Standing in line at StarBucks yesterday to get my pre-workout, extra-caffeinated beverage (medium red-eye with a bit of cinnamon), I noted the rather unhealthy looking, pale grayish-skinned (most likely vegetarian but not addressing deficiencies), slightly fat but definitely mushy soft woman with hippy tendencies order a “non fat latte with soy”. I then watched her dump a couple of packs of honey and about 3 grams of sugar into it. But that’s another story.
I was taken because Starbucks still serves soy and more, that people still drink it. If you’ve not heard, soy is isn’t just not good for you… it is worse. Check out the articles below and ask your local coffee spot to start stocking coconut and almond milks.
Want more or simply not convinced? Just Google search Soy and you’ll find plenty of research clearly showing the ill effects of Soy.
