Monday's agriculture website of interest: RAW MILK FACTS

Share |
With all the debate going on recently about "real food" and "natural food", there is a lot of information out there for consumers to sift through. I recently found the Real Raw Milk Facts website and found it to be a balanced resource about consuming raw milk and raw milk products.

In 2009, two public health sessions sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Association and the International Association for Food Protection were held to discuss emerging issues surrounding the increasing popularity of raw, unpasteurized, and unprocessed milk. The Real Raw Milk Facts website was inspired by discussions following the presentations. Many participants felt that there was a need for a website that addresses the complex issues surrounding raw milk science and policy. The website is also meant to serve as a clearinghouse for evidence-based information on raw milk benefits and risks including scientific studies, reports and presentations.

The content for this site was developed and reviewed by scientists and health educators in universities, government, industry, and trade organizations. Comments were also solicited from raw milk consumers.
