Infants who consumed raw cow's milk had reduced rhinitis, fever risk

October 20, 2014

The risk for respiratory infections including rhinitis and fever, was reduced in infants who consumed raw cow’s milk during the first year of life, according to recent study results.

Researchers studied 983 infants (51% male) from rural Austria, Finland, France, Germany and Switzerland for the first year of life (37,306 person-weeks). Half of the mothers recruited lived and worked on livestock farms. Diaries were used to log the types of cow’s milk consumed and rhinitis, respiratory tract infection (RTI), otitis and fever occurrences. Blood samples at 12 months measured C-reactive protein levels.
