      SOYMILK HAS MORE CALCIUM THAN COW'S MILK!*

      I was more than amazed when I made this discovery!

      Let's compare commercially prepared soymilk
      (in carton containers) and the soymilk you make
      fresh in your SoyToy to cow's milk.

      All of the data that follow were taken from
      USDA's nutrient data base:

      http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp

      CALORIES

      One cup of cow's milk contains 149 calories.
      One cup of store-bought soymilk contains
      81 calories.
      One cup of homemade soymilk contains 48 calories.

      FAT

      One cup of cow's milk contains 8.15 grams of fat.
      One cup of store-bought soymilk contains 4.68
      grams of fat.
      One cup of homemade soymilk contains 2.32 grams
      of fat.

      In order to absorb one milligram of calcium, one
      needs an equal milligram of magnesium. Therefore,
      in examining calcium values of food, one must also
      consider the amounts of magnesium.
      *#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*

      CALCIUM & MAGNESIUM

      One cup of cow's milk contains 290 mg of calcium.
      One cup of cow's milk contains 32 mg of magnesium.

      One cup of store-bought soymilk contains 10 mg of calcium.
      One cup of store-bought soymilk contains 47 mg of magnesium.

      One cup of homemade soymilk contains 32 mg of calcium.
      One cup of homemade soymilk contains 33 mg of magnesium.

      CALCIUM SUMMARY

      One absorbs the same amount of calcium from
      a glass of homemade soymilk and cow's milk.
      You will absorb only one-third the amount of
      calcium in store-bought soymilk.

      In examining both numbers together (mg of calcium
      and mg of magnesium), the lower of the two numbers
      becomes the lowest common denominator. Yes, cow's
      milk is saturated with calcium, but the low level
      of magnesium means that only a small amount of that
      dietary calcium is absorbed. Although there are
      290 mg of calcium in one cup of cow's milk, the
      32 mg of magnesium limit calcium absorption to
      a mere 32 mg. Homemade soymilk contains 32 mg
      of both calcium and magnesium. Exactly the perfect
      proportion!

      Commercial soymilk does not.

      How can soymilk provide more calcium than cow's milk?

      The cow's milk inhibits calcium absorption because it
      contains a relatively high amount (when compared to soy)
      of sulphur-based amino acids. Animal proteins create an
      acid condition in the bloodstream which the body
      neutralizes by leeching calcium from the bones. Ingesting
      calcium-rich (and protein-rich) milk and dairy products
      actually creates a negative calcium balance, and this
      becomes not the cure, but the cause of osteoporosis.

      In 1994 (volume 139), Epidemiology reported:

      "Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age
      20 years, were associated with an increased risk of
      hip fractures...metabolism of dietary protein causes
      increased urinary excretion of calcium."
