Milk is truly one of the oldest, simplest whole foods – and we certainly drink a lot of it. According to the USDA, Americans consumed an average of 1.8 cups of dairy per person, per day in 2005.

But is the milk Americans are drinking today the same milk our ancestors drank thousands of years ago? Is it even the same milk our great-grandparents were drinking a hundred years ago? By and large, the answer is no.

Like many other modern foods, most of the milk sold today has been altered, stripped, and reconstituted. Once minimally processed, milk now undergoes a complicated and energy-intensive process before it ends up bottled and shipped to grocery store shelves. There are so many additives and processes involved that buying a gallon of milk or a cup of yogurt at your grocery store essentially guarantees that you’ll get a mixture of substances from all over the country — and possibly the world. But that’s not where it ends; milk by-products also now appear in a wide variety of other processed foods...Grist

Just how tough it is to drink safe milk of your own choice ?

[quote]WI Judge: No “Fundamental Right” to Own a Cow, or Consume Its Milk…Am I Making Myself Clear?

The Complete Patient Blog

Those raw milk proponents advocating "teach, teach, teach" may want to enroll Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler in their first class--in the kindergarten section.

In response to a request from the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the judge issued a clarification of his decision last week regarding his assessment of the constitutionality of food rights. The judge expanded on his original statement that such constitutional issues are "wholly without merit."

He explained that the FTCLDF arguments were "extremely underdeveloped." As an example, he said the plaintiffs' use of the Roe v Wade abortion rights case as a precedent does "not explain why a woman's right to have an abortion translates to a right to consume unpasteurized milk...This court is unwilling to declare that there is a fundamental right to consume the food of one's choice without first being presented with significantly more developed arguments on both sides of the issue." Gee, I thought they both had to do with the right to decide what to do with your own body

As if to show how pissed he was at being questioned, he said his decision translates further that "no, Plaintiffs to not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;wtf2.gif...The Complete Patient[/quote

I mean, I WISH I had access to raw milk.

hi5.gif Good post AK!

The regulations are to make people dependent on the system, if you want milk you must buy it fromt the market where it's pasteurized, homogenized, fat removed and vitamin D added because the processing destroys the naturally occurring vitamin D and wtf2.gif A cow could lead to independence.
Only big corporate farms feeding MonSatano frankengrain and pumping them so full of steroids the milk contains puss.
Don't forget to use a flouride toothpaste, makes corporate dairy milk taste great. gaah.gif

Things have gotten bad enough here in dairy land that many of the dairy farmers have gotten out of the business and are just raising beef now.

Coincidentally, the cost of milk has more than doubled since we moved her two years ago.

A gallon of milk is more than a gallon of gas here.

We are paying $3-5 a gallon here depending on where you go. It was about $1.50 when we moved here.

We have access to raw milk and get it whenever we can get our hands on it.
We've had Colostrum (also known colloquially as beestings, bisnings or first milk) its a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals in late pregnancy.
Most species will generate colostrum just prior to giving birth. Colostrum contains antibodies to protect the newborn against disease, as well as being lower in fat and higher in protein than ordinary milk.
No one has turned us in yet.
The Finns have a recipe for it called kalvdans or literally calf dance. It was pretty good actually, quite rich and pudding like.
It was better than lye fish. chuckle.gif
