What’s Wrong With Soy Milk?

with 9 comments

Can soy milk be hazardous to your health? Robert Cohen, also known as the ‘Not Milk Man‘ of NotMilk.com, thinks so and has provided us with a thorough response. For those of you unfamiliar with Cohen, he is the founder and executive director of the U.S. Dairy Education Board, which works to dispel the myth that milk is a perfect food.

Cohen’s response can be read here.

An excerpt from Cohen’s article:

“Do methanol, ethanol, and formaldehyde do your body any good? Do preservatives preserve health, or do they merely preserve enormous profits gained by manufacturers at the expense of your health?”

This is a must read for anybody currently consuming or thinking of introducing soy milk into their diet. Also, it is important to note that I have chosen not to discuss the environmental impact of soy cultivation but will do so in a future post.

Man cannot pretend to be higher in ethics, spirituality, advancement, or civilization than other creatures, and at the same time live by lower standards than the vulture or hyena.” – Jay Dinshah (1933 – 2000)

Be Well.
