The Fuming Fuji is outraged by the marketing of toxic food, especially when it’s aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with yogurt.
But, Fuming Fuji, you ask, isn’t yogurt healthy in its wonderful bland creaminess?
The Fuming Fuji says no!
The claim: Yogurt is a great way to get a serving of dairy, which we all know is full of lovely calcium, protein, and vitamins.
The catch: Yogurt is a great way to get a serving of gelatinous goop, which is actually full of sugar, antibiotics, hormones, chemicals, dyes, artificial flavors, and probably pus.
The comeback: But Fuming Fuji, yogurt contains healthful cultures like acidophilus bifidus.
The conclusion: Yogurt still has as much sugar as a Coca-Cola. Yogurt makers do not have to prove how much of so-called beneficial bacteria is in actual product. You need a lot more than they include. You can get more culture from a Steven Seagal movie. Yogurt is glorified dessert.
The catchphrase: Yogurt? Nogurt!
