One thing this article is missing is the taxpayer cost of the FDA sting on Dan Allgyer, an Amish farmer who sold unpasteurized milk to customers specifically wanting that product.
The FDA is convinced that raw milk has no benefits, that can’t be obtained from the pasteurized products but customers believe otherwise.
It’s obvious that drinking unpasteurized milk with its collection of native flora is a different deal than drinking the commercial product the bacteria of which have been killed. People also eat yogurt to obtain benefits from the microbial growth within.
Some people don’t mind playing a bit of roulette with their pro-biotics, and the FDA, which obviously doesn’t know ‘bugs’, needs to find something more useful to do.
