Ask for rBGH-Free Milk
I didn’t realize that Starbucks was using milk produced with artificial growth hormone, rBGH. Today was Food & Watch’s call in to tell Starbucks to Hold the Hormes and only buy rBGH-free milk. I remember watching a documentary on rBGH which has some pretty nasty effects on both cow and human health.
The campaign is making headway as Starbucks issued a statement today noting that “27 percent of the dairy we buy is already rBST-free and 37 percent will be rBST-free starting in January, 2007.”
For your next latte, be sure to ask your Starbucks barista to use rBGH-free milk which is technically available upon request.
