Pasteurization is the process of heating milk to kill microorganisms. Typically milk is held at 161 degrees for 15 seconds, a process called flash pasteurization. Under a 1987 federal law, products made from unpasteurized milk may not be sold or traded across state borders.

Rep. Thomas Massie, R Ky., recently introduced two bills: The first would end the interstate ban on raw milk sales, and the second would allow interstate transport between states where raw milk is currently legal.

"With the natural food movement, there are a lot of claims that are anecdotal and not substantiated, so I wanted to prove in a scientifically rigorous way if there is a benefit to raw milk in these people's symptoms," Gardner said. "At the end, there really wasn't a hint of a benefit with raw milk vs. pasteurized."

Fallon Morell said the results simply don't hold up.

Christopher Gardner, a researcher at Stanford University, decided to find out if there really was any effect on lactose intolerance from drinking raw milk. His study was partially funded by the Weston A. Price Foundation, in hopes of getting scientific data to back up what the foundation was hearing from raw milk drinkers, according to Fallon Morell.

But Bill Marler, a Seattle attorney specializing in food safety issues, said he's handled two dozen cases involving illness from raw milk, and the majority involve parents who believed in the health benefits of raw milk.

Much of the information on raw milk is based on anecdotal accounts of its benefits. Price Foundation, says that in addition to helping grow children's nervous systems, raw milk produces bacteria that help break down lactose, making it easier to digest for people with lactose intolerance.

in from tuberculosis, to salmonella and E. coli, it's a breeding ground for illness," Mahon said. "It's just not worth it."

"It's a high risk product, and in most of my cases I'm representing the most vulnerable in society, whether that's the little kids or elderly people with immune compromise situations," said Marler.

The study published in March in the Annals of Family Medicine, gave 16 people with lactose intolerance three different types of milk soy, raw or pasteurized each over eight day periods. The amounts of milk increased by 4 ounces each day, and the participants gave detailed accounts of their symptoms, which were mostly gas, diarrhea, bloating and cramps.

But advocates say the health benefits outweigh the negatives, and people should have the right to choose what they want to eat or drink.

"We have thousands of testimonies from people who can't drink pasteurized milk but have no problem with raw milk," Fallon Morell said. "With such a small sampling size over such a short period, saying it's proven that raw milk is not good for Nike Tech Fleece Crew Women's

"It's grossly unfair for farmers in states where it is illegal to sell raw Nike Sweatshirt Black milk," Fallon Morell said. "It doesn't mean people will stop drinking it. It just means those farmers cannot profit from the enthusiasm for raw milk."

The foundation fights for the legal sale of unpasteurized milk and a ban on soy based formulas for infants, based on the theories of Weston Price, a 20th century Cleveland dentist, believing that pasteurizing milk destroys vitamins and damages health giving enzymes in milk.
