In late September, the state of California claimed to have linked cases of E. coli poisoning to raw organic milk produced by Mark McAfee, and imposed a quarantine and recall.
McAfee's 15,000 customers regarded the recall as a government conspiracy to deny them raw milk, and raced for the last bottles on the health-food market shelves.
California officials attempted to blame the owner/farmer of Organic Pastures Dairy for a sub-strain of E. coli bacteria (O157:H7) that seriously sickened five children, and health officials tested samples at the farmer's dairy twice.
However, they found no 0157:H7, and eventually lifted the quarantine. Once again, his raw milk became available on grocery store shelves in California.
The Los Angeles Times is the latest mainstream media source to pick up on what we're doing to change the face of health into a safer one that diagnoses and treats conditions naturally. I was pleased to find them refer to me as a "naturopathic guru."
Too bad, it's in connection with another in the growing number of stories linked to the government's heavy-handed approach to raw milk.
Fortunately, Tom McAfee's Organic Pastures Dairy brand is back on the shelves, competing next to "organic" brands that are as health-harming and pasteurized as the conventional varieties sold in most grocery stores.
The benefits of drinking raw milk are more than obvious, just as the ridiculous attempts by many so-called "experts" to dispel them. Just a reminder, you can find a local provider of raw milk near you by visiting the Real Milk site.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of raw milk:
