What is the main idea of this article? A. Some people say that raw milk should be sold, while others do not. B. Pasteurization kills microbes in many foods. C. Some people say that E. coli sickened the children, while others do not. D .Milk is a natural food that is good for people. Here is the article, His customers like raw milk. They believe it contains helpful microbes. They say that these microbes can treat a range of health problems. But the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says that drinking raw milk is a bad idea. FDA officials say that raw milk also contains harmful microbes. The FDA says these microbes can kill people. For this reason, they are working to stop the sale of raw milk. What is “raw milk?” Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized. During pasteurization, the milk is heated to a certain temperature. It is then cooled. Pasteurization is meant to kill harmful microbes such as E. coli. Supporters of raw milk say that pasteurization kills not only harmful microbes. It also destroys the milk’s nutrients. Supporters believe that these nutrients can help the body. Supporters say the nutrients protect the body against some illnesses. Raw milk supporters do not want pasteurized milk. They want natural foods. The FDA says pasteurized milk is better. The group insists that pasteurization does not change the nutrition of milk that much. The FDA also says that pasteurization is necessary. It protects customers from harmful microbes. These microbes can make people sick. Now, the FDA is cracking down. It wants dairy farmers to stop selling raw milk. Shutting down this business, however, is proving tricky. The government has allowed each state to manage its raw milk businesses. This has resulted in a jumble of laws. These laws are hard to understand. Currently, 28 states allow dairies to sell raw milk. But 22 states do not. Therefore, the FDA must work together with state officials. In Pennsylvania, for example, officials checked two dairies. They found that the dairies had unlawfully sold unpasteurized milk. Mark McAfee is the owner of Organic Pastures. This dairy is California’s largest raw milk supplier. McAfee is also being checked. The FDA has begun looking into whether McAfee broke the law. Officials think McAfee might have sold raw milk where he was not supposed to. McAfee is also being taken to court by some families. These families had bought raw milk from McAfee. The families claim McAfee’s milk made their children sick. One child spent two months in the hospital. She had E. coli poisoning. This caused her kidneys to stop working. Health officials said that the E. coli probably came from the raw milk that she drank. McAfee said the claims are not true. He said his dairy ran tests. The testing did not discover the type of E. coli that sickened the children. McAfee and other dairy owners believe they have the right to sell raw milk to anyone who wants it. But the FDA says that drinking raw milk is not worth it. Officials point out that raw milk has sickened hundreds of people. Experts say 1,000 people fell ill from raw milk. Two of them died. That was just in the years between 1998 and 2005. John Sheehan heads the FDA’s dairy office. He said that no one should drink raw milk. It’s too dangerous, he said.

Because one loves you, Helen Grey, Is that a reason you should pout, And like a March wind veer about, And frown, and say your shrewish say? Don’t strain the cord until it snaps, Don’t split the sound heart with your wedge, Don’t cut your fingers with the edge Of your keen wit; you may, perhaps. Because you’re handsome, Helen Grey, Is that a reason to be proud? Your eyes are bold, your laugh is loud, Your steps go mincing on their way; But so you miss that modest charm Which is the surest charm of all: Take heed, you yet may trip and fall, And no man care to stretch his arm. Stoop from your cold height, Helen Grey, Come down, and take a lowlier place; Come down, to fill it now with grace; Come down you must perforce some day: For years cannot be kept at bay, And fading years will make you old; Then in their turn will men seem cold, When you yourself are nipped and grey.
