Got milk?

The New York Times is reporting that the country’s leading group of pediatricians recommends children receive "double the usually suggested amount of vitamin D because of evidence that it might help prevent serious diseases."

While I am not a lover of milk (it really is intended for baby cows) vegetarians can imbibe.

Hmm- I worry about the hormones in milk so I have just recently started buying organic milk. The best alternative vegetable based "milk" I have tried is the brand 8th Continent chocolate soy "milk." Are there other tasty yet healthy reader favorite vegetable based "milk" brands that readers recommend?

Organic milk still has hormones in it - the natural pregnancy hormones that are present in all pregnant and lactating mammals. Cows must be forcibly impregnated in order to produce milk. If you've ever been around a friend or spouse who is pregnant, you know the hormones rage. Same for cows. Organic milk also includes pus and blood from infected udders. Cows are not meant to be milked constantly so when they are they get mastitis (inflamation of the udder), which causes pus and blood to come out with the milk (and of course this is horribly painful for the cow). We are the only species who continues to consume breast milk (because that's what it is, cow breast milk) past weaning. In organic dairies, male offspring are still either killed or sent off to become veal and dairy cows whose milk production starts to wane are still sent to the slaughterhouse to be killed for hamburger. Please stop consuming milk (from any animal!) and milk products. Go VEGAN!

Vitasoy soymilk is delicious. They have amazing flavors like chocolate banana, chocolate peppermint, and strawberry banana along with their regular plain and vanilla flavors. Also the hazelnut milk, almond milk, oat milk from Pacific brand is amazing. Hemp milks vary by brand, try some and decide for yourself!
