milk and manure are produced on the same end of the cow

UPDATE: The jury has aquitted the raw milk pusher of all charges! A small victory for the right to choose your own food is described here.

 That's the analysis of Heidi Kassenborg, director of the dairy and food inspection division at the Minnesota Department of Agriculture in an interview that's part of an article on the upcoming jury verdict in a case accusing a man of selling raw milk.
The state enforcement of laws against raw milk are meant to protect the population from pathogens but there are folks willing to assume the risk in order to obtain the benefits that they feel accrue from unpasteurized milk. Does the state really have the right to curtail one's freedom to eat what one wishes?
