More people ignoring government propaganda, choosing raw milk over pasteurized

(NaturalNews) There is a raw milk renaissance sweeping America that is marked by swelling disregard for all the government fear-mongering over this all-natural, living “superfood.” Writing for The Washington Post (WP), freelance journalist Whitney Pipkin highlights just a few of the many families throughout the Northeast and elsewhere that are embracing raw milk with open arms, despite oppressive restrictions on its sale and endless warnings by health authorities about its alleged dangers.

Raw milk is considerably hard to come by in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, for instance, as the District, Virginia and Maryland all currently prohibit the retail sale of raw milk. For families like the Jacksons, who recently moved out to the country to raise their own milk-producing animals and avoid the hassle, this used to mean having to cross state lines to access the whole food for their family of 13.

“Once we started to have the milk, that was it,” stated Kendra Jackson to WP about the initial spark that led to her family eventually purchasing three cows that they now raise on their own land. “I really love the cows, and all of the kids love milk, so we found a place that was the best deal financially.”

But most people probably lack the freedom and resources to just up and move to a farm in order to raise their own cattle for real milk. And the ones who wish to access it from someone else’s cows or goats should be allowed to do so anyway, agrees the Gore family of Washington, D.C., who told WP that raw milk was the next step in their progression away from processed foods.

“I don’t run around in hipster, crunchy-granola crowds,” joked Hilda Gore, as quoted by WP. Her family has progressively embraced a diet composed of local meat, local eggs, no genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and now unpasteurized milk.

    Remember back in the 90s when the guberment announced out of the blue that it would be advisable to start peeling our carrots? When guberments do that you can bet your boots that whatever the reason is its not out of the goodness of their hearts! Been buying organic carrots or growing my own ever since!
    They never did give the word to rescind that instruction.

    The State should not interfere if people want to drink raw milk. But is pasteurised worse? Where’s the evidence? My Missis used to drink raw milk and was diagnosed with latent TB, which was – rightly or wrongly – suspected as being from the milk. But as I say, it should be up to individual choice and shouldn’t be a problem from healthy cows. I’ll stick with pasteurised myself since I only put it in tea or coffee anyway. But I eat eggs from my own hens and wouldn’t like to be told I couldn’t, so I fully support the right to drink raw milk.

    A local farm shop sells raw unpasteurised milk. It behaves like milk used to. The cream rises to the top, it makes a skin on the top of a cup of coffee and it tastes delicious. As I understand it, the factory process that milk is subjected to involves forcing it through tiny jets that break up the long chain fat molecules into little bits, thus homogenising it. These long chain fat molecules are good for the gut, hence they must be destroyed.
