Junkfood Science: Would you like some coffee with your milk?

Would you like some coffee with your milk?

If you were left feeling worried about the safety of your milk after hearing news that a specialty coffee retailer will no longer sell milk containing hormones, then you’ll be relieved to know it was just a marketing tactic in response to a high-pressure campaign by a special interest group; a group that has promoted similar scare campaigns over bird flu, mad cow and food safety.

The Reuter news story on Starbuck’s announcement gave the company’s marketing angle. However, it failed to report on what the scientists offer on the subject — irrefutable evidence that there is nothing to fear from hormones in our milk.

In case you missed it, Junkfood Science revealed the science in a recent post here.
