Raw Milk Causes Most Illness From Dairy Products: CDC
Date:2/21/2012

TUESDAY, Feb. 21 (HealthDay News) -- Raw, or unpasteurized, milk causes 150 times more dairy product-related disease outbreaks than pasteurized milk. And states where the sale of raw milk is legal have twice as many outbreaks as states where it is illegal, according to a new U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study.

Unless milk is pasteurized -- heated to kill harmful bacteria -- bacteria can accumulate in collected milk, multiply and cause illness, the researchers said.

The study found that 13 percent of patients in raw milk outbreaks were hospitalized, compared with 1 percent of those made ill by pasteurized milk products. This may be because raw milk outbreaks were all caused by bacteria, such as E. coli O157, that tend to provoke more severe illness, according to the study.

On the other hand, pasteurized milk and cheese outbreaks were often caused by milder infections, such as norovirus and Staphylococcus aureus.

Fifty-five of the outbreaks reviewed occurred in the 21 states where it was
