The truth about Soy Milk

Soy milk is a liquid made from ground cooked soybeans that is usually fortified (with calcium and vitamins) and used as a milk substitute.

For long time soy milk have been used as a milk substitute. Some lactose intolerant people drink it because they want a milk substitute. Some health-conscious people drink it because they think it is the “heart-healthy low fat option.” And some vegans drink it because they don’t want to drink cow milk.

Soy is definitely one of the most controversial foods in the world. Depending on who you ask, it is either a wonderful superfood or a hormone disrupting poison.

But why all this controverse about Soy ?

Over 90% of soy produced in the U.S. is genetically modified and the crops are sprayed with the herbicides, which may be associated with adverse effects on health.

What about Soy milk?

Almost every ingredient in soy milk  is cause for serious concern. Here are the ingredients in most of the Soy milk brands 

Soy milk (Filtered Water, Whole Soybeans), Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Carrageenan, Natural Flavor, Calcium Carbonate, Vitamin A, Palmitate, Vitamin D2, Riboflavin (B2), Vitamin B12.


This seaweeds based additive is extremely inflammatory is so caustic to the digestive tract. The world health organization classifies one type of carregenan as a possible human carcinogen.

Vitamin D2

Vitamin D2 is a synthetic and isolated form of the vitamin D and, as a result, is extremely poorly absorbed.

Vitamin A

The vitamin A added to soy milk (and other non-dairy milks) is synthetic and, as a result, lacks the vitamin co-factors. Remember, your vitamin is only helpful if accompanied by its co-factors.

Natural flavors

“Natural flavors” can even mean various additives, even forms of MSG and artificial sweeteners.

In conclusion Non Dairy milk are good alternative for vegetarian and lactose intolerant people but we have to be careful about the ingredients. Always check the labels

I personally recommend avoid Soy milk for the reason that I expose in this post, and always look for unsweetened varieties of almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk between others.

See you soon

Recycling Clothes

“If you really think the environment is less important than the economy, try holding your breath while you count your money.” Dr. Guy Mc Pherson

Every year millions of dollars are going to waste in used garments  only in United States, if we talking about all the world is a scandalous amount of money,  consumerism  is a global problem the same than pollution.

Our usual clothes are made from 4 basic materials: cotton, wool, silk and synthetic fibers.

Synthetic fibers such as nylon, perle, and lycra are made from petroleum derivatives, and their manufacture generates significant air pollution.

Another example is polyester is a synthetic fiber, the production generates CO2 and other contaminating substances, it consumes large amounts of water and its catalyst is carcinogenic and toxic to humans. When it is washed it gives off fibers that go to the rivers, the sea and the fish that with all those toxics we then ingest. This type of products takes a long time to decompose.

In addition to the contamination and toxicity of the materials we have the problems generated by the fashion industry, that produce 150 million garments annually. Enough to give a wardrobe full of clothes to every habitant of the planet.

It is truly worrying this situation due to the degree of pollution which help to worsen the global warming situation.

The question is what we can do to help our planet?

Here are some recommendations:

Applying the three R (reduce, reuse, recycle) this means buying less garments preferably of better quality, buying second hand and ecological clothes

Promote barter markets and Upcycling also known as supra recycling to create products that have a higher value than the one that had the original material or what is the same that transform waste into valuables.

Recycling more than a decision is a responsibility of every individual living in the planet, we have no another planet to go. A small change in your habits can make a big difference. The generations of the future will be grateful.

Reciclaje textil 

Reciclando, ropa, medio ambiente

“Si realmente crees que el medio ambiente es menos importante que la economía, intenta aguantar la respiración mientras cuentas tu dinero” Dr. Guy Mc Pherson 

Cada año millones de dólares van a parar a la basura unas 100 toneladas de ropa usada, nuestra ropa habitual está hecha de 4 materiales básicos algodón, lana, seda y fibras sintéticas.

Las fibras sintéticas como el nylon, el perle, y la licra se obtienen de derivados del petróleo, y su fabricación genera una importante contaminación atmosférica.

Otro ejemplo es el poliéster es una fibra sintética, su producción genera CO2 y otros gases consume gran cantidad de agua y su catalizador es cancerígeno y tóxico para los humanos. Al lavarlo desprende fibras que van a parar a los ríos, al mar y a los peces que con todos esos tóxicos luego ingerimos.Este tipo de productos tarda mucho tiempo en descomponerse.

Además de la contaminación y toxicidad de los materiales tenemos el problemas de que genera la industria de la moda, se producen 150 millones de prendas anualmente. Suficiente para regalar un armario lleno de ropa a cada habitante del planeta.

Es verdaderamente preocupante esta situación debido al grado de contaminación lo que ayudan a empeorar la situación de calentamiento global. 

La pregunta es que podemos hacer para mejorar esta situación. Aquí algunas recomendaciones:

  • Aplicar las tres R (reducir, reutilizar, reciclar) esto significa comprar menos prendas, de mejor calidad y que nos gusten, comprar ropa de segunda mano y /o ecológica,
  • promover mercados de trueque y el Upcycling también conocido como supra reciclaje para crear productos que tienen un mayor valor que el que tenía el material original o lo que es lo mismo transformar residuos en objetos de valor.

Reciclar más que una decisión es una responsabilidad de cada individuo que habita en el planeta , no tenemos otro planeta a donde ir. Un pequeño cambio puede hacer una gran diferencia. Las generaciones del futuro lo agradecerán.

Hasta pronto

Organic cosmetics and Natural cosmetics

Organic cosmetics can be defined as 100% natural products made under strict standards that take care of the environment and skin.

In cosmetics, organic products are those that use raw materials of natural origin such as fats and vegetable extracts, waxes and essential oils grown without chemicals, pesticides or agrochemicals.

The key concept in organic matters is traceability: That is to say that the sowing, the care, the harvesting of the fruit and then the transformation into oil, gel or others and its later elaboration in a laboratory are done according to what the normative.

Difference between natural and organic

Although often the natural word is used as a synonym for organic, not everything that looks bio, it is. Organic products require certification that they have been grown and processed according to controlled agricultural standards.

Differences between organic cosmetics and conventional cosmetics

When we choosing natural cosmetics it is important to understand that their elaboration, smell, texture and presentation is different from that of conventional products which contain a good dose of synthetic assets.


They tend to be more liquid and oily since they do not use silicones (petroleum derivatives) or artificial thickeners.


Since it does not contain dyes and additives the products are in the range of brown and yellow greens


An organic product is not synonymous with hypoallergenic. There are organisms that react to certain trees and plants. The ideal is to know the ingredients and know whether or not we are allergic to them.


They do not have the same shelf life as those made with chemical preservatives. They usually last from 6 to 12 months


Look for certification seals and read the components.

In my next article I will talk about some of the natural cosmetics that I use, their benefits properties and how to analyze the information contained in the labels to make sure they have the requirements of bio cosmetics.
