Re: “Drink it raw

My husband and I are regular consumers of raw milk (obtained legally through a cow share in Virginia). The right to select the food that we choose to eat to protect our physical health is a Fundamental part of our civic and social well-being. What ever happened to the spirit of American democracy? I have no doubt that Thomas Jefferson would be appalled to discover people are barred from drinking milk from their own cows. Anyone who believes this issue is primarily about health, and not about running small dairy farmers out of business (or at least into the arms of the large dairy processors), is profoundly ill-informed. As for the epidemiologist who worries about raw milk causing disease, I'd suggest that he spend more energy studying the epidemiological evidence surrounding the damage done by all the processed foods (and additives) that are legal. That evidence is a lot stronger and should be a lot more of a concern to all of us in the field of public health. My deepest gratitude to Sen. Hagen, Ms. Foster, and all the farmers who are performing a great service to the individual health of families who have the good fortune to be able to drink raw milk from healthy grass-fed cows.
