What is Raw Milk or Unpasteurized Milk?

First of all, what is pasteurized milk? Pasteurization is the process of heating milk up to a specific temperature to kill harmful bacteria and other unwanted materials in the milk. Remember, these bacteria may be responsible for diseases like Typhoid, Cholera, Tuberculosis, Listeriosis, Diphtheria, etc. It is this pasteurized milk we use for household purposes. On the other hand, raw milk or unpasteurized milk is the milk that is directly obtained from cow, goat, sheep, etc. which has not been pasteurized. So raw milk and products made of raw milk (Soft cheeses, yogurt, pudding, Icecream, etc.) are way too dangerous.


Raw milk may cause foodborne diseases. Raw milk may have bacteria like Salmonella, E.coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, etc. These bacteria are responsible for diseases like Typhoid, Cholera, Listeriosis, Tuberculosis, Diphtheria, etc. Hence, if anyone consumes raw milk or products made of raw milk, he/she may get affected by these diseases. Illness in people with good stamina and calibre will get cured without troubling much. But these diseases can be critical in people with less immunity, old people, children, and pregnant women. Raw milk may also cause asthma and allergies. So always have pasteurized milk. If you are showing any symptoms of food poisoning, don’t be late to meet a doctor. Hospitals in Kozhikode provide better treatment for foodborne diseases.


Milk contains valuable calcium and proteins that are vital for our body. But to attain those proteins, don’t go for raw milk. Always consume pasteurized milk. After reading this article, you would have understood how critical raw milk is. So even by knowing this fact, if you are still consuming raw milk, in simple words you are inviting serious health issues. Hence you must avoid raw milk. Also, if you are buying milk or milk products, don’t forget to check whether it is pasteurized or not. Remember, health is wealth. If you destroy that wealth, your life will be a horror ride.
