The Dark Side Of Greek Yogurt

The latest in “healthy” foods that are not actually good for us is Greek yogurt.  Every three to four ounces of milk produces only one ounce of the creamy snack,  and what’s left becomes acid whey, “a thin, runny waste product” too toxic to dump because whey decomposition could potentially turn waterways into aquatic-life-destroying “dead seas.”
