and the oxalate controversy rages on……

We got lots of interesting email in response to my rebuttal to the wildly exaggerated and completely undocumented article posted by one “Sarah, the Healthy Home Economist” that tells people not to drink green smoothies and says they can “devastate” your health.

What can I use to replace MILK?

Newbies ask me this question all the time when they learn that milk, contrary to the $50 million advertising budget of the Dairy Council, isn’t a good food for humans.
