The cow's milk unpasteurized from cows fed with food not chemically doused is what I meant to say

You realize that all food is made up of chemicals, right?

There was a kid I was friends with from the farm next to us as I was growing up whose family ran a small dairy farm. They only drank raw milk. One winter he quit going to school. We learned he had contracted brucellosis. He almost died and we didn't see him for about six months. He was never the same. It ruined his life. Brucella is just one of many very dangerous pathogens you risk whenever you choose to drink raw milk. Children are especially at risk. Infections are rare but they are serious and debilitating when they occur and it's usually the children who are hit the hardest. I never understood why anyone would accept the risk given that pasteurization kills the bugs. To each his own.

One of our family members runs an organic farm, and we feel very fortunate to benefit from same ... so, yes, to each his own! :)
