"...Last October, Canadian farmer Michael Schmidt asked for the maximum possible sentence after he was found in contempt of court for ignoring an order to stop selling raw milk. The judge didn’t give him jail time, saying he didn’t want to make him a martyr to the cause..." Read rest of article at:

Here is what people on Facebook are saying...

"I remember my Dr. I went to growing up always told us that there was poop in milk."
"My pediatrician was a staunch anti-milk person claiming it was entirely detrimental and every other mammal had the good sense to stop drinking milk after weening... especially another mammal's milk!"
"Yeah, that is how my doc believed. It makes sense to me. I do think if you do consume dairy products they should be raw though."

"First of all, please understand that I do not recommend drinking pasteurized milk of any kind – ever. Because once milk has been pasteurized it’s more or less “dead,” and offers little in terms of real nutritional value to anyone, whether you show signs of intolerance to the milk or not.

How to Find Truly Healthy Milk
Depending on where you live, A2 milk may not be that hard to find. In fact, herds in much of Asia, Africa, and parts of Southern Europe still produce primarily A2 milk.

If you live in the United States, New Zealand, Australia or other areas of Europe, however, you’ll need to look a bit harder since the majority of cattle in these areas are A1 breeds.

As you know, I advocate getting your raw milk from a local dairy farmer that raises cattle organically, letting his livestock graze on fresh grasses. So to ensure the milk you’re getting is A2 milk -- the type that has not been associated with illness and instead appears to have numerous health benefits – you’d just have to ask what kind of breed he raises. (Remember, A2 breeds include Jersey, Guernsey, Asian and African cows.)

Buying retail (in those states where raw milk sale is legal) would require just a little more work, since you’d have to get the contact information of the milk supplier and then call or write them to find out what breeds are used.

Fortunately, grass-fed, raw milk almost always comes from small dairy farms that do not co-mingle their milk with milk from other farms, so this makes ensuring you’re buying A2 milk quite a bit easier.

You can start you search for raw milk retailers in the US by going to the RealMilk web site. also has a store locator for California.

(You can use the following hyperlinks to find out the legal status of raw milk in the U.S. state or country where you live.)

Yet another option is raw goat- and sheep’s milk, as neither of them contains the harmful BCM-7."
