Science Is Raw Milk Healthier?

Nipper came in a little while ago and gave us a demonstration of his new baby’s “milk drunk” face. It reminded me of this week’s Dear Science column about the benefits and drawbacks of drinking raw milk.
Some people say that drinking raw milk is better for you, but Science claims that humans don’t really benefit from drinking the milk of other species raw.
There are no health benefits in drinking raw milk—the nutrients easily survive the heating. Only breast milk for a baby is better raw, health-wise, so the white blood cells are allowed to live and do their job.
He also lays out some of the dangers, which don’t sound fun at all.
In this week’s Dear Science podcast he discusses the matter at more length and experimentally drinks some raw goat milk.
