Tennessee State Legislator Criticizes Department of Health for Going Overboard with Warnings Against Raw Milk

All across the United States, there is a constant battle between health officials who argue that unpasteurized milk is too dangerous for consumption and raw milk advocates who argue that it is no more risky than buying produce or raw meat which is left up to the consumer to prepare. Each side uses its own carefully selected words and distributes its own propaganda to try to convince others to see it their way.

On July 21, 2015 the Tennessee Department of Health released a news bulletin that said: “Consuming raw milk in the belief it’s healthier than pasteurized milk is a perilous risk that shakes off the possibility of a range of serious and occasionally fatal illnesses for the individuals and anyone they share it with. Our best choice for healthy, nutritious milk is the pasteurized kind. Even if one believes there are health benefits, an upside, is it worth gambling on the downside risk of a serious illness, especially in a child?”

Senator Frank Niceley of Strawberry Plains, who sponsored 2009 legislation allowing cow sharing and has pushed for legalization of marketing for raw milk from these cow shares, believes the TN Department of Health is going overboard in their continuous warnings.

“Blue Bell ice cream killed three people, and it’s made with pasteurized milk,” he said. “Why aren’t they up in arms warning about that?”

  1. So it’s no surprise to see the CDC promoting pasteurized milk — the very product whose digestive enzymes have been destroyed so that it causes allergic reactions in those who consume it.
    Pasteurized, homogenized milk also promotes heart disease, obesity, autoimmune disorders, constipation, sinus congestion and many other chronic health conditions.
    In contrast, raw milk from a reputable dairy operation such as Organic Pastures (www.OrganicPastures.com) is the cleanest milk on the planet, bar none. Sure, it has friendly bacteria in it, but that bacteria is good for you — it’s probiotics. The CDC, of course, is so clueless about infectious disease that they hate ALL bacteria and want to destroy them all with chemicals or heat.
    That’s the whole point of pasteurization, you see: To kill everything that might be alive in their ultra-dirty milk. The real purpose of pasteurization is not to simply “make milk safe” as is claimed by the CDC, but rather to allow the dairy industry to operate DIRTY. It’s so much easier to just cook the crap out of the milk (yes, there’s fecal matter in it) than to clean up their operations, get it?
