Default Anyone Drink Raw Milk?

Just curious because I'm thinking of switching to it.

No thanks. Before pasteurization, raw milk was a prime source for contracting tuberculosis.

My grandmother was the youngest child of 12. Ten of them died from TB. It's suspected they had a "bad cow".

I hear its popularity is on the rise, despite the risks.

I would if it was easier to get. If you can find a clean, pure source, it is MUCH healthier than pasteurized milk.

http://www.realmilk.com/why.html

"Recent figures published regarding the spread of tuberculosis by milk show, among other facts, that over a period of five years, during which time 70 children belonging to a special organization received a pint of raw milk daily, only one case of the disease occurred. During a similar period when pasteurized milk had been given, 14 cases were reported."

Here's a couple interesting (and somewhat shocking) articles:

My family owns a dairy farm. I grew up on raw milk. I had to stop drinking it when I developed Colitis. My friend Ang still drinks it.

Did you get the Colitis from drinking raw milk or you just can't drink milk because of the colitis?

My husband just started drinking it, SC... he gets raw milk and free range, farm fresh eggs from a dairy in Foxboro, MA, but there are a lot of local co-ops that pool money to get raw milk picked up and delivered if you don't live near a dairy. I don't drink milk so I won't be partaking, but he says it is good, but that it tastes like cream. A shock for people who might be used to drinking 2%.

Yeah, there's one that delivers right to Inman Square, which isn't that far from me. I only want a half gallon a week, but I don't know if that's too little an amount for them.

I haven't ever tried it, unless they served it in Italy when I lived there. I know the milk tasted waaaaay better there. Hummm???
The cheese over there wasn't pasteurized, had to stop eating it when I got pregnant. That sucked, because I couldn't eat my insalata d' caprese the last 2 months I was there.

It shouldn't be too small of an amount, that is usually the point of the co-op - so you can pool small orders with other people in the area and offset gas/transportation charges. This dairy charges just under $4 a 1/2 gallon, which is what organic 1/2 gallons run at the grocery store closest to me.

I can't drink it due to the Colitis. Its suspected to be a genetic disease.

I'm going to have to look into that too.

We drank german milk (which is not pasteurized) while we were there. Like this one: http://www.farmlanddairies.com/Parmalatmilk.htm

It is treated a different way (high heat) instead. No ill effects and it tastes so much better than US milk. My son was raised on it for over 4 yrs while there, doctors said it was fine.

I don't think I'd drink it raw though, unless I knew the source was ultra healthy.

I've had it, and if it weren't illegal in NJ for even farmers to sell it I would buy it regularly. Upstate NY and PA are both too far for me to drive to buy milk.

We have raw milk at home. We buy it from a farm here in Malawi.We boil the milk for a while, until it starts to raise. I think they treat it with heat at the farm as well, because they sell it by the gallon as well as package it and sell smaller amounts.
