Raw Milk Worth Risks: List of Possible Symptoms

By Alan Ng - Jul 20, 2010

We have an interesting article for you to read now, as it has been reported that Raw Milk, although banned in the U.S, could actually be used as part of a healthy diet – according to a few advocates.

As reported from NPR, raw milk is banned becuase the Food and Drug Administration believes that it poses a health threat risk. However, some people think that the risks are worth it – like 29-year old mother Liz Reitzig.

She doesn’t believe that the risks of consuming raw milk are bad enough for her family. Instead, she happily takes 2-year old son Duncan Reitzig to farms in Pennsylvania for it – paying around $5 to $7 a gallon.

However, the FDA hasn’t banned raw milk for no reason. According to NPR, raw milk is thought to contain various harmful bacteria like E. coli and salmonella – two bacteria which can make people very sick in some cases.

What are your thoughts on this? Anything that can be linked to kidney failure is a serious issue in my opinion – should we really be taking such a laid back approach on the dangers of drinking raw milk?
