Yeah, the CDC did cherry pick and include at least one HUGE error. They listed a severe outbreak due to improper pasteurization of milk as raw. This milk was not supposed to be consumed as raw, was never sold as raw, it was not properly pasteurized and got several people sick. I believe that milk was made into cheese but will have to go back and check for certain. The year prior to the CDC's start of this study, 1985, 16,000 people got sick from pasteurized milk. Check it out, it is their own data.

In other words, 40% of the disease outbreaks from dairy come from pasteurized milk. That's huge! You can get sick from dairy even if it is pasteurized. SO... maybe whatever it was in the pasteurized milk that made people sick was also the problem with the raw milk, and the pasteurization was not the relevant factor. There is a lot of missing information. We should have the freedom to make the milk choice for ourselves.
