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.
No MAS.

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.

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%.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

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.

Wow! So lucky. I live in the Bay Area and raw milk costs about $8 a half gallon here!!!!!

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.
Eres o te haces?
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.
