I have a comment for the article on raw milk consumption.
One of the basic premises of the Great American Experiment (the birth of our nation) was that government should not interfere in the minute details of the lives of the populace. Therefore, I feel it very important that citizens be permitted to find nutritious food that fits their own lifestyles.
Certainly, there should be education regarding food safety - but the best way to encourage farmers to be safe is for the farmers to drink and eat their own products. If consumers buy local and know the farms and farmers from which their food comes, the incentive is there for the farm to produce the best and cleanest product possible.
So, to the government I say, "Mind your own business!" And I quote from a book I read a long time ago (author and title now forgotten), "A government big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take away all you need."
