Safe for Schools Scientists

Scientists and physicians at the American Council on Science and Health today applauded the decision of the New York City Board of Education not to ban milk from c that increases milk production. As ACSH President Dr. Elizabeth Whelan has pointed out, rBGH occurs naturally in cows milk in very small quantities, and adding rBGH does not affect the quantity of rBGH found in the milk. Furthermore, public misunderstanding about the safety and benefits of rBGH is common: Many consumers do not receive factual information about biotechnology; and, even worse, many hear misinformation.
