First off, no human being needs soy milk or almond milk to be healthy. I see these as transition foods or once-in-a-whilers. Almond milk is a way to ween people off of dairy if they can’t or don’t want to eat it. Soy milk is processed, usually has additives, and is most likely GMO — or GMO contaminated. Not the best option, in my estimation. Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger.
