Should The FDA Ban Bovine Growth Hormone?


Monsanto went to great lenghts to get the FDA to approve Bovine Growth Hormone. This included legal pressure applied to Fox News to keep the American public in the dark about the potential health risk to humans who consume dairy products tainted with rBST. As you'll learn in the video, Canada said no to Monsanto and rBST.

Two former Fox investigative reporters attempted to honestly cover the story. Fox killed the story and fired their own reporters.

So much for, "We Report, You Decide," or, "Fair And Balanced."
