    Unless you have allergies to soybean, I see no problem, except perhaps bloat which happens to some people. Otherwise, it's an excellent source of protein and a good substitute for dairy milk.

    You'd be better off drinking real milk, but if soymilk is what you want, there's no harm in it.

    Yep. Soy is fine in small amounts or occasionally but ideally should not be consumed daily. If you want a dairy alternative why not drink almond, coconut or oat milk?

    Soymilk is popular but it can contribute to thyroid problems. It contains isoflavones. These compounds have oestrogenic properties, which means they act like oestrogen, the primary female sex hormone, and bind to oestrogen receptors in the body – and oestrogen can fuel the growth of some types of breast cancer.

    And soymilk is made from soy beans. Generally, i don't think soy bean products of any type are the best food to ingest.

    Of course it's bad for you! And it tastes bad too! Why can't you drink REAL milk???

    In a protein shake is a good idea. Use a decent brand, not one filled with oils, sugar overload and bulkers, etc. Despite the myth, soy is not estrogen; it's PHYTO-estrogen which means, plant.
