WHY YOU SHOULD DRINK RAW MILK

Based on information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 3% of the population consumes raw milk. That’s over 9 million people when applied to 2010 census data. “Using government figures for foodborne illness for the entire population, Dr. Ted Beals, MD has shown that you are about thirty-five thousand times more likely to get sick from other foods than you are from raw milk“.1

BENEFITS OF RAW MILK
  • grass fed raw cow’s milk is 5 times higher in the highly beneficial fatty acid conjugated linoleic acid
  • no Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), a synthetic hormone used to increase milk production which is banned  in the European Union and Canada due to health concerns
  • pasteurization kills the enzymes your body needs to digest the milk’s lactose and calcium
  • the high heat of  pasteurization alters the cholesterol allowing it to enter your bloodstream undigested where it can clog arteries
  • the nutritional content of grass fed cows is higher in Omega-3 EFA’s and vitamin A, E, and betacarotene
 
 
PRECAUTIONS2
  • raw milk, like any food, can carry pathogens which can make you ill
  • verify the source of your raw milk is produced in a clean facility.  Production of raw milk requires a much higher standard of cleanliness than pasteurized milk production
  • make sure the cows eat only grass from a pesticide free source
  • cows purchased from a commercial dairy are not safe sources of raw milk
  • verify your farmer is testing for brucellosis, tuberculosis and Jones disease
  • test the milk.  It should last 2 weeks in your frig without going sour
