Raw milk can make you sick

Further to the story below about that raw milk scofflaw in Australia, Dr. Doug Powell has posted this information on his website:

The number of US outbreaks caused by nonpasteurized milk increased from 30 during 2007-2009 to 51 during 2010-2012. Most outbreaks were caused by Campylobacter spp. (77%) and by nonpasteurized milk purchased from states in which nonpasteurized milk sale was legal (81%). 

Regulations to prevent distribution of nonpasteurized milk should be enforced.
