Raw milk is it! I had raw cream for the first time a couple years ago. Had to buy it illegally since its illegal here in Virginia (its also illegal to ship across state lines-thanks Ronald Reagan!). its quite amazing and provides a warm tingle in the belly. People I know that react to dairy in bad ways tolerated the raw stuff. So I tend to agree with Schmid that pasteurization may be the real culprit when it comes to dairy allergies. Raw milk contains enzymes and beneficial bacteria that aid in its own digestion. Raw cream sours naturally into something akin to sour cream; it doesnt putrefy like the pasteurized stuff. Raw milk contains as much vitamin C as orange juice. Unfortunately, its mostly destroyed by pasteurization. I imagine its probably completely gone after ultra-pasteurization.
You can get sick from any food thats contaminated, including pasteurized milk. if raw milk is produced in sanitary conditions it is quite safe and resistant to infection (unlike pasteurized milk). People have died from eating lettuce contaminated with bacteria, but I dont see anyone demanding pasteurization of all lettuce (thank God). Why is milk singled out for compulsory destruction? People deserve to make their own health choices and health freedom. Small farmers ought to be able to sell unprocessed, unpasteurized foods to consumers. Compulsory pasteurization laws ought to be repealed.
Full-fat dairy products dont cause heart disease, contrary to the review above.Read more ›
I recommend this book to all dairy farmers and to anyone concerned about their families health. I especially recommend this to all public officials. These ideas will save the family farm and dramatically reduce the cost of health care in this country.
I gave this book a 4 rating because Dr. Ron needs to clarify a number chapters. I would like to see more in the enzyme chapter on the basics of enzymes, a clear explanation of closed modern milking systems showing why they keep milk clean, his recommendations for winter feed for dairy cows when grass is not available, and his suggestions for the most important areas of research to update the work of Price, Pottenger and the others.
Supposedly educated people will tell you these things and be dead serious. Unfortunately, they are dead WRONG on every single point above, and the health of tens of millions suffer greatly for their ignorance or intentional deceit.
Ron Schmid is one of the most important proponents of traditional diets. His first book, Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine, is the best introduction to the nutritional research of Weston Price currently available. With this new book, he once again proves his voice is a beacon of intelligence and clarity in a sea of disinformation and corruption.
This book is a scholarly, well researched and documented look into the trials and tribulations of milk use in society. While its primary focus is on the raw milk issue and the scientific and political shenanigans surrounding the milk business, it also delves into the related issues of the history of milk use and traditional diets.
There is a great deal of information in this book. Schmid traces the history of milk use from the distant past to current times. He cites considerable research and published works regarding the healing power and nutritional value of milk from healthy animals. He examines in detail the use of the raw milk cure, milk in traditional diets, and the political/economic battles around milk production in this country during the last century.Read more ›
