Before pasteurization, humans were commonly infected with other organisms from cows, such as brucellosis, tuberculosis, typhoid and listeriosis. But milk can also pick up organisms anywhere on its travels from cow to kitchen.
Raw milk continues to be associated with outbreaks each year. It has recently been linked to campylobacter, salmonella, yersinia, Q fever, toxoplasmosis and hemorrhagic colitis, to name a few. Why on Earth would we subject ourselves to such unnecessary risk when we've already found the solution?
