rBGH: Organic milk production footprint | PCC Natural Markets

Science supports organic

Milk is not milk. Many studies demonstrate nutritional and health differences between organic and non-organic dairy.

Milk from organic cows contains 50 to 80 percent more antioxidants and healthy fats, significantly higher levels of vitamin E, of antioxidants beta carotene, lutein and zeathanthin, more heart-healthy anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids — all highest in summer when cows eat more grass and clover.

Studies confirm that an organic diet "provides a dramatic and immediate protective effect" against commonly used agricultural pesticides that can cause delays in mental and motor skills, and learning disorders.
