soya milk

Hi all

I use organic soya milk in my tea. I've read a few negative things about soya milk which has worried me a little. Is it founded? Does anyone else have this concern? It's the only milk I really like in tea. I have almond milk on my cereal. I tried hemp milk recently and loved it. But saw on the ingredients it contained mono and diglycerides which are not permitted on swank diet so I'm a little confused. Are they to be avoided on oms, sorry if that's a silly question I find some of the science stuff confusing

Mono and diglycerides are trans-fats, worse than saturated fat and to be avoided.

Q Professor Jelinek allows legumes including soy, but after reading lots of information elsewhere, such as Ashton Embry and the authors of the 'MS recovery diet' who do not allow legumes, I am confused and it seems that soy in particular appears to be an unhealthy product. I want to do everything possible so I need advice.
Legumes, including soy, are extremely healthy foods, and are full of protein, which is useful for people not eating animal products. They have been used for centuries by many societies and there is no clear documentation of any health problems associated with their use. Some have suggested they be avoided by people with immune based diseases, but there does not appear to be any strong basis for this suggestion. Soy in particular would appear to have many advantages over dairy products, and most studies suggest better health outcomes for those consuming soy products regularly.

Thank you

I only tried the hemp milk once and after I noticed it didn't have it again. Glad I didn't now!
