Dr Fetherston on the Milk Standard. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 13 June 1914
Dr Fetherston on the Milk Standard. In his annual report to the Prah an Council Dr R. H. Fetherston, City health officer, writes thus on the question of the milk standard "The milk standard is continually being debated, as it is said by dairy-men to be too high. Personally I &nbsp; think it matters very little to the public whether the standard for fat 35 or 33, and it means very little &nbsp; in the food, value of milk, but what I consider of the greater importance is the number of germs the milk contains in each drop. In many countries &nbsp; not only is a standard of fats &nbsp; and solids prescribed, but also that 'I must not contain more than a certain number of germs to a given qnantity. This means that milk must be sound, and fit for food when sold. I would strongly urge that a standard as regards bacteria be fixed in any new legislation. Disease is not produced by milk a little short of solids, but by milk containing an enormous quantity of ge...
