    Reading the article on raw milk indicates a conflation of pasteurization and homogenization. Pasteurization is done for safety and health reasons. (I know someone who got brucellosis from raw milk.) Homogenization is done for other reasons (mostly stability of product). I loved Trader Joe’s pasteurized not homogenized milk and wish I could find it here. However, I would never drink unpasteurized milk. I have seen dairy farms up close and personal, milked a few cows in my time, and handled the product. No way I’m drinking that stuff. Now if we can just get real butter milk in the stores…
