    Thanks Pat; our son was allergic to cows-milk when he was a baby and that introduced us to soy milk. I got away from it though. I will consider soy milk again after reading your informative article. Thank you so much!!

    I wonder about Soy as it concerns women on HRT. There is some worry about the natural plant estrogens that soy contains. I'd like to know more about that.
    Thanks for the great article, Pat.

      Hello Wil, Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your question. You have asked about soy and how it concerns women on HRT? That is a big topic. Yes, soy is beneficial in balancing hormones in both men and women. It is not necessarily wise to overdo the use of soy as was done by many women a few years ago. I am not a medical doctor so do not know the circumstances of why HRT is prescribed for any particular woman. I do know HRT does not provide the protection against osteoporosis, heart attacks, or strokes as once thought. It has been linked to increased risk of cancer, particularly breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Personally I believe the problems with soy can be traced to use of the genetically modified soy products as they can alter hormones and such. I am a woman 68 years old and had a hysterectomy when I was in my late 40’s but kept my ovaries (against the recommendation of my doctor) which threw me immediately into menopause. I refused any HRT treatment and continued my use of supplements that included soy, vitamin E, calcium-magnesium, herbals, etc. and kept the unpleasant symptoms of menopause to a minimum. Again, I believe the only worry about plant estrogens in soy is if the soy has been genetically modified. I hope this helps with your question. Thanks for asking and if you have additional questions, I will be happy to research them.

    Thanks Pat for great info. I didn't know about the roundup..yikes.   I don't do Silk at all.  If wanted to buy organic nuts and wanted milk, I would  make own organic and have done that.

      Hi Carol, do you raise your own soy? ‘Silk’ is ceritified non-GMO so I feel comfortable with it. Thanks for your input.

    We drink  Silk soy milk instead of cow's milk. Thanks for educating me on soy. We eat lots of soy products. Great info Pat.

      Hi Claudia, we use Silk soy milk also because it is Non-GMO and it is the first soy milk we have tried that tastes good (and I like my food to taste good). Be sure to check into the other soy products you use to be sure they are not genetically modified. If their label does not say, I would certainly be cautious. Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks for the info, Pat.  For good reason, almond milk is my drink of choice.

      Hi Lizabet, I have not gotten into almond milk or checked it out – something I need to do. We do make sure that any soy we consume is not genetically modified. If we had access to raw cow milk, that is what we would use. Thanks again for stopping by.

      Hi Cat, thanks for the comment and time spent reading my article. GMO soy is a very scary food however unmodified soy has safely been in the human diet for years and provides many benefits to our overall health. Thanks again for stopping by.

    Amazing information.  I'd heard much of this yet it's so good to be reminded once again.  We must be so careful about where our food comes from!  Thanks for compiling all of this in such an easily understandable way 🙂
