WHAT KIND OF
Both milk diet authors agree that the milk should be raw. Porter says:
“Boiled, sterilized or pasteurized milk, or milk artificially preserved in any way, can not be used for this treatment. The live cells in the milk must remain alive or there can be no ‘milk cure.’”
And Macfadden weighs in: “Unpasteurized milk should be secured if possible. If not, by taking orange, lemon or grapefruit juice along with it, pasteurized milk may be used.”
But one hundred years ago something that these authors took for granted is that cows were on grass-based diets. Read my article on raw milk from grass-fed cows and E. coli.
