Comment at the You Tube site for Raw Milk -
”This is absurd... when you take the emotion out of these topics and actually look at the true science you’ll be far more well informed than these 2. You know why people like raw milk... because it’s about ~3.7 fat - fat is perceived as being sweet. That’s it... if you grow up on a farm, then fine, your body can adjust - but this notion of organics saving the world is just too much - there are so many loopholes around organic ... ex. organic pesticides are far less ... read more

"Dairying on the historic grounds of Britain's Windsor Castle"
By Ian Gumming (From the Ontario Farmer - Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2006 - Pages 22, 23)
”What hasn’t changed over the centuries is that these herds put raw milk on the Royal family’s and other consumers’ tables... The Queen drinks raw milk from her Jersey herd and when Princes William and Harry were being educated at nearby Eton, ’I would bottle up some milk from the Ayrshire herd every day and run it over to them’.”

"What people (actually) are is 'Pasteurization Intolerant'"
By Mark McAfee, Founder Organic Pastures Dairy Company:
There are two raw milks in America, one for “people” and one for the “pasteurizer”.
Raw milk for people is clean, pure comes from cows on green pastures and is regulated on a state by state basis.
Raw milk for the pasteurizer is regulated by the FDA under the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO) and can be filled with pathogenic bacteria. Raw milk intended for pasteurization is commingled from many CAFO dairies and is never tested for pathogens.

”Our governments have their place providing their actions are based on the practice of common sense. In truth, they are working against the tide of reality.
I have a suggestion for Messrs. Algie and Sandik as well as our Minister of Agriculture, our vacillating Ontario Premier and some of his ’yes-men’ -- read Ayn Rand’s book ’Atlas Shrugged’. May I caution them if they are not up to tackling 1,168 pages (for their much needed edification) then for the sake of all ratepayers in the province please read at least the 60 pages starting at page 1,109 for John Galt’s revealing speech.

Osteoporosis 11 y
Calcium requires phosphatase before it can be assimilated and nourish our bones. However, pasteurization destroys phosphatase and Vitamin D!
Further response to the possible notion that raw milk could cause osteoporosis in a comment left at You Tube:
”We have all been led to believe that (commercial) milk is a wonderful source of calcium, when in fact, pasteurization makes calcium and other minerals less available. Complete destruction of phosphatase is one method of testing to see if milk has been adequately pasteurized. Phosphatase is essential for the absorption of calcium. ”

(Image at article page) A 19th century illustration of ”swill milk” being produced: a sickly cow being milked while held up by ropes. (Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Weekly)
By the mid-1800’s in America, some raw milk production had shifted away from farms and into highly-populated cities. Big cities did not have pastures or clean water, and the cows in city dairies were kept in filthy conditions with poor nutrition and poor animal health. Many of these cows were fed byproducts from alcohol distilleries, lead ... read more
