THE MYSTERY IN YOUR MILK
Part I, Version 29
This is the unaltered rBGH story prepared by Jane Akre and Steve Wilson of WTVT of Tampa, Florida, which the Fox-owned television station would not allow on the air.
NATSND, milk pouring into glass up/under for upcoming NARRATION
Thurman Hatten, Florida Dairy Farmer: "Yes I would say, people in Florida are using it. (Reporter Jane Akre) And you yourself? (Hatten) Ahh
Farmer Hatten continues: " its possible I could be using it."
Dr. Samuel Epstein, Scientist, University of Illinois: " there are highly suggestive if not persuasive lines of evidence showing that consumption of this milk poses risks of breast and colon cancer."
Dr. William Von Meyer, research scientist: "We're going to save some lives if we review this now. If we allow BGH to go on, Im sure were taking excessive risks with society."
Dr. Robert Collier, chief Monsanto BGH scientist: "In fact, the FDA has commented several times on this issue after there were concerns raised. They have publicly restated human safety confidence this is not something knowledgeable people have concerns about."
Calf in pen: "Moo!"
Video clip of Monsanto sales tape: "Of course youll want to inject Posilac into every eligible cow, as each cow not treated is a lost income opportunity."
Charles Knight, Florida Dairy Farmer: "Its a tool that can be used but you better be careful cause it can burn you "
Dr. Robert Collier: " this is the most studied molecule certainly in the history of domestic animal science."
Dr. William von Meyer, Research Scientist: "A human drug requires two years of carcinogenic testing and extensive birth defect testing. BGH was tested for 90 days on 30 rats at any dose before it was approved."
Dr. Robert Collier: "But suffice it to say the cancer experts don't see the health issue and it's unfortunate the public is being scared by an issue that shouldnt be of concern."
Reporter Jane Akre standup: "So just how many dairy cows in Florida are being injected with this synthetic hormone? No one knows for sure, but its enough to virtually assure that at least some of the milk in every jug you bring home from the supermarket these days comes from treated cows."
Clip of consumer protestors chanting: " No more BGH, No more BGH"
Milk pouring into tall glass.
Jane Akre, Fox 13 News
THE MYSTERY IN YOUR MILK
Cow in field: "Moooo"
Fred Gore, Florida Dairy farmer: "they help tell me if proper procedures are being followed."
Farmer Gore: "Shes giving 121 pounds a day."
Clip from Monsanto sales tape: "Posilac is the single most-tested product in history and it helps increase your profit potential."
Charles Knight, Florida Dairy Farmer: "About the same time we began having a lot of foot problems with our cows because they got so crippled they couldnt walk."
Farmer Knight: "It was like overwhelming because they said youre the only person having this problem so it must be what youre doing here you must be having management problems."
Dr. Michael Hanson, Scientist, Consumers Union: "So for example, if you drank milk that had residues of eurythymicin in it, then bacteria in your stomach could pick up resistance to that eurythymicin so that if you came down with an illness you wouldnt be able to use eurythymicin to treat it."
Dr. Collier: "Not only is every tank truck load tested but a sample is taken from every bulk tank that way if a truck is found to be contaminated you have to be able to identify which farm it came from."
Dr. Hanson: "In fact there is over 60 drugs that they believe can be used on farms and they test for a very small percentage of them."
File video of consumer protestors chanting: "Boycott bgh, boycott bgh "
Dr. Collier: "There are no human or animal safety issues that would prevent approval in Canada once theyve completed their review, not that Im aware of."
NATSOT: "Monsanto Canada whose representative allegedly raised the subject of money .:
File video clip of CBC documentary, CBC Correspondent to committee member: "Is that how it struck you? (Dr. Edwards) Certainly!"
Reporter Jane Akre on camera: "Monsanto said the report alleging bribery was "a blatant untruth", that Canadian regulators just didnt understand the offer of the money was for research. Monsanto demanded a retraction. The Canadian Broadcasting Company stands by its story."
Dr. Michael Hansen: "Monsanto has a very checkered history with some of its other products "
Charles Knight, Florida Dairyman: " so how many more hundreds of complaints out there sat and were not registered with FDA?"
Reporter Jane Akre to Riley Hogan, Tampa Dairy Co-Op: "Have you ever gotten a communication from a grocer or processing plant asking your members not to use it? (Hogan) No maam."
Hogan: "Its only an issue if you make it an issue!"
Jane Akre, Fox 13 News.
THE MYSTERY IN YOUR MILK
Riley Hogan, Tampa Dairy Co-op: " to them and certainly to me its a non-issue and I think to the general public its been somewhat of a non-issue."
Jeff LeMaster, Consumer/Dad: "And for her now that shes eating people food we want to give her as much good stuff without the chemical additives as possible."
Dr. Robert Collier, chief Monsanto BGH scientist: "What they need to know is that the milk hasn't changed and that's the important thing here-the milk hasn't changed.
Dr. Samuel Epstein, University of Illinois: " there are highly suggestive if not persuasive lines of evidence showing that consumption of this milk poses risks of breast and colon cancer."
File Video, consumer protestors chanting: "Boycot BGH! "
Riley Hogan, Tampa Dairy Co-op: "For good business reasons Publix and I both wanted to avoid the use of the product until there was public acceptance."
Reporter Jane Akre to Riley Hogan: "Did any of the dairymen get back to you? (Hogan) No. (Akre) What was their response? (Hogan) They accepted it I guess. They didnt respond. (Akre) Did you follow-up with them and ask if they were using it? (Hogan) No, maam. (Akre) Was this sort of a dont-ask-dont-tell policy, then? (Hogan) No, no.
Reporter Steve to Hogan: "Was anything ever done to make sure they were honoring the request by Publix? I mean I know you honored the request, you wrote the letter, but did anybody ever do anything to see (Hogan) I did not do anything more, no sir. (Wilson) and did Publix ask you to do more? (Hogan) I dont recall. I dont think so but I dont recall.
Riley Hogan: "I could not in any way assure them that they would not in any way have milk from treated cows."
Ken Deaton, Florida Dairyman: "I know we've used it since 1993!"
Natural sounds of dairy barn
Fred Gore, Dairy Farmer: "It speeds up their metabolism where theyll eat more feed and give more milk."
Reporter Jane Akre to Ben and Jerry: "Does that have BGH in it? Absolutely not!"
Jerry Greenfield, Ben and Jerrys Ice Cream: "My son eats a lot of ice cream, drinks a lot of milk, eats a lot of cheese and given the choice I want him eating products that dont have BGH in them."
Jane Akre, Fox 13 News.
THE MYSTERY IN YOUR MILK
Ben Cohen, Ben and Jerrys Ice Cream: "A big part of the issue is that consumers are well aware that what the FDA said was fine and healthy 10 and 20 years ago, the FDA is saying is really bad for you today
Dr. Robert Collier, chief Monsanto BGH scientist: " This is a product that was the most extensively reviewed product ever to go through the Center for Veterinary Medicine so ah-the implication that something wasnt done thoroughly is not true."
Ben Cohen continues: "Thalidomide, Saccharin, DDT, you know, so a lot of consumers are starting to say I want to make my own decisions."
Jerry Greenfield, Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream: "If someone wants to buy ice cream that is BGH-free, how is somebody gonna know? If they want to buy milk for their kids and they dont want BGH in it, how do they know? They cant even know!"
Dr. William von Meyer, research scientist: "The city council there voted 11 to 1 to label milk and that went to the legislature of New York and Monsanto was able to influence legislative votes so a mandatory label law was not enacted."
Robert Crawford, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs: "There are a lot of things you could label and inundate the consumer with all kinds of information thats not necessary and this is one of them."
Reporter Jane Akre on camera: "Here in Florida no legislator has ever proposed a law to require dairy products be labeled so you can easily identify which come from BGH-treated cows. Commissioner Crawford says he would oppose such a law. He and a number of state lawmakers have received generous contributions from Monsanto and Florida dairy interests but Crawford says that had no influence on his position because he doesnt even recall the gifts.
Commissioner Crawford: "If they did I appreciate it but it wont effect this issue, it must not have been very much or I would have remembered it."
Natural sounds at Golden Fleece dairy
Glen Norton, Golden Fleece Dairy: "From the information I heard and read I was afraid at some point that if we tried to do extra labeling that Monsanto could cause damage to my small, fragile business."
Dr. Robert Collier: "In fact, there are quite a few co-ops that
do just that and we have not opposed that at all."
Glen Norton: "I think hormone (free) is the best way to describe it and other products will follow suit, and in a generic sense it will cover all the bases."
Ben Cohen: "The tremendous amount of chemicals thats used in conventional agriculture is having a horrible effect on the environment and on the health of our citizens and our customers and you know, (laugh), if you want to say is it our self-interest? Yeah! We want to keep our customers alive. They eat more ice cream when theyre alive!"
Dr. Samuel Epstein, research scientist: "Were living in the greatest democracy in the world in many ways but in other ways we're in a corporate dictatorship in which big government and big industry decide what information the consumer can and should have and its the objective of me and the Cancer Prevention Coalition to assure that this information be made available and let the public decide (c/a) ...and let grass-root citizens take over where government and industry has failed."
