(NaturalNews) Demand for raw milk is off the charts all across the country, which is presumably why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conveniently decided to release a new raw milk hit-piece recently, which was carefully designed to scare people away from drinking it. Filled with lies, distortions, and blatant data manipulations, this so-called study is now being used as a propaganda tool to brainwash doctors, as Medscape, a popular information resource for physicians, is offering the medical community continuing education credits (CMEs) for reading the article and taking a short test.

In case you missed it, Adam J. Langer from the CDC and several colleagues recently dredged up some data from between 1993 and 2006 that they used to claim that raw milk, also known as fresh milk, is 150 times more likely to cause a food-borne illness outbreak than pasteurized milk. As usual, the data was selectively cherry-picked, massaged, and deliberately crafted in such a way as to vilify raw milk and make it out to be a type of dangerous poison, all under the guise of science.

But as has been pointed out by David E. Gumpert on his blog The Complete Patient, data from the CDC study when interpreted correctly actually shows that raw milk is responsible for a mere 0.5 percent of all food-borne illness outbreaks on average, the vast majority of which involve raw milk and raw milk products bootlegged from filthy factory farms. In reality, there are only between 25 and 175 reported illnesses every year that may be related to raw milk.

Considering the CDC's estimate that three percent of the U.S. population drinks raw milk, this number is extremely low, and actually shows how safe raw milk really is. The current U.S. population is just under 312 million people as of this writing, which means that nearly ten million people in America drink raw milk. This means that as little as 0.00025 percent, or twenty-five thousandths of one percent, of all raw milk drinkers will develop an illness that may be related to the consumption of raw milk.

The CDC's data also selectively avoids telling the truth about the number of people who have been sickened by pasteurized milk and milk products throughout the past several decades. While only 1,571 illnesses over the 14-year period included in the study were attributed to raw milk consumption, while 2,842 were attributed to pasteurized milk.

And mind you, the CDC purposely chose some of the best years for pasteurized milk. In the 1980s, for example, there were more than 216,000 known illnesses associated with the consumption of pasteurized milk. And in 2007 alone, which was outside the CDC's study period, there were three deaths associated with the consumption of pasteurized milk, and nearly 100 deaths total from pasteurized milk and milk products since 1973. Meanwhile, despite what some reports may say, there has not been a single confirmed death caused by raw milk in the 38-or-so years since data first began being collected.

CDC indoctrinating mainstream medical system with anti-raw milk junk science

None of this information can be found in any of the mainstream media reports on the CDC study, which have all blindly accepted the agency's clear bias against raw milk as if it is scientific fact. And yet such myths about the so-called dangers of raw milk are being actively perpetrated on the medical community via Medscape, which is pushing doctors to gain their much-needed CME credits by drinking this federal government Kool-Aid, so to speak, which has presumably also been pasteurized.
