Research Project: "Not for Human Consumption" - the risky business of raw milk - Canberra

PhD candidate Penny Wilson will present her final seminar on her research into the governance of raw milk.

Her research examines the dangers, and benefits, that the scientists and regulators are protecting the community from and asks if raw milk is really such a health hazard. In spite of the vehement statements by regulators and scientists warning against drinking raw milk, committed consumers still demand the product. Tonight Penny will examine the strategies, risks and dangers producers and retailers take to indulge consumers’ risky pleasure. Furthermore, she will ask if a legal, regulated product would be less risky than prohibition and the corresponding growing underground trade in raw milk.
