Dr. Ron Schmid, N.D. offers a classic paper on facts concerning raw milk: its health benefits, negative health effects of pasteurization and homogenation, as well as an eye-opening history of milk and the politics of its control.
I would like to introduce Dr. Schmid to WFN Journal readers, and hopefully he will be a contributor to the Journal. Dr. Schmid is an honorary advisor to The Weston A. Price Foundation. Here is his biosketch:
Dr. Ron Schmid has practiced as a licensed naturopathic physician in Connecticut since graduating from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1981. A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as well, he has taught courses and seminars in nutrition at all four of the accredited naturopathic medical schools in the United States. He served for a year as the first Clinic Director and Chief Medical Officer at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine.
