Recent claims have caused concerns about raw milk and raw milk cheese. Learn about the potential risks and benefits of raw milk and cheese and why knowing where your dairy products come from is essential.

Many people believe that raw milk is the number one cause of pathogens in dairy, but is it the raw milk itself causing the problem, or is it contaminated milk? It's important to remember that just because something is pasteurized doesn't automatically make it safe.

It's also important to understand that E. coli is not just found in raw milk but can be present in pasteurized milk, too. In fact, we all have E. coli bacteria in our gut right now, which helps with digestion. The problem arises when certain strains of E. coli become pathogenic due to unsanitary conditions on the farm where the milk is produced.

This is why knowing where you're getting your dairy products from is crucial, and ensuring that the farm follows strict hygiene protocols. If proper precautions are taken and the farm is clean, raw milk can be a beneficial option.

One of the main benefits of consuming raw milk and raw milk cheese is that they contain enzymes that aid digestion. For example, lactase helps break down lactose (milk sugar) making it easier to digest for those intolerant to lactose. Raw dairy products also contain probiotic-friendly bacteria that support our immune system and gut health.

Research has shown that children who consume raw milk have lower incidences of asthma, allergies, ear infections, and respiratory infections than those who consume pasteurized milk.

Choosing high-quality raw dairy products from grass-fed cows also provides additional benefits, such as higher levels of essential minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which can aid in weight loss and have anti-inflammatory effects.

Of course, it's important to research and purchase grass-fed raw dairy products from a reputable source that prioritizes cleanliness.

Miraculously she only suffered bumps and bruises & NO broken bones. She is a strong and vibrant lady. She is also my caretaker. I’m 47 and have been disabled since my early 30’s. I’m fortunate enough to have 2 fabulous people caring for me. My mother & my older sister. I’m truly blessed in that area.

    This is exactly why this doctor is so loved. He gives the patients the tools to get involved in their own wellness. People never are completely honest with anyone about their lives for fear of being judged. This way if the patient has the information they can experiment and have a better idea of what questions to ask their doctor and have an overall better and efficient conversation with them.

      @loripiontek Yep, same deal with the ice tea at a fast food places. Some places you can taste the chemicals. Recently some changes have been made and some now use plastic container bags to go into the tea dispenser. So the tea gets poured into the tea “bladder” – a fresh bag / bladder everytime, just like some baby bottles. So the outer tea container / dispenser made of metal and plastic that gets cleaned with chemicals – or doesn’t get cleaned… no longer touches the fresh liquid tea inside. Big improvement. Now as long as they clean the spiggot properly and keep their fingers out of the cup – we are safe.

      To add to that, my great grandfather was running a small farm about the time government took up pasteurization as gospel. And something interesting came to light. Because he was adamant about cleaning evey udder [not just teats] as a cow was brought in to milk… he actually had lower bacteria counts than some farms AFTER pasteurizing. Also, the barn was modified with a scoop system to remove dung, so it wouldn’t get tracked around – and the barn got washed down several times a day. The regulators, with narrative in hand, were near apoplectic because he broke their paradigm – so they ordered him to install pasteurization equipment anyway [or else].

    My uncle was a milk farmer and I would drink raw milk. It tasted so different. The milk was thicker and tasted like grass. My cousins that lived on that farm have the strongest bones. My cousin had a tractor passed over her and survived with any broken bones.
