Raw milk is wonderful, I have consumed it for weeks without any problem.
What is your guys opinion on raw red meat? Of course it shall be grassfed/organic but what you guys think?
Does it really give a benefit over cooked meat?

No. Much harder to chew, much harder to digest, tastes much worse.
And more prone to transmit diseases.

Idk. What's the purpose of cooking meat?
To paraphrase Marc Faber: We're all doomed, but that doesn't mean that we can't make money in the process.
Rabbi Lapin: "Let's make bricks!"
Stephan Kinsella: "Say you and I both want to make a German chocolate cake."
Going back a couple of hundred thousand years in evolution, I’m afraid.
Don't think it really has any benefits, but there are certainly recipes where raw meat is used, such as Carpaccio or Beef Tartare
Here in France they eat a lot of tartare and carpaccio.
And if you ask for a steak "cuisson bleue" it is basically raw meat that you'll be getting.
Raw horse meat is better than raw beef.
You should not eat raw pork nor raw fowl though, it's dangerous.
What about salami?
Highlights: Usually grows to 35 feet long, lives for 25 years. Undercook your beef or fish etc, and you might get it.
Humans acquire the infective larvae from eating undercooked meat
Prevention is easy; cook beef until it is no longer pink inside and 56°C in the center, because this kills the cysticerci. Also, beef frozen at -5°C is considered to be safe to consume.
This parasite is found anywhere where beef is eaten, even in countries such as the United States, with strict federal sanitation policies [ha!]. In the US, the incidence of infection is low, but 25% of infected cattle are still sold
You won't even know you have it, though you will feel constantly sick and weak, until you see white worms floating around your toilet bowl. They are actually small pieces of that giant tapeworm still in your belly.
...heavy infection often results in weight loss, dizziness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, constipation, or chronic indigestion, and loss of appetite. There can be intestinal obstruction in humans and this can be alleviated by surgery. The tapeworm can also expel antigens that can cause an allergic reaction in the individual.
No wonder the French are so crabby.
Salami has been cooked, so you should be OK.

It's easy to refute an argument if you first misrepresent it. William Keizer
Regarding tapeworm risks, pork is riskier than beef which is riskier than horse meat.
You should never eat raw pork though, because the risk of ingesting worm eggs is high, and these can get into your blood stream and install in your brain, where they hatch into brain eating larvae and can induce madness.
In any case, you shouldn't eat meat from unsanitary sources. I don't know if you can assume that american beef is safe, you should check it out.
I like it semi-rare. Raw? Eugh (says the person posting with a vampire in their avatar...). There's a reason we don't live in caves anymore.
Freedom of markets is positively correlated with the degree of evolution in any society...
The human digestive tract clearly shows that it has been long-adapted to eating cooked foods. In fact, this is one of the ingredients to the evolution of higher intelligence in humans; with the ability to cook our food, we no longer needed to maintain such a massive calorie sink in our gut and we could attain a much better metabolic energy input-output ratio as the food we ate was basically "pre-digested" by the cooking process. This, in turn, allowed us to shift our calorie budget to our brains. It is not clear that fire caused intelligence (and not the other way around) in humans but it definitely played a causal role. Something that has completely rewired your entire anatomy versus your evolutionary predecessors should not be ignored. Cook most of your food and definitely cook any animal product. And don't drink milk if you're an adult.
