From a friend of mine:

"Milk is bad for the body regardless of whether it is raw or not. Milk is a leading cause of bone loss due to the high phosphorus content and protein's calcium absorption blocking effects. And heart disease due to the xanthine oxidase in milk. Unpasteurized milk can harbor dangerous pathogens.

Raw vegetables can also harbor dangerous bacteria, but these can be removed with soaking in water with a little peroxide or bleach then rinsing. A big problem with many raw vegetables though is the fact that many are very goitrogenic when raw. Cooking them a little can help reduce the goitrogenic activity and makes the vegetables easier to digest. It has also been shown that slight cooking of carrots can also increase their carotene content."
