More and more consumers are becoming aware of the health benefits of raw milk.
It’s loaded with active probiotics, of course, which we now know increase skin health and digestive health while potentially even improving cognitive function. So naturally, consumers started purchasing raw milk from their local farmers and coops in order to benefit from this raw, unprocessed food. (Actually, lots of health-conscious people have been doing this since the 1960’s, but “raw milk” didn’t really become popular among near-mainstream consumers until just the last few years…)
When people buy raw milk from local farmers, this of course takes away profits from the large corporate milk producers that are selling pasteurized, homogenized milk. So the dairy industry attempted to get the federal government (USA) to destroy the competition (the raw milk producers). … they made up an excuse, “Raw milk is dangerous!”
Yep: The same beverage that America was raised on is now considered by the feds to be “too dangerous to drink.” Sure, you can drink diet soda laced with aspartame or high-fructose corn syrup — two ingredients known to cause degenerative disease — but you can’t drink raw, wholesome, fresh milk anyway because it’s “too dangerous” !!!
We really need to question more and more, information that we are force fed and realise not everything (by a long shot!) is with our best interests at heart. Follow the money trail and you can’t go wrong!
