JACKET COVER INFORMATION
Ron Schmid, ND, naturopathic physician, writer, teacher and farmer, has prescribed raw milk for his patients for nearly 25 years. The author of Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine, Dr Schmid is a graduate of MIT and the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. He has taught at all four American naturopathic medical schools and served as Clinic Director and Chief Medical Officer at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine.
"This fascinating and compelling book will change the way you think about milk. Dr Schmid chronicles the role of milk in the rise of civilisation and in early America, the distillery dairies, compulsory pasteurisation, the politics of milk, traditional dairying cultures and the modern dairy industry. He details the betrayal of public trust by government health officials and dissects the modern myths concerning cholesterol, animal fats and heart disease. And in the final chapters, he describes how scores of eminent scientists have documented the superiority of raw milk and its myriad health benefits.
"Raw milk is a movement whose time has come. This book will serve as a catalyst for that movement, providing consumers with the facts and inspiration they need to embrace Nature's perfect food."
