Strange this suggestion to drink Soya milk. I wonder if Monsanto has anything to do with this. They produce the most of the world\'s genetically modified soya seed and so many other nasty things. I have worked with soya oil and would really seriously recommend that you have nothing to do with anything related to soya. I will not eat or consume anything that has soya in it in any form. The Samburu people in Africa live on virtually nothing else but bovine blood and milk. One never sees osteoporosis among them. I used to drink a quart of untreated unpasteurised milk every day of my life from the age of 7 until the age of 17 and I have massive bones and have never broken a bone despite riding unbroken horses and steers in rodeos, and being bucked off regularly. ????
