People in the public health community are firmly against raw milk being allowed for sale,'' says Donald W. Schaffner, Ph.D., director of the Center for Advanced Food Technology at Rutgers University. "Milk was one of the first foods to be required to be pasteurized. This is because back when that was instituted in the early part of the 20th century people were getting sick because there were dangerous bacteria present in the milk. . . .Food poisoning associated with raw milk still occurs, he says. From 1998 to 2005, 45 outbreaks associated with raw milk or cheese resulted in more than 1,000 illnesses, 104 hospitalizations and two deaths, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
That's two deaths in seven years. Now, I'll leave you something from another article, "Death By Medicine" by Null (et al.) :
The total number [in 2001] of iatrogenic deaths [deaths caused by medical procedures] shown in the following table is 783,936. It is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251" and "Our estimated 10-year total of 7.8 million iatrogenic deaths is more than all the casualties from all the wars fought by the US throughout its entire history.
Perhaps we should be more cautious about the medical (or military) industrial complex than raw milk, yet I've never heard of any laws banning either institution.
