Raw milk does not go through the pasteurization process, which is designed to kill disease-causing bacteria like E. coli, Campylobacter, Salmonella, and Listeria. The growing interest in eating locally has come to include fresh-from-the-farm dairy products, without full information about the life-threatening illnesses that can result.
Bill Marler is a local foods supporter, but has spent considerable time and energy raising awareness of the dangers of raw milk. He partnered with the University of California-Davis and members of the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) to produce the website RealRawMilkFacts.com, a source of science-based information on raw milk safety.
