Below is from the Organic Consumers Association who works to protect and educate consumers in regards to food or in reality, what is called food. Please get involved and let your voices be heard!
It is horrible that because of men’s pride and greed, that what GOD created for us to enjoy is not legal for sale in probably most of the USA! Raw milk has been used by people since the beginning of creation but because of bacteria created through farmers feeding cows what their bodies do not digest to make fattened beef, we now have diseased milk that is homogenized and pasteurized. This kills nutrients and enzymes that digest, so our bodies end up with lactose intolerance and other health issues from what is called milk but in reality is not. May GOD forgive what we do to HIM, others, creatures, and ourselves!
The health benefits of raw milk have been widely documented. Yet in many states, farmers and retail stores can’t sell it, and consumers can’t buy it.
It’s time to protect farmers from raw milk raids, and make it legal and easy for consumers to buy raw milk.
Raw milk is the only food banned in interstate commerce in the U.S. And although Congress has never passed a ban on raw milk, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has used its regulatory authority to conduct raids on, and prosecute, farmers for distributing raw milk.
Two bills slowly working their way through Congress would pave the way for farmers and consumers to sell and buy raw milk.
The Milk Freedom Act of 2014 (HR 4307) would prohibit the federal government from interfering with the interstate traffic of raw milk products, offering relief for small farmers who have been harassed, fined, or prosecuted for distributing raw milk.
The Interstate Milk Freedom Act of 2014 (HR 4308) would prevent the federal government from interfering with trade of unpasteurized natural milk or milk products between states where distribution or sale of such products is already legal.
If we want these bills to gain traction, your Congress Members need to hear from you!
