Alvin Schlangen is an anarchist. Who gave him the right to choose which laws applied to him and which didn't? If we all had that right many of us would choose not to pay our taxes.

Odds are, just like the other nutjob farmer who thinks the laws don't apply to him and made people sick, this guy isn't paying taxes, either.

I grewup drinking unpasteurized milk. If you knew all the ingredients the food industry is putting in your food, you would be glad to have real milk.

I wish I could have some "real" milk again! I have fond memories of drinking it at my Grandparent's house. So yummy. The stuff in the stores can't even compare. We never ever got sick from it - but Grandpa was meticulous about the milking equipment and milk storage.

The French love their raw milk cheeses and real milk. They aren't all germophobic like we are. So, I found these statistics interesting in that light.

United States:
26,000 foodborne illnesses per 100,000
111 hospitalizations per 100,000
1.7 deaths per 100,000
France:
1,210 foodborne illnesses per 100,000
24 hospitalizations per 100,000
.09 deaths per 100,000

Maybe the MDA isn't really all that interested in protecting our health as it is in protecting Big Ag and it's conglomerates.

Butt out, "health officials". If I or anyone else wants to drink raw milk AND accept the responsibility for any consequences, it is our right to do so. If you don't like raw milk, then don't drink it. It really is that simple, to everyone except regulatory busybodies and their totalitarian supporters.

I agree with you, Nanny, except the "AND accept the responsibiliy for any consequences" my guess is if anything happened to the consumers, they would be wondering why the government wasn't protecting them from the big bad milk dude.

Government again knows whats best for you right? Go ahead and smoke those cigarettes people, but don't touch that fresh milk! Somehow people drank milk for hundreds of years without cooking it with no problems. McWatt your simply a buffoon who can't see the big picture of what is happening here who has no concern about individual freedoms and choices. You want and need the government in your life and to decide what is good and bad for you. They really got it right with fluoride. Ahem!
