The battle over raw milk has the potential to bring together many people in our heavily divided country. From "Latte drinking liberals" to "gun toting country folks" and plenty of other "average Americans" are outraged by the recent SWAT-like raids happening all over the country. A growing number of people believe in our access to unpasteurized dairy products.
Large corporations consistently get away with over-saturating the food supply with chemicals additives, HFCS, artificial sweeteners, and other poor quality ingredients. These foods are harmful to human health, yet people still have the choice to feed their families this "food".
There is an even greater irony, considering that Cargill recently recalled 36 million pounds of tainted turkey, which actually killed someone and made many more people ill. I seriously doubt that they will spend a moment in jail, as is the case with the Rawesome buying club, who never even had anyone get sick from their products.
Now, some will say that Rawesome was a business that was operating without a license, but they are not a retail store and the same rules don't apply. Every member of Rawesome has to sign a liability waiver before they can officially join.
As people get more connected to where their food comes from and how it's processed, I suspect the support for this movement will continue to grow. If the government is really concerened, then they can slap a warning label on raw products as they do with tobacco or alcohol. Drink at your own risk.
