Starbucks to stop use of rBGH
I read an interview with the CEO of Starbucks, and I think I heard about this before, but he mentioned it again in the interview. Starbucks is phasing out use of milk that contains Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, which is a nasty little drug created by Monsanto to get more milk out of cows. I recently saw a story about this in the documentary "The Corporation", and the effects of this drug, how it affects the cows and how it can possibly affect us, and how the FDA just rubber-stamped it, whereas it's banned in Canada and Europe, are just too terrifying to contemplate. So, if I have a favorite corporation, it'd probably be Starbucks.
