At one time, everyone drank raw milk. But with the invention of pasteurization and its alleged safety benefits, consumption of raw milk in this country almost completely disappeared. In fact, in some states it is illegal to sell raw milk. But a growing segment of the population is clamoring for increased access to raw milk, citing its nutritional benefits and recently discovered inbuilt safety mechanisms. Opponents are skeptical of such nutritional claims and believe the safety risks of unpasteurized milk are simply too high.

“Harvard students came to see Farmageddon movie last September, during the Boston screening. Could that be what got the raw milk issue on their radar screen,” asks Kimberly Hartke, publicist for The Campaign for Real Milk, a project of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
