Even I am astonished by this one. Greg Miller of the National Dairy Council sends me all the studies that favor eating dairy products. This one is a classic (of sorts) from the Journal of the American Dietetic Association . The study compares the nutrient value of conventional milk, rbGH-free milk, and organic milk and finds–surprise!–no significant difference. In case you need a reminder, rbGH is recombinant bovine growth hormone, the genetically engineered hormone that increases milk production in cows. Monsanto makes it. OK, class: it’s quiz time. The study has ten authors. Guess who seven of them work for (or used to work for)? Guess who paid for the study? And what are the other three authors doing there?
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
