Raw Milk: Legalize, Don't Pasteurize!

Raw milk. Rheo Blair's favorite food and the one that changed his life and the lives of countless others for the better. At one time, everyone drank raw milk. But with the invention of pasteurization and its alleged safety benefits, consumption of raw milk in this country almost completely disappeared. In fact, in some states it is illegal to sell raw milk. But a growing segment of the population is clamoring for increased access to raw milk, citing its nutritional benefits and recently discovered inbuilt safety mechanisms. Opponents are skeptical of such nutritional claims and believe the safety risks of unpasteurized milk are simply too high. Now comes a debate on the matter:
