Farmageddon

I’ve been seeing more in the news lately about the right to sell and consume raw dairy products, and the resulting arguments over the benefits vs. dangers to your health. In this documentary several farmers share their stories about their struggles to sell raw dairy products. These small farms, co-ops, and CSAs have been harassed and raided by police and government officials, having their products deemed unsafe for human consumption and seized. Consumers also share information about the roadblocks they have encountered trying to purchase raw milk, yogurts, and cheeses, as well as the health benefits they have seen in themselves or their families that have prompted them to fight for the right to purchase and consume these products. And the FDA’s stance regarding the consumer’s rights to these products? This pretty much sums it up: “There is no generalized right to bodily and physical health.”
