Tell Ohio’s Governor Strickland to abandon his rbGH (rbST) labeling restrictions.
Developed by Monsanto and now sold by Eli Lilly, the hormone rbGH is designed to increase cows' milk production. Problem is, it significantly impacts the health of cows, and it increases a hormone in the milk that is linked to colon, breast and prostate cancers.
The Organic Trade Association and the International Dairy Foods Association sued the state of Ohio and LOST. Their case is now in appeal.
Demand that Ohio abandon its deadly labeling requirements NOW, before a possible loss in the appeals court forces dairies nationwide to change their labels or give up rBGH-free labeling altogether. This rule would affect dairy labeling on a national level. Regardless of what state you live in, please take a moment to tell Ohio Governor Strickland that people have a right to know what's in their food.
This letter will be sent to BOTH Governor Strickland and his Press Secretary immediately. Let's make them listen!
