  •  With proper fluids, IV drip, they won't die (4+ / 0-)

    Like the more famous cholera, patients can survive it with a prompt infusion of fluids, including electrolytes, though it is still agonizing.  But the point is that they shouldn't have to get it in the first place and won't if they drink properly pasteurized milk.

    I'm increasingly of the belief that children are cheap and easily replaceable...when you consider the risks people take with them. I see them being held on high railings -- sure Mom/Dad's right there -- I see them being pushed in strollers across busy streets, not in the crosswalk, I see them swimming in pools while Mom or Dad is enjoying a long talk with the neighbors, back to the pool.  I won't even start on the anti-vax loons.

    A weapon that is also a treasure is certain to be used.

      Being poor and having an awareness of history, I always gave my kids pasteurized milk.

      At least until it turned out they were lactose intolerant. So now they eat cheese, which does not seem to bring on the symptoms.

      When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
