Children who drink raw milk rather than pasteurized milk are less likely to develop asthma and allergies, according to a new, landmark six-year study by researchers at Ludwig Maximilian University in Germany.
The study says the pasteurization destroys beneficial ingredients, including Omega 3 – which researchers believe could hold the key.
“Fresh, unprocessed cow’s milk has a higher content of Omega 3 than does pasteurized, homogenized [where it’s treated to stop the cream separating] or low-fat milk. This factor partly explains why children who consume the unprocessed product are less likely to develop asthma,” immunologist Tabea Brick, one of the study’s authors, wrote in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
