Real Milk

Murray, KY – Near the turn of the 20th century large U.S. cities were experiencing up to a 50 percent mortality rate in their children, because of bad milk. To lower the mortality rate, the U.S. government required all milk sold to consumers to be pasteurized, prohibiting the sale of raw milk. More than 100 years later a movement called the Real Milk Campaign says the milk that claimed the lives of thousands of children was a product of the times.
