Baby, I like It Raw: Mark McAfee Talks Raw Milk on Sickly Cat

If you’ve read Nourished Kitchen for any length of time, you know how I love to drink my milk raw, fresh and full of fat.  You’ve heard me wax poetic about my love of fresh cream and outline the reasons my family drinks raw milk, so when John Byrd of Sickly Cat emailed me with his recent interview with Mark McAfee of Organic Pastures in California, I simply had to share it with you.   The interview is a solid fifty minutes long, but it’s worth it.  So put the kids down for a nap, finish your supper, pour a glass of fresh raw milk and settle in for a stellar video in which Mark outlines the history pasteurization and homogenization, the benefits of raw milk, the politics of food.  He also discusses phytic acid, soybean milk and its dangers to reproductive health of both men and women.  He also discusses the difference between grainfeeding and grassfeeding, and thankfully addresses the question of why milk is an acceptable food past the age of weaning.

This is an amazing video – watch the whole thing.

    Ohhh…. LOVE IT!! I live somewhere where raw milk & milk shares are totally ILLEGAL! So frustrating.
    This video was wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

    A great interview. Pasteurization has always been kind of a fuzzy area, being hard to define, but this video simplified it enough to understand the process at a basic level. I only wish they sold raw milk here! I’d already be bringing some home to try!

    Loved the interview. Since Whole Foods stopped carrying raw milk I’ve had to search out other outlets. I found a couple of places that are less convenient but worth the effort. In addition to the health benefits, it also tastes better!

    Dear Nourished Kitchen,

    Thank you so very much for sharing this video with all of your readers…..

    This is a grass roots movement and so much of the truth about our food and especially raw milk is buried politically by industry as they defend the need of long shelf life and thereby killing our food.
