    When i run out of raw yogurt for my morning smoothies, it could ruin my day.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    In Cabo San Lucas Mexico, all milk in the grocery stores (the real Mexican ones) is sold at room temp which is about 80+.

    Oh yeah, raw milk. The number one threat to our society. Doesn't the government have better things to do with its time and our money?
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    It kills all the beneficial enzymes within it, some of which help you with the very digestion process. It also kills any vitamins that can't survive heating, such as B vitamins.

    Is this a constitutional matter perhaps, but those who raid outfits that sell this product, well it's unconstitutional IMO. The question is who can correct this injustice, the people can but we are apparently to lazy or busy to do so.

    Well, in terms of human health, the government can bypass the constitution for public safety. What they are doing is not wrong in terms of legal action. What is wrong is that contaminated milk is a thing of the past.

    There are food companies with increasingly lax standards applied to them, so we get outbreaks of listeria and salmonella in meats and even produce that cause nation-wide concern. Yet we never remove those products from the shelves or even sanction the companies who make these fatal errors. So we have a nice double standard happening here. The same people who panic over raw milk and call for restrictions won't say anything when people are being poisoned yearly from contaminated food products that are due to unkept industry farming practices.

    There was mass infection of TB about 60 years ago when infected cows were being milked, but that was because we had no proper testing standard for TB in cattle, or an effective cure for TB. Since then TB has been virtually wiped out in North America. There is NO justifiable reason to deny people access to raw milk at this point, other than to stop small time farmers from competing with an organic product.
