How is it that people can smoke themselves to death or drink their lives into oblivion, and the government makes some lame gestures at trying to say it’s bad for your health? But you dare mention “raw milk” and you have the health police on your door step and all your activities monitored!
Raw milk is a health food in its natural state – no additives, preservatives, GMOs, or other harmful ingredients – just real food that’s good for you.
Michael Schmidt in Ontario, Canada is on a hunger strike until he gets a meeting with Dalton McGuinty, the premier of Ontario, to discuss changes to the sale of raw milk, making it legal for those who choose to buy it.
This debate is about the right to make choices. In an interview, Michael Schmidt made an interesting observation, “It’s really more about the right to informed choice, so it’s largely a political issue. I’m not trying to convince everyone else to drink raw milk. I just think that people who want to should have that right. You don’t see the government banning the sale of sliced meat, even though 22 people died during the lysteria outbreak. The hypocrisy is staggering.” (Source: http://www.thegridto.com/city/people/michael-schmidt-raw-milk-activist/)
