This is totally true about the green leafy veggies. So many kids are suffering from allergies because of the milk-calcium rumors. A reasonable amount of yoghurt is better, since the bacteria content helps create a healthy intestinal environment and boosts the immune system.

Even as a person who replaces everything possible with soy milk--even in making mayonnaise, creme caramel and icecreams--I must say there are certain times where butter, cream and milk just cannot be replaced, taste-wise. But like you say, those are "treats" and not things we eat every day, or in quantity.

I love, love, love soymilk--yes, the taste-- and always have to have at least 5 liters in the fridge or I mildly panic!

And Plastic's Wife, if deriving so many different foods out of soy were unnatural, then the traditional Japanese diet would have been highly unnatural for thousands of years!

I drink cow's milk for the taste. But am trying to convert to soya, as I hear it healthier.

I rarely ever drink any kind of milk but when I do it's usually skimmed cow's milk.

The difference is that cow's milk tastes good, and soy milk doesn't.

You may just want to be aware of the estrogen-like effect of soy ... if you are one of the 1 in 7 women with endometriosis, or have any similar disorder, IMO you should run a mile--you don't need anything more that imitates estrogen.

I love milk (both cow's and the raw goat's milk I drank as a child, loved it), but it can be tough to find organic milk (no weird hormones) that tastes good because it's practically always superpasteurized. Central Market's is the best I've tried, I really like it. Even the skim tastes good ...

Cows milk can be totally fat-free and healthy.
I have a laktose intolerance, so I drink laktose-free milk that we have here in Skandinavia. I've also discovered a non-laktose and fat-free cows milk that has fiber and calsium added in it. I'ts yummy and very healthy.
So I prefer Cows milk.
