    Can I get some views on whether its good for you or not. I keep getting mixed views about it and I'm totally confused.

    I dont advocate soy. Its feminizing, genetically modified and as a vegetarian, I am trying to move away from meat-looking substitutes.

    Its possible since soy causes an increase in estrogen.

    I personally blame government cheese for fibroids. But that's a conspiracy for another day.

    My experience with Soy was just like my experience with milk, no different what so ever.

    I am now drinking Hemp milk, Almond Milk and Hazelnut Milk... Moreover, I am using those milks with my cereals and with recipes that require milk.

    Oh well, no more Soy milk, because I've suffered with Fibroids for a while, and have had five removed, plus cystic breast, so I'm going to follow your wisdom and change to something else.

    What about rice milk? And forgive me for my ignorance, but hemp won't cause problems with urine drug test will it? LOL

    I don't have a thing against ganja, but I don't want to lose my job, but since you posted it, I want to try it out, but have to ask the question first LOL!!!!!!!!!

    Hahaha, that is a good question. I am self employed so I never really gave any thought to that...LOL

    Here is some information about Hemp milk that may be useful...

    At this link, there is information about drug test and hemp milk.

    I from time to time drink rice milk but it is thin in texture and substance and sometimes has this smell to it after about 3 days, it is not one of my favorites at all.

    You know what, out of all those milks that I drink, I love the Hemp milk best. I am telling you, it taste really great and smooth, it goes great with anything, and it's a no wonder why.:)

    If you really want to avoid contaminents, make your own milks. It is not that hard and you will KNOW with certainty whats in it.

    @Bootzey..... I remember your saying that some time back so I went on youtube looking for people that were making their own Hemp milk. They called it Hemp milk but none of the ingredients they used were related to Hemp. Have you ever made Hemp milk? If so, can you tell me how or direct me somewhere where I can get that information? Thanks in advance... Astrologer4U
