It looks like Thailand doesn’t have great health records but I did find this: http://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/thailand-coronary-heart-disease
Almond milk is still a processed food so we don’t recommend drinking it by the glass. We do use it a bit in baking and cooking. I feel like it’s different than coconut milk because it doesn’t have the saturated fat. But I think it’s a personal choice.
And yes, the whole food is always the best option.
Thanks for letting us know you find our work helpful. That is always nice to hear. 🙂
