Subject: Health Canada BGH Scandal Heats Up
Health Canada Scandal Heats Up-
Scientists Testify Before Senate Agriculture Committee
Thursday, October 22, 9:00 am, at the Parliament Buildings (Ottawa), Centre
Block, Room 160-S
(Meetings are open to the public)
Ottawa - On Thursday, October 22, the Health Canada scientists who authored
the "GAPS" report on BGH (genetically engineered bovine growth hormone,
also abbreviated rBST) will be appearing before the Senate Agriculture
Committee. The GAPS report describes the gaps in the understanding of BGH
and its hazards.
Because of the extreme controversy over BGH and its safety, and due to the
serious concerns by Health Canada scientists, the Senate Agriculture
Committee, which is reviewing BGH, has asked the scientists to appear
directly before it on October 22.
Several of these scientists are the same individuals who filed a grievance
that they are being pressured to approve products of questionable safety,
against their professional judgment. They have stated that the safety of
Canadians is being sacrificed due to industry pressure.
The meetings are open to the public, but individuals coming to the meetings
may want to come a little early.
PS. If you get this list more than once, I apologize. There are some
cross-over between lists.
