(NaturalNews) A single glass of pasteurized milk can contain a toxic chemical cocktail of 20 painkillers, antibiotics, and growth hormones, new research has shown. Using a highly sensitive test, scientists found drug-related chemicals used to treat human illness not only in cow milk, but in goat and human breast milk as well. Among the chemicals were those found in painkillers and other anti-inflammatory drugs. Researchers theorize that some of the drugs and hormones observed are a result of growth hormones administered to cattle, as well as food contamination on the farm.

The Spanish-Moroccan team analysed 20 samples of cow's milk bought in Spain and Morocco, with the team's breakdown published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. In addition to containing drug-related chemicals such as niflumic acid, mefenamic acid and ketoprofen, the milk studied was found to contain the hormone 17-beta-estradiol. A form of the sex hormone oestrogen, the hormone was detected at three millionths of a gram in every kilogram of milk. Compared to niflumic acid, which was detected at less than one millionth of a gram per kilogram of milk, 17-beta-estradiol was found to have a much larger presence in the milk studied. Similar to the estrogen-mimicking bisphenol A (BPA), which has been found in a majority of plastic water bottles and food cans worldwide, 17-beta-estradiol can negatively impact the male hormonal balance in a way that can lead to unknown long-term consequences.

Farmers, who do not inject their livestock with growth hormones or feed them with produce that has been sprayed with pesticides or genetically modified organisms, will yield much higher quality milk. Organic raw milk has been tied to a number of health benefits due to its role as a balanced food rich in vitamins and protein. Raw milk contains all 20 of the standard amino acids, which are considered to be the very building blocks of life. It also contains a significant amount of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), an omega-6 fatty acid that has ties to increased fat loss and to improved metabolic function. The pasteurization process eliminates many of the nutrients that make raw milk a valued health food, virtually destroying the nutritional integrity of the drink.

Unfortunately, there is currently a war against raw milk by the FDA and other organizations. From arresting those who sell raw milk to shutting down entire clubs dedicated to raw milk, the FDA has been on a tireless crusade against raw milk and its advocates. Legal action has been taken, however, that may pave the way for raw milk to become more publicly available. The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) recently launched a lawsuit against the FDA for its ban on interstate sales of raw milk. The lawsuit challenges the FDA on the premise that the ban goes against the United States Constitution. In an outlandishly-authoritarian response, the FDA stated, "There is no 'deeply rooted' historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds." Despite the crackdown on raw milk, its benefits cannot be suppressed. As more health conscious individuals seek refuge from drug-laden pasteurized milk, free access to raw milk will become a mainstream issue.
