This is a false statement. There is no law stating that any farmer organic or otherwise is not allowed to treat a sick cow. Here is what this actually means.
If any farmer needs to treat a cow with antibiotics the milk cannot be used whether it is organic or not. ALL MILK IS TESTED BEFORE IT GOES TO MARKET.
The farmers milk is tested before being mixed into one big vat for processing. If a farmer treated a cow with antibiotics and then sent the milk in for processing the FDA can trace the source. No milk with antibiotics is allowed for sale organic or non organic. If the farmer gets caught selling antibiotic milk he is then forced to buy the entire lot he contaminated.
A cow treated with antibiotics has to be taken out of production and allowed to rest for a certain period of time.
BHT is a growth hormone that is given to cows to produce larger quantities of milk. This hormone is not regulated by the FDA except that for ogranic milk it is not allowed to be used on organic cows. BHT can be tested for to prove that the milk does not have BHT.
These articles are designed by the food industries that are loosing market share in the chemical food processing chain. This type of article is war on consumers rights to know what is in their food. If one goes to justlabelit.org you can find out more about what is in your food supply.
The organization just label it is fighting for consumers so we know what is on our food. Their goal is not to stop production of chemical foods but so that the consumer is aware of what we are buying. While most people may not think knowing is important it is extremely important for people who have severe food allergies to know if their food has been genetically modified with some sort of nut gene if they are allergic to nuts. Foods that aren't supposed to contain these genes then become a death sentence for these people. Also if someone has celiacs disease it is important for them to know what is in their food.
I really wish people would do their research about what is going on with our food supply.
