Study: Kids who drink raw milk less likely to develop allergies, asthma

A new study says that children who drink raw milk from the farm - instead of the pasteurized milk from the grocery store - are less likely to develop allergies and asthma.

Pasteurized milk, the kind we all buy in the store, is heated to kill dangerous bacteria. Going down on the farm is taking a big chance.

"So you may prevent asthma, but then you have a lot of issues...diarrhea and infections and that is a fine line you have to walk all the time," said Dr. Akhilest Chouksey of Metro.@

Doctor Chouksey believes there is enough good research here that it needs to be looked at closer. Raw milk may never be the real answer.
