Milk healthfulness depends on the individual and the type of milk they consume. People assume that raw milk is rich in proteins and very healthy but no,due to its neutral pH and high nutritional and water contents, raw milk is an ideal feeding ground for bacteria. Pasteurized milk(packed milk) however, undergoes a good heating process that kills bacteria that may be inside raw milk by any chance but in manner that retains its nutritional contents.
Firstly, you should consume pasteurized milk because it contains 8g per cup of proteins which is necessary for repairing body tissues and preserving lean muscle mass. Raw milk though has high proteins which may lead to weight gain.
Secondly, a higher potassium intake and a lower sodium intake are important for reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases like blood pressure and heart disease which are associated with raw milk.
