- Processed soy milk is bad. Natural, home-made soy milk is good.
- Processed cow’s milk is bad. Fresh, raw cow’s milk is good.
- Processed cheese is bad. Natural, home-made cheese is far less so.
Incidentally, since all cheese is processed, and all cheese is bad, it is a logical fallacy to propose that home-made cheese is anything but bad. Both statements cannot be accurate.
This blog's only debatable facts, as opposed to unsupported statements of opinion, appear at the end of the blog. His sweeping statements about minerals and phytonutrients can be applied to soy milk, spinach or cat food. I've heard much better arguments about the Kennedy assassination or the Free Mason's control of the world. At least a conspiracy theorist is willing to expose his evidence to scrutiny.
