RAW goat milk problems *Helpingyou

Helpingyou,
How do you prevent yourself from getting very prevalent viruses found in raw goat milk? See below


CAEV is a monocyte/macrophage-tropic virus with worldwide distribution. At least 65 percent of goats carry the virus; some 85 percent of goat herds are infected. About 40 percent of infected animals develop symptoms of arthritis, mastitis (breast inflammation), and/or encephalitis.

Human infection, which is non-pathogenic, occurs mainly through ingestion of raw goat milk.

CAEV variants capable of infecting humans were first detected in people with mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD), an immune deficiency with clinical features similar to those of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). But CAEV is not etiologically linked to MCTD, and human-infecting variants (h- CAEV) have been isolated from healthy people, predominantly of Mexican descent.

h-CAEV is endemic in Mexico; 24 to 39 percent of children with Mexican parents are seropositive for CAEV.

DNA analysis shows that h-CAEV is similar to goat CAEV and is not a distinct lentivirus. h-CAEV can be passed in culture to human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) via plasma from infected individuals.

This is news to me. People have been consuming raw goat milk for thousands of years with no problems. The culturing process eliminates what little risk exists. Goats are the cleanist and healthiest domesticated animals on earth! Where did you get this info?

I am drinking about half a litre to a litre of goats milk a day. cant get enough of the stuff! Its yum! Is this too much and could i be setting myself up for a possible allergy from consuming it everyday for the past fortnight.

Is the calcium content for goats milk equivalent to cows milk?

Thanks, goatee.

Does pastuerization kill viruses?

The calcium in raw goat milk is absorbed many times greater than that of cows milk, especially if it is cultured first.

Personally, I don't believe that consuming a food over and over again will cause an allergy. If you are consistantly breaking down your foods and clearing your bloodstream of antibodies, allergies cannot form. This means eating more raw foods, and having at least SOME raw or lactofermented foods with each meal and ensuring adequate supplemental digestive enzymes during cooked meals

Hi Walt,

The answer is no. Pastuerization does not kill ALL pathogens in milk and in fact, can make the remaining pathogens more lethal because the natural balance/environment of the milk has been altered. Raw milk (that has been cultured) naturally removes these pathogens if they exist. Also, farms that sell raw milk also tend to feed their animals grass (avoiding soy and grains). This makes the animals more immune to pathogens in the first place. This has been written about many times by Dr. Bernard jensen and Dr. Norman Walker. Take Care

Thanks, HY.

That is what I thought too! That is why I asked the question. It was a sort of facetious question.

Namaste`

Walt
