Raw Milk is Killing Millions of People; Must Be Banned

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. Thanks to Travis Holte for the link.

    When an American visiting France complained about his failure to obtain pasteurized milk in that country, a Frenchman put him in his place by replying: “No, we don’t have pasteurized milk in France, but we do have Pasteur!”. (Although London historian David Edgerton, in his book The Shock of the Old, insists that this anecdote dates from the 1960s, I first encountered it in a newspaper article which had been published by Nancy Mitford a decade before.)

    Hi Karen, I sent this using your contact page, but given the problems you have had lately, I figure you have too much to go through there
