I dont know about you, but I would rather see the FDA investigate those supermarkets where the deli workers piss all over the floor.

This is a complete waste of resources

This. Looking at history, milk pasteurization was one of the things that caused infant mortality to drop precipitously.

I love how they hitch their unpopular cause to the nigh-universal disdain for closing kids' lemonade stands, as if there is some real connection.

WHICH kind of "raw" milk??

The only parts of this resume of any use are the licensed massage therapist, basically of use to physical therapists and the like, and being a veteran of punk, except saying "hardcore punk" either means a disdain for modern punk (which I agree with) or some offshoot which is part of modern punk.

So basically these are a bunch of people who have gotten their correspondence course in an entry-level profession that doesn't even encompass any diagnostic or evaluatory skills, and are now claiming to be experts in a field they were never trained, certified, licensed, or evaluated in?

Seems to be par for the course for Alternative Medicine shills like this.

Joseph Goldberger's theory on pellagra contradicted commonly-held medical opinions. The work of Italian investigators as well as Goldberger's own observations in mental hospitals, orphanages, and cotton mill towns, convinced him that germs did not cause the disease. In such institutions, inmates contracted the disease, but staff never did. Goldberger knew from his years of experience working on infectious diseases that germs did not distinguish between inmates and employees. Lombroso had speculated that spoiled maize caused pellagra.

Goldberger found no evidence for that hypothesis, but diet certainly seemed the crucial factor. Shipments of food which Goldberger had requested from Washington were provided to children in two Mississippi orphanages and to inmates at the Georgia State Asylum. Results were dramatic; those fed a diet of fresh meat, milk and vegetables instead of a com-based diet recovered from pellagra. Those without the disease who ate the new diet did not contract pellagra.

Critics, many unable to part from the germ theory of pellagra, raised doubts. Goldberger hoped to squelch those reservations by demonstrating the existence of a particular substance that when removed from the diet of healthy individuals resulted in pellagra. With the cooperation of Mississippi's progressive governor, Earl Brewer, Goldberger experimented on eleven healthy volunteer prisoners at the Rankin State Prison Farm in 1915. Offered pardons in return for their participation, the volunteers ate a corn-based diet. Six of the eleven showed pellagra rashes after five months.

Expert dermatologists made the actual diagnosis of pellagra to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest on Goldberger's part. Although many scientific colleagues sang Goldberger's praises, even mentioning a Nobel nomination, others still doubted. In the pages of the Journal of the American Medical Association, critic W.J. MacNeal challenged the results. One Birmingham physician referred to the experiment as "half-baked." Still others thought the whole experiment a fraud.

Angry and frustrated, Goldberger would not give up trying to persuade his critics that pellagra was a dietary disorder, not an infectious disease. He hoped that one final dramatic experiment would convince his critics. On April 26, 1916 he injected five cubic centimeters of a pellagrin's blood into the arm of his assistant, Dr. George Wheeler. Wheeler shot six centimeters of such blood into Goldberger. Then they swabbed out the secretions of a pellagrin's nose and throat and rubbed them into their own noses and throats. They swallowed capsules containing scabs of pellagrins' rashes. Others joined what Goldberger called his "filth parties," including Mary Goldberger. None of the volunteers got pellagra. Despite Goldberger's heroic efforts, a few physicians remained staunch opponents of the dietary theory of pellagra.


Just saw the Dark Matters episode on this. Hundreds of thousands of people died because idiots and bigots were too stubborn to believe in science.

I first heard about that guy during the "pyramid" or multi-level marketing episode of Penn and Teller. The guy was having people sell a drink that would cure any illness and reverse the affects of aging.

Gary Null is America's Matthias Rath. (The german guy who convinced South Africa not to treat HIV with HAART for over ten years, rather give them megadoses of water soluable vitamins, and is arguably responsible for the death of 200,000 people.) The hilarious thing is that he almost killed himself with his own quackery - he overdosed on Vitamin D and became toxic.

I know there is supposed to be a happy scientific dogpile on unpasteurized milk, but I listened to a piece on a new study indicating dramatically less incidence of all types of allergies in children raised with unpasteurized milk, like among the Amish. There were other factors, such as exposure to grain dust and other weirdness, but still.

that may be due to them being exposed to something known as the outdoors, and not being exposed to a large number of artificial chemicals.

This. Constant exposure to a known allergen can create an immunity to it if it doesn't outright kill you. I used to be allergic to rag weed. After spending half a decade doing work in fields, I have grown almost 100% out of the allergen. Amish are exposed to the outdoors so much that they may never grow an allergy.

Huh. Still here and healthy after drinking raw milk. I would get into stats concerning fatalities from slipping in showers, choking on hot dogs, and getting killed in a car crash less than 5 miles from your home but frankly, it's the weekend, I've been drinking, and I don't give a shiat whether you drink raw milk or not.

Congratulations. You're lucky. Millions of people in the 1800s and early 1900s weren't.

That doesn't mean I have to help the process along by doing something that has no benefit, what-so-ever, over pasturized or flash-pasturized milk

Wow, here we have an issue that both liberals and conservatives should agree on--conservatives ought to back the right of individuals to form their own contractual trade agreements without government interference and liberals should be happy to finally be able to get what they feel is fresh, healthy food without fear of jack-booted thugs. Yet, we are hung up on the dude's silly resume. Can't we all just get along?

The infant mortality rate in France (where milk is unpasteurized) is half of what it is here in the USA.

Gee, I wonder if maybe other things weren't going on around the time we started pasteurizing milk here so that Big Dairy could make more money by selling tasteless crap.
