The American Academy of Pediatrics is joining the host of medical groups that say you should not drink raw milk.
Raw milk products have become more popular due to claims of health benefits, but pediatricians say those claims are not backed by science.
New evidence suggests raw milk causes more disease and illness than pasteurized milk, and poses significant risks to young children and pregnant women.
Doctors say between 1998 and 2009 there were nearly 100 disease outbreaks caused by raw milk consumption.
Researchers say several studies have shown there is no nutritional difference between raw and pasteurized milk.
