In its assessment, the FDA did not report that BST or IGF-1 pose any risk either in humans or animals that consume cows’ milk. As with other technologies that increase productivity, a concern frequently raised is why more milk is needed when the developed world appears to have more than enough of the product. One answer is that increased productivity translates into fewer animals, producing less waste and utilizing less land—an extremely important consideration for future land management use. The greatest concerns about BST are probably in the area of animal welfare.

The policy framework ultimately determines the scientific questions that the regulatory process must address, and the manner in which it must address them. Although the committee’s charge is limited to addressing science-based concerns, the committee notes that (1) socially, politically, and ethically determined factors influence both the nature of scientific research and the interpretation of data, (2) how one addresses scientific uncertainty or the importance of various concerns that result from introduction of a proposed technology is influenced by political and ethical considerations, and (3) technologies often have impacts on social, political, economic, religious, and spiritual conditions or values which, in turn, might impact health and the environment.
