Men who eat lots of dairy are at 400% greater risk of prostate cancer than other people, and people who eat the most dairy suffer more osteoporosis, so eliminating dairy from the diet permanently can be a fabulous thing.

I did buy some rice milk to use. I don't think I will drink it but figured it would be good for mixing in stuff....
Rice milk is actually tasty. It's a tad starchy tasting, but it's good, and it's really good to cook with.

You may want to try hemp milk, too. It's a really good, nutritional bang. It's not cheap, though, but when you read the label---WHOOOO, it's just loaded with good stuff, so it makes a person feel a bit better about the price. I drink it all the time--plain, vanilla, chocolate---we've always got some here.
