It’s time to set the record straight on processed food. If you read my writings often, you know I think it bears the lion’s share of the blame for obesity and its attendant diseases, because processing — and only processing — enables the cheap, nutrient-challenged, ubiquitous foods that are specifically designed to be overeaten.

But “it’s processed” isn’t a reasonable objection to any particular food. It depends on how it’s processed.
