Is raw milk dangerous?



  1. 0 Votes

    Raw milk can have many health benefits, mainly supporting a healthy immune system.  It is also good for people who are lactose intolerant because the bacteria in raw milk can lower its lactose content.

    Usually, the “bad” bacteria in raw milk are overcome by the “good” bacteria.  But the “bad” bacteria can be quite harmful.  There may be listeria, salmonella, E. coli, and other bacteria present in raw milk.

    So, though pasteurized milk does get rid of some of the good bacteria, it gets rid of the bad bacteria, too, making it overall safer to drink.

    Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized. The main dangers of raw milk is that it can carry bacteria that the pasteurization process would have killed, including e coli, salmonella, and listeria — three of the most dangerous food-borne illnesses. According to the FDA, more than 800 Americans have gotten sick from drinking raw milk since 1991. The FDA warns most strongly against raw milk consumption for pregnant women, the elderly, and those with weak immune systems. 

    Despite these reported risks, many support raw milk and choose to drink it despite the FDA’s warnings, citing that it is fresher, has real fat, and comes from pasture-grazing cows — as they say, the way real milk should be.
