05. Danger Alert: Unpasteurized Milk
Have you heard about the recent trend of drinking raw, unpasteurized milk? While some people claim that it has many health benefits and can even cure eczema, allergies, and lactose intolerance, the truth is that raw milk can be extremely harmful to your health, especially if you’re over 50 or have a weakened immune system.
Raw milk is not pasteurized, which means that it’s not heated to get rid of toxins and harmful bacteria. As a result, drinking it can increase your chances of consuming many dangerous pathogens, such as salmonella, campylobacter, and listeria. Yikes!
Milk is an excellent source of calcium and protein, which are essential for maintaining healthy bones and a well-functioning body. But, it’s important to choose pasteurized milk to ensure that it’s safe for consumption.
So, the next time you’re thinking of getting your daily dose of milk, make sure to opt for the pasteurized version. Don’t take any chances with your health!
