    The more government intervention we have in health care and the bigger the safety net is supposed to stretch, the less I'm inclined to agree your dangerous raw milk habit is your own business. That goes for cigs, soda pop, no seat belts, and unprotected promiscuous sex too.

      That would ignore the glaring fact it's better for you than cigarettes, better for you than milk with rBGH, and - many would and argue - better for you than pasteurized milk, BUT HOW THE HELL WOULD YOU KNOW?

      YOU'VE NEVER HAD IT.

        Poison ivy is natural, but I'd rather not drink a brew of it.

        Raw milk products, if you look at the links I gave, appear to be perhaps 50x as dangerous as pasteurized milk products. That's better than cigarettes. Better that rBGH pasteurized milk, probably not.
