I have no access to raw milk, so I opt for natrel fine filtered pasteurized whole milk. The thing is, it's so expensive my parents can only afford to pay for 2 litres a week, but this isn't enough to get the benefits of the dairy fat. My question is, is pasteurized and homogonized milk any worse than organic pasteurized milk. Please be unbiased because I know how many of you love raw milk but i don't have access. So is there any disadvantage at all to drinking more homogonized milk rather than extremely limited organic pasteurized

Drink up, bro.
Pasteurized is a bigger deal than homogenized. I care about non-homogenized milk more for taste than health benefits. The only place I know to get such milk (vat pasteurized at lowest legal temp and nonhomogenized) is quite far from me, so I get a couple gallons when I am near there and the rest of the time, I make do with the homogenized stuff. I drink a lot of milk as it is hard for me to get enough calories down the hatch, especially in summer, and that's one easy way to get quite a few without it being a bunch of sugar. I don't have lactose or casein issues, so for me, the benefits outweigh any (largely overstated) downsides.
I'm sure that there are going to be those here that disagree with me, but I don't let perfection stand in the way of progress.
