track_boi saidPasteurization fucks milk up. still deecent for ur goals tho.
decent bioavailability of nutrients and best of all, its wicked cheap.
if u can get ur hands on raw milk, eat that shit for breakfast lunch and dinner!
This is such a bad idea. There's a reason we started pasteurizing milk, folks, and it has to do with the loads of bacteria that are present in raw milk. While I generally think Americans have an obsession with germs that is downright unhealthy, I would not extend that to drinking raw milk just as I would not extend it to eating raw meat. There are some nasty bacteria that can exist in raw milk that pasteurization gets rid of.
That being said, if you're worried about pasteurization--and more likely you're worried about ultra-pasteurization--get raw milk and pasteurize it yourself at home using a slow heating method so that you get rid of the nasty bacteria but limit the amount of nutrients destroyed.
IMO: we should all drink raw milk over pasturised milk
sure there are ' loads of bacteria that are present in raw milk." and if you can get get good milk all of that bacteria is good for you...(for those of you who arnt aware... good bacteria is why ur alieve and bad bacteria can make you sick slash some arcticle in the obitz)
but i'd rather be sucking straight from bessies tits than eat cooked ground beef found at walmart (keep in mind the bessie im talking about isnt a 6'2'' hung dark jacked stud..... nor is it a cow you'd find at your average farm today... im talking organic free range cattle than isnt grain fed)
the reaston why Louis Pasteur and Claude Bernard desided to do what they did was cuz people died from shitty bacteria... yay for pasteurisation...kinda
but let me put it this way: healthy cows/goats/what ever mamal floats ur boat will produce better milk(that doesnt require pasturisation) than you can get at the store.
my defenition of better means that you get better protein, better absorbtion of nutrients, GOOD FATS! and something you dont usually find in a grocery store... enzymes! (also found in raw meat which should also be eaten btw)
I say if you can get ur hands on some local source of raw milk... JUMP ON IT!
but then again consider the source... just some 20 year old kid cooped up in canada that reads random net arcticles for fun.... just throwin shit out there.
