Cries Remain In Raw Milk Debate
NPR food commentator Bonny Wolf mulls over the raw milk debate, looking for pros and cons on both sides:
I first drank raw milk two years ago, at a dinner given by a college anthropology class in Maryland. The professor, whose three small children drink only raw milk, had to go to Pennsylvania to get it since it's illegal to sell it in Maryland.
I felt a slight thrill of danger before my first sip because, according to the federal government, drinking raw milk is a very bad idea.
It didn't taste like a bad idea. It tasted like — milk. Fresh, rich milk.
