Finally, a serious and candid conversation about raw milk, unlike any that has ever occurred in the many years since raw milk became a subject of contentious debate. The Raw Milk Answer Book raises the most difficult questions surrounding our most controversial food - the risk of getting seriously ill, whether it should be fed to children, the credibility of European research indicating raw milk has important healing powers - and answers them in calm, nonideological terms that are understandable to beginners and experienced drinkers alike. It is an engaging conversation, unblinking in its focus on real-world data and unafraid to take issue with wild claims on either side of the raw milk controversy.
Raw milk is so controversial that obtaining believable information about it has become nearly impossible. On one side proponents often portray raw milk as a miracle food. In their view it strengthens the immune system so as to reduce our incidence of health problems small and large - from colds and flus to cancer, diabetes, asthma, and allergies - and it is extremely safe to boot. On the other side, opponents portray raw milk as having no more health or nutritional value than the pasteurized variety that can be bought in any supermarket. They also view it as one of the most dangerous foods known to mankind - so inherently dangerous it can kill you. Obviously both sides can't be correct. What is the real story? The Raw Milk Answer Book provides the real story by answering more than 200 of the most common questions that come up about raw milk.
