The story is headlined: Floodgates open to raw milk?
Proponents of unpasteurized milk hope a victory in "America's Dairyland" will encourage other states to legalize sales and make it more available nationwide.
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle has indicated he will sign a bill the Legislature passed late last month allowing farms to sell raw milk directly to consumers through 2011. Although the bill is limited in scope, advocates who've worked for years promoting raw milk say legalization in Wisconsin could lead to broader acceptance nationwide.
Needless to say, many are predicting dire consequences if the consumer is allowed to purchase and consume raw milk.
To put that in perspective - one American is killed by a medically induced accident or infection every six minutes. You could graduate a clock fine enough to measure how often an American dies from the consumption of raw milk.
Maybe the government should tax raw milk, like cigarettes, and have a law against under age purchase of raw milk and the dairy farm economy would take off like big tobacco.
