The FRAUD of MRSA in certified raw milk

From: Philip R.

A number of people have posted about MRSA being announced in raw milk. I deleted them so that I could first make a strong statement to you all. This message is in the message board and you can discuss it there. Articles relating to this story are here:

- Independent: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/new-mrsa-superbug-strain-found-in-uk-milk-supply-8431187.html

- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2251417/MRSA-milk-Superbug-strain-cause-infections-humans-resistant-antibiotics.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

 

Be under no illusions, the timing of this press release is to manipulate the board of the FSA into banning raw milk, and it is a total SCAM.

You need to be aware of the distinction between certified raw milk and raw milk destined for pasteurization. Raw milk destined to be pasteurized can have any old crap in it and often does have, so if they didn't trot out MRSA, they could have picked any number of the things always found in low grade raw milk destined for pasteurization. The fact that health officials are stating that it is OK to milk MRSA infected cows so long as the milk is heat treated is a good reason to campaign for certified raw milk because when you drink heat treated milk, they kill those bugs but you then eat dead pathogenic bacteria, viruses, pus, etc. Not to mention that milk from a MRSA infected cow is likely very low in nutrients and high in toxins.

In contrast, raw milk certified for human consumption is tested to ensure that these things do not get in the milk. If a cow is sick enough to require antibiotics, it is not milked for raw drinking milk. In raw dairy herds the cow will be separated from the herd at the first sign of anti-bodies and its milk will be only pasteurized or, the cow dried out and possibly slaughtered. No raw dairy herd therefore uses routine antibiotics since if their herd were that sick and malnourished, they would not get a raw milk license!

Expect more fraud like this where they do not make the distinction between certified raw milk for human consumption vs raw milk destined for pasteurization.

This absurd attempt to tarnish certified raw milk is a very good reason why people must be ready to campaign both in person and in letter writing when the review comes out to ensure that these corporate tyrants do not get their way and banish raw milk from Britain.
