Raw Milk, again…

The Debate on Raw Milk Continues

I’m really finding it hard  to go along with the notion that the benefits of raw milk out weigh (pun intended!) the chances of contracting food borne illness.  Cases like the this article show the reoccurrence of people becoming sick after drinking raw milk from bacteria infections are almost becoming as normal as the Leaf’s not making the playoffs.

Obviously there is demand for raw milk in Ontario, and normally I would support almost anything to expand the milk market here.  While many supporters the legalization point to other raw milk markets in the U.S. as places of progressive marketing, we really must remind them of how our food standards came to be in Ontario.  Our food safety standards were developed by leading the industry, not following.  Just sayin’.
