On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, it’s time to compare and analyze which milk is healthier, almond milk vs soy milk.
That’s right, it’s back.
It’s Food Wars time baby.
Food Wars is a segment that puts two foods head-to-head, to see which one should be in your kitchen, and which one should be in the garbage.
So in today’s battle, it is almond milk vs soy milk.
Which type of milk do you think is healthier?
Before you read any further, scroll down and tell me your guess in the comment section below.
Alright, it’s time to ring the bell and find out.
Let’s do this.
First up, is soy milk.
Where should I start with this one?
In a 2011 study from the journal of Nutrition And Cancer, soy milk was shown to stimulate the growth of breast cancer.
Most soy grown in the United States is GMO soy, making it a highly genetically modified food.
Soy is also one of the highest pesticide sprayed foods.

The overconsumption of soy may also affect the hormonal balance of both men and women.
This means women may be at risk for:
When it comes to men, we may be at risk for:
Hello man boobs.
This is because soy contains phytoestrogens which can mimic estrogen in the body, the same way as BPAs do.
With all this said, it’s not looking good for you soy milk.
Next up, welcome almond milk.
Almond milk is derived from the nut, Mr. Almond.
By now, most of us know the health benefits associated with almonds.
But did you know in that same 2011 study in the journal of Nutrition and Cancer, they found that almond milk suppressed and decreased the growth of prostate cancer by more than 30%.
Almond milk is also high in vitamins and minerals, including:
But, if you’re buying almond milk from the grocery store, make sure you buy the unsweetened version.
Sweetened versions can be filled with all kinds of fattening sugars.
This a better option than store bought almond milk.
But for the occasional smoothie, unsweetened store bought brands of almond milk are fine.
With all this said, the clear winner of this Food Wars battle is almond milk.
It’s time to throw that soy milk into the garbage.
