These big corporations and organizations don't even care about covering it up anymore, they think they have finally got us over a barrel and we can't do anything about it. They own the government now and most laws are made in their favor. What can we do, they control all the food now. They can shut down everything.
The few little farmers that exist can't supply the country. We are at their mercy.

No, no. Come up with a product that's better for you and ABLE to produce at a cost within a slightly reasonable realm. Remember, like I said, they're distributing these things to MILLIONS. When you hit that scale (one you probably can't fathom, by the looks of it.) you can't care for each individual product any longer. Any food you begin to distribute on such a scale, then newer, quicker, more efficient precautions are needed. This is NOT new, it's not healthy, but it's not new!! Name one mass-producing company that hasn't had one bout with a news story with the "cancer-causing" chemical theme. You people act like this IS news. In fact, I see them put on Fox and every other News network almost monthly, so... why would Fox choose to "silence" this one and not all the others?
Nobody likes the chemicals that are needed to keep live-stock uninfected or whatever else in their food. That's why there is such an organic uproar. But it's necessary on production scales like that, and I tell you one thing... if one Organic company ever gets THAT big, you will start hearing the same stuff, just in a different way. "But this company was supposed to be organic, why do they put these chemicals in it!"....
And, as the world continues to grow, cheaper and more efficient chemicals WILL be introduced. It is one of the many inevitable parts of being alive today. It sucks, yes. But you shouldn't be drinking enough milk or doing anything else so unhealthy that it should matter. Just like with all the food.
The proper term here is probably carcinogen. This product probably has a lot of carcinogens. And guess what? Milk helps fight carcinogens, and so does your body naturally. So get to eating as healthy as you can and being as healthy as possible otherwise.
(I typed this before the last paragraph so it may seem redundant.....)
And no, these things don't HAVE cancer in them, they have things that may be a contributing factor to causing cancer, and my point was WHAT DOESN'T!!!!!!!!! Walking down the street inhaling exhaust contributes to cancer, a hundred-fold depending on the city you live in.
