Naturally, soy milk is far less expensive than prescription drugs, and there are a great number of health benefits derived from consuming products made from soy. But does this latest research mean that men suffering from hair loss should switch to soy milk?
Here's my take: soy milk may be able to stop hair loss, but that's only part of the picture. Hair loss also results from premature aging, which is caused by consuming metabolic disruptors in foods and drinks. These are chemical ingredients like white flour, high fructose corn syrup, sodium nitrite, hydrogenated oils, aspartame and MSG that slowly poison the human body. One of the best ways to avoid hair loss is to start choosing healthy whole foods instead of eating the standard junk foods consumed by most people.
Another point here is that soy milk is good for you regardless of whether it helps with hair loss. I consume it on a daily basis and wouldn't think of touching cow's milk. Cow's milk, it turns out, causes chronic sinus infections, asthma, constipation and a whole host of other health problems that all fall under the category of "stagnation." Giving up cow's milk and switching to soy milk is a good nutritional strategy for both men and women regardless of their risk of hair loss.
The bottom line? Soy milk may in fact help with hair loss, and that's one reason to start drinking it, but there are many, many more. And, frankly, it may not stop your hair loss outright, either. But it sure doesn' hurt to try it and see. Give yourself several months to determine the result.
