  •  Listeria is no joke (6+ / 0-)

    One of my former bosses grew up on a farm in Wisconsin.  He used to drink raw milk straight from the teat -- that is, until he came down with a mild case of listeria.  He was lucky, he was only bedridden for a week.

    People who consume raw milk must make sure that the cows it comes from are extremely clean.  The proximity of udder to rectal and urinary openings makes this of paramount importance.

      the cleanliness has to go waaaay beyond that.

      I would drink raw milk that I have personally supervised.  But even that is a knowing risk.

      I would never, ever, ever drink raw milk from another farm, no matter what they say.

        problem with religion, no matter how well intentioned. Lots of faith involved.
