    recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH)


    The other day I bought some protein power because it was on clearance. Upon reading the labels more I noticed it was advertising rBGH free. I knew minimal information about how cows were injected with growth hormones, but decided to look into it a little bit. Anyone else worry about products from cows injected with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH)? I guess the United States is the only developed nation to permit humans to drink milk from cows given artificial growth hormones...

    Does bovine growth hormone even cause a problem if ingested? I though all those protein based hormones would be broken down into their constituent amino acid bases and absorbed, that's why you can't ingest igf or hgh right?

    RBGH, also known as recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST), is an artificially synthesized version of the growth hormone that normally...rBGH is genetically engineered Bovine Growth Hormone injected into lactating cows so that they produce more milk.European nations and Canada have banned rBGH to protect citizens from IGF-1 hazards.
