Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
This paper is the final part of thesis on comparing why the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the use of rbGH and the European Commission and Canada chose not to. The manufacturing process and history of recombinant bovine growth hormone is review. The approval process of the Food and Drug Administration and its investigation into Posilac is presented. Similarly the investigations of both the European Commission and Canadian Veterinary Medical Association are reviewed. The question as to why both came to opposite conclusions is examined. A conclusion of other factors besides scientific investigations played a role in this discrepancy.
Why is rbGH Banned in the EU and Accepted in the United States?
