Vote no on banning sale of raw milk

Published: Thursday, April 3, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

I will soon take my boards to be a registered dietitian, and I drink raw milk. Not only have I never once been sick from it, but I have seen my farmer in action as her production methods are fully transparent.

Therefore, I trust her product where I can’t trust the supermarket. 

Furthermore, this mode of production is sustainable and naturally holds the farmer accountable. The time of chalking milk to hide the unhealthy color has passed, and I am always confident in my raw milk. If the cows are healthy, then so is the milk.

Please don’t take away my right to drink it.

No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
