Though the author sometimes goes off on tangents or gets a little redundant at times, this is a must read book for anyone who wants to take charge of what they eat and be truly healthy. Since switching to raw milk six months ago, my husband and I have lost weight (due to more energy and exercise from the milk) and feel better than we ever have before. My asthma has improved as have some of my digestion issues. I cannot rave enough about how delicious it is too!
Even if you don't think you'd want to have your milk raw, there are also some really important political questions posed in this book. For example, does the government have the right to tell us what we can and can not eat/drink?
I hope you'll check it out!
One thing I learned was that heart attack rates in many countries went up at the same time that consumption of saturated fat actually went down. The is no reason to think that pasteurization of milk was the cause of this, but it did happen during the thirty years after pasteurization became common. I learned that substances in raw milk actually destroy pathogens. As a matter of fact one of the substances (lactoferrin) was recently approved as an antimicrobial spray to be used against e-coli in the meat industry. I learned that many more people have become ill from drinking pasteurized milk than from raw milk and that many illnesses attributed to raw milk in the press did not come from the milk at all. I also learned that several large MODERN (21st century) studies have shown that children raised on raw milk are far less likely to have allergies or asthma.
I was reminded by this book of something that was common knowledge before the days of antibiotics. The way to cure TB was to send the sufferer to a farm where he was to drink large quantities of fresh milk and sleep on a sleeping porch in the fresh air.
Even if you don't want to drink raw milk yourself, you may want to remember that we should, as American citizens, be entitled to drink it if we want to, and also that the best way to keep small farmers on their land is to let them sell their produce to their friends and neighbors.
This is the second book I have read on the subject, and, despite the fact I was raised to be horrified by even touching raw milk, I have become convinced it would be a good idea to seek it out.
I couldn't believe what I read. Could the modern milk of today be really, that bad???? sad to say, yes....
We've switched to raw dairy from grassfed california cows and I recommend this book to all people curious about real, whole food.
This is definitely the untold story of milk. I'd never heard this side of the truth... scary, but thankful I live in a state where raw milk sales are legal
