Raw Deal: The Milk Debate Rages On

The debate over raw milk—its benefits and dangers—has been steadily gathering momentum. Yesterday, The Atlantic had this story.

As I mentioned a couple months ago, I've been doing my own experimenting. I've bought a few bottles of raw milk when available, but I don't think I have a big enough sample to determine whether or not it has any effect on my system. But one big downside for a singleton like me is that raw milk goes bad much faster than its pasteurized cousin—nothing like pouring half a bottle of $6 milk down the drain to make you experience a little angst.
