The Institute for Risk and Uncertainty at the University of Liverpool will host this third event in our three-part Raw Milk series. These day-long events are open to the public and feature invited speakers, proffered presentations and posters, session on collaborations and proposal opportunities, and open discussion on the advantages and risks of raw milk, use and misuse of statistics, consumer protection regulations, and the challenges of balancing costs and benefits in any decision.
Humans depend on a diverse, protective microflora of bacteria. Some argue that pasteurisation of milk robs consumers of essential health benefits. Others worry that raw milk can carry disease bacteria leading to illness or even death. This event will feature open discussion on the efficacy and ethics of regulating a burgeoning industry whilst protecting public health.Find out more about the Raw Milk Series here
