lots of female vegetable hormones in soy and soy milk. Generations of male babies have been drinking formula made from soy and its not good for males for various reasons. Product of great marketing for decades and subsidized crops. Soy is also the hardest bean and most difficult to digest, which was my own main issue.

I did not know this. In my corner of the world they rotate crops between corn and soy beans, but coming from Detroit all this farm living can be a little too "Green Acres" for me. I live in town but if I drive 5 minutes any direction I'm surrounded by farm land.

I had heard the same thing about soy milk, which is why we switched to almond. That may have drawbacks, too, but I'm not aware of any. Seems like there's something wrong with just about everything these days.

What is a reputable place to buy meat, and where do you find them?

We like The Fresh Market.... but they aren't everywhere. The chicken tastes like the chicken I had when I was a kid..... or the chicken in Indonesia. In other words, non-rubber chicken. Not using steroids and lots of additional chemicals makes a huge difference in the end product.

We have considered getting to know the local farming community but haven't at this point.

Ah, we've finally got some posting that I can show to my wife.

Maybe she'll put down that "thing" in her hand that she keeps waving at me... what do you call that thing - she rolls it over dough, and when she shakes it at me the white dust floats all over me.

Hmmm, maybe I'll give the almond a try. I noticed lots of packaging lists soy as an ingredient which could be a red flag

We have meat lockers around the area here. It's been suggested I try those at least once, and it will change my mind on what meat is supposed to taste like.

Is there a mirror and a razor blade and a rolled up hundred dollar bill involved? :twisted:

Yeah we just do what we can.

Drinking water? has traces of "the Pill" in it since it was introduces in the 60's. Millions of women, monthly, for 50 years, taking the pill with pharma chemical female hormones being pee'd into our water supply all this time. Add to it every other pharma chemical by millions of people every day... all being pee'd into our water supply... year after year...

Buying good water filters is not a bad investment.

Sorry for any doom and gloom! Let's look on the bright side - Spring is here! I'm so happy - I wet my plants!  :p :twisted:

Call yours whatever you want, but rolling it in dough is pretty wack.

I grew up in Montana. With the exception of Glasgow, Montana, the water from the tap was amazing.... clear, fresh. It tasted like ummmmmm water.

Back then, if someone would have tried to explain to me the concept of paying for bottled water, I wouldn't have been able to grasp it. That said, we now use around 12 gallons of bottled spring water at our house every week and this doesn't include what we buy when we're out and about.

What a country.

What great marketing & propaganda. Don't trust your town's water filtering. Buy Nestle water. Mmmmmm... natural...

Yeah, can you can you imagine other countries using bottle water? Pffft. That'll be the day.
