FRESH activists win again! We have yet another victory for the good movement; this time, it’s over drugged milk. With your help, we sent nearly 3,000 letters to Gov. Strickland demanding that he cancel the absurd law which banned the use of the “rBGH free” label. Just last week, a federal judge struck down the law, ruling that milk from cows treated with rBGH is compositionally different from untreated milk, and consumers have the right to know if they’re buying milk with synthetic hormones in it. This is a major victory, and will hopefully set a serious precedent for labeling, especially in light of the battle against genetically modified salmon. We will keep fighting!
