Drinking soymilk is the quick and easy way to get the goodness of soy into your body by replacing unhealthy cow’s milk in coffee, cereal, smoothies and protein drinks!

Why Soymilk?

Humans have taken up the dubious habit of drinking the milk of another species. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of nutrition for calves and will multiply its weight 8 times over in 9 months. Unlike humans, once calves or any other mammalian species are weaned they never drink milk again.

Cow’s milk contains on average three times the protein of human milk and creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequences.

Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels dioxins and as many as 52 powerful antibiotics, in addition to the blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. It is a slow poison. …read more of Make Fresh Delicious Soymilk for Pennies in Just 20 Minutes! here

So Your Child Wants to Go Vegan…

The protein myth is a public relations gimmick perpetrated by the Dairy Council and various Meat and Beef Council organizations, which are actually PR machines for the animal agriculture industry and not government agencies. They are also the source of the incorrect assumption that vegan diets are somehow lacking, and if you don’t drink milk[1] you will weaken your bones[2].

Consumers tend to rely on the last segment they saw on Cable News or the Today show for nutrition information. Viewers, generally overwhelmed with maintaining their day-to-day modern lifestyle are inundated with contradictory information pumped through the media.

Consequently, when a child or teen declares that they will not eat animal products, parents resort to much wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth.

A balanced plant based diet with sufficient calories is more than adequate to maintain optimal health[3]. Americans consume two to three times the amount of protein necessary, which has a negative impact on their health. …read more of So Your Child Wants to Go Vegan… here

Metabolic (met-ah-BOL-ik) syndrome refers to a group of risk factors that raises the risk for heart disease, diabetes and stroke. The metabolic syndrome is a condition characterized by obesity, high triglyceride levels, hypertension, low HDL cholesterol level and high fasting blood sugar.

The risk for cardiovascular heart disease (CVD), diabetes and stroke will increase with the number of metabolic risk factors a person may have. It is generally accepted that a person with metabolic syndrome is twice as likely to develop CVD and five times as likely to develop diabetes as someone who does not have the metabolic syndrome.

The metabolic syndrome is well-recognized precursor to diabetes and a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition[1] was conducted with postmenopausal women with metabolic syndrome broken into three groups. …read more of Eat Soynuts To Reverse The Metabolic Syndrome here

Consumers are becoming concerned about food, health and safety issues and the social and ecological implications of their purchases. There is a growing distrust of conventional agro-industrial foods and consumers perceive organic products to be a more sustainable system delivering better-tasting, healthier and safer food.

A ten-year study by scientists at U.C. Davis in California found that the level of quercitin, the most common flavonoid in the human diet and the major flavonoid in tomatoes, increased 79 percent as a result of organic management. Also remarkable, the level of kaempferol, a natural antioxidant thought to prevent arteriosclerosis.

According to a report by The Organic Center in Boulder, Colorado, eating organic fruits and vegetables will increase the body’s antioxidant intake by about 30 percent, as compared to conventionally grown produce[1] …read more of British Journal Study Confirms Organic Produce Significantly Higher in Antioxidants here
