The U.S. Department of Agriculture will add Greek yogurt to subsidized children’s school lunches. New York politicians like Nanny Bloomberg cannot stop themselves from inspecting our pantries and rifling through our lunch boxes, spurred on by Michelle Obama’s insane school lunch takeover. The injection of Greek yogurt into the school lunch program is being pushed aggressively by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, who represents New York State dairy farms. The farms stand to benefit greatly from the explosion in consumption of the trendy food.
Liberal elitists (translation: old, rich white women) have been slurping down the thick, plain stuff for years– and of course, it comes from Greece, so it must be good. Once Ben & Jerry picked it up and pronounced it “worthy,” the feeding frenzy for Greek yogurt has caused the number of Greek yogurt producers in New York State to triple in less than 5 years.
In an ironic twist of environmentalist fate, apparently during the making of Greek yogurt, the yogurt MUST be strained. That process leaves a waste by-product called acid or sour whey which is a liquid by-product consisting of water, lactose, protein and yogurt cultures. Modern Farmer reports that whey acid is so environmentally toxic that it is illegal to dump it. Once it gets into the waterways, it kills off most aquatic water life.
Even more interesting is the fact that according to many medical sources, more than 75-100% percent of African Americans, Native Americans and Mexican Americans and Latinos are genetically lactose intolerant and would not be able to properly digest the yogurt – causing bloating, cramps, gas and diarrhea in as little as 20 minutes after consumption.
