(NaturalNews) Iowa is on the verge of legalizing raw milk sales from dairy farms, and legislation has been introduced for that purpose. Raw milk is currently illegal to sell across most of the United States of America, the "land of the free" where freedom has been systematically crushed by oppressive government. Cuba doesn't outlaw raw milk. China doesn't outlaw raw milk. Even North Korea doesn't outlaw raw milk. Raw milk is legal to buy, sell and drink in Peru, Ecuador, Panama and most Central and South American countries. But in America, the FDA mandates that all milk be pasteurized, and this obscenely ignorant rule has resulted in a pandemic of milk allergies, digestive disorders, milk-caused autoimmune disorders and also the criminalization of raw dairy farmers.

Only in America is a raw milk farmer raided at gunpoint, thrown in jail, stripped of his operating cash and forced to turn over his entire inventory which is then destroyed by the government.

Consumers want to buy raw milk!

"The reason this bill is important is we have a growing constituency in Iowa who wants access to this product," Rep. Jason Schultz, R-Schleswig said in the Daily Iowan. The paper goes on to report:

Schultz, the committee chairman, said he supports the bill because if consumers can buy raw meat and raw eggs, there is no reason they shouldn't be able to buy raw milk.

The story goes on to discuss the opposition to the raw milk idea, but all such opposition is based on a foolish argument: That the world must be made sanitary in order to be safe.

For the record, I personally don't drink cow's milk. I prefer almond milk. But even though I do not personally choose to drink cow's milk, I fully support consumer choice so that those who wish to purchase this product may do so freely. (I support the principle of free choice.) By the same token, I do not drink alcohol, yet I support the freedom of others to consume alcohol if they so choose. This is the essence of freedom.

The failed arguments of raw milk opponents

The process of cooking raw milk makes it less digestible. It promotes constipation, sinus congestion and digestive disorders. That's because heat destroys the lactase enzymes, present in raw milk, which help digest lactose. If you destroy the lactase enzymes, you can't properly digest the lactose. Symptoms of this can get you labeled "lactose intolerant" when, in reality, you're just drinking cooked milk that's been nutritionally destroyed.

Even beyond that, since when did the government actually try to protect people from dangerous products, anyway? C'mon, you can buy cigarettes at the grocery store, and those cause cancer and heart disease. You can buy aspartame and MSG, yet nobody in government wants to ban those toxic chemicals in the food.

Processed meats cause huge spikes in cancer rates due to their use of sodium nitrite, a cancer-causing color additive chemical that turns meats red. Yet you don't see anybody in government talking about "saving the lives of children from cancer" caused by processed meats.

The idea that government tries to protect the people is hogwash. The entire argument against raw milk is nothing more than a monopolistic power grab by the conventional dairy industry. "Big dairy" is the force that's actually behind the criminalization of raw milk. It's no different than the AMA trying to destroy alternative medicine... or Big Pharma trying to discredit holistic herbal therapies. It's always about a monopoly, and right now there's a huge monopoly in the dairy industry.

That very same industry, by the way, now wants to secretly add aspartame to milk, yogurt and cream products, even while getting FDA approval to not list aspartame on the label. (Yes, you read that correctly: They want to change the "definition" of milk to include aspartame, thus it does not need to be listed on the label because it's not an extra ingredient anymore... it's just part of the milk!)

If the dairy industry was really worried about the safety of milk customers, why would it want to secretly add a neurotoxic chemical sweetener to many of its dairy products? Why would it petition the FDA to hide that ingredient from consumers? (And what else is the industry hiding?)

With the dairy industry, it's always about deception. It's about using the excuse of "public safety" to enforce its monopoly while actually harming its own customers.

Sterilizing all your food does not make you a healthier person

Sterile food is not necessarily healthy food! Killing everything in the food may minimize the risk of some bacteria, but it also kills the very things that make food nutritious. But since nearly all the popular food sold across America is already dead, I suppose people don't even recognize real food when they see it anymore. Real food isn't pasteurized, and it's not risk-free.

Life isn't risk-free. You take a risk when you walk outside your door. You take a huge risk driving in a car, but I don't see anyone screaming for government to ban automobiles in order to prevent the 32,000+ auto fatalities each year.

Government cannot eliminate risk in your life. Anyone who tries to use government to even attempt such a foolish thing only ends up creating a tyranny that crushes freedom and makes our lives more miserable.

I ask you this: Would you rather be FREE and live with a little bit of risk, or would you rather be sanitized by a control freak government that tells you what to eat? I would rather be free. LET ME DECIDE whether I want to drink raw milk or not, okay? Raw milk should be legal everywhere as long as it's accurately labeled and comes with a commonsense warning about the (very small) possibility of bacterial contamination.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
