EC extends dairy hormone ban
THE European Commission has extended its ban on a package of artificial hormones to boost cow milk production because of harm to the animals and possible risk to human health.
The ban on artificial bovine somatotrophin (BST) was first imposed in 1990 and reaffirmed in 1994.
