For a while now, I've been discussing raw milk with my doctor friends, my nutrition/organic!freak friends, friends who own a farm (or at the very least a cow or two) and get their own fresh, raw milk to drink, as well as anyone in my parents' generation - that is, an immigrant from Pakistan or India who drank nothing but raw buffalo milk since childhood (when it was available, and even though it was watered down).

I liked this book because:

*The author's sense of humor

Good information but could have been condensed to about a 1/4 of the size... alot of repeating information...boring!!!!!!!
