Ohio Court Rules Milk from rBGH Cows is "Compositionally Different"

Court challenged the FDA’s finding that there is “no measurable compositional difference” between milk from rbGH-treated cows and milk from untreated cows

The court challenged the FDA’s finding that there is “no measurable compositional difference” between milk from rbGH-treated cows and milk from untreated cows. According to those who have worked on this issue for nearly two decades now (maybe more), the FDA’s claim that there was no compositional difference between milk from rbGH-treated and untreated cows was THE MAJOR roadblock to any good regulation. And the court finally struck it down, citing three reasons why the milk differs:

  • Increased levels of the hormone IGF-1;
  • A period of milk with lower nutritional quality during each lactation; and
  • Increased somatic cell counts (i.e. more pus in the milk).
