Raw Milk

The California dairy industry, the country’s largest, is in a tizzy about Coca Cola's new ultra-processed milk product, known as Fairlife.

Food safety regulators in New Zealand stuck their collective fingers in the air and concluded that maybe there is something to this raw milk thing.

It’s not often that a judge steps in to protect a farmer claiming a violation of his constitutional rights from aggressive state regulators, but that’s exactly what has happened in the northeast corner of Minnesota. 

Surely there must be a gut-friendly food that can help reduce the risk of asthma and allergies.

I was talking with a veteran raw milk producer a few days ago, who was telling me that his dairy’s raw milk sales seemed to have leveled off for the first time in years. Now, it was meat sales that were climbing rapidly. 

The recent deaths and illnesses from pasteurized-milk ice cream emphasize, yet again, how much less we know about food safety than the people in charge would care to admit. 

When I saw the news heading— “Dozens now sick with E. coli after Milk Makers Fest”—I thought, uh-oh, milk, E.coli, and kids dropping like flies.
