Hello Everyone,



It was reported to me recently that a person who has intolerance/reaction to pasteurized milk seems to be fine with unpasteurized milk. Has anyone a more plausible explanation for this other than the possible connection with the use and non-use of antibiotics?



Thanks,

gcse-fhp

Dear gcse-fhp,

I would not trust the report you have received and are asking about. Its information is at best misleading, at worst outright incorrect and produced with the intention to influence the discussion about pasteurization of milk, which is strongly opposed by some. There are some popular urban myths associated with raw milk consumption.

The constituents of milk (proteins) that cause allergic reactions or intolerances are present in raw milk. Pasteurization could (be extremely careful with this) lead to a denaturation of milk protein, which causes a certain degree of milk intolerances and might therefore be better tolerated by people who suffer from a milk protein intolerance. People who are allergic to milk, however, MUST avoid milk from animals. An allergic reaction to milk can cause an anaphylactic reaction which may result in death. Advising milk allergy sufferers to consume raw milk is, in my opinion, negligent of this fact and has the potential to cause disaster!

Here's Wikipedia's article on Milk allergy: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Milk_allergy , which may give you a little more insight into the problem.

The following link might help to understand the U.S. debate on raw milk: http://en.wikipedia....ectious_disease

Th FDA as issued the following information, which also may be helpful: http://www.fda.gov/F...y/ucm247991.htm

Again: If you want to advise anybody professionally about raw milk consumption and allergies, be extremely cautious. If you suffer from milk allergy, I discourage you from following the advice you got.

Regards,

MKRMS
