Guess the sponsor: rbGH milk study
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?
