A parasitic disease known as Cryptosporidiosis (Crypto) is currently affecting people in Hamilton County who consumed raw milk. Raw milk is 150 times more likely to cause a foodborne illness than pasteurized milk, according to the Tennessee Department of Health.

Dr. Jean-François Rossignol, chief medical and scientific officer and founder of Romark Laboratories, says while unpasteurized dairy products may contain harmful germs, those affected don’t have to suffer.

CRYPTO IS MORE COMMON THAN YOU THINK IN THE U.S. PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE THE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS WHEN PURCHASING AND CONSUMING RAW MILK PRODUCTS.  IF INFECTED, PROPER MEDICAL TREATMENT IS REQUIRED BY A DOCTOR.  PATIENTS AND DOCTORS HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO TREAT PARASITIC INFECTIONS PROPERLY.
