Episode Notes

Like most of us growing up in America, we’ve see the Tv Ads “Milk does a body good” but after some time of drinking that stuff I came to find out that it wasn’t doing me any good because what we grew up drinking wasn’t the Real Milk but it was the pasteurized, homogenized, processed fake Junk food.

Welcome to the D show. And I'm here with Adrian. How you doing, Adrian? I'm doing great. How are you? We're at his farm. As you can see, we got these nice cows. And I want to turn you guys out to something incredible. That probably I don't know, it's been a little bit over a year. And I really got into this raw milk. Now, there's some misconceptions around it. And most people are

00:00:35--> 00:01:15

really, who drink milk? They many people have become lactose intolerant, you know, they have all these allergies. Is that from drinking raw milk or pasteurized milk? What's the difference? Not many people have no clue Can you help educate us. So that's actually how we ended up in the raw milk to begin with is my oldest daughter Emily, who owns the cows here with her younger youngest sister, Claire, she was diagnosed as lactose intolerance. So as a toddler, we went through ear infections and constipation and diarrhea and all those things, fevers, and, and then antibiotics. And so she was diagnosed with either a milk allergy or lactose intolerant. Well, a Mennonite guy that used to

00:01:15--> 00:01:32

share sheep for me, we were talking about it one day at lunch, and he said, she's not allergic to milk. She just needs raw milk. Now, I had never really heard of such a thing. And I grew up on a farm, but I didn't grow up milking cows. And so several months later, he called me and he had a heifer that

00:01:33--> 00:02:07

was about to cap. And so he made me a deal I couldn't refuse and basically guilted me into buying this discount from her. And that's precious. That's why they named it precious pastures. That was the name of our first heifer. And so when, when she kept, my wife made sure that the milk was safe for me to drink first, and then and then she and the kids would drink it. And my daughter, Emily, can drink raw milk on pasteurized and homogenized milk all day, and it doesn't give her any health problems to the contrary, it's health giving to her. So there's a lot of people that have a lot of problems.

00:02:08--> 00:02:28

That, you know, if if conventional, pasteurized homogenized milk is not working well for them. Oftentimes, raw milk will and it's, it's a misconception that, you know, the foods that we eat, don't have any influence on our, our gut bacteria, all those sorts of things, you know, that.

00:02:29--> 00:02:33

That I think, you know, I meet a lot of people that raw milk solves a lot of problems.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

This is the

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

this is the

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

take us back edge if you don't mind in time,

00:03:02--> 00:03:44

early 1900s they had the distilleries, and it was very filthy people are getting sick. And they developed this concept now of killing the bad bacterias and, and then it became a big industry now, right? And the difference between that how it started and the movement, the big raw milk movement now the difference because like I was very, very scared to you know, nervous, I thought I was gonna get sick or something. But can you let's go back in time to how this whole pasteurization process started. So you need to remember that as the what they call them, brewery dairies, that those were dairies that sprang up around breweries in the middle of pretty heavily populated areas. So they had

00:03:44--> 00:04:03

all of this brewery waste that they needed to get rid of, or sometimes it's referred to as distillers. And so cows could eat that and, and cows would produce milk on that. But a cows cows. You know, for the first 9000 10,000 years, however long the cows have been domesticated, depending on what culture you're from.

00:04:04--> 00:04:12

They've never eaten distilled grains, you know, that wasn't something that cows that ever eaten. So they were filthy conditions, the cows were not healthy.

00:04:13--> 00:04:56

You need to remember them. They also didn't have stainless steel, they didn't have you know, full tank refrigeration, they didn't, they didn't have cleanliness. And so all of those things, you can certainly in unhygenic conditions with any sort of a food product, you could certainly have problems, but but those had inherent problems that, you know, once you got away from the any unhealth in the cows, then then you certainly got healthier milk. I mean, it's, you know, so tuberculosis in cows was a real thing. I mean, there there are diseases that you have to watch out for in animals. And so you can influence that by the health of the animals but you can also just

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

through good husbandry, you know, in cleanliness and care

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

fullness and refrigeration and stainless steel and all the sort of things that we have now that they didn't have that. But I was also argue, you know, when when all of the Midwest, farm farm people went off to fight in World War One. Now these are some of the healthiest people on earth, you know that there was a reason, you know,

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

why don't why why they were, you know, so inherently healthy.

00:05:22--> 00:05:24

These cars are very friendly. See, they,

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

we gotta look.

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

So, tell us how how,

00:05:32--> 00:06:17

when you go through the pasteurization process, I mean, like the Creator has, has given us, you know, this gift of, of food and how it was intended. I mean, back before 100 years ago, there was no such thing as pasteurization was there and there was no such thing as refrigeration. So you know, if you go back, if you go back to the land flowing with milk and honey, if you go back to when they talk about in ancient writings of people eating curds, and whey, you know, they talked about sitting in eating curds, if you came, if you came onto the earth, you know, 9000 years ago, any milk that you had, especially in the Mediterranean areas, or you know, equate equitorial areas that the world

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

was was already starting to

00:06:21--> 00:07:04

turn towards sour. So, you know, you didn't drink cold milk in those temperate zones, you know, so when you ate curdled milk that's full of all sorts of bacterias like we would have in in good bacterias that we would have in yogurts and stuff that I would argue, you know, we human humans have evolved for lack of a better term at the same rate that as our agriculture has, and and milk consumption and all of the, you know, cream and whey products and all these all came up at the same time. Let's talk a little bit. Tell us Adrian what what actually the process when you pasteurize the milk, there's so many I mean, we can safely say that I mean, milk is like a superfood, you may get

00:07:04--> 00:07:34

so many nutrients and, and the vitamins and minerals and proteins. When you pasteurize it, do you destroy all that what happens in the process? Well, you can destroy them or you can make them way, way less digestible. You know that the the easiest milk to digest is if you're going to drink milk is actually warm milk milk that hasn't even been chilled yet. But then you can also collaborate there are people that collaborate that never, never refrigerate it. So it's kind of going towards Kieffer going towards yogurt.

00:07:35--> 00:07:54

So, but but pasteurizing and homogenized and they're they're both, you know, pretty harsh processes on a pretty delicate product. So, you know, all of the good bacteria, all the probiotics, all the things that, you know, we as mammals and mammals that we, you know, milk

00:07:55--> 00:08:11

that, you know, you need all of those available, fats and proteins and all those things that, you know, I would argue that the homogenization is really bad for the fat part, and that you get particles that are small enough to cause all sorts of gut problems, you know, the, the,

00:08:12--> 00:08:53

it's my opinion that, you know, these diverticulitis problems, the Crohn's problems, and all these are at least excavated by pasteurized homogenized milk, but but also all the other things in our diet that are, you know, processed to take the the goodness that, you know, nine or 10,000 years of human evolution, you know, gut bacteria and all those sorts of things that that we're missing out on. So all of a sudden, we're having to add probiotics back into our diet or or we're on antibiotics all the time. And, you know, I would argue the same thing would would take place in you know, other young mammals that you know, if they weren't if they didn't have access to raw milk as well. So,

00:08:53--> 00:09:18

isn't there enzymes also and milk that help us are just certain you know, if you take my test for people would be to find get find yourself some raw milk, put it in a glass on a counter, put it put a paper towel over to don't seal it so that it goes anaerobic and take conventional pasteurized homogenized milk, set it next to the thing the same way, your raw milk in several days will clobber

00:09:19--> 00:09:49

you but you could you could mix it back up and I've done this, you know, in two weeks, unrefrigerated and it'll occurred and you it's still tasty and digestible. Your your pasteurized homogenized milk will rock it'll putrefy because it's the enzymes that are in there that are that have been in there all along there. They were put there in the beginning to make, you know, a milk, a movable thing that we could take with us, you know, 9000 years ago before refrigeration.

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

And before you know, if you think about it, pasteurization was available 9000 years ago, right. You could have heated milk, it could have been done but they did

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

And do it because you didn't have a mail system where you had to have milk that would last for days or weeks or months.

00:10:08--> 00:10:49

You know, and you you ate is fresher food as you could. And that's, that's how now Now let me tell you about another point. If you take some of these cows, I don't see the light of day. They're they're being fed foods that they're not made to eat, you know, corn and grains and, and then they get sick, and they got to pump them on antibiotics. And if you drink that milk, that goat needs to be pasteurized, right, that will get you sick if you drink it. But I mean, the way that God Almighty intended for these animals that are that are humanely treated that are that are out, you know, eating what God intended them to eat in a good, clean environment like you have here. I mean, that

00:10:49--> 00:11:28

that's the kind of the milk that's safe. Can you talk about the difference? Oh, certainly there are there are. So cows that are milked, specifically dairy cows, they don't many of them don't see the light of day, right. And they never have grass and they don't eat much forage. So a cow. If you watch these cows, if they're not eating, or resting, or in this case, they're kind of excited to see people but when they're ruminating, that they're adjusting their body Ph. So a cow with a good sized cow will have like a 50 gallon rumen. So that's meant to have roughage, the whole idea is they've got a four chambered stomach, they're ruminants. And so that that actually buffers their system. So

00:11:28--> 00:12:10

a cow like that is has so much good bacteria on them that the bad bacteria can ever get a foothold and really take over. But but a cow. So we've we've taken cattle and everybody's heard of mad cow disease and that sort of thing. Well, those are functions of what we feed cows. So, you know, cows are cows, herbivores in general would never eat each other, right? There's omnivores. There there are you know, we're omnivores, but they're, you know, there are there are animals that we eat, that are omnivores, that would eat other meat. Cows won't do that, but but we've forced them into that situation because of cheap nutrition. So when they rendered that animals and feed them, you know it,

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

whether it's the cattle or sheep or that sort of thing.

00:12:13--> 00:12:25

You know, you're creating a situation that's unnatural, has never occurred, you know, in 10,000 years of agriculture, and it's definitely probably spoken, you know, never meant to happen, misconceptions of us.

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

Number two, Muslim women are oppressed.

00:12:32--> 00:13:14

One of the most disturbing misconceptions is the negative portrayal of women in Islam, namely, that Islam degrades and oppresses women. This misconception is due to the negative culture, and traditions that people all over the world still hold on to. Unfortunately, these traditions sometimes overshadowed Islamic teaching, and people from the outside believe that the traditions and Islam are the same when in reality, they are not. For example, woman in pre Islamic Arabia had almost no rights. They were viewed as objects and were constantly humiliated. Their purpose was nothing more than to obey men and have children for him. When a female baby was born, it was

00:13:14--> 00:13:44

considered a disgrace to the family and they were often buried alive. Islam brought positive change to Arabia, people who embraced Islam had to let go of these harmful cultural practices and woman were finally given the rights and respect that they deserved. For every male convert to Islam today, for females convert to the religion, nobody will convert to religion that oppresses them. The truth is that Islam provides a woman with their right they deserve to be successful in this world, and the next.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

Number one, Muslims are terrorists and extremists.

00:13:50--> 00:14:33

This is by far the biggest misconception of Islam, given unfairly by stereotyping in the public image that the media gives, as anyone else. Notice how when a specific group of people attacked another group of people, it is labeled as a hate crime. But when a Muslim opens fire on anybody, it's quickly regarded as terrorism. Many political dictators and officials or extremist groups use the name of Islam as a strategy to gain followers and attention when many of their practices go against the teachings of Islam. Islam does not support terrorism under any circumstances. Terrorism goes against every principle in Islam. And if a Muslim engages in terrorism, he is not following

00:14:33--> 00:14:47

Islam. Islam prohibits Muslims from attacking or killing any innocent person, Allah says, ever kills a person and justly It is as though he has killed all mankind. on chapter five, verse 32,

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

tell us one more thing, big business. I mean, after everything the whole process got started. We see that, you know, it's this is actually you know, bad for business, that the raw

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

It starts to grow. But it is growing, people are waking and seeing that this is not how the creator intended for it to be pasteurized, and you kill all the good stuff in there. But raw milk the way that it was, for us, that's the way we want it. And there's a movement now, right? Why I hope there's a movement, it's it's, it's, my argument has been, and I've talked to every every politician I could find in the state of Illinois and all the health department feel like it's fine. But you know, the trouble with it with an issue like raw milk is your small farmers.

00:15:31--> 00:16:03

And you're only essentially dealing with people who really seek out their own food. So who take that responsibility. The difficulty on this issue in Illinois has been we have a two party system in our, in our government, and one party loves big business, and the other party loves big government, and neither of them love individuals, you know, supplying a public with something that they want, but you know, without a good without an in between, like I meet the most fascinating people, the best educated people,

00:16:04--> 00:16:11

the most self aware people that you'd ever meet, selling raw milk. It's been it's been an epiphany for me that, that, you know.

00:16:14--> 00:16:56

And the difficulty is that, you know, people that are the most passionate about what they eat and what they put in their body have the most trouble getting getting the government to acquiesce to let them do that. And that's, that's a really, that's a big frustration for me. It's a huge I'm a fifth generation, Illinois farmer. And, you know, my daughters would love to keep their cows and continue to do this. But you know, it's, it's kind of a race to see, you know, who, who wins out, I guess, here with Adrian, tell us if people want to visit you your daughter's website, how can they are they could they come out and see you here at the farm. So unfortunately, according to my wife, where we

00:16:56--> 00:17:16

milk cows twice a day, every day so so that farmers that 387, South Malta road in Rochelle, Illinois, I would ask you to call ahead and then also visit my daughter's website. It's precious pastures.com precious again, was the old original cow and she was just a pearl of an animal. Just a joy to have around. So

00:17:17--> 00:17:20
