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."
