Raw milk farmer, points out the obvious-
At trial, Schmidt argued the charges that were laid against him were unconstitutional and infringed on his personal rights and freedoms.
He also said government officials and food scientists cannot guarantee the safety of any food, and argued informed consumers should be able to buy raw milk, just as they can buy raw meat.
According to the Ministry of Health, there were 145 cases of reportable enteric illness associated with unpasteurized milk in Ontario between 2005 and 2009.
How many people have been poisoned from 'properly processed' foods?
Oh and one more thing, the raw milk supporters suggest that pasteurization enables the milk industry to raise cows in less-expensive, less-healthy conditions.
I can't disagree with that.
Bottom line, if these people want to drink this milk and they are confident and comfortable with doing so, that is their right.
