What if someone told you, “There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food.”1
Or that you have “… no generalized right to bodily and physical health.”2
What would you say? What would you do?
I didn’t get this out of a George Orwell science fiction novel.
These are quotes from our government.
This was the FDA’s response when consumers and farmers from six different states filed a lawsuit to reverse the ban on selling raw milk between states.
Raw milk is milk that isn’t pasteurized. It builds your immunity. It contains enzymes, vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids, and amino acids that get destroyed through pasteurization.
Federal bureaucrats say you don’t have the right to drink raw milk. And that they have the right to tell you what you can and cannot eat and drink.
Plenty of people have joined the fight against it. But the government is fighting back and terrorizing families.
Imagine being one of the farmers: It’s 5:00 a.m. You walk out your front door and federal agents blind you with flashlights. They slap a warrant into your hands.
Men draw guns and root like pigs through your coolers and freezers. It wakes your family.
Your children cry out, “Is Daddy going to jail?”3
All because you’re selling milk?
It’s not a story. It happened recently to an Amish farmer in Pennsylvania. And it’s happening to many small, independent farmers just like him.
I’ve studied history and cultures all over the world. And I believe what John Stuart Mills said back in the 1800s: “Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.”4
Man has had the right to choose what he eats and drinks as far back as caveman times. It includes raw milk. And any other food you choose to eat or drink for your health and well-being.
Today, you ought to be able to buy food directly from a farmer. Or from the mega-corporations that pasteurize, process, and package the life out of food.
My advice to you is choose wisely and support small, local farmers. If you’ve been a subscriber for a while, you’re already aware of the benefits. Independent farming practices are humane, and the quality of food is superior.
Below you’ll find sources to find raw milk and other products from independent farmers:
