A study published in the journal Biology of Reproduction reveals that both prostate cancer and hair loss in men can be prevented by consuming soy products. The reason? The consumption of soy products results in the creation of a unique molecule in the intestines called equol. This equol blocks the function of DHT -- a hormone responsible for stimulating prostate cancer and causing male pattern baldness.

This is a very big deal that blows away efforts to develop pharmaceuticals that would accomplish the same thing. To quote directly from the article: "This molecule is remarkable," says Kenneth Setchell, PhD, director of Clinical Mass Spectrometry at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. "These findings are of immense clinical importance because blocking the action of the potent androgen (male hormone) DHT has been one of the holy grails of the pharmaceutical industry as a strategy for treating prostate cancer and other related diseases. This natural metabolite made from soy isoflavones, which are found in high amounts in soybeans, does this very effectively."

In other words, soy milk beats the pharmaceutical companies yet again by providing the "holy grail" molecule the drug companies have been searching for. But you don't have to pop pills to get it: all you have to do is join millions of Americans and start drinking soy milk on a daily basis. I've been drinking soy milk for years, and today, I wouldn't think of touching cow's milk. Cow's milk has all sorts of nutritional problems and promotes chronic sinus infections, asthma, constipation and many other disorders. It's also contaminated with pus and blood thanks to the milking process. Worse yet, most cow's milk contains homogenized fat which is terrible for your cardiovascular health. Overall, cow's milk is great nutrition for baby cows, but a terrible food choice for adult members of an entirely different species (humans).

Soy milk, on the other hand, is a nutritional goldmine. It has none of the drawbacks of cow's milk while offering substantial health benefits related to soy consumption. This latest research about soy's ability to prevent prostate cancer and stop hair loss in men is just one of the many benefits of soy.

I've found that many people have difficulty switching to soy, however, so here's some good advice on how to accomplish it. I'll assume your trying to transition from cow's milk to soy milk. First, realize that your taste will change in response to your dietary choices. If you make this transition and avoid drinking cow's milk for a year or more, you will find that cow's milk tastes absolutely terrible. Similarly, even though soy milk might taste "strange" to you right now, it will taste absolutely delicious after the transition. It's all a matter of getting used to the taste. Here's how to do it:

Start mixing the milk you drink as a 75% cow's milk / 25% soy milk mixture. Do that for 1-2 months, then move to 50% / 50%. After a couple months of that, go to 25% cow's milk and 75% soy milk, and then finally 100% soy milk. After you're used to soy milk, start switching to unsweetened soy milk using the same transition technique. Use stevia to sweeten it, since that won't add calories or refined sugars. In fact, the only major problem with soy milk is that most of the store-bought products are loaded with refined sugars. But you can avoid those by purchasing the increasingly popular "unsweetened" varieties of soy milk, available at most health food stores.

The important thing is that if you're a man, you need to stop thinking about soy milk as a "sissy drink" (a description I've heard from many men) and start realizing that having more hair on your head and being free of prostate cancer is hardly sissy. Let the "macho" guys drink their cow's milk until their hair falls out. You, on the other hand, can prevent both hair loss and prostate cancer by drinking something that's actually good for you!

My recommended soy milk product: unsweetened soy milk from Trader Joe's. It's the best product I've found yet.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
