Jenna Goudreau smears soy milk, citing an RD who apparently claims the stuff is genetically modified. Nevermind the fact that most soy milk brands carry organic or non-GMO seals (I’ve never heard of a single case of GMO crops being allowed organic certification.) Goudreau then claims soy milk is a more expensive, less healthy choice than cow’s milk:
In a year, you’ll spend about $90 more for potentially harmful milk with more calories.
Naturally, topics like BGH, IGF-1, lactose intolerance, and antibiotic traces are never brought up when she presents cow’s milk as a better choice than soy. Not content with simply bashing soy milk, Goudreau also recommends cream cheese over organic peanut butter.
Why is it a bad idea to assign a staff writer lacking nutrition credentials to churn out dietary advice articles? Because what you get is articles like this. Link.
