An Abridged History of Mass Milk Production

Raw milk advocates know that stainless steel tanks and refrigerated trucks have reduced the need for pasteurization that originally came about due to dirty production methods and infected water supplies in the 1920s. However, many still argue that pasteurization is necessary to protect public health, even though pasteurized milk is less nutritious and harder to digest.

How did consumers feel about pasteurized milk when it first became available? Who were the influential politicians who argued for pasteurization? How did pasteurization give rise to the dairy giants that still exist today?

These questions and others are examined in a “Murky History of Mass Milk Production Pours Over to Today: Raw Milk Revolution?” on the Epoch Times.
