Is Raw Milk Getting a "Raw" Deal?

The FDA says it's dangerous. Selling it is illegal. So why does an avid band of devotees swear by the virtues of unpasteurized milk?

Advocates say it's better nutritionally because vitamins and natural enzymes have not been destroyed by heat. The FDA says raw milk advocates ignore science and put their faith in dubious anecdotes about its supposed health benefits.

Raw milk comes straight from the cow, goat, or sheep. It has not been pasteurized, homogenized, or altered in any way. Goat and sheep milk are naturally homogenized.
