  1. I watched the debate, and read a few FDA and CDC publications. Yes, raw milk may be slightly more likely to carry pathogens than a cooked milk. However, 1) other foods are more likely to kill you, 2) raw milk outbreaks tend to be small and localized, and tend to be of pathogens that cause diarrhea, and not death and/or paralysis, and 3) we sell plenty of raw products with warnings to cook them, we should have the option of buying raw milk to do what we want with.
