Soy Latte

After 27 years of life, I have stopped drinking another mammal’s excretion. I have come to the conclusion that cow’s milk is better suited for baby calves and not adult humans. The only reason we drink milk from a cow is because it’s cheap to produce; if the dairy industry could find a more economical way to produce milk from a camel, we’d all be drinking camel milk within a generation, after “new research” shows that camel milk offers more “health benefits.”

I was talking to a friend about my recent decision to wean myself off the cow teat and he told me I was crazy, that milk is good for me and I’m sure to die a horrible bone-shattering death down a flight of stairs at the age of 50.

“How do you know milk is good for you?” I asked.

“What do you mean, it’s common sense. Studies show it’s good for you.”

Another victory for public relations! Now I’m not writing this to convince you that milk is bad for you, but the last person I’m going to trust when it comes to what I put in my body is an industry motivated by profit. Whenever you are wondering if you should believe someone or not, ask yourself how much that person would lose if the opposite were to be true. If it’s measurable in large dollar sums, as in billions of dollars, it may be prudent of you to be a little bit more skeptical. Money is all too powerful and corrupting of an incentive.

I bought a soy latte recently and was pleased with the taste. I’m becoming such a lame hippie cliche, with my long, non-showered greasy hair and beard, carrying books around and consuming soy products. I won’t be surprised if I go vegetarian. On an unrelated note, I’m currently in the market for an acoustic guitar.

Milk…I can understand that, the nutritional value is suspect and it doesnt taste all that great anyway. But what about butter and cheese?? That is a tough one budy.

Good for you. I totally agree with you. Milk tastes terrible and fucks with your bowels. I prefer the taste of soy milk, myself.

good for you! milk IS gross and it’s bad for you.

don’t worry, you won’t instantly become a hippy the second all dairy leaves your system; i don’t eat/drink any dairy and i hate hippies.

matt, once you take a break from butter and cheese you will realize they are just as gross as milk. the smell of the cheese section at whole foods makes me want to vomit.

Oh damn! Just found this article about the effects of soy on men. A few points:

“Soy is nutritious and contains lots of good things. Unfortunately, when you eat or drink a lot of soy stuff, you’re also getting substantial quantities of estrogens. … If you’re a man, you’re suppressing your masculinity and stimulating your “female side,” physically and mentally.”

“Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality.”

Don’t do it Roosh! Your readers don’t want you going beta on us!

soy raises estrogen levels and decreases test levels.

http://jn.nutrition.org/cgi/content/abstract/135/3/584

this could be a good thing or bad thing.
player fortification = bad.
general heart/prostate/hair health = good.

and sean is right. there’s no sense limiting your profit-motive skepticism to industries that have fallen out of favor with the blue state zeitgeist.

Soy milk is not bad. My father has trouble with regular milk, but soy milk he can handle without problem. He had me try some… and much to my surprise, it tasted good.

Definitely go with the vanilla flavor if you have a choice.

I’m intrigued by the thought of integrating human breast milk into my daily routine. A little bit of boob juice in my coffee! Human cheese! You think that’s weird? If so, why is it weirder than drinking the milk of an anonymous COW?

Unfortunately, I don’t quite feel comfortable asking the couple of new mothers in my immediate social circle to spare a bit of their output, nor do I expect they would say yes. Thus this particular experiment will probably have to wait for a while.

Here’s an interesting article about how some people have recently evolved to become lactose tolerant:

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/11/science/11evolve.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

I’m lactose intolerant and don’t eat dairy, but I go back and forth about the vegetarian thing. I think my body actually operates better when I eat meat.

Here’s a question: When a guy says he’s vegetarian, isn’t it tempting to immediately classify him as a beta? Just thinking here.

lame. sounds like you are just bored and trying to be different in some way. I like cheese and yogurt too much to stop eating dairy. I like soy too, but I would eat pretty much anything.

Cows milk is horrible for the human bodies. No animal continues to drink milk after weaning and no animal consumes the milk of another animal, except for humans.

Americans consume enormous amounts of cows milk ( significantly more than Asian nations) yet we have some of the highest rates of osteoporosis in the world.

The dairy industry has got a stranglehold on the FDA.

For guitars, I’d suggest a Tacoma if you’re looking towards some of the more upmarket American guitar manufacturers. Slightly cheaper than Taylors and Martins. I have a Chief, which is more unconventional looking.

SmartBlkWoman, I wonder if you live up to the 2nd half of your name because the first part just isn’t true.

Several species of ants milk other animals in exchange for their protection.

It’s called a symbiotic relationship…and that’s exactly what we’ve got with our bovine friends.

Actually, the life of a milk cow isn’t really particularly pleasent, unless it’s one of the organic/animal friendly type farms.

All of our supply chain for food is best thought of a black box. Imagine a happy animal on one end, the black box, and then store wrapped food. Getting into what happens during most animal processing would turn your average person into a vegetarian.

Despite all that, I do eat meat. mmmm…. steak.

“Getting into what happens during most animal processing would turn your average person into a vegetarian.”

this is because the average person inculcated with the, ahem, warm curdled milk of lazy post-western liberal ethical mush afforded by modern comforts sufficiently walled-off from the ol’ red in tooth and claw survival instinct has turned into a pantywaist.
HTH.

Goat’s milk is much closer to human milk in terms of chemical composition. If you want a good alternative, drink goat’s milk.

hate to break it to you goldie but organic farms arent that different than regular dairy farms. organic / non-horomone injected / non-antibiotic dairies aren’t green fields with cows frolicking in the grass. they just change a few technicalities.

for example, for a non-antibiotic advertised farm they treat it with anti-biotics throw away the milk and then send the cow to slaughter. for farms that use antibiotics, they treat the cow, throw away the milk while on the drugs and when it is healed circulate it back into the herd. they’re coming up with meds that are not anti-biotic based pretty soon every dairy will be able to slap that label on the carton.

i wont continue…

Dude, hating on milk? Of all the things to hate on? Aren’t there any players/poseurs to mock? C’mon, milk?

Not to mention this belief in milk as a military industrial complex bent on domination. I would like to point out that 1) Cattle are very expensive to maintain relative to other foodstuffs, both in terms of money and land, 2) Milk is very low profit (how much brand name milk do you see?) and 3) While very few other animals naturally drink milk after weaning, most other animals routinely eat their own poop.

Sean might have a point. Put down the Chomsky and slowly back away, bud.

1) In a symbiotic relationship one of the parties doesn’t end up dead, as cows definitely do after we use them for all the milk we can get and then send them to slaughter for meat.

2) Do you understand the difference between “milking” an animal and “drinking milk (actual milk) from an animal”?

Here is some help:Honeydew is a sugary byproduct that comes from the digestion process of aphids and some other insects. It forms drops at the end of the insect’s abdomens, and the ants collect it like milk from a cow. Link
