Raw Milk is Killing Millions of People; Must Be BannedSaturday, February 25, 2012
This is one of those junk science headlines that you just love to hate: “Feds: Fresh milk 150 times more dangerous than pasteurized dairy.” I’ll try to summarize this piece from the Washington Crimes without being too silly.
The government needs to go after raw milk farmers because it is “150 times more dangerous” than government-approved milk. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) did a 13-year study that found an amazing number of people (200!) who were hospitalized due to “disease outbreaks” of raw milk. A near mass extermination that should propel our authorities into action to save us from further carnage! Diarrhea and a stomach ache is now a disease outbreak.
Here are some real statistics on raw milk (at end of article), and better yet, here is the best – and most hilarious – explanation, ever, of junk scientific methodology and how the media distorts the already distorted studies with sensationalist headlines and junk content.
