Milk, Can it harm you? "Research"

(Based on research still being under way)
Milk Can it harm you?
Well Yes, would be the short anther! How ever not because of TB nor due to expiry dates being over looked.
No the problem is one that has not been proven yet, at least not a 100%, and since Science is what it is, slow and meticulous, it will take some more time before we know forsure. However it seems that there may be a relations with Jones or Johns disease and the Human form of Crone Disease. Basically a wasting disease where the digestive system can no longer absorb Food or nutrients followed by severe diuria and bleeding until one does eventually dies!
Now some like the University of Guelph that is doing some serious research to that regard as well as some other Universities and Scientist believe that there is not only a relation but that the illness is past on to Humans true the Milk from Cows and other Dairy Animals.
The Worth would be of course raw milk consumption increasing the risks immensely regardless of the outcome of the still open research. Especially since Pasteurisation, it self does not seem to always kill this illness. In animals we know for certain that the disease is past on true the Milk and true blood from the infected Animal to it’s young. Why many Dairy Farmers take the young away from their Mothers right after birth in order to minimize the risk should the Mother be a carrier. We know that 80% and more Farms are already struggling with Jones disease and that as many as 20% of all Bovines and ovine are carrier of Jones disease today. Why the Dairy Industry wants to keep a lid on the hole research since it could have worth consequences than Mad Cow disease did for the Industry over the last 10 years!
The main problem being we do not know for certain, how everwe do very strongly suspect that Jones disease can be past on to Humans true the Milk and blood and we suspect that Jones and Crones disease are one and the same.
Now with out panicking we should at least be cautious and either avoid Milk all together until we know for certain, or take additional precautions such as boiling the Milk and freezing it as well before consuming it. Even though it may already have been pasteurised. Alternatively, buy your milk right from the Farmer and make sure you know him or her and their Lifestock as well! Crone disease is a very serious illness that no one should take lightly! Now do I still have milk in my Coffee? Yes of course, never the less I do Freeze my milk and boil it as well. Just to be on the safe side so to speak!
Now some may ask how would they get the Calcium needed on a day to day base if they where to stop drinking Milk?! Many cultures true out the World do not drink milk and yet do not lack calcium either, mainly because there are many substitutes rich in calcium and who's calcium is actually better absorbed by the Human Body than the one fund in Milk. Brocolly for instance has lots of Calcium so does Tofu and crustaces, who's calcium is easier to absorb for the Human body than the one fun in milk.
However Milk is still safe if pasteurised and well handled, even safer would be aged cheeses that contain lots of calcium!
