I would just want to pose one question: it seems to me that this battle over raw milk is particularly American - if that's the case, what is the take on raw milk in other cultures? Is it even a question in places like France, Spain or Italy? Does it say something about us culturally as Americans?
I lived in France for a year, and when I first got there, I was shocked by the milk that I bought at my local supermarket. Yes, because it tasted of something, unlike American milk. Was it raw or unpasteurized? I have no idea. I'd love to know. When I came back to the US, I was then shocked at how supermarket milk had no taste. I'm not a big milk-drinker anyway, luckily, using it simply in my tea or coffee, but I do love cheese, especially raw milk cheese.
