I just took my kids tonight to the traveling BodyWorlds exhibit currently in Salt Lake City, comprised of “plastinated” Asian cadavers posed in incredible ways (yoga, gymnastics, and many other stances).   The skin is mostly flayed off of the cadavers of former political prisoners (one part of the audio tour explains why they do […]

Soy or rice milk

Robyn, I switched from skim cow’s milk to soy milk last year after reading The China Study.   I dilute it 100% w/ water so that the consistency isn’t so creamy.   Now that I’ve read your info on Soy products I’m not sure what to do.   It seems like the soy milk has […]
