Summary
"The Raw Milk Revolution takes readers behind the scenes of the government's tough and occasionally brutal crackdown on raw milk dairies, as seen through the eyes of milk producers, regulators, scientists, prosecutors, and consumers. Even as cases of contaminated industrial foods proliferate, state and federal agriculture officials seem intent on stamping out access to nutritionally dense, flavorful alternatives offered by small farmers. On the one side, it's a disturbing story involving dubious police tactics, questionable lab results, and marginally legal investigation techniques, with young children used as political pawns in a highly charged atmosphere of fear and retribution; on the other, it inspires by introducing us to heroes and heroines, fighting for one of the most fundamental of liberties-the right to choose our food."--BOOK JACKET
