But since you believe that raw things are more "healthy," I encourage you to eat raw chicken with your raw milk!!
So tell me #$%$, how is life without sandwich meats, or raw oysters, or fresh apples, pears, oranges, or bananas? No butter, no cheeses, no yogurt, no breads with their yeasts, no fresh green salads? I bet everything you eat is from a can!!

It is estimated that 500 to 1,000 species of bacteria live in the human gut Bacterial cells are much smaller than human cells, and there are at least ten times as many bacteria as human cells in the body (approximately 1014 versus 1013). The mass of microorganisms are estimated to account for 1-3% total body mass. Though members of the flora are found on all surfaces exposed to the environment (on the skin and eyes, in the mouth, nose, small intestine), the vast majority of bacteria live in the large intestine.
Many of the bacteria in the digestive tract, collectively referred to as the gut flora, are able to break down certain nutrients such as carbohydrates that humans otherwise could not digest. The majority of these commensal bacteria are anaerobes, meaning they survive in an environment with no oxygen. Normal flora bacteria can act as opportunistic pathogens at times of lowered immunity.
According to scientific research, the human gut consists of different enterotypes that have an inconspicuous impact on human health. It is suggested that the intestines of infants are colonized by bacteria that alter the gut to support those specific bacteria. The average human body, consisting of about ten trillion cells, has about ten times that number of microorganisms in the gut. The metabolic activity performed by these bacteria is equal to that of a virtual organ, leading to gut bacteria being termed a "forgotten" organ.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The human microbiome (or human microbiota) is the aggregate of microorganisms, a microbiome that resides on the surface and in deep layers of skin, in the saliva and oral mucosa, in the conjunctiva, and in the gastrointestinal tracts. They include bacteria, fungi, and archaea. Some of these organisms perform tasks that are useful for the human host. However, the majority have been too poorly researched for us to understand the role they play. Those that are expected to be present, and that under normal circumstances do not cause disease, but instead participate in maintaining health, are deemed members of the normal flora. Though widely known as "microflora", this is, in technical terms, a misnomer, since the word root "flora" pertains to plants, and biota refers to the total collection of organisms in a particular ecosystem. Recently, the more appropriate term "microbiota" is applied, though its use has not eclipsed the entrenched use and recognition of "flora" with regard to bacteria and other microorganisms. Both terms are being used in different literature. ***Studies in 2009 questioned whether the decline in biota (including microfauna) as a result of human intervention might impede human health.*** Most of the microbes associated with humans appear to be not harmful at all, but rather assist in maintaining processes necessary for a healthy body.
Populations of microbes inhabit the skin and mucosa. Their role forms part of normal, healthy human physiology, however if microbe numbers grow beyond their typical ranges (often due to a compromised immune system) or if microbes populate atypical areas of the body (such as through poor hygiene or injury), disease can result.
In 2012, some 200 researchers from some 80 research institutions comprising the Human Microbiome Project (HMP) Consortium have used advanced DNA-sequencing to identify and catalogue the thousands of microorganisms
Funniest joke retardo is that you obviously do not even know what pasteurization does. The following is from wiki
Pasteurization or pasteurisation is a process of heating food, which is usually a liquid, to a specific temperature for a predefined length of time and then immediately cooling it after it is removed from the heat. It is named after microbiologist Louis Pasteur for his work on his pasteurization process. This process slows spoilage caused by microbial growth in the food.
Unlike sterilization, pasteurization is not intended to kill all micro-organisms in the food.
OMG. Consumer reports has just released a study on our food. (yahoo does not like either and wont let it post) Seems that 97% of the chicken sold in stores they tested harbored pathogenic bacterias. So much for Obama's Food Safety Modernization Act. So tell us retardo. Where do you go to find sterile, completely, thoroughly dead food? Hehehehe.
Campylobacter in raw milk at body temperature (37o C):
Bovine strains decreased by 100 cells/ml in 48 hrs.
Poultry strains decreased by 10,000 cells/ml in 48 hrs.
The protective components worked more quickly to reduce levels of pathogens in warm milk than in chilled milk.
The FDA has ruled that all juice should be pasteurized, because raw juice might be a source of pathogens.
Yet researchers have found fungus that is resistant to pressure and heat in processed fruit juices.
One study found that 17% of Nigerian packages of orange juice and 20% of mango and tomato juices contained heat resistant fungi.1
Researchers also found E. coli in the orange juice that was pressure resistant and had survived pasteurization.2
In one study, heat-treated and acid-hydrolyzed orange juice was tested for mutagenic activity. The authors hypothesized that the heating process produces intermediate products, which under test conditions, give rise to mutagenicity, and cytotoxicity.3
In another study, gel filtration and high performance liquid chromatography were used to obtain mutagenic fractions from heated orange juice.4
A recent outbreak of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a neonatal intensive care unit caused by a contaminated milk bank pasteurizer resulted in 31 cases of infection and four deaths.
Seven strains of E. coli O157:H7 in amounts of 1 million/ml added to raw milk. The pathogen failed to grow and died off gradually.1
L. mono added to raw milk at 98.6o F. After 56 hours, no viable cells of L. mono were detectible.2
“The growth of Staph. Aureus, S. Enteritidis and L. monocytogenes in raw milk at 99o F was reduced markedly compared to the growth of these organisms in pasteurized milk.”3
Five strains of E. coli O157:H7 did not grow at 41o F and decreased over days.4
(Journal references of publications upon request)
In a response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the Centers for Disease Control provided data on raw milk outbreaks 1993-2005—a 13-year period.
In this report, CDC listed NO cases of foodborne illness from raw milk caused by Listeria during the period.
Recently the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) has suspended sales of several dairies and issued inflammatory press releases, claiming Listeria monocytogenes in the milk.
Independent tests have shown NO Listeria in the milk and in all cases sales were resumed. There were no illnesses.
Is the PDA trying to falsely build a case that Listeria is a problem in raw milk?
Or are they simply illiterate idiots like retardo?
In a 2003 USDA/FDA report: Compared to raw milk, there are
515 times more illnesses from L-mono (listeria) due to deli meats
29 times more illness from L-mono due to pasteurized milk
So the gest of it retardo, is that raw milk contains a number of enzymes that destroy pathogenic bacteria. Pasteurized milk destroys those enzymes but does not kill all pathogenic bacteria that it could be contaminated with. Now understand that all the little bacteria you are so worried about contaminate food as a result of human handling. That can happen to anything, any food, cooked or not. If that were to occur, the raw milk contains factors to destroy that particular bacteria, your pasteurized milk has lost that ability. So in reality, raw milk is far safer than pasteurized. And another fact, in analysis of CDC data, most contamination to dairy products occurs in pasteurized products, not unpasteurized.
So I laugh again at retardo's stupidity and belief in a medical paradigm that in fact dates to the 19th century and has long since been disproven. Does she really work for Microsoft? I'd bet my money she is in truth, a just another idiotic incompetent government employee.
Another impressive enzyme beyond retardo's realm of stupidy that is found in raw milk is lactoperoxidase. The most interesting thing about it is that a number of other countries who do not surrender their science to gov employees are seriously considering stopping pasteurization due to all its negative health effects and simply adding additional lactoperoxidase to RAW milk.
Lactoperoxidase is a peroxidase enzyme secreted from mammary, salivary, and other mucosal glands that functions as a natural antibacterial agent. Lactoperoxidase is a member of the heme peroxidase family of enzymes. In humans, lactoperoxidase is encoded by the LPO gene.
Lactoperoxidase catalyzes the oxidation of a number of inorganic and organic substrates by hydrogen peroxide. These substrates include bromide and iodide and therefore lactoperoxidase can be categorised as a haloperoxidase. Another important substrate is thiocyanate. The oxidized products produced through the action of this enzyme have potent bactericidal activities. Lactoperoxidase together with its inorganic ion substrates, hydrogen peroxide, and oxidized products is known as the lactoperoxidase system.
The lactoperoxidase system plays an important role in the innate immune system by killing bacteria in milk and mucosal (linings of mostly endodermal origin, covered in epithelium, which are involved in absorption and secretion) secretions hence augmentation of the lactoperoxidase system may have therapeutic applications. Furthermore, addition or augmentation of the lactoperoxidase system has potential applications in controlling bacteria in food and consumer health care products. The lactoperoxidase system does not attack DNA and is not mutagenic. However, under certain conditions, the lactoperoxidase system may contribute to oxidative stress. Furthermore, lactoperoxidase may contribute to the initiation of breast cancer, through its ability to oxidize estrogenic hormones producing free radic
A couple months back BlowStalker was screaming hysterically that no one was signing up for Obamacare. I pointed out that it was a stupid claim, because history shows that people wait until the last minute to sign up for new programs (exactly that happened when RomneyCare launched in Mass.)
retardo now calls the WH liars contradicting their claim that the website crashed because so many people rushed to sign up. What is even funnier is that retardo is now warning us that the real crash is yet to come as everyone is waiting for the last minute.
So retardo, did you hear the latest that Obamacare coverage is limited to ones locat vicinity? Those on it better not dare leave town as they will then not be covered. Gotta love you dems!!!
retardo, I already provided you scientific studies showing your most feared bacteria do not prosper in raw milk. Should I waste my time further with one who is such an idiot as to take BS fed out by gov epidemiologists over that of molecular biologists? Well why not.
There are a number of enzymes found in raw milk that are destroyed in ultra pasteurized milk and nearly so in pasteurized (which retardo does not grasp still contains those bacteria she so fears).
Lactoferrin (LF), also known as lactotransferrin (LTF), is a multifunctional protein of the transferrin family. Lactoferrin is a globular glycoprotein with a molecular mass of about 80 kDa that is widely represented in various secretory fluids, such as milk, saliva, tears, and nasal secretions. Lactoferrin is also present in secondary granules of PMN and is secreted by some acinar cells. Lactoferrin can be purified from milk or produced recombinantly. Human colostrum ("first milk") has the highest concentration, followed by human milk, then cow milk (150 mg/L).
Lactoferrin is one of the components of the immune system of the body; it has antimicrobial activity (bacteriocide, fungicide) and is part of the innate defense, mainly at mucoses. In particular, lactoferrin provides antibacterial activity to human infants. Lactoferrin interacts with DNA and RNA, polysaccharides and heparin, and shows some of its biological functions in complexes with these ligands.

I recommend you hold off taking the GED test.
I recommend you drop the false persona of having a PhD in a science field. If it is so obvious to me who you claim lacks a GED, how do you think you appear to those who are educated?
pathetic try retardo. Why would Obama's view on democracy be different for the Middle East than OUTSIDE the middle east? Are you now accusing him of Islamphobia or being anti-semitic?
Nowhere did I imply that Obama was "right" about the Middle East -- indeed I called his views "naïve." (Apparently she has no idea what that word means). But the correctness of his views is of course irrelevant. The ONLY issue at hand was whether his comments related to Benghazi specifically, and of course they didn't. Indeed, she cites a whole litany of countries (Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Israel) that Obama might have been referring to (as well as one -- Afghanistan -- that he clearly wasn't), further proving the only point I was trying to make -- which is that his comments were about the Middle East in general, and not about the Benghazi killings in particular.
Well I stand corrected retardo. For help with your own reading comprehension, I did not say Afghanistan was part of the middle east. My failing was in assuming that Obama believed in democracy in all countries, not simply the middle east. Thanks for clarifying that he is in fact, the dictator in chief.
Rodentess, I never said correlation proves causation. What happened was that Statistics Rodent (and perhaps you) claimed correlation NEVER proves causation. What I said was that there are certain instances where correlation proves causation, and some instances when it does not. For example, if 100 people were given an experimental drug, and within 10 minutes, all of their noses turned purple and fell off (while no such thing happened to a good control group) the only reasonable thing to conclude was that the nose problem was caused by what they were given. That does not mean that in *all* circumstances correlation implies causation.
Oh vermit, always lying, and always wrong. Sorry but even a 100% statistical response would not PROVE a cause. If you were a real PhD, you would know that. Yes, it does imply, Yes it would be a logical conclusion, but not PROOOF. Gravity for example, is an accepted theory because it always occurs on Earth in normal conditions. It remains however, unproven.
BTW, what would you think about someone whose life revolves around pretending is a statistics expert, yet does not know that "correlation" is an actual *quantitative* object? You can tell me your answer when you get back from a very important "business meeting"?
So saith the idiot who previously argued that correlation proves causation!!
Oh the sun must be out!!
gw bush avenged the deaths of the 3000 that perished in the 911 attacks by sending over 6000 more Americans off to die in Iraq & Afghanistan at a Tax Payer Cost of $1.7 Trillion and by doing so he created a $40 Million Dollar a year Tax Payer liability for the wounded vets health care costs.
No BIGGER example of presidential FAILURE and needless SLAUGHTER of Americans and American wealth than republican george "The Loser bush.
So is the idiotic democratic mouth suggesting that Obama has outdone Bush by just killing Muslims daily with drones?
