Remember that misinformed video by attorney Bill Marler I posted last week with the post The New Phase of the War Against Raw Milk?
Well, Mr. Marler will be debating the President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, Sally Fallon Morell today on NPR.
Here are the details for listening live or listening later if you miss it at 12:06 pm EDT:
Today on NPR Sally Fallon Morell will be debating Bill Marler on the safety of raw milk.
The Raw Milk Wars
Wednesday July 27 at 12:06
Kojo explores what is safe and what is legal when it comes to our consumption of milk.
Recent raids by the FDA have some communities up in arms about whether raw milk is safe to consume. But supporters of unpasteurized milk are rallying a movement that would make it easier to obtain. Kojo explores where food safety, the law and milk collide.
Sally Fallon Morell, President, Weston A. Price Foundation, author ” Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats”
Bill Marler, Attorney, Marler Clark (Seattle, Wash.)
The interview is on the Kojo show on NPR but is broadcast on a local Washington, DC station. You can listen locally on the radio at 88.5 FM or anywhere online at:

I realize I am totally biased here as Sally is my friend, but I think she totally SLAMMED Bill Marler. I think he sounded somewhat wishy washy and she sounded confident and clear with her message.

Couldn’t agree more, Sarah! Every case he brought to point out was met with evidence from Sally that his statements were half-truths (at best).
Don’t worry about what’s legal — only what is lawful. What’s legal today could be illegal tomorrow. But what is lawful can never be made unlawful.

is there any way to watch/listen if we missed it!?
It should be archived on the station website. The show didn’t end until just a few minutes ago so it may take a bit for the whole show to be available. Sally was interviewed only for the first 30 minutes of the show.
Here’s the direct link to listen, and YES, it’s still available to hear:

Uh oh, I didn’t see that it was EDT. Can I still watch it later even if I missed it now?
Great interview! Takeaways for me:
9.4 million people in the US drink raw milk (about 3% of the population). This is a HUGE increase from 10 years ago when I started drinking it. This number will only grow as more folks try it and realize and experience the huge health gains from doing so.
I hope I heard this right .. there was a blip in the transmission so I might have gotten this wrong (can any of you confirm)? There is a 35,000 greater chance of contracting food borne illness from eating other foods than from drinking raw milk.
Only 42 people per year get sick from drinking raw milk (out of the 9.4 million who drink it). This is much much lower than the risk of eating other foods.
I heard her say that too. She said we are 35,000 times more likely to get sick from eating other foods than we are from drinking raw milk. I think that number is so huge because of the recent HUGE recalls of common foods like meats, peanut butter, spinach, etc.
I was amazed at the number of people drinking raw milk! And it’s most likely even higher than that. We milk 2 cows for our family and sell what we can’t use to a few trusted wapf families. I can think of 6 other people in my area that do the same. We all keep it very quiet to avoid government harassment so we aren’t included in the 9.4 million. I imagine this happens in other places where raw milk isn’t exactly sanctioned.
I’m listening right now!
