Children who drink raw milk are less likely to develop asthma and allergies than those who stick to the safer pasteurized version, according to a large European study.
This is an interesting topic on quite a few levels. There is something going on in Ontario (ithink) regarding the illegal sale of raw milk. I drank raw milk as a kid....but was given Carnation in a bottle - breastfeeding just not encouraged....that's what people did back then. Anyhow, I find the stories and legalities of this here in Canada quite interesting as well. I guess a farmer can't feed the neighbours like they used to.

Some people try to get around it by cooperatively owning the cow. It is a problem for those with corn allergies as the vitamins that enrich our milk are carried on...corn based oil. :roll:

Pasturization is a good thing and with listeria in the news so much, I don't think the government is going to change their tune any time soon.

We purchased our milk straight from a farmer and I remember mom cooking it in a big pot on the stove. Funny how much I remember from my childhood...I hadn't started school yet!

Gwen Smith talks about this research and states that this study has found that there is something protective about raw unpasteurized milk.
Interesting comments here.

You are right! This happened in my community. The farmer lost the battle and was fined for selling raw milk. The case was just finished in court not too long ago (a few months I think). He claimed pasteurized milk was more harmful than unpasteurized but he is also one of those people who tend to fight anything the government does...
