Don't your milk purveyors have a provision for allowing raw milk for pet consumption? If so, get a dog.
I see that the rules restricting raw milk sales are fairly new 2001/2004
. There are a lot of other sources
of food poisoning, but they don't restrict or outlaw raw poultry, raw eggs, raw oysters, raw spinach/lettuce(
Warnings are provided to wash and/or cook these items to reduce/eliminate the hazard of food-borne illness.
Do you have access to pasteurized but not homogenized milk? That's an excellent alternative which makes for outstanding curds and cheese.
I too fervently hope that governments allow more freedom of choice about what we consume. Recent legislation in the state of Washington cleared the long-standing restriction against marijuana use. Its benefits and uses can now be openly explored where heretofore they were illegal. There is a decided effort to remove the plant from the federal Class One drug category. It is being tested and explored in labs to develop healthful therapies from the multitude of components found in the plant.
Why can't a similar focus exist wherein the benefits from the different components of raw milk are highlighted and promoted? Hey, we're all adults here...why are we treated like children who cannot make reasonable, rational decisions about how we prepare the foods that we eat?
