(slaughterhouses) and receiving stunning blows to
their heads and knives to their throats.
She injects many of her cows with the genetically
engineered bovine growth hormone, despite
knowing the pain these animals must endure
as a result of rbGH-treatment.
She will read today's column, and realize that
I am right, and continue to close her mind to the
truth which will one day haunt her.
WARNING TO ALL: You do not want to
read this column if your superego cannot handle
Imagine your internal organs exploding from
within. If you continue to enjoy dairy products,
the picture I am about to paint for you will be
hazardous to your psyche.
During the approval process for rbGH, Monsanto's
genetically engineered bovine growth hormone
(now in America's cheese, ice cream, and milk),
the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined
that growth hormone treatment was perfectly safe
and painless for dairy cows.
Both Monsanto and FDA claimed that rbGH injections
were safe for dairy cows. Stolen internal
confidential documents (published by the dairy
industry newsletter MILKWEED) prove otherwise.
Imagine an 1800 pound cow losing more than six
percent of her body weight (over 100 pounds)
during one year of milking.
During that weight loss, what would you guess
would be the effect on her body organs? Would
the organs also shrink or remain the same size?
Imagine that same new miracle diet for women,
approved by FDA. All you have to do is receive an
injection of growth hormones every two weeks as
dairy cows do. You weigh 150 pounds at the
beginning of your diet, and after one year weigh
just 141 pounds. What do imagine would happen to
your liver and heart? How about your adrenal
gland or thyroid?
How about a woman's ovaries? Would they remain the
same size or shrink proportionally to her overall
While stressed dairy cows lost weight, their body
organs grew enormously!
Adrenal glands squirt adrenaline into a mammal's
system during stressful events. This powerful
chemical is responsible for the "fight or flight"
Cows treated with low doses of rbGH lost an
average of 90 pounds, but their adrenal glands
grew by a factor of 21% over the control group
(cows not treated with rbGH). The medium dose
group experienced increases of 46%, while the
high dosed group had adrenal growth of 51%.
The thyroid gland is responsible for regulating
metabolism. The low dose group experienced 7%
growth increases. The medium dose group
experienced a 17% increase, while the high dose
group experienced a 61% increase over controls.
Liver and heart weights increased by double-digit
factors in the medium and high dose groups. Ovary
weights increased in excess of twenty percent in
all three groups.
If FDA learned of these adverse effects in a
human medicine, they would immediately remove
that hazardous poison from the market place.
This is dangerous, folks. To cows and humans.
We drink their body fluids. We drink their
hormones. Their adverse effects become ours.
No biological effects? Here are the actual data:

I cannot forgive the scientists who saw the
truth and urged approval of a treatment that
allows the animals to live in pain
for the sake of their company profits.
I cannot forgive the government regulators
who benefit by the revolving door policy
created by pharmaceutical companies who
hire regulators with high paying jobs that
continues a rotten system. These regulators
had to have seen the scientific evidence.
What turned them deaf, dumb, and blind to
I cannot forgive the dairy farmers who pretend
to care for their animals, while administering
dose after dose of internal pain.
When man learns an evil truth, however painful
that truth may be, he loses his innocence and
is no longer naive. There is just one single
moment of truth when that educated man steps
over his threshold, separating all that is good
from all that is evil. Once over the line
separating the ethical from the non-ethical,
there is no recapturing one's dignity.
The innocent animals continue to explode from
within from man's biotechnically induced torture
