Raw Milk Event
EVENT: Saturday, April 17, 2010 from 2:00–4:00pm FREE (Please RSVP to guarantee enough samples)
Build and nourish your immune system by drinking raw milk. "Share the Secret" is an exciting Raw Milk educational outreach program provided free to the public by Organic Pastures Dairy Company and its founder Mark McAfee. "Share the Secret" combines a colorful Powerpoint presentation, free raw milk samples and high-energy speaking...to enlighten and inform. Armed with the truth, your health will never be the same again. Join the 50,000 raw milk consumers in California that have made this choice and never looked back.
Some of the topics Mark will cover include:
• The history of why milk is pasteurized.
• The history of the safety of grass-fed natural milk.
• Testing standards for CA raw milk.
• Differences between pasteurized milk and raw milk.
• Why raw milk does not cause lactose intolerance and pasteurized milk does.
• The status of raw milk in other states.
• Weston A. Price and his studies of peoples and their diets around the world.
• Environment and treatment of the cows. (You can visit them in Fresno.)
• How to prevent most immune-related diseases using biodiversity in your foods and raw milk.
Raw milk is extremely nutritious. Your body can more readily utilize all of the nutrients available in this milk. The enzymes and protein are 100% available, plus all 22 amino acids. All 18 fatty acids are metabolically available. Vitamins and minerals are all 100% metabolically available. Great for children and adults alike.
Come with your questions. This is a free event. Mark will be bringing samples for all of us, so he needs a headcount in advance. Please call or e-mail to reserve a space TODAY.
Donations always welcome.
