Ha­rass­ment of raw milk ad­vo­cate

The Beacon Herald - - OPINION -

It dis­tresses me that On­tario raw milk ad­vo­cate Michael Sch­midt has been end­lessly ha­rassed and dragged through the courts and even im­pris­oned for pro­vid­ing peo­ple with a healthy al­ter­na­tive to store-bought, pas­teur­ized and ho­mog­e­nized (i.e. de­na­tured) milk.

Nat­u­ral, raw, un­treated milk from healthy cows or goats is one of the best foods known to man and has been safely used in myr­iad ways for thou­sands of years.

If peo­ple want to drink raw milk, their ac­cess to it should not be ham­pered by the opin­ions of so-called “gov­ern­ment ex­perts” who have likely never seen the in­side of a barn, much less milked a cow.

Our gov­ern­ment per­mits the sale of count­less foods and drinks con­tain­ing as­par­tame, an in­gre­di­ent that has ex­ten­sive neg­a­tive health ef­fects and, in fact, pre­cip­i­tates a crav­ing for car­bo­hy­drates that re­sults in weight gain.

A gov­ern­ment like this, which is un­able to dis­tin­guish be­tween healthy and un­healthy food, should be turfed for this rea­son alone.
