Re: healthy milk

If you plan to drink raw milk, you should inform yourself about listeriosis:
http://www.cdc.gov/listeria/index.html (WFS)

Note that I am NOT saying you shouldn't drink raw milk. Just that you should understand the reason for pasteurization before you decide it's unimportant.

Re: healthy milk

If regular milk doesn't agree with you try coconut milk, it's pretty delicious.

Re: healthy milk

I have been drinking raw milk for a few weeks now. I will say start slowly with it as you can over do it and it will cause some gastro distress but if you go slowly and up it a little at a time it is amazingly good!!! It is so delicious and it taste more like drinking heavy cream like I used to put in my coffee.

Living in NJ it is hard to get, but I have a guy lol

Enjoy!!!

Re: healthy milk

No one else has mentioned it here yet so I will, if your looking for a good milk I would recomend almond milk. I drank regular milk for a long time and made the switch to almond milk and haven't looked back. Good source of protein and not nearly as much sugar as regular proccessed milk.

Is it pasteurized? If so I may need to look into that. I recently made the switch to raw milk and I love it. However, its VERY expensive ($11/gallon, $5.50/half gallon).

I wish it was that cheap here.

Re: healthy milk

We get the raw milk here for $10 a gallon but that is also paying someone to bring it across from PA which is 50 miles away.

So worth it though

I think there is more to this then that. I agree that your suggestion to find information is important.

I would suggest looking at the statistics for diseases of pasteurized versus non-pasteurized milk. The CDC openly states that 2 deaths occurred from drinking raw milk OR raw milk products from 1998 to 2009 nationally.

http://www.cdc.gov/foodsafety/rawmil...ers.html#years

They also report on 3 deaths occurring from listeria in 2007 from drinking pasteurized milk, in the state of Massachusetts.

http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5740a1.htm

I think rates of consumption needs to occur with this conversation, but neither source goes to in depth on that.

First off, all of these deaths are unfortunate. Furthermore, the fact that 2 deaths occurred in 11 years from raw milk, compared to 3 in 1 year within 1 state from pasteurized milk, is quite shocking and revealing to the CDC's stance on this. Like I said before, I think there is more to this then meets the eye.

Re: healthy milk

Just did some research. I live in a city of 1.5-2mil people, theres ONE place that i can find that does raw milk. And that's at about $17 a gallon. Probably because it's not legal here. They do say it's from grassfed dairy cows from organically ran farms, though.

Re: healthy milk

Quick raw milk soapbox...sorry.

People did not start getting sick from milk until factory farming became prevelant. Pasteurization was initiated NOT to protect public health but to protect emerging factory dairy farms that were shipping their product across the country. Homogenization and pasteurization became widespread as products were being shipped further and further.

FWIW we don't drink cow milk except very rarely. We raise a few dairy goats and that's all we drink.
