I Drank Raw Milk!

Can raw milk be ok? There is quite a grass roots movement going on throughout the country focusing on the value of offering people the choice to obtain raw dairy products. The raw milk people claim that raw milk from healthy cows (jersey, gurnsey) is superior in many ways to our clean but “sterilized” pasteurized product. Websites like this one ( http://www.raw-milk-facts.com/raw_milk_health_benefits.html) talk about the benefits of proteins like lactoferrin, discuss enzymes that aid digestion, and good-yes beneficial bacteria that help our immune systems-all found in raw milk and all destroyed in the pasteurization process! My son got interested in this and connected up to a farm via the West0n price people (http://www.westonaprice.org/). He really enjoyed his experience and felt great eating raw cheeses and dairy products and drinking the milk. Well, I thought I’d try it out so I traveled down to Florida and was granted the privilege of milking a cow called “peanut” and drank the milk. 🙂
