The Way I See it #289

I love those little quotes they put on the Starbucks cups. Didn't have a chance to make my breakfast today, so grabbed a soy chai this morning and this is what my cup read:

So-called "global warming" is just a secret ploy by wacko tree-huggers to make America energy independent, clean our air and water, improve the fuel efficiency of our vehicles, kick-start 21st century industries, and make our cities safer and more livable. Don't let them get away with it.

My msg for the day: Go Green!

    Looks like a few blokes have been truly impressed with the 'onion' culture.. :D

    Slightly off-topic but relevant to "green" - soy is one of the least green products on the planet. It's a product, not a plant anymore - more than 55% of the world's soy crops are genetically modified. And excessively consuming soy in any form - even as candles - means we are contributing to the pockets and horrid intentions of companies like Monsanto. Monsanto is one of the least ethical companies around, and they actually even set up in India under the umbrella of IIS (Indian Inst of Sciences) in B'lore. There they started selling to Indian farmers, "better" seeds that would die after a season forcing farmers to purchase them every year to grow paddy. Activists caught on to this, and drove Monsanto out but not before a long long struggle. Monsanto is responsible for many such "innovations" world-wide. Think about it!

    Soy is also bad for health, especially for babies and women. Loads of phyto-oestrogens that are not easily metabolised by the body, increasing chances for breast cancer plus more. Consuming the equivalent of a couple of glass of soy milk a day is enough to throw off your menstrual cycle within two-ish cycles. Again, we must examine the way things were... Asian ppl never eat copious amounts of soy daily, and they use many fermented soy products (e.g. soy sauce, miso) that are not only safe to eat but are nutritious. If you really think about it, you have to make your own decisions about food/health. Especially in the US where too much of anything on the market is almost certainly due to an economic impetus, and almost certainly not due to health benefits. Have you ever wondered why when someone mentions Vitamin C you picture an orange rather than broccoli (which has more bioavailable Vit C than citrus) - this is bec of the citrus industry and their pull in the FDA. The FDA also doesn't publicise the fact that all the OJ on market shelves has very little Vit C left by the time it reaches stores. Potassium = bananas for most people but potatoes have twice as much K as bananas. So before this turns into a total rant, re-visit soy culture and decide for yourself!

    Thanks Payal for your thoughts on this. Very insightful! The reason I choose Soy over regular milk is because I follow non-dairy diet. Maybe I shud think of giving almond or rice milk a shot. But I have been drinking soy milk for nearly 3 years now and my cycles have been very predictable. So touch wood ... I hope it's not doing me any harm.

    But you are right, in todays world, what we see on the shelves and what we believe is healthy, is just what the 'companies' have made us believe. The only thing we can do is try eating and drinking those foods which are minimally processed and keep your diet varied.

    Thanks for all the info ... enjoyed reading it! :)

    Soy doesn't throw off everyone's menstrual cycle - the phytoestrogens just mess with human hormones enough to throw off some womens' cycle and the counterpart for men is a surplus of estrogen. For sensitive people this manifests and for most of us it's a word of caution. Either way, the fact remains that Asians don't consume mad amounts of soy at every meal and with good reason.

    Def give rice milk a try - I've tried them all - rice, oat, almond, hazelnut, peanut (yes!!!!), barley - and I love ricemilk the best. Nut milk usually tastes rancid and oatmilk has too much stuff in it. I've been off dairy for pretty much my whole life - I hated the taste of milk when I was a child and then I just couldn't stand the idea of drinking another animal's milk... a bit too intimate for me. Not to mention the digestive problems bec of long proteins contained in the milk of large animals.

    Areille, here's what I bumped into, in reference to the author of this thoughtful 'Global warming' quote:

    Heroes of the Environment-,28804,1663317_1663323_1669902,00.html

    Quite cool, huh! :)
