“Getting back to nature” – that’s what many Americans are trying to do with the foods that we buy and eat. We are shopping at farmer’s markets, purchasing organic food, participating in food cooperatives, and even growing our own food. Many people are eating food with minimal processing, and some are even choosing to drink raw milk.
Raw milk and products made from it, however, can pose severe health risks, including death. That’s because raw milk has not undergone a process called pasteurization that kills disease-causing germs.
