Michael Taylor is the current deputy commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration appointed by President Barack Obama. Taylor spent decades as a lawyer for Monsanto and, in the same FDA position in the Clinton administration, was responsible for approving rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone, produced by Monsanto) use in America. This growth hormone, when consumed through dairy products, is known to increase by seven times the risk of breast, prostate and colon cancer. It is currently banned in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the entire European Union. We respectfully request that president Obama remove people with conflict of interest from positions where they can manipulate the laws for personal or corporate gain.
