What were your ancestors eating? I was asked that question and I really thought about it. You know what? They were eating clean food, but all my grandparents never ate a salad in their lives and lived disease free. I get raw milk (certified by state). Cheese too. The whole soy thing is really blown up out of proportion. We took a potentially good thing like fermented soy products and turned it into a bandwagon of soy powders, pills and artificial food products (meat substitutes). Our people were not eating soy foods, but were actually eating meats, milks, vegetables in season, some breads, but with one difference----clean.

indole 3 carbinol (I3C)

Indole 3 carbinol is comprised of the cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, etc) and is supposed to block the pathways that can cause breast cancer. My naturopath has me on it; 200mg twice a day. I3C does not cause breast cancer.

As for dairy, unless one is a calf we don't need milk. That's a huge falacy promoted by the Milk Industry. Broccoli has lots of calcium, so do many other veggies. Check it out.

I still can't find any info here about anyone taking the I3C.
