Milk is getting a RAW deal in Sunset Park

Over at the Gothamist they are covering a story on what appears to be a new craze among some people. Drinking raw unpasteurized milk. It appears someone is peddling the stuff in Bay Ridge and Sunset Park. I personally think it's nuts. There is a reason we pasteurize stuff. Pasteurization was one of the biggest advances along with the discovery of germs that led to a significant increase on lifespan in our society. In any case, you can read the rest of the story here.

From the story;

The dairy devotee has plans for a "drop off" service in Bay Ridge and Sunset Park, with each gallon of raw milk costing $6-7. The club also offers grass-fed beef, "true-pastured eggs" and "the best bacon in the world."

Please read my blog post and see if you can't see why some of us prefer fresh, unprocessed milk!

A 28 year long sp resident, here, I'm very excited about this, having to go to the slope or city to pick up my raw milk. louis pasteur himself disavowed the unholy process of pasteurization acknowledging how wrong and unhealthy it is. saddened to see a local blogger parrotting the lies promoted by the corrupt and vile mega dairy industrial complex...

It's a controversial subject as I have seen. We will have to agree to disagree. If that's how you want to drink your milk, more power to you. I personally don't drink the stuff except when it's in my coffee. To each his own. I merely pointed out that the stuff appears to be available in the nabe. What you do with that information is up to you.
