Even in the tropics, long before refrigeration was invented, raw milk
was an essential and safe food source for many cultures. It was
regarded as ‘white blood,’ a kind of ‘stem cell’ of foods, and people
understood that in trying circumstances, you could live on it
exclusively and remain perfectly healthy. After all, just as eggs
contain all the nutrients needed to nourish a growing chick, raw milk
contains all the nutrients needed to nourish a growing calf; it needs to be a near-perfect food.
Below is a list of reasons why raw cow’s milk enjoys such a positive,
time-honored reputation. Throughout the list, comparisons will also be
made with pasteurized and homogenized milk.
