Re: How raw milk became a Republican

Homogenized milk may be a health risk. I was once acquainted with the head of cardiology of a major Connecticut hospital. He suggested a correlation between the postwar introduction of homogenized milk and the later rise in coronary heart disease.

There may be something to it. Milk isn't homogenized by shaking the milk up really hard. The fat globules attract each other, reform and float to the top. They force the milk through screens with very tiny holes. The fat globules won't attract one another, if the globule size is very small.

Consider what happens in the intestine. The small fat globules may pass through the intestine wall and into the blood stream, while the larger globules might have passed through the intestine without absorption.
