Yogurt. Is It Really Good For You?
Yogurt is being pushed continually through television commercials as being good for your digestive health. Have you added yogurt to your diet?
If you answered YES..
You might want to reconsider . . .
Yogurt is not nearly as healthy as you’ve been led to believe by the food manufacturing industry. While it may be tasty, it is usually LOADED with sugar and/or artificial sweeteners, plus a number of other additives.
And not only that . . . Yogurt is generally heat processed or pasteurized, which destroys the live bacterial cultures. Additionally, dairy products are not easily digested and our bodies don't recognise them as food. The pasteurization process may kill the lactase enzyme, which makes dairy products more easily digestible but it doesn't change the fact that dairy causes many digestive problems, thickening of the lymph system, skin rashes and breakouts and can lead to illness and disease including cancer. Still want that yogurt?
