We don't even know where to begin with this book. So much is covered & we will never remember every important detail. It doesn't matter if you are "for" or "against" raw milk, you should read this book. If you are American you should be for freedom of choice. To us that is what this book boils down to. America the land of the free, where our government tells us what we can and cannot eat.
We are not allowed to drink raw milk in almost all states. States that allow it are very strict & hard on the sellers of raw milk. Can you get sick from raw milk? Yes, of course you can. Can you get sick when you go to the grocery store? Yes, of course you can. Can raw milk kill you? Why yes it can. The odds of it killing you? NILL. Can you die from food purchased at the grocery store? Sure you can. The odds...well they are MUCH higher. Now here is a little wake up call for those of you in fear of raw milk - pasteurized milk can make you sick too.
Our point is that anything can make us sick & death can happen from just about anything as well! We should be allowed to choose our "poison" The government is not our parents. We should not want them to be! We foolish Americans are slowly allowing our freedoms to be taken away. Those of you who disagree, can now become very offended when we tell you you are not a person but one of many sheepeople. Go ahead prove is wrong & read this book - we dare you!
For those of you who are free thinkers you will probably find this book as alarming as we did. As the title says ..."America's emerging battle over food rights" it's the People Vs the Government. A government that is supposed to serve the people. Now there's a joke!
Now it's milk that must be pasteurized. Imagine how you would feel if you could no longer buy raw meat or veggies to cook (or not) how you see fit? You can only buy cooked meat & veggies. It is illegal to buy raw & those who sell raw are criminals. Treated like drug dealers. Think we're being silly? Read the book & see if you still feel that way.
