9 Facts on Drinking Milk From a Nondrinker

So, Where Does that Leave You?

During my friend’s recent pregnancy she craved milk (horrifying for me), and I will never forget when she used her finger to wipe the cream from the rim of the raw bottle and licked off the cream. I physically cringed and hoped with everything in me I wouldn’t experience this craving when I get around to carrying a fetus. The FDA would cringe even harder if they saw a pregnant woman drinking raw milk. They warn of miscarriage and a list of bad things that can happen to your baby should they be exposed to possible bacteria in raw milk. A few months later and the baby is here, happy and healthy.
So where does that leave you? Do you research, decide what’s best for you and go for it whole-heartedly. Because in the end …

    Hello,
    Note that while you didn’t find any instances of raw milk sicknesses or death, if you search journalism databases like LexisNexis, AP, BBC newswire, your results would have pulled sicknesses resulting from raw milk. Here are two examples:

    http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2013/05/20/mdh-25-in-minnesota-sickened-over-raw-cheese/
    Lumping sickness/death together in your article allows the reader to assume neither have occurred due to raw milk consumption. That is inaccurate.
