Myths and facts
Yogurt has healthy beginnings. It started out as a health treat, but what has been done to our yogurt?
- The milk the yogurt is made of is no longer what it used to be. From the way the cows have been treated to the hormons they have been given, that goes into our bodies. Read the book Devil is in the Milk and check out WestonAPrice.org.
- It’s a SUGAR BOMB! Most yogurt contains a whopping 15 to 28 grams of sugar!! That may not seem much to you, but it’s the equivalent of eating a toaster strudel with icing (9g) or a king size Kit Kat bar (26g)!
- Flavor FAKE! The delicous sounding flavors such as double dutch chocolate, black forest cake, or the ever popular strawberry, are nothing more than chemical components.
- The pre-packed toppings are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, loaded with mercury! – The second most toxic element on the planet. NOT healthy!
Yogurt can be very healthy, but it can also be worse than any candy. Read your labels.
