Pasteurization is bastardization of Milk

We at Amrut Gir believe in drinking un-pasteurized milk for a long time.  Here is an interesting article from Loren Muldowney which supports the fact that Raw Milk is actually much better and there is no "health" reason behind pastaurized milk except "commercial interests".

[Loren holds a bachelor's degree in biochemistry and a master's degree in soils and water from Rutgers University]

Here are some excerpts:
“When mothers nurse their babies, do we make a point of saying that the babies are drinking ‘raw' mothers milk?" 
Even when produced under the most sanitary conditions, he said, it is normal for milk to contain some bacteria, and human societies have been coexisting and benefiting from these bacteria in the milk for thousands of years. Today products are marketed as containing “probiotics,” as if this is something brand new. Of course, McAfee said, various active bacteria have always been in these foods. Some of what he termed “Mother Nature’s truths about bacteria” follows:
...are earth’s oldest life forms.
...are everywhere.
...are essential for human survival.
...comprise more than 90 percent of the cells in the human body.

An case study on how Raw Milk saved life of an African Tribesman:
McAfee shared one such anecdote about Kimeli, a Maasai tribesman from east Africa who came to the United States to study at Stanford University. Kimeli grew up drinking milk (known in the U.S. as "raw milk"), but after arriving in the states got sicker and sicker and was diagnosed with severe lactose intolerance and Crohn's disease. Ultimately it was recommended that part of his colon be removed. He resisted this idea and began to drink "raw milk". His lactose intolerance somehow did not apply to this milk. For the better part of a year he drank a daily half gallon of raw whole milk. Kimeli, McAfee said, remains convinced that this food is what allowed his damaged insides to heal.
