Raw Milk Sparks Controversy

Sheldon Richman

“A national battle is heating up between proponents of drinking raw milk for health benefits and food safety advocates such as the Food and Drug Administration. Drinkers of raw, or unpasteurized, milk say it tastes better, helps with digestive problems and boosts immunity. The FDA warns the milk is ‘inherently dangerous.’ It can be a host for potentially harmful germs, FDA spokesman Michael Herndon says.” (USA Today, Friday)
