Drink RAW Milk ??

Postby Renata » Mon Jul 15, 2013 12:24 pm


All babies drink breast milk right ? All animals breast feed too. They say mother's milk is the best.

If so, why don't we drink Milk RAW in it's natural state ?

What happens when they pasturise & homogenise Milk ?

Store bought milk lasts really long compared to when I buy from the farmer. I've noticed RAW cow milk is creamier, tastier & when I leave it in the fridge the cream settles at the top. I can scoop out the cream for my cats & just have the milk. There's alot of info floating around the net that says milk is bad for our body, it causes inflamation. Which Milk is bad for us ??? Because there are 2 kinds. Store bought is completely different from the REAL RAW cow milk.

I stopped drinking milk for almost a year & now I've started back ... I love milk, it's so yummy :oops:

IMO in the USA it's because milk is produced by major dairy companies and no longer by a farmer. A few thousand head of cows can't be watched for signs of possible disease and the possibility of contamination becomes much greater.

Renata wrote:What happens when they pasturise & homogenise Milk ?

Pasturization is the process of purifying milk with heat to kill off bacteria and such. Homogenizing blends the fats (cream) with the liquid (milk) to make a consistent product. I still think all they do is skim off the cream in most cases to sell it separately.

Now you can add irradiation to the list. Irradiated milk last a really long time.

Every week they decide something is no longer good for us. Then they change their minds. I'd like to know who "they" are because I think they're all crazy. :lol:

Ok Ninja If the cow is sick we could go ill from drinking it's milk RAW. We should at least boil it. It's logical, makes sense !
What's also logical to me is the evidence of babies & animals all drinking milk straight from the mother, no pasturise nothing, pure' & they live, even get stronger & grow really quickly.

Hope the guys don't read this lol ... I tasted my breast milk out of curiosity, :oops: it tasted strange, fruity :? but good.
I literally saw my baby double up in size & weight from only my milk it's amazing ! Born 7 lbs & 1 month later was 18 lbs & growing on my milk alone. Wow incredible!

I wish I had a lab & could run tests for everything to see what's right for us & what's not.

And this raw milk is full of necessary antibodies for a healthy immune system. Nothing can beat mother's milk but there's some corporation out there who would like to make millions from some inferior imitation.

Yes, it is incredible.

That's always been a common thing here. The old term for it was "wet nurse".

Now is it a 'superfood'? It depends on how you define that word.

Wikipedia wrote:Superfood is a term used in various contexts. For example, it is sometimes used to describe food with high nutrient or phytochemical content that may confer health benefits, with few properties considered to be negative, such as being high in saturated fats or in the case of processed products: artificial ingredients, food additives or contaminants.
Blueberries, often called a superfood[1]

The term is not in common use by dietitians and nutrition scientists, many of whom dispute that particular foodstuffs have the health benefits often claimed by advocates of particular superfoods.[2] There is no legal definition of the term and it has been alleged that this has led to it being misleadingly used as a marketing tool.[3]

To answer my own qustion on if Milk is a superfood? I would say yes but' only for Babies. In nature all animals breast feed then stop & start eating. Animals have natural survivial insticncts and tactics. We don't! We are the only animals still drinking milk as Adults :oops: I think from a logical standpoint we should not be drinking milk as 'adults'. The only milk we should drink is from our mothers not stealing calves milk from cows :|

So I'm going to stop drinking cow milk again. I'll stick to coconut milk.

I think peoples' main issue with commercially produced milk, at least in America, is that the cows are mainly corn-fed, which from what I understand is very bad for them, so they have to keep them healthy with antibiotics which naturally end up in their milk at some point. Another issue is that many places use growth hormones as well which will also end up in the milk.

The problem with what "they" say is that if you do a duckduckgo (google alternative) search for anything, you will find just as many results that support a topic as you will those that oppose it. Another factor compounding the issue are companies that pay specific research places for results, maybe something like "is drinking milk good for adult humans"... well of course it is, each 1cup (about a ¼ liter) has 8 grams of protein, 25% of your daily dose of vitamin D and 30% of your daily suggested dose of calcium... but... (insert antibiotics, growth hormones, and whatever else is potentially bad about it). The wording should be "do the benefits of milk consumption by adult humans outweigh the negatives" then people could simply decide for themselves given the list of pros and cons, but a list of possible pros and cons isn't as persuasive as "Milk is good for you!" and unfortunately too many in my country prefer to just be told what to believe.

Now I'm not saying that I don't drink milk or that I think it's a terrible thing to drink. I use cream, butter and cheese in cooking, but rarely will I just have a glass of milk with anything.

I stopped eating cheese a long time ago when I used to live in the UK. I started gaining weight & had poor eating habits while I lived there, & cheese was one of the foods I ate daily, so I cut it out to maintain my weight & keep fit.

Hey Sunshine :mrgreen: Welcome !

I love milk & I'm not sure how great it is with all the info flying around as you mentioned. I do get milk from grass fed cows from a family that just sells to neighbours if they need. I'm forever trying to keep fit & eat healthy 8-)

Yeah, my knowledge is really only about the dangers of mass produced milk here where I live. I have never had "fresh" milk... but I always imagine it's much more amazing. People call me crazy but fresh eggs taste so much better to me than the ones in my local grocery, so I can only speculate it's the same with fresh dairy.

Real Raw Milk is very creamy & it's tastier, even if you scoop out the cream from it. The milk I get is thick. I tend to boil it & store it in glass jars. After awhile a thick cream settles at the top. You have the option to shake it & drink it all, or scoop out the cream. I scoop it out & give it to my cats, then have the milk. Store bought milk & frsh raw milk are definatly 2 different drinks ... looks & tastes different.

Yes, both raw, fresh milk and fresh eggs have a MUCH better flavor all the way around. I remember when I tasted my first glass of 'store bought' milk.... YUCK! The same goes for a farm raised, fresh killed chicken compared to one that's been raised by a corporation. The first time I ate a packaged chicken I remember that it tasted like chewing on a band-aid. It was horrible.
