Community Safety Ban 'Killer Milk' Raw Milk Unpasteurised Milk Cosmetic Mik Bath Milk The Age Dec 15th 2014
Drinking raw milk has no nutritional benefit ("'Bath milk' recall in wake of child's death", 13/12).
Nutrient losses during pasteurisation and homogenisation are negligible.
Moreover, these processes are essential to destroy bacteria and inactivate enzymes as well as ensure the cream separates and does not rise to the top.
Drinking raw milk not only bestows a health risk, there is also no therapeutic benefit in doing so. The government would be right to ban its use.
