Jane Akre and Steve Wilson discuss the events involved in their firing from FOX, regarding Bovine Growth Hormone and their refusal to falsify claims about its link to cancer. "Almost all of the milk sold in the United States is a cancer-causing concoction full of a growth hormone manufactured by Monsanto called ‘Posilac,’ or ‘BGH,’ otherwise known as ‘rBGH’ or bovine growth hormone."
"The widespread consumption of BST [rBGH] supplemented milk is therefore an experiment on an unsuspecting population that could have horrendous consequences and overwhelm the health care system. The experiment would take one to three decades when it would be difficult to dismantle a well-entrenched BST [rBGH] industry, and still have one to three decades' worth of individuals in the pipeline. I can conceive of no animal experiments to test this and to provide hard data to predict the magnitude and time frame for this effect. The risk to benefit ratio of this experiment is clearly not in favor of the consumer." [George L. Tritsch, Cancer Research Scientist (Retired), August 7, 1995]
