Pasteurized VS Un-Pasteurized

The purpose of pasteurization is to kill organisms such as salmonella, listeria, and more from harming our bodies. Also, to keep from spoiling. Sounds good to me but as always there's two sides to a story. As if I'm not confused enough. So I did what I do best. Research!

Named after Louis Pasteur in the late 1800's. Pasteur invented the method where food and liquid is heated to kill viruses and other harmful organisms. But it left me wondering... How did the human race lived before this process?

While researching I found that this is a very touchy topic. Tons of debates that causes division between those who are for or against it. I was intrigued with what I was reading. Studies have shown there's no difference in nutritional value. Raw milk lover's disagree saying pasteurization reduces some nutrients such as Vitamin C and other nutrients.

It's all about personal preference. Below are two articles that I found interesting while researching this topic.

Whew!!! I need a cookie
