[Rachel's introduction: Our story last week about Monsanto's hormone-
treated milk was accurate, but the introduction we added to the
story was not.]

Last week in our introduction to the story linking Monsanto's milk
additive, bovine growth hormone (rBGH, also known as rBST), to a
five-fold increases in the chances of a woman giving birth to twins,
we mischaractertized the study described in the story. The story that
we ran was accurate, but our introduction to the story erroneously
stated that the study being reported compared women drinking Monsanto-
treated milk against women drinking normal milk. In fact the study
compared women drinking Monsanto-treated milk against women drinking
no milk.
