chi_rock saidMight as well get the extra protein with non-fat milk.
Yea, I use NFDM (nonfat dry milk) a lot. Cheap.
Doesn't work for everyone though, e.g. lactose intolerance, milk allergies, taste dislike, etc.
If milk is pumped with hormones, then show me data that says we are affected by it.
Almond milk is nothing but fatty flavored vitamin/mineral water. Not milk by definition due to very little protein. It's currently the fad.
The studies done comparing milk, soymilk, and almond milk with prostate and breast cancer cells were done in vitro/culture, not in vivo. One is quick to assume the cause of the cancer growth was the hormones in the product, not the fact that cells will grow when exposed to growth-promoting nutrients like PROTEIN and carbohydrate. Milk/soymilk have protein, almond milk has 1 gram (and a banana has 1 gram of protein too, but we don't call it milk).
Review article (summation of many studies) about evidence for milk consumption. Overall is recommended over being a vegan.
In vitro study that shows cow milk and soymilk promote cancer, whereas almond milk do not. One study.
My opinion is milk is fine. Soymilk is fine. Almond milk tastes good, but is not an equal substitute for milk due to less protein and more fat.
