"According to the Cornell study performed on CDC data (Centre for disease control USA), there were 1100 illnesses caused by raw milk between 1973 and 2009. There were 422,000 illnesses caused by pasteurised milk. No deaths were recorded from raw milk and at least 50 deaths from pasteurised milk or pasteurised cheese"
cite your facts and research bushy bill… Put up or shut up!
It's amazing how people with no facts to back up their argument resort to the primary school tactic of name calling. All bushie Bill has done in his posts is call those who don't agree with his point of view, ignorant and Neanderthal. Where are your facts Mr bushie Bill? Perhaps you should read the first post written by me. There are hundreds more deaths recorded in America from people consuming pasteurised milk products than those who consume raw milk.
pasteurising milk destroys enzymes, diminishes vitamins, denatures fragile milk proteins, destroys vitamin B12 and vitamin B6, kills beneficial bacteria and actually promotes pathogens.
Europeans can actually buy raw milk and dairy products from vending machines in countries such as France, Croatia, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands and the bodies are not piling up as some would believe. In Australia our cows are primarily grass fed so we have some of the healthiest milk in the world. Properly regulated and tested raw milk sales could be another huge boost to dairy farmers .
The FDA does not mention raw milk on the top 10 most risky foods in America list. "Pasteurise ice cream and pasteurised cheeses make the top 10 risky foods list… According to the Cornell study performed on CDC (Centre for disease control) data, there were 1100 illnesses caused by raw milk between 1973 and 2009 in America. There were 422,000 illnesses caused by pasteurised milk during the same period. No deaths from raw milk and at least 50 deaths from pasteurised milk or pasteurised cheese---the CDC left out the 29 or more people that died from the pasteurised Jalisco cheese listeria incident
The Victorians have had their eyes on the New South Wales market for decades and this is only the start. Victorian milk will be in New South Wales.
the duopoly still rules… Two companies should never be allowed to dictate so much of Australia's food retailing.
sounds like the end of the small farm is nigh… Corporate farms can negotiate with supermarkets much easier than small farmers. Welcome to serfdom.
good article. Pity we don't see stuff like this on the ABC and mainstream media.
So why have they got a ridiculous carbon tax that will do nothing to lower temperatures?
Get rid of this government!
