Wal-Mart Milk

I just got this in an e-mail from my mom. I thought my f-list should know about it because some of you have daughters and/or are women yourselves.

I CHECKED THIS OUT AT SNOPES.COM ( http://snopes.com/ ), YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ
ABOUT IT ALSO. HERE IS THE WEB SITE: http://www.snopes.com/medical/potables/walmart.asp
WAL-MART MILK

Subject: Just in case any of you shop at Wal-Mart like me, you might want to
reconsider buying their Milk after reading this... Please read this and pass
along to as many people as you can think of.

Mitzi Lyons and her husband Kyle live in Gainesville, TX. Their daughter,
Marissa, has been experiencing menstrual problems (bleeding every day) for three
years and within the last year; she started producing milk (lactating). They
have performed every test, every surgery, put her on birth control and in
January were scheduled to undergo a hysterectomy.

NEVERTHELESS, Mitzi's dad started researching his granddaughter's condition on
the internet found out about RBST in milk. RBST is a hormone injected into cows
to produce more milk. Wal-Mart Great Value milk contains RBST and is the brand
that the Lyons family has used for years. Three months ago, they pulled Marissa
off Great Value Milk and she quit bleeding and lactating. Her doctors in Houston
are going to write a medical journal discovery about her case, because the FDA
says that RBST is safe.

Mitzi asked me to please share this with everyone I could think of to I hope
that save someone the pain and suffering that Marissa has endured.

I have pulled my family from Wal-Mart Great Value milk and bought Borden
instead. Borden has a label on their milk that states that RBST is not used on
their cows.
