    I hate food that talks to you.

    Even worse is food that talks back, and wins the argument.

    Here in Canada you can still buy milk labeled “homo,” for “homogenized.” It’s the full fat variety (3.25%). Never fails to amuse visiting Americans.

    My working title for this was “No Homo,” but I decided I didn’t want to have to explain that.

    Poor milk carton, buying into government propaganda. In what way is 2% healthier than whole? Reduced fat?

    How has the low-fat national experiment (based on a 50-50 guess) worked out for our health? We’re fatter, more diabetic, more heart disease, more cancers, more degenerative disease. The evidence that saturated fats in milk are unhealthy is flimsy at best and fraudulent at worst.

    But still damn funny!

    1% is healthier than 2%. I can’t stand skim milk, but once you get used to 1% milk the taste is okay.

    My mother, who as a child lived on a relative’s farm in Buffalo NY during the depression, refused to drink skim milk. As she explained it, “Skimmed milk is what we mixed with spoiled food, and used as slop for the hogs.”

    The apparent Coming Milk Wars almost make me wish for lactose intolerance.

    Homo milk is wholesome.

    Actually 2%, 1%, and skim milk have higher sugar than whole milk and children from 1-10 benefit more from whole milk than any other because it aids in healthy brain development. So I highly disagree that the others are “healthier” for you than whole milk because they all have pros and cons you trade one bad for another.
