The food regulations people are scaremongering again!
A meeting of ministers responsible for food standards, known as the Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation, was held in New Zealand last week, with ministers citing their concern about consumption of unpasteurised (raw) cow’s milk that is sold as ‘bath milk’.
“People who consume raw milk are at an increased risk of infection causing severe illness and potentially death,” the ministers said in a communique released after the forum.
They could have said “People who consume raw carrots are at an increased risk of infection causing severe illness and potentially death.” Technically true.
They could equally have said “People who consume raw milk are at a reduced risk of developing allergies.” Technically true.
