Be very careful with SOY products, though all natural, sure, they are known to cause major health problems, especially in children. It can cause early puberty, breast diseases, and prostrate problems,as well as cancer in these areas. Asians do not consider SOY a super food, it is eaten like ketchup over there. Not on or in everything, but a condiment for certain foods. In small amounts it can be very benificial, but we should not be replacing other valuable foods for this food which was meant to be eaten in small amounts. Just like certain herbs that are benificial can cause problems and even death if you take too much, so can soy. For more information you can visit and learn about it, and other things that cause such problems.

I have attempted numerous times to order the Whole Foods and Cooking E-Handbooks by clicking on the order now link. Each time I get a security warning. How do I go about learning more about this book?

I was raised on raw milk, raw cheese, raw butter and homemade yogurt & kefir. Cow's milk made up about 70% but we did milk goats and sheep. Both the goat & sheep milk was used in the raw form only. I was a horse trainer starting at the age of 9 and worked & played hard at my trade. I never had colds, flu nor any contagious illnesses. I left home to work in Fairbanks, Alaska. There was no raw dairy available. The taste of pasteurized dairy was horrendous and there was no life in the products. I came down with a life threatening case of double pneumonia. When I was able to travel, I moved back to my home state and back onto all raw dairy and my health improved at once and within 6 months my lungs were strong and healthy again.

Factory dairy farms are not checked often enough. Mastitis has GOT to be a problem with that many cows in that small of an matter how many antibiotics are used. I, personally can not stomach the thought of pus milk. I switched to organic dairy products and still cut WAY back on our consumption a year ago.

Quitting milk and cheese has "cured" my constant colds/sinus problems.Milk products are frequently hidden ingredients in many common foods, so it's difficult to give it up completely. I do "cheat" occasionally.By cutting out dairy products from my daily eating, my "nasal allergies" and "colds" have all but gone away. I used to constantly need drugs to keep from getting "all stuffed up". Since I've been dairy-free, I've only taken a few doses of Sudafed in the past year.
