Thank you so much for you article on the benefits of raw milk ("Is Milk Still Milk?" Aug. 2). I actually grew up drinking the milk from Mr. Peake's farm--the original Claravale dairy. He was an incredible man, supporting small business, standing up for his beliefs and providing a source of good health. Toward the end of his life, at 90, he would still get up every morning at 4 o'clock to tend to his beloved Jerseys. All his old land was bought by newly wealthy Silicon Valley millionaires.

Louisiana lawmakers Tuesday threatened the Food and Drug Administration with budget consequences if the agency followed through on a plan to ban Gulf Coast oysters harvested during warm weather that are not treated with antibacterial technology. Industry advocates said that the FDA's plan would imperil 3,500 Gulf Coast oystering jobs by imposing heavy technology costs, and that the 15 annual deaths attributed to eating untreated raw oysters were not excessive considering the volume consumed.

A pilot study failed to show something many people believe - that drinking raw milk reduces the symptoms of lactose intolerance or malabsorption. The condition is common worldwide, and can lead to bloating, abdominal pain and diarrhea. But the specific prevalence of lactose intolerance is not known, the researchers from Stanford University said. Current coping strategies include not drinking milk, drinking lactose-free dairy products, taking lactase enzyme tablets and other behaviors, but none of those eliminate the symptoms, the researchers wrote.

The decision by our dairy to go to court to challenge a critic of raw certified milk products is an effort to present scientific evidence, not silence it, as indicated by your editorial. The $110-million suit is not a move to intimidate but rather to serve notice that the dairy suffers financially from irresponsible statements made by those in a position of responsibility. We agree with the obligation of scientists to share their findings, but when the statements are biased to scare rather than inform they cannot go unchallenged.

A short time ago raw sewage spilled into the beach at Newport. Last month raw sewage spilled into Aliso Beach in Laguna. Shall we wait until there is an epidemic of cholera, dysentery and several other death-causing diseases before the city or county declares a moratorium on building and until the adequate filter beds and larger sewer lines are built and installed to accommodate the ever-increasing amount of sewage from new construction in Orange County?...

There are plenty of R&B -style numbers on Harlem-born Williams debut album that sound OK without quite reaching knock-your-sock-off territory. There are a few cuts, however, that are so low-down and no-nonsense that they force you to sit up and take notice-like the dance-oriented "My Love Is So /Raw," which features and abrasive and tough-rapping Nikki D. Funny and oh-so-hardcore, Willams has a confrontational style that's closer to Millie Jackson than...

The Food and Drug Administration said Monday that state and federal inspectors found the bacteria in "critical areas" at Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc. FDA officials also say they found areas at the facility where raw and roasted nuts could become cross-contaminated with salmonella....

I am to pay 25 cents per pack of cigarettes so that the state can persuade me to stop smoking. In this age of raw fish and half-baked ideas, I only wish more people smoked. C. MULROONEY Los Angeles

In today's creative scene, where art, fashion and design converge, Santa Monica fragrance designer Haley Alexander van Oosten is adding scent to the cultural mix. Collaborating with everyone from style maven/photographer Lisa Eisner and designer and artist David Wiseman to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Maxfield and Commune design, Van Oosten is making a name for herself by challenging traditional notions of fragrance. "I find commercial perfumery to be a very limited medium," says Van Oosten, whose company name, L'Oeil du Vert, means "eye of the green.

Raw, pasteurized, organic, whole, skim. Choosing what sort of milk to drink grows ever more complicated, with several recent studies to add to the debate. The American Academy of Pediatrics advised that pregnant women and children not drink raw milk because of the danger of bacterial illnesses, including salmonella, E. coli and listeriosis - food-borne diseases that can be fatal. The academy this week also endorsed "a ban on the sale of raw or unpasteurized milk and milk products throughout the United States, including the sale of certain raw milk cheeses, such as fresh cheese, soft cheeses and soft-ripened cheeses.

The American Academy of Pediatrics on Monday warned that pregnant women and children should not drink raw milk and said it supports a nationwide ban on the sale of raw milk because of the danger of bacterial illnesses. The group's statement said it supports federal health authorities “in endorsing the consumption of only pasteurized milk and milk products for pregnant women, infants and children.” The academy also “endorses a ban on the sale of raw or unpasteurized milk and milk products throughout the United States, including the sale of certain raw milk cheeses, such as fresh cheese, soft cheeses and soft-ripened cheeses.” California is among 30 states that allow the sale of raw milk and one of the few that allows it in grocery stores.

The new One Direction album sounds like it was designed to win over (or perhaps further irritate) people likely to scoff at the idea that this British outfit is the biggest band on the planet. The scale of its success seems beyond dispute, with 16 million Twitter followers, 35 million albums sold worldwide and well over 1 billion views of its videos on YouTube - all in the two years since the group released its debut in 2011. Coldplay and Foo Fighters can't even get in the same room to compete.

A pristine oyster on the half shell, unadorned, fresh, cold and briny, is a near-perfect thing. A properly shucked littleneck clam, alone, or with a drop or two of lemon and Tabasco, will make you say mmmm, every time. But just because these shellfish are so good raw doesn't mean we shouldn't cook them too. Properly cooked shellfish is a wonderful thing. The cooking intensifies and transforms the flavor. Oysters especially change completely when cooked, seeming rich and fatty in the best way, while in the raw state they are anything but. You've got to be careful when cooking either type of shellfish, though.

The moral of "Blue Is the Warmest Color" is simple: Sex without love is nothing; life without love is even less. French filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche's story of sexual awakening and real love stretches over 10 years. Loosely based on Julie Maroh's superbly illustrated graphic novel and adapted for the screen by Kechiche and Ghalya Lacroix, it traces the life cycle of a relationship beginning to end. The telling is beautiful and explicit. The truth of its emotionally raw, romantic drama is eternal and universal.

Gene Mauch should be commended for leading a group of over-the-hill superstars and raw youngsters to an excellent season. As a symbol of appreciation, the Angels should rehire Mauch for next season. And fire him right before the playoffs begin. CHAD LAINES Long Beach

Alison Saar's work makes a tremendous visceral impression on contact. Its own physical potency, the concise urgency of its forms, acts on the body. Though it needs no verbal scaffolding for support or rationale, titles often help actualize its metaphorical potential. Consider one small, tabletop sculpture in Saar's engrossing show at L.A. Louver. The standing female figure is 14 inches tall, cast in bronze and loosely covered by a square of sheer white silk, like a handkerchief to be lifted for the big reveal.

WASHINGTON - The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence data with Israel that probably includes sensitive information about Americans, according to the latest top-secret document leaked by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden. The 2009 document, a memorandum of understanding between the NSA and its Israeli counterpart, says the U.S. government regularly hands over intercepted communications that have not first been reviewed by U.S. analysts and therefore may contain phone calls and emails of American citizens.
