Raw Milk

New Science Confirms that Drinking Raw Milk is Remarkably Safe

All of those antiquated government talking points about the alleged dangers of drinking raw milk have once again been debunked, this time by a series of scientific risk assessments recently published in the Journal of Food Protection. A press release published in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) explains that, based on the results of three new quantitative microbial risk assessments (QMRAs), as well as the review of dozens of other scholarly papers on the subject, raw milk is very clearly a low-risk food that is generally safe for everyone, including pregnant women and young children.

Caramel apples that killed five people tainted with same bacteria used to vilify raw milk; FDA doesn't issue ban

By Benson: (NaturalNews) A nationwide outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes has been traced back to at least three brands of caramel apples sold throughout the U.S. According to reports, five people have died and at least 30 others from 10 states made ill after consuming the tainted apples, which appear to have come from a California-based supplier.

Libertarian-minded lawmakers finally waking up to the issue of food freedom


Democrats and libertarians are increasingly taking up the issue of food freedom, with a number of left-wing lawmakers increasingly siding with Americans who believe that farmers should have the right to sell fresh cow's milk to neighbors if they want, without government regulation or interference.

Momentum builds in Congress to end raw milk prohibition nationwide


Buying and selling raw dairy products across state lines has been outlawed in the U.S. since the late 1980s, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided that Americans were no longer free to make their own food decisions without government approval.

Europe embraces healthy raw dairy by unveiling fresh milk vending machines


As the U.S. government continues to wage war on raw dairy products, several European countries have done just the opposite by expanding access to the food through unpasteurized milk vending machines. Taking to heart findings from current research, Europe has recognized the exceptional health benefits of raw dairy and subsequently promoted it. Compared with pasteurized and homogenized dairy, raw milk offers a wealth of nutrition - all without the drawbacks of oxidized fats, denatured proteins, antibiotics or growth hormones.

South Dakota Department of Agriculture pushing to make raw milk less accessible to public


The corporate food police are back at it again, trying to eliminate consumer access to farm-fresh fare, this time in South Dakota, where the state's agriculture department is pushing hard to pass burdensome new raw milk regulations. The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund reports that the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) recently held its third round of hearings on proposed new rules that would place undue financial and regulatory burdens on family farmers, which in turn could drive many of them out of business.
