And BTW...

I watched a Youtube video of this vegan guy who ate over 1lb of soy, per day, for 1 month and his test levels jumped around 20%.

Now, it was hardly scientific but it 100% proves scientifically that the bullshit about soy increasing estrogen levels is absolute bullshit.

That's been long established as nonsense.

Was thinking about this thread in the shop yesterday and was seriously tempted to pick up coconut milk but i didn't want anyone to lose their shit.
Ugh, packaged coconut milk..... sounds like such a good idea, but isn't.

Ok thanks for that explanation, that makes it clearer as to what the article is saying, but still just because cows milk mRNA may alter gene expression is that a bad thing, from what I've read breast milk also contains mRNA that could alter gene expression, should we stop feeding babies breast milk even though it's linked to countless benefits because of a possible change in gene expression? Alterations in gene expression can be beneficial for health, so while yes cows milk may indeed alter our genes we don't even know if it's negatively or positively?

As for Osteoporosis and there being no link to calcium consumption, did that study also factor in Vitamin D which most people are deficient in and which is required for calcium to be properly utilised for improving bone health. Doesn't matter how much calcium you consume if your vitamin D deficient.

I'm pretty sure I've read articles before about food choices effecting genes so I don't believe cows milk is the only food we consume that has bioactive compounds, so again what's the big deal? We don't know if mRNA does effect gene expression negatively or not and even if it does, cows milk is just one in likely a number of foods we consume that does this.
The point is that cow's milk isn't helping with osteoporosis. I assume vitamin D was a controlled variable and/or present in the milk.

The mRNA from a human mother's milk would benefit a human baby. The mRNA from a cow's milk into an adult human is an area of concern. That isn't the same system as with other foods.

I have both Almond and Coconut Milk in the fridge. I use them for different purposes (usually smoothies) but also do drink whole Milk. I doubt i'll be able to eschew it completely - though I'm not really trying too. I normally have two glasses of it a day, morning and night w/ Ovaltine or Nesquick (lol). It's been part of my routine since I was a child. Cow Milk doesn't give me any issues.

Collegan supplements.

Spent fuckin ages researching (watching youtube and shit) and I'm convinced of itbenefits in regards to skin, hair and nail health. It definitely (or maybe) promotes and protects youthfulness.

However, there's no vegetarian source for this which is extremely disappointing and racist.

Worth looking into though for all you as you all probs have fuckin blotchy skin, yellow nails and shite, limp hair.
