Monsanto-Free Hormones

Some good-ish news from the world of agribusiness. Monsanto has reported that it’s leaving the recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone business. The Ethicurean asks whether Monsanto’s exit from the market might be because people are worried about the toxic effects of rBGH in their milk. Monsanto, however, insists that “This is really a great product… Business has been strong. Sales have been strong.” So that’s all cleared up then.
