The Case for Food Rights: David Gumpert featured on Grist and NPR’s Living on Earth

David Gumpert, author of The Raw Milk Revolution, Behind America’s Emerging Battle Over Food Rights, argues on Grist that the courts should break with another major taboo: restrictions on our access to food, most notably, raw milk. The Farm-to Consumer Legal Defense Fund is facing off with the FDA over their repeated attempts to restrict consumers access to raw milk, a product many believe to have important and unique health benefits. The FCLDF is arguing on the basis of civil rights, not merely on the basis of consumer preference. This frames the raw milk debate in more meaningful terms for those seeking policy changes. Gumpert was also interviewed for a recent episode of Living on Earth that focused on a recent rally in Boston where fans of raw milk staged a “drink-in” on the Common, with Suzanne the cow providing the beverages.
