As if pasteurization wasn’t bad enough

From the “Everything has a Reason” blog, here’s an excerpt from a story titled “Homogenizing raw milk kills everything in it”. The picture also from that story. Mostly on this blog, our main concern has been around pasteurization. But there’s little doubt in my mind that the associated practice of homogenization, is also problematic in its long-term effects on health. I’m not sure this author has all the facts straightened out to 100% correctness, but it does at least serve as a good reminder that pasteurization is not the only problem with processed “milk”.

“Homogenization is a process to prevent or delay natural separation of cream from the rest of the emulsion. The fat in milk normally separates from the water and collects at the top. Homogenization breaks the fat into smaller sizes so it no longer separates, allowing the sale of non-separating 1%, 2%, and whole milk. This is accomplished by forcing the milk at high pressure through small orifices.

Another method of homogenization uses extruders, hammermills, or colloid mills to mill (grind) solids.

So, pasteurizing our raw milk is not enough. Commercialize farmers needs to homogenized it too to kill what ever is left that are good and bad for the human body. Not only that, they will also add non natural ingredients to it.

Solution: stop the commercialization of milk.There a lot of farmer in this world to supply milk to about everyone. Supporting your local farmers is the place to start. If a farmer have enough land for the cows to grace, there is no way that raw milk will get contaminated with e-coli and such. But if they have limited space, that’s where the problem begins. Natural food are good for everyone. Once you alter mother natures given gift, they are not good anymore.

No wonder that there are so much people in this country that are diabetic and have heart diseases. The fat content in raw milk are good for you. Destroying the fat in to smaller pieces is not good. And removing the cream in raw milk is not the best either….”
