News from drug-free America

Some of this news is old, but it is still relevant.

Obesity in America: will it get worse before it gets better?

(Excerpt)
Diabetes is the disease most closely linked to being overweight. Since 1990, type 2 diabetes has jumped by 33 percent nationwide. Further, a growing number of persons with type 2 diabetes are adolescents, a disease formerly seen mostly in overweight adults. Other diseases associated with too much weight include high blood pressure, various heart diseases and conditions, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and other respiratory problems, and certain cancers.

OVERWEIGHT IN AMERICA - GOT MILK?

(Excerpt)
Milk contains plenty of calories, growth hormones, fat, and cholesterol. The most powerful growth hormone in the human body is identical to the most powerful growth hormone in a cow's body. That hormone instructs every cell in the human body to grow. Children are becoming overweight at an early age. By eating growth hormones in combination with animal fat, the body has a way of listening to the signals of those chemical messengers: GROW!

Monsanto's Genetically Modified Milk Ruled Unsafe by the United Nations
CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 1999 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/

(Excerpt)
It is now 15 years since Monsanto embarked on a series of large scale veterinary trials on rBGH all over the U.S., and sold milk from these trials to an uninformed and unsuspecting public with the full approval of the FDA. Since then, Monsanto and the FDA, strongly supported by a network of indentured university academics, aggressive lobbying by the National Dairy Council and its well organized "hit squads" targeting rBGH opponents, and an overwhelmingly uncritical media, have ignored or trivialized substantial scientific evidence on the hazards of rBGH milk, including a series of publications over the last decade in the International Journal of Health Services, the most prestigious international public health publication. Also ignored by the media have been charges in 1981 by Congressman John Conyers (then Chairman of the House Committee on Government Operations), on the basis of a leaked confidential Monsanto study revealing serious pathology in cows injected with rBGH, that "Monsanto and the FDA have chosen to suppress and manipulate animal health test data in efforts to approve commercial use of rBGH".
