Diane Edwards Anger of Ripley shares in her letter to the Ontario Farmer editor that her experience with raw milk differs from those of raw-milk advocates.
She tells of how when she was pregnant with her first child in the 1970s, that her husband brought her some raw milk from the farm on which he worked. At the time, she was 7 months pregnant.
Unfortunately, she became very ill from the raw milk and lost 30 pounds. Her son was born with respiratory health problems, and had further problems well into adulthood, although a decisive link between the problems and the raw milk has not been confirmed.
Anger warns against anyone drinking raw milk, and warns against those who are looking to “get back to nature” for their food consumption. She believes that the modernized methods are there for human safety, and has chosen to drink only pasteurized milk as a result.
