woohoo! raw milk.

I am so excited! New neighbors just dropped by. They have a cow and I am going to start getting raw milk from them. Is that great or what. Where I live you can buy raw goats milk but not raw cow's milk. For raw goat's milk I would have to drive almost 40 miles 1 way. I am so thrilled!

experiment

I did an experiment. I left out a glass of raw milk and a separate glass of pasteurized milk for 3 days.

After 3 days, the raw milk smelled like yogurt, the pasteurized milk smelled putrid and foul.

Miss my water buffalo's milk fix in my younger years, all CREAMY

and RAW!!! Just the way I like it...My dad buys 'em by the roadside on the way to Gramps in the countryside. Those were the days...back in the old country.

great you believe in freedom,

great you believe in freedom, but it is mind boggling people still drink MILK at an adult age, and worse, from a cow. Would you lick the great of a cow to get the milk? But it's okay if in a bottle? Why not dog milk? No other specie does this, and we wonder we get sick with diseases no other animals in the wild get...

Yeah vote me down, but it makes no sense... and at leads have the gall to correct me...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Hey I voted you up

Raw milk still has blood and pus in it.
Milk is gross. It causes mucus. It's made of mucus.

Most of the people who talk up raw milk are actually dairy ranchers making money off of animals they artifically inseminate to keep unnaturally pregnant so that they can hook the cows up to milking machines that cause a painful udder infection called mastitis. Yep, you bet that pus drips down into that glass of milk.

I'm sure that no one gives a rat's ass that the mother cow cries for 3 days after they take her baby away to be chained by the neck and sold at auction and turned into veal. Because that milk so damn good...

I used to be lactose intolerant until I started drinking raw

milk from healthy grass-fed cows. It has now been almost 8 years & my sinuses have completely cleared & I am no longer intolerant to lactose...in fact my family consumes about 4 gallons of raw milk per week & we are healthy & fit! I read a book about the healing qualities of raw animals milk, especially cow & goat. It is one of the only complete foods in existence. You can live off of raw milk from grass-fed animals-it is a whole food. The fat in the milk is anti-microbial which rids any harmful bacteria. The healthy bacteria in the raw milk is amazingly healthy for the human gut & digestive system. Part of the reason (there are many) that so many people are sick today is not from drinking raw, pasture raised milk products, it is because they do not have the beneficial bacteria in their gut to properly digest food & assimilate vitamins & minerals. The pasteurized processed (dead) milk from sick animals who do not eat what they should, and always have eaten-healthy pasture grasses, is what is making many people sick. Look at all the cultures who drink raw animals milk & then look at the rate of the diseases (that you described) in those countries. Look at Dr. Weston A Price's findings as he studied the healthiest cultures on earth (namely tribes) & what they ate. A staple for thousands of years was & is healthy raw animals milk...and yes apples, lettuces. greens, healthy pastured animal products, eggs of all kinds, etc. But raw milk is one food that you could live on because of its complete nutrition. Do this test: put a cup of raw milk in a mason jar & a cup of pasteurized milk both with lids, out on the counter or in your cupboard...observe what happens to both:
The Pasteurized Milk: Will Go Rancid!
The Raw Milk: Will separate into curds & whey! Which can be eaten, drunk & used to make all sorts of products such as fermented vegetables, sauerkraut, pickle brine, cheeses, etc.

RAW MILK FROM PASTURE RAISED HEALTHY COWS DOES NOT GO BAD...IT GOES GOOD!! AND IT IS SAFE...safe enough to keep millions of people healthy for thousands of years.

Don't point out the FACTS.

Don't point out the FACTS. Very few people like that.

Let's not discuss that illogical behavior of drinking COW, yes COW milk, but if you offer them rat milk they look at you like you be crazy, man...

I always find it funny to be among people who seem to be somewhat critical thinking, but when it comes to certain things like FOOD and religion they will bite you as quick as you question anything they do.. Just amazing how predictable human behavior can be...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

"Let's not discuss that

"Let's not discuss that illogical behavior of eating COW, yes COW Meat, but if you offer them rat Meat they look at you like you be crazy, man..."

That's about what that argument adds up to. I'm sorry, I'd be more 'complex' but I've already exhausted my explanations for this elsewhere on this same topic. Go look at them if you wish.

For hundreds of years people all over the

globe have been nourished with the milk of ruminants. Joel Salatin gives a nice explanation of their conversion of plants that humans could not survive on into meat and milk. I think it's the Bantu traditional diet that primarily eat/drink blood and milk, and many traditional diets culture milk for best digestibility or drink it raw.

I think you are narrowly culture-bound and hung up on an abstract notion rather than the evidence of evolution and overwhelming evidence of history since animals were domesticated.

The land of Milk and Honey

...they've taken away the pure milk, and they're killing off the bees.

I am hung up on the amount of people that from heart disease, cancer etc... I assure you it isn't from eating apples...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Hmmmm.

Well it might be all the additives in our diet. Maybe a little fluoride or maybe vaccines. It sure wouldn't be from those! I am pretty sure cancer was almost unheard of a few decades ago, the same with autism.... but God forbid that people want something natural.

" cancer was almost unheard

" cancer was almost unheard of a few decades ago," Are you kidding or what? You keep believing the dairy and meat industry. I'll take my mouth elsewhere..

I have some Rhino milk for you too... tasty...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

What is in your diet, Brian?

High fructose corn syrup, or pink slime? Trust me raw milk is eons from the garbage in the grocery store.
But I am betting you are going to say you eat nothing but organic. I bet you raise it all yourself! Way to go!
This was a happy post and you had to come in and be debbie downer. Bless you!

I'm sure these people are vegetarian

If an upset cow keeps them from drinking milk...
you know they wouldn't eat any meat because the animals must be killed (much worse than being upset)
...and surely they'd never eat some white oval ball that fell out of a chicken's butt....and cheese is made of milk...of course mushrooms is a fungus (yechhhh)...and fish...a living breathing creature netted out of it's water habitat and left to suffer until it's gutted with a knife (painful , smelly & cruel)....and let's not start on the evils of diet soft drinks and ice cream (made from nasty milk)...yep I'm sure they only eat vegetables and such...and drink water.
Yep...obviously you're evil so instead of talking with you any more I'm going to mix up some chocolate milk! Goodnite!

I only drink rat milk and eat

I only drink rat milk and eat roasted roaches. That is my diet... Love it... Sometimes I each dog tail and cat eyes... yummy.... Isn't that just bringing your spirit up?

Oh yeah, I only add high fructose corn syrup when I eat Octopus ass....

I just thought it was odd to drink cow milk, and no one questions it, but they are the same people that are quick to question cops, Government etc.. but don't mess with what they have been brainwashed to eat...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

juxtapose raw cows milk with soy, rice, almond, oat milk

...and the processes that those items must go through to become "milk". Raw cow, goat & sheep milk has been used for centuries in yogurts, creams, butters(raw butter is one of the healthiest forms, especially cultured butter), butter milk, kifir, cheese (cheese was very popular because you could travel with it before mass transportation. You dont need a factory to get raw animals milk...just healthy pasture & the animals. To avoid the wisdom of antiquity & believe the propaganda of the day (literally it changes daily) is not healthy. Michael Pollan, author of the 'Omnivores Dilemma' correctly states that Americans are so confused as to what to eat. The propaganda of the day about what foods are healthy & what foods are not is purposefully confusing. But go to older cultures who are not consumed with television & fad diets. Those cultures dont question what to eat, they know what to eat...what grandma & great grandma ate, and her mother before her. Its simple...history is full of food wisdom. Cancer is a new phenomenon. Heart disease does not come from eating whole foods such as whole fat raw milk from grass-fed animals. Doctors & medicine men used to use raw milk as a medicine for their patients...a very effective medicine for all types of ailments including bowl problems, respiratory dysfunction & over all health.

why do you think cow milk is weird?

we ingest food from animal and plant sources. the people who tell me we aren't supposed to have any milk except human...well, do you think we should be cannibals? of course not. animals and plants are our sources of food. we are all a part of the web of life.

Cannibals. Im not sure where

Cannibals. Im not sure where that came from. Are babies cannibals who drink their mother's milk? Why is it that you think we should continue to drink milk AFTER we ween off? No other specie does it. Let's exclude extreme cases like survival, where you would drink urine too.

Plant and animal sources are two different things. Don't mix them together.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

There are many other things

There are many other things that are higher up on the list of 'poisonous' foods and forms of sustenance. Like the 12+ servings of High Fructose Corn Syrup infused wheats the FDA says we should be eating daily. Or the genetically modified fruits and veggies(not for 'human benefit' but so that they can take more pesticide) they hoist upon us. Let alone the actually corrupt Milk they do sell us. All Milk was 'raw' years ago, and it didn't destroy civilization then.

I am more sure citing another

I am more sure citing another bad thing justifies drinking from a COW, mind you. A cow. Do you believe in God? Do you think if nature or God wanted us to drink milk, we would be getting cozy with our moms at night sucking that left one dry... or is that disgusting, but not if it is a cow? Juz saying'.

All your arguments support mine that we shouldn't be drinking milk from the get go unless you have no teeth and are a baby.

I don't get this, well I do, because it's brainwashing at the highest level from when we were kids by the DAIRY and MEAT industry. How about water? Anyone tried that? Juz saying' ;)

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

That's my whole fucking

That's my whole fucking point. Dairy has been a major part of diets for CENTURIES before the "Dairy Industry" Lobbies you're thinking of. You're mixing up natural, ancient sources for goods and 'lobbied' poisons of today. And what's your reasoning for "Babies/children only"? Why is there a 'switch' that turns off when you get older(beyond growing necessities, which if you mean Calcium, there are many alternatives to it EVEN during growth). You need to take a breather and take into account some things...First off, have you ever had Raw Milk in the first place? You sound like you got sick after drinking one cup a long time ago and have a 'bad first impression', rather than any actual basis for dispute.

"First off, have you ever had

"First off, have you ever had Raw Milk in the first place?"

No, im not attracted to going to suck off a cow's breast. Same way I don't suck off my dog's tit either. It just sin't natural to me. Go for it, but why stop at cow milk? WHy now horse milk? Dog milk? Hippo Milk? Rat milk? Why? Because it makes no freakin' sense... You are doing it because you grew up on it..

Luckily I couldn't give less

Luckily I couldn't give less of a damn about what you think God wants me to drink or eat. In fact, right now I'm gonna clean and jerk 350 lbs, slaughter eight cows and a hundred chickens, cook it all up, eat some then throw the rest out. Then I'll relax with a nice, cold, refreshing half gallon of milk.
