Hormone Labeling Is Part Of Nutrition Facts, Too:
If Al Gore,
After inventing the internet,
Can get labels on food telling us what the Nutrition Facts are,
Wouldn’t it be nice to know about the other stuff that goes into making it? -Like the chemicals and drugs, etc.
Now, I am never one to advocate looking into an Industrial Sausage Press, or a Hot Dog Factory.
-Because sometimes, you really don’t want to know what goes into the food, as long as it’s been above 350F externally and 165F internally.
While it’s true I haven’t had a hot dog in about 86 years, (as the ones bought back then have kept magnificently due to industrial preservatives) -Now is not one of those times I’d recommend Not knowing what’s in, or going into producing, the food.
Hormone Labeling Is Just As Important As Every Other Part Of The Food, Especially For Dairy.
Ben and Jerry’s agree, at least partly, in their campaign to get milk products labeled according to what Hormones and Antibiotics are used on the animals producing it.
Bafflingly, some states and producers -namely Monsanto- who say there is no difference between organic and hormone/antibiotic-ized milk, are trying to block Ben & Jerry’s efforts! -Stinkers!
Perhaps Jane Plant of “Your Life In Your Hands” would agree with Ben & Jerry on hormone labeling for food and dairy; just a bit…
