There is a form of milk that is much more dangerous than other milk. According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, this suspect kind of milk was linked to 10 times more cases of illnesses than the healthy kind from 1980 to 2005. Federal officials and authorities in 20 states have declared a milk war, but they’ve mostly picked the wrong side.
The Price Foundation reports it was pasteurized milk with the questionable record, while raw milk was the healthy alternative.
Raw-Milk-Facts.com reports that “clean, raw milk from grass-fed cows was actually used as a medicine in the early part of the last century.” In fact, the use of raw milk is documented back to the time of Hippocrates, the father of Greek medicine. But certain key enzymes, as well as beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus, are destroyed by the pasteurization process.
Turning to the headlines, The Washington Times reported this past February, Feds Shut Down Amish Farm for Selling Fresh Milk. There are countless stories like that, and it has caught the attention of US Senator Rand Paul, of Kentucky. He recently told fellow Senators, “I think we have bigger problems in our country without sending armed FDA agents onto peaceful farmers' land and telling them they can't sell milk directly from the cow.”
This past week, Senator Paul offered an amendment to the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act that would have stopped such raids, as well as harassment of health food stores. It failed by a vote of 78 to 15. I guess diversity is considered a good thing, except when it threatens the monopoly of Big Pharma and the Food Industry. After all, they help get politicians elected.
