"Children who drink raw milk are less likely to develop asthma and allergies than those who stick to the safer pasteurized version, according to a large European study.

Although the study isn't ironclad proof that the effects can be chalked up to raw milk itself, researchers believe certain milk proteins that are destroyed by heat could be helpful to children's developing immune systems."

This is not in the least surprising, but sheesh, proteins don't have anything to do with it. It's the bacteria! I guess now we call bacteria that don't kill you "probiotics".

Pasteur was a great scientist and a brilliant man, but he was trying to defeat disease in a pre-antibiotic, rapidly urbanizing world. He acknowledged that his good friend
Bernard was right when he said it is the body's millieu that keeps us well.

Sterile goods for lack of communicable disease. Bacteria filled goods for optimum health.

"While it is possible to get foodborne illnesses from many different foods, raw milk is one of the riskiest of all."
This is the statement I have the most trouble with.....statistically it is ridiculous.
