FDA and Milk Regulation

• The PPJ Gazette
The FDA has apparently decided that a certain sector of milk production in the United States does not have enough regulation in sales, barter or sharing. This agency would direct one to this statement: “Risks… include exposure to infectious diseases, to chemical contaminants such as some illegal drugs, and to a limited number of prescription drugs that might be in the… milk, if … not been adequately screened.” Pretty serious as it should be. According to the FDA this milk can be contaminated with a variety of illegal substances including STDs, environmental contaminants, herbal supplements, pharmaceuticals (with the exception of progestin-only BCP- that seems “acceptable”) – yet consumers are willing to pay up to $5.00 per ounce. Purchasers are even willing to take the “risk” of securing this substance from “unapproved” sources and even contemplate “flash pasteurization” for safety.
