Raw Unpasteurized Milk – What are the Key Nutritional Benefits ?

Major Shift About Whole Milk — Now a Health Food?

Raw milk has been vilified as a dangerous product and should be avoided until it’s processed. But in reality, raw milk contains beneficial nutrients that may help support optimal health, when obtained from the right sources – grass-fed cows organically raised in humane conditions.

Pasteurization also destroys lactase, the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of lactose. Many people with lactose intolerance have no problem drinking raw milk, because it has lactase in it

Take a look and make up your own mind.

Raw Milk Is Your Best Option
When it comes to dairy products, whether we’re talking about milk, yogurt, cheese or butter, the most ideal choices are products made from raw, unpasteurized milk, as the pasteurisation process destroys many valuable nutrients. Even organic grass-fed dairy is not identical to raw dairy.
Unfortunately, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to this day claims that “All raw milk is risky,”
simply because it hasn’t been pasteurized.

According to the CDC:

“The use of good hygiene practices on the farm can reduce but cannot eliminate the chance of milk getting contaminated. Healthy animals can carry germs that make people sick. Also, testing isn’t a guarantee that raw milk is free from harmful germs. Even if testing one batch of a farm’s raw milk does not find harmful germs, the next batch can contain them.
Plus, tests do not always detect low levels of contamination. Germs that go undetected in raw milk can multiply between the time the milk is tested and people drinking it.”

While it’s true that raw milk CAN be contaminated, the reality is that it rarely ever is. As explained in the video above, raw milk contains components that protect against disease-causing pathogens.

“Fact: You are 35,000 times more likely to get sick from other foods — including pasteurized dairy — than you are from raw dairy.”

Research by Dr Ted Beals shows you are actually 35,000 times more likely to get sick from other foods than you are from raw dairy. This includes pasteurized dairy, which has been linked to 73 deaths, whereas raw milk has not been linked to a single death so far.
The key to healthy raw milk is making sure it’s from organically raised grass-fed cows. Never ever drink raw milk obtained from concentrated animal feeding operations(CAFOs).
Doing so could indeed be life-threatening, as CAFOs are hotbeds for pathogens of all kinds. In fact, the propensity for pathogens to thrive in CAFOs is one of the reasons the milk must be pasteurized in the first place. It’s simply not safe to drink otherwise. Of course, pasteurization also extends shelf life, which is a convenience, but it comes at a cost to health.
