Natural milk (from bovine) is acknowledged to be one of the most beneficial, nutritious food source there is, when taken from the cow under reasonable sanitary conditions and immediately cooled to prevent increased bacterial activity.
As in the consumption of any bovine product, approved herd health certification must be obtained. The open-ended declaration that “raw milk” is hazardous to ones health is a blatant fallacy.
The sale of natural (raw) milk is illegal. Why?
Today’s milk is being sold as “natural”. It is not.
Consider . . . today’s milk is taken from the cow by machine then pumped into a cooler holding tank through a pipeline then a truck hauls the milk every few days to the processing plant.
The milk is separated to remove butterfat then it is pasteurized to make sure all bacteria, good and bad, is destroyed. Any that hasn’t been destroyed by detergents, disinfectant etc. Before it got to the processing plant.
One can smell the disinfectants when approaching any dairy barn, milking equipment, truck hauler or persons using it. Finally, homogenization completes the processing!
I do not criticize those who are required to reduce bacteria from milk/milking equipment.
At this point milk cannot be considered “natural.”
Now they add vitamins and unspecified preserves to assure a safe product that has the shelf life of nuclear waste. Enjoy.
