Harvard Law School Food Law Society to Host a Raw Milk Debate!

As far as I know, I have never had raw milk*. However, I have heard many stories about its alleged benefits. Personally, I have never liked the pasteurized milk in the grocery stores (except in Frosted Flakes), because it just always seemed weird to drink the liquid from another animal. Nevertheless, there are numerous arguments on both the pros and cons of milk and I won't go into them here. However, the Harvard Food Law Society will host a debate where people will discuss these things. If I lived near Harvard, I would have to go check this one out.

Please note that the below press release was released by attorney Fred Pritzker (or someone representing him) and for disclosure purposes of this blog article, Pritzker is anti-raw milk.
