OMG NO RBST

Canadian milk is no place for artificial growth hormones

MEANS NO ARTIFICIAL GROWTH HORMONES

Since 1999, the artificial growth hormone rBST has been banned in Canada. Following a study in the 1990s, Health Canada  identified that when using rbST to increase milk production in dairy cows, there was a risk to animal health. Health Canada then declared the drug illegal for sale in Canada. 

100% CANADIAN MILK COMES FROM CANADIAN COWS

100% Canadian milk comes from Canadian cows where rbST is not allowed.

Canada's decision to keep rbST out of our dairy cows is just one of many of our higher standards.

Natural hormones are a part of all living things. They help stimulate the normal, healthy growth and functions of cells, organs, and skeleton in plants, animals and humans.  But what about artificial growth hormones? It is prohibited to use rbST, an artificial bovine growth hormone in Canada.
