In Episode 446 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we welcome to the show two very special guests to share about the work they are doing to promote health living. First up is a mini-interview with a former guest named Adam Kosloff who has written a new e-book entitled The Low-Carber’s Survival Guide. He’ll go into further detail about why he wrote this e-book and what he hopes people will get out of it. Then in the primary interview, we’ll hear from David Gumpert talking about his fantastic book The Raw Milk Revolution: Behind America’s Emerging Battle Over Food Rights (read my review here). What you’ll quickly realize as you listen to David speak is that this ongoing debate over raw milk goes much deeper than milk!

Listen to David Gumpert describe his vantage point in the raw milk debate:

  • Why he got interested in the intersection between health and business
  • How all the raids on small farms over unpasteurized milk caught his attention
  • How he became so jaded by the actions of the Food & Drug Administration (FDA)
  • What the possible motivation is for the FDA opposing real foods like raw milk
  • The tremendous growth in the raw milk market share in recent years
  • What the pasteurization and homogenization process does to the milk
  • The extreme processing that goes into creating grocery store milk
  • Why whole milk sold in stores isn’t the same as whole raw milk from the cow
  • Why milk in stores usually comes from a mixture of 100 cows
  • The dramatic difference in the taste and look of real food
  • His interaction with the famous real foods farmer Joel Salatin
  • Why raw milk is more of a “proxy issue” for the overall food rights debate
  • Some of the most horrific stories of the raids on farms in the middle of the night
  • The outrageous comments made by judges regarding raw milk/real food rights
  • How the raw milk movement is continuing to grow despite opposition
  • The health benefits of consuming raw vs. pasteurized dairy
  • Why there is a lack of research in the United States conducted on raw milk
  • What average people can do to make a real difference with this issue
  • Why people need to get involved politically to bring about change
  • The importance of buying more food from local farmers than the grocery store
  • How raw milk cheese is the next front in the battle over raw milk

      Store milk is Franken-milk o.O

      Glad I live in Texas, where we can buy raw milk from dairies. What legislation is he referring to? And if this is something that violates the States’ rights, will it be challenged as unconstitutional? As you may well know, most of us in Texas don’t like the Feds interfering with our lives, much less our food!

      Recent legislation in Texas had a bill legalizing dairies to sell their product off the farm premises (as currently, it’s only legal to sell it at the point of production).

      “When the FDA says something is bad, it must be good.”

      Our sentiments exactly! I swear, if I didn’t know better, I think the government wants us all to be sick and reliant on maintenance medication. That’s not conspiratorial at all is it? LOL

      Next they’ll raid farmers’ markets because the vegetables and fruits aren’t grown by some standard. Just wait.

      Hearing about that guy in Georgia, I suddenly had a parody of Smokey and the Bandit in my head, and instead of hauling illegal booze across state lines, they haul raw milk.


      “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” –CS Lewis

      • It’s not just in Texas where people don’t like the Feds interfering with our lives and food. I’d say it’s just about EVERYWHERE!

      Although I am about 95 per cent Paleo, I do go through some weeks with Raw Milk and have for about 18 months, I used it much more when I was just a LOW CARBer- it is the best when strength training. I have never gotten sick on it, it tastes great- too good actually. My kids drink it- few earaches, and allergies, but we also eat very local produce too. Raw Milk diary farmers have far cleaner frams, stalls and animals then the other guys. Cleaner is better.
