Cabinet maker says no cabs are all wood, sign off on paint?

I told my builder I wanted to avoid toxins as much as possible and wanted birch cabinets instead of MDF. When I got to the cabinet maker he told me they are part birch and part MDF/Melamine and that nobody does all wood. Furthermore, if I don't want all or only MDF and want them painted white, I have to sign off on that b/c they don't look very good in the seams or something???

Can anyone verify this or give me some additional information? I'd like to know if part Birch part MDF cabinets that are painted really look so bad. And why can't I have all birch - cost?
