it's soy milk that's been enriched with calcium and vitamins.
is that the right stuff?

it's not uncommon for someone to become lactose intolerant as they get older. i read somewhere that we've evolved to not have a need for milk when we're adults. we tell people to drink milk their whole life for the calcium but really the best milk we ever got was breastmilk which has a number of nutrients and natural antibodies that we could never re-create.

oh yeah, jc, soy milk is much cheaper at an asian store. except they really DO like the taste of the soy vs. the one's you find in the "regular" grocery store which try to make it closer to cow's milk. mmm...it's good either way!
cow's milk has hormones in it. they feed dairy cows hormones to produce more milk than they would normally produce. hormones are passed into the milk and cannot be filtered out. when humans drink this milk, the hormones act on OUR bodies and for some it could be the root cause of acne. you could try organic milk but it's pretty expensive. and since some people are lactose intolerant, soy, almond, or rice milk are better alternatives.
even so, those poor cows are milked every day until their milk production slows (even with hormones) and then they're ground up for hamburger meat. if you read "Fast Food Nation" it's a pretty realistic view of exactly where our food comes from. it's a great book =)
