- A: I don't know if this will be much help, but the following is a link from one of my favorite truth-seeking websites, snopes.com:http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/soya.aspThe article in the link features an email, then an explanation as to which parts of a soy plant are any concern, etc. Basically, if you don't eat huge amounts of soy it won't hurt you.

- anyones toddler on almond milk?
- Q: I have started my daughter on whole milk and noticing she has a rash so I am wondering where is such a highly allergic food that she mght be allergic, and since its really not the healthiest thing with all the junk in it, so I was wondering if anyone is using almond milk. I am not interesting in soy milk cause of all the stuff they say about it mimicing estrogen and stuff.So if your using almond milk do you add anything to it, or does it alone contain enough nutrients for a toddler.
- A: Be careful, its more common to have a nut allergy than to have a true milk allergy. And for a toddler, there is very little nutrient content that they are recieving from milk as part of their diet and probably even less in almond milk. Soy does have estrogen like compounds in it, but it will not cause any problems with feminization in your child. There are other products like rice milk you can try. The main thing is looking for Vitamin D supplemented items. Remember, the average toddler should only have 2-3 cups of milk a day, as more can lead to a iron deficiency.

- Q: I just tried Hempmilk this morning and it was pretty gross. It tasted like mint/grass and that is not good with cereal at all. I was about to get almond milk, but I noticed that Hempmilk has more protein than almond milk so yeah. What kind of milk will give me some calcium/protein and will taste the most like soy milk without the Estrogen in it?
- A: I'm going to agree with rice milk. Goes great with cereal (tastes much better than milk in cereal, actually), makes great hot chocolate, I got a decent curry out of it, fine with teas, makes a great addition to smoothies. It has a light, sweet taste. Lots of rice milk is fortified with B12 and protein too.
