The following text is from the promotional flyer for this event:
” 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….”
