The different ways milk and dairy products are produced in the United States, as well as the pros and cons for consumers, the environment, and the cows involved are described in this provocative book. Readers learn that factory-farming practices can produce mass amounts of milk cheaply, but they can also lead to sick cows, a polluted environment, and milk that may not be healthy to drink. Topics covered in this informed narrative include the pasteurization process, the rise of organic milk, the return of raw milk, the making of ripened cheese and processed cheese, the cost of intensive dairy farming, the toll on the environment, and ways teens can become savvy consumers.
