More than 90% of Americans want mandatory labelling on hormone-enhanced milk. But they're not going to get it as long as Monsanto has a say in it. Monsanto has even paid for a law that makes it illegal for a store to advertise that it sells hormone-free milk -- and they have sued stores that try!
(NaturalNews) The truth has once again shaken the foundation of the 'American Tower of Babel' that is mainstream science, with a new study out of Harvard University showing that pasteurized milk product from factory farms is linked to causing hormone-dependent cancers
There's a lot I don't know but the claims in this pargaraph SEEM to be wildly excessive, making me doubt the validity of the rest of it.
Giant transnational corporations like Monsanto, in collusion with the World Bank and the World Trade Organization, seek to commodify and privatize the world's water and put it on the open market for sale to the highest bidder. Millions of the world's citizens are being deprived of this fundamental human right, and vast ecological damage is being wrought as massive industry claims water once used to sustain communities and replenish nature. In Cochabamba, Bolivia, the people, led by union leader Oscar Olivera, forced the giant engineering company Bechtel, a globalist partner of Monsanto, to leave the country and stopped a World Bank–imposed privatization scheme that more than doubled the price of water to the local people. The mainstream press was, of course, reluctant to tell this story.

Complete and utter misrepresentation of the truth.
You're falling for naturalnews' agenda here, hook line and sinker.
This has NOTHING to do with pasteurisation and everything to do with modern battery farming techniques.
Please, the issue is concerning enough without the BS layered on top of it!
Removing ‘Navigable’ From CWA Creates Regulatory Quicksand
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 22, 2009 – Legislation that would remove the word “navigable” from the Clean Water Act (CWA) and allow the Corps of Engineers and Environmental Protection Agency to regulate all interstate and intrastate waters could put farmers in “regulatory quicksand,” according to Missouri Farm Bureau President Charlie Kruse.
Missouri Farm Bureau President Charlie Kruse testified before the House Small Business Committee regarding the Clean Water Act.
Testifying today on behalf of the American Farm Bureau Federation before the House Small Business Committee, Kruse, a Dexter, Mo. corn producer, said the bill leads to increased compliance costs, burdensome permit processes and extends the reach of the Clean Water Act to any body of water in the United States.
Kruse cited a number of cases that point out the hurdles farmers across the country will face if the Clean Water Restoration Act (S. 787) is approved. In one example, Kruse told the account of a small farmer in Minnesota who wanted to improve existing drainage on 11 acres of his land.
“USDA and the state did not consider his land a wetland, but the Corps did,” Kruse testified. “They told him he needed both a permit and 17.7 acres of mitigation. The cost of compliance – $77,000 – was more than the property was worth, and the farmer could not afford to comply.”
In 2009, Polaris submitted a nomination of the United Nations' CEO Water Mandate in the 'Greenwash' category for its role in facilitating greater control of water resources by multinational corporations while simultaneously 'greenwashing' socially and environmentally damaging corporate behavior.
“Not only does the Global Compact and the CEO Water Mandate facilitate more corporate control of water,” said Richard Girard, “but, it makes the United Nations an apologist and enabler of corporate greenwashing.”
Established under the auspices of the United Nations’ Global Compact, the CEO Water Mandate is a voluntary, non-binding, public-private partnership. Under the guise of environmental stewardship, the CEO Water Mandate provides multinational corporations--including well-documented environmental abusers such as Coca Cola, Dow Chemical, Nestlé, Royal Dutch Shell and Suez--with a platform to directly influence governments in order to secure continued access to water. As a result, these companies are allowed to conceal their socially and environmentally damaging operations with the blue flag of the United Nations.
“The United Nations has no business facilitating corporate water grabs,” said Tony Clarke, Director of the Polaris Institute. “Instead, the UN should return to the mandate they abandoned some 35 years ago, effectively regulating the operations of transnational corporations around the world.”
Dr. Davaasambuu cited a study comparing diet and cancer rates in 42 countries that showed a strong correlation between milk and cheese consumption and the incidence of testicular cancer among men age 20 to 39 – rates were highest in high consuming countries such as Switzerland and Denmark and low in Algeria and other parts of the world where people eat less dairy. She also linked rising rates of dairy consumption to the increased death rates from prostate cancer (from near zero per 100,000 men five decades ago to seven per 100,000 men today) and noted that breast cancer also appears to be linked to milk and cheese consumption.

...Limit milk and dairy products to one to two servings per day, since high intakes are associated with increased risk of prostate cancer and possibly ovarian cancer.
