Do you drink raw milk? I have been for four years now and I don't intend to stop. Raw milk is just milk straight from the cow. Conventional milk is pasteurized, homogenized and comes from cows injected with hormones and antibiotics. Conventional dairy cows are also fed a grain based diet to up their milk production. Pasteurization warms the milk to a temperature that kills bacteria but which also kills good enzymes in the milk as well. Homogenization puts the milk in a centrifuge and spins it to permanently mix the fat globules in the rest of the milk. Hormones and antibiotics are said to pass through into the milk. Cows fed a grain based diet also contain a different biological makeup to their milk. So these things that conventional dairies do to milk alters it from its intended state. Some people consider raw milk to be unfit for human consumption and some folks consider it the best thing since before sliced bread. Here are a few links if you would like to read up and form an opinion.
