Pathogenic microbes are not transmitted through the milk

It is true that in the past for human milk transferred significant microbial pathogens mainly caused gastrointestinal diseases, or agents for tuberculosis. The present is but thanks to strict standards completely different.

Microorganisms in milk can be given directly to the mammary gland. Epidemiologically important, however, contamination of milk during milking and other storage before processing.

After decades is given here and in other developed countries, emergency health care breeds. In our conditions are all important for human disease, such as. Brucellosis or bovine tuberculosis, eradicated.

One of the fundamental doctrines of the EU's "security" of food.
They are thus the microbial safety. Continuously increasing quality criteria for microbial contamination of raw milk. They are precise rules that govern the conditions of storage and transportation of milk for processing. Finally, the extremely demanding conditions of technological processes milk processing with respect to microbial contamination. The whole process from milking to final processing of milk to ensure minimize microbial load.

"The present microorganisms are killed during milk processing physical processes that collectively known as pasteurization. All of these methods guarantee that the commercially available milk and milk products contain no germ vital and can be a source of contamination. This does not apply fully to raw, unpasteurized milk, "says
prof. Dr.. Jan Krejsek, PhD. the project plus White.

It is likely, however, that the raw milk that comes from well-managed breeding, is not for a healthy adult or child grown significant health risk. Conversely, non-pathogenic microbes, which are retained therein can positively modulate mucosal immunity humans.

Primarily through the Internet are disseminated rumors that the transmitted through milk from animals to humans bacterium Mycobacterium paratuberculosis, which are considered to be speculative originator severe immunopathological bowel disease, Crohn's disease.

"These ideas should be rejected for several reasons. There is no medical evidence that M.paratuberculosis can be transmitted from cattle to humans and infect it. Neither has never been scientifically proven that M.paratuberculosis could be seen to be associated with the emergence and development of granulomatous inflammation in the gut of patients with Crohn's disease, "says
