Paleo Quick Tip of the Day #96 Raw dairy- the perfect food!




And the Lord said, I am come down to deliver my people out of the hand of the Egyptians and unto a good land, a land flowing with milk and honey.” 

Did you know that the forerunner to today’s Mayo clinic, the Mayo foundation was place where the principle treatment was using raw milk as a cure for many diseases?  It’s true- in 1929, the founder of Mayo, J.E. Crewe, M.D., wrote a book entitled Raw Milk Cures Many Diseases.

Here is an excerpt:  “For fifteen years the writer has employed the certified milk treatment in various diseases and during the past ten he had a small sanitarium devoted principally to this treatment. The results obtained in various types of disease have been so uniformly excellent that one’s conception of disease and its alleviation is necessarily changed.”

It has been substantially proved through many, many studies over many decades that the nutrient composition of raw milk from healthy cows, raised in sanitary conditions on good feed, is vastly superior to commercial, pasteurized milk.  The only reason big agribusiness milk requires pasteurization is because these cows are generally not raised in sanitary conditions, but are instead crowded together inside, in filthy conditions, to get “the most milk for the buck!” 

And the “milk” from these cows is not even vaguely in the same class as the real milk that most of us still cannot even buy, since in many states it is illegal.  Can you imagine: here in Wisconsin, “America’s Dairyland” (it’s right on our license plates!) it is illegal to buy raw, real milk from your neighborhood farmer!  You are supposed to consume fake, sugar-water skimmed milk, ideally, because it is “low in fat”.  What a joke!  The fat in the milk is what carries all the nutrition which makes raw milk one of the most healthy, nutritious foods on the planet.  A food that once was thought to have been consumed since 10,000 years ago, but now archeological evidence indicates that 30,000 years ago people in the High Sinai Peninsula at the north end of the Red Sea used fences to aid in confining and breeding antelope for their milk.-They likely were one of many cultures that used milk long before the beginnings of agriculture.

So now you see, raw milk has been a mainstay of health and wellness for a long, long, long time! 

In fact, there is no food better for you than raw milk- now, at last, there is a bill in front of the Wisconsin legislature to legalize raw milk once again!  I have called my state legislator, and I was told he would support it.  But why was it ever taken away is a legitimate question.

So let me end up with a quote from Dr. Ron-”

The same repressive, reactionary forces that have concentrated power and wealth into the hands of a few have outlawed raw milk and destroyed the ability of small farms to survive and thrive – and ushered in the epidemic of heart disease, cancer and other chronic problems plaguing the modern world.
Raw milk is the key to the health crisis, the farm crisis, the economic crisis, the small town crisis, even the environmental crisis, the political crisis and the educational crisis. Farmers who could freely advertise and sell raw milk and its products, and fresh quality meats, free of government intervention and hassles, could prosper, and their communities could blossom. The restoration of our individual and national health could become reality.

Amen to that!
