It’s interesting how this raw milk and RB51 exposure has blown up in the media. So let’s get some facts out there….it’s not the raw milk…it’s the RB51 vaccine that’s given to cattle that’s become the problem. Read on…
“RB51, according to CDC, is a weakened strain of Brucella abortus bacteria used to vaccinate young female cattle. Intensive vaccination campaigns have nearly eradicated B. abortus, which can cause abortions in cattle. The bovine vaccine reduces the risk of people contracting brucellosis from infected cows. However, in rare cases, vaccinated cows can shed RB51 in their milk. The only way to avoid this potential exposure to RB51 is to drink pasteurized milk. The heat of pasteurization kills RB51, other types of Brucella, and a variety of other disease-causing bacteria.”
The only other way would be to stop the RB51 vaccines which ironically, Pennsylvania (where the farm is located) was already considering. See David Gumpert’s post.
