CDC Skewing Data to Make Raw Milk Look ‘Dangerous’?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/02/27 19:39:02

A new government study warns that “outbreaks” blamed on raw milk were “150 times greater” than outbreaks attributed to pasteurized milk, citing statistics from a 13-year period ending in 2006.

But a foundation that runs education programs on science, diet and health says the results were skewed because of the way federal report authors “cherry picked” data.

Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation, said the new government study listed an average of 315 illnesses a year “from all dairy products for which the pasteurization status was known.”

“Of those, there was an average of 112 illnesses each year attributed to all raw dairy products and 203 associated with pasteurized dairy products,” she said.

Citing the nearly 24,000 “foodborne illnesses reported each year on average,” she noted that “dairy products are simply not a high risk product.”

    I was raised on a farm and drank milk straight from the cow... right after we got done milking and it was still warm. We also fed it to the cats that way since they gathered in the barn at milking time.
