Absurd Doctor Says Feeding Babies Raw Milk is 'Child Endangerment'

Absurd Doctor Says Feeding Babies Raw Milk is 'Child Endangerment'

(NaturalNews) Incensed by the idea that Iowans might soon be able to make their own food choices when it comes to fresh dairy products, Daniel H. Gervich, M.D., a board-certified infectious diseases and critical care medicine doctor from Des Moines, Iowa, recently declared that feeding raw milk to babies is "child endangerment."

This outlandish claim, which was part of a recent rant he made against raw dairy published in the Des Moines Register, infers that mothers who feed their babies raw milk are abusing their children. And should anything negative happen to these children during the time in which they are drinking raw milk, their parents should apparently be held criminally responsible in Dr. Gervich's view.

Don't Tread On Me and my baby!

The most tame animals will become the wildest creature on earth, when having a baby and sensing a nearby threat. Are parents not always responsible for EVERYTHING to do with their baby?

LMAO So all Dr.'s practice the same way, right? Could we get a second opinion?

You are what you eat. Do you know where your food comes from and what it ate? Was it genetically made or naturally? Got Milk? When will someone find that answer? I question the intent and meaning of that slogan, at this stage of the game.

Got God? Creation gives all that they need, if man would get out of the way.

Milk

Imo adults should not even be drinking milk. A former friend of mine had a father who was a chef/server to a high ranking British naval officer and was told that the officer's nutritional requirements should not include milk or for any adults for that matter. I think the Bible also mentions this. Children fine but not for adults from what I gathered.

This being said I would much prefer people had the choice of drinking raw milk or 'dead' milk if they want to drink milk.

Personally, I am into the organic almond 'milk' thing. Until I hear or read anything different about these almonds I shall not go back to dairy milk.

I do eat greek yogurt and cheese the odd time.

p.s. What about raw goat milk on a side note?

Now the Almond milk is "dead"

...as Federal Regulation of Almond growers requires irradiation of ALL almonds grown and sold in the US. So now, even the "Raw" label on those is a complete, "government allowed" lie. (2008)

I suppose we should be hearing how Obama Santorum wants to attack France for humanitarian reasons, since they are looking at selling raw milk in vending machines.

For those looking...

i was raised on fresh cows milk

We had our own cow and drank milk every meal, as a senior citizen. I am thankful as my bones are that of a much younger person, still have my own teeth.

Raw milk for children??

It won't be long before mothers will be required to pasteurize their breast milk!!!
GO AWAY GOVT... GET OUT OF OUR LIVES!

Freedom is our ONLY choice.

They already are "required"...

and the service is free to all who fly or soon...take a train... ;-)

I don't agree

with this doctors reasoning but it is my understanding that cows milk is not good for infants anyway because they cannot digest it properly. Goats milk is suppose to be better.

Surely he isn't against mothers milk which is raw. LOL I don't understand why they are so against raw milk. It boggles my mind.

HR-1tittie7

Addresses the dangers of mothers milk and looks to ban it nationally.

Please help fight it!

Last time I checked, nursing mothers (human and bovine) give...

...RAW milk. Is this doctor going to start insisting that moms pasteurize their breasts? Ugh.
