(NaturalNews) Even though the federal government does not actually have the right or authority to dictate what free individuals can and cannot eat, the Obama administration has officially rejected a WhiteHouse.gov petition signed by more than 6,000 Americans seeking freedom from federal tyranny against raw milk.

Food freedom advocates filed the petition as part of the We the People: Your Voice in Our Government program which, at the time, promised a response to any petition that gathered at least 5,000 signatures within 30 days. However, the federal government has since raised that signature threshold to 25,000 (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/10/26/we-people-takes-next-step-responding-your-petitions ).

A response letter to the petition from Doug McKalip, Senior Policy Advisor for Rural Affairs, rehashes the same tired nonsense about raw milk’s supposed “health risks,” and touts pasteurization as a type of Godsend for protecting the ubiquitous “milk supply” from deadly pathogens, as if all milk everywhere is exactly the same and part of a single, government-provided supply.
You can read McKalip’s full response to the petition at the following link (http://https//wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions ).
