Monsanto's fault: La Leche Argentina causes colon, breast and prostate cancer due to the hormone rBGH

Argentina and the United States are two of the few countries where the use of the recombinant bovine growth hormone, rBGH, is still allowed.

Monsanto's aggressive promotion of its biotech products, from recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) to “Roundup Ready” soybeans and their insect-resistant cotton varieties, appears to any observer as a continuation of their long decades of ethically questionable practices.

Argentina and the United States are two of the few countries where the use of the recombinant bovine growth hormone, rBGH, is still allowed. And the largest farms in Argentina continue to use it despite the fact that, since 1996 (National Press Club Washington D.C., January 23, 1996) it has been known to cause colon, prostate and breast cancer. Later, Canadian scientists (in 1998) discovered that cows treated with rBGH suffer from mastitis, infertility and exhaustion. Even Monsanto acknowledged that cows injected with rBGH "may suffer these effects to a greater extent", in addition to cystic ovaries, uterine and digestive disorders and ulcers (for which the milk is bombarded with antibiotics).

Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH, also known as Bovine Somatrotopin, or BST), is a genetically engineered copy of a hormone naturally produced by cows. RBGH is designed to make cows produce more milk than they would naturally produce. It works by altering the expression of the gene for glucose transporters in the cow's mammary gland, muscle, and fat. The gene facilitates the transfer of glucose to the mammary gland, causing it to produce more milk.

The most serious thing about drinking milk are the consequences on human health since human growth factor-1, IGF-1, is chemically identical to bovine. Specifically: European research concluded that rBGH y causes breast and prostate cancer in humans.

Posilac is the brand name Monsanto has given to the hormone rBGH

For a better understanding of the potential detrimental effects of rBGH in cows, one need only look at the warning label that the FDA requires Monsanto to include on every shipment of Posilac. The label highlights 21 health problems associated with the use of Posilac, including cystic ovaries, uterine disorders, decreased gestation time and calf birth weight, increased twin rate and retention of the placenta5.

Potentially the most serious problem, however, is the increased risk of mastitis or inflammation of the udders. A cow with mastitis produces milk with pus. Dairy companies will not accept milk that has an abnormally high number of somatic cells (eg a high proportion of pus), and mastitis can thus be a clear source of lost income for farmers. Many try to tackle the problem with the use of antibiotics, but antibiotic residues in milk are suspected to cause problems in humans who drink it, and also contribute to the development of antibiotic resistance among bacteria6.

Do you have acquaintances who died of cancer? Have you noticed the increase in cancer cases in recent years? Multiple studies conducted around the world, many of which were brought to justice where independent researchers defeated Monsanto, found that Bovine Growth Hormone causes IGF-1 levels exceeding the normal range, directly influencing the development of tumors.

Scientists have found that Bovine Growth Hormone causes prostate, breast, colorectal (colon) and other cancers.

* The use of rBGH is allowed in the United States and Argentina. Instead, it is banned in Canada, the European Union, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. But Argentine businessmen continue to poison people.
