Kids Who Drink Raw Milk Have Less Asthma and Allergies

Drinking Raw Milk

Story at-a-glance -

  • School-aged children who drank raw milk were 41 percent less likely to develop asthma and about 50 percent less likely to develop hay fever than children who drank store-bought (pasteurized) milk
  • The beneficial effect may have been due to whey proteins, including BSA and alpha-lactalbumin, in the raw milk, which were destroyed by the heating process in the pasteurized milk
  • Raw milk is rich in beneficial raw fats, amino acids, and proteins in a highly bioavailable form, all 100-percent digestible
  • Drinking concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) milk raw would be extremely dangerous, as it must be pasteurized for safety; milk from grass-fed cows raised on smaller, clean farms can be safely consumed without being pasteurized, provided the farmer is committed to providing a safe, quality product
