  1. The beauty of this survey is that it shows so many people are willing to go outside the mainstream, outside their doctors & pharma to find answers to their health problems.
    Typical “science” (for lack of a better term) and intrusive laws do not stop people from searching where their health is concerned.
    More & more people’s b.s. meters are going off from the flood of nonsense we’re bombarded with. I find it refreshing!

  2. Great survey and good to see so many responses.

  3. We are now starting to see television commercials and the like promiting live cultures and probiotics. The big companies know the health benefits of raw milk and that our mission is unstoppable. I am sure they are behind the protest against raw milk sales. I do not have anymore gastrointestenal acid reflux after drinking raw milk and related raw products.

    if only people were educated on how many health benefits there are to raw milk more people would be using it no matter what the cost!
