American Public Health Association Officially Opposes rbGH Use

The American Public Health Association (APHA), the world’s oldest professional public health organization, opposes the use of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH) in dairy and meat cows, joining a growing list of public health organizations, including Health Care Without Harm, the American Nurses Association, and Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, and virtually all animal-welfare organizations in their opposition. APHA recommends the US Food and Drug Administration ban rbGH; hospitals, schools, and institutions catering to children should buy rbGH-free dairy products; producers should retain the right to label their products as rbGH-free; and public health organizations should support increased federal research.
