” We are very pleased to have Michael Schmidt as our keynote speaker for the 2009 Holistic Nutrition Conference. Raw milk is a subject that most people don’t know enough about. If they did, there would be no controversy. Mr. Schmidt, who is a champion of our democratic right to drink raw milk and the science community’s enfant terrible will be our Friday night dinner speaker, giving us the true scientific and nutritional picture.

This brave man faces 20 charges related to the sale of unpasteurized milk products in the Ontario courts. With humour and grace, Michael Schmidt will articulate the same issues in the raw milk debate that we find in many other areas of the natural health industry. This is not just a story about personal freedom; this is about how disconnected we have become from our food, its production and what should be called “healthy”.

Join us on May 22 for an evening of organic food and wines and a chance to listen to Michael Schmidt’s remarkable journey….”

  1. It’s a travesty what this courageous man is being put through. God bless him! It is heartening to see that his challenges have by no means silenced him.

    I began drinking raw milk at the age of 16 and have never looked back. Indeed at that age I went through a healing experience that changed my life. Raw is not only generally healthy, it has curative powers, for which I was an example. For those who may be interested in learning more about the curative powers of raw milk I would like to draw your readers attention to a new post called The Raw Milk Cure which I have just put up at http://www.campaignforrealhealth.com/

    We are fortunate here in California that raw milk is legal and that we have a wonderful source — Organic Pastures Dairy and its heroic owner, Mark McAfee. We — everyone of us — need to support people like Mark and Michael not only to defend, but to expand the availability of raw milk. The more we can spread the word of its remarkable health properties the more difficult it will become for the powers that be to take it away from us.

    God bless you and this blog. You do wonderful work.
