The Pus Scandal: this is how the Dairy Industry Lies to the public

When the hot video revealed that the public eats and drink pus, someone decided to restrict it on youtube.

From Wikipedia:

“Somatic cell count (SCC) is an indicator of the quality of milk. Somatic cells are leukocytes (white blood cells). The number of somatic cells increases in response to pathogenic bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus, a cause of mastitis. The SCC is quantified as cells per ml. General agreement rests on the values of less than 100,000 cells/ml for uninfected cows and greater than 300,000 for cows infected with significant pathogens.[citation needed] The California mastitis test provides a cow-side measure of somatic cell count. The somatic cell count in the milk also increases after calving when colostrum is produced.”

“For example as defined by the State of Indiana administrative code,[1] grade A milk shall meet the following standards:[2]

  • The bacterial estimate classification shall be “acceptable”.
  • The bacteria count using the standard plate count, direct microscopic count, or plate loop count methods shall be not more than one million (1,000,000) bacteria per milliliter.
  • The somatic cell count shall be not more than one million (1,000,000) cells per milliliter.
