Q: Is soy milk safe, here?

I know the milk here is of a terrible standard and quite possibly dangerous, but I need coffee, and my coffee needs milk, so there's no avoiding it.

 

I've been considering attempting to develop a taste for soy milk, in the hope it's a healthier alternative... but are there and health standard issues with the soy milk?

Nothing bads been said about soy milk at the moment but who knows.  One week its dont eat oranges, the next its milk, or oil or bread.  As far as I know soy milk is ok at present but dont blame me if they suddenly announce one brand had rat poison in all along.

At present time, there are no comments about adultering soy milk sold as milk.  But sinced in China I do not trust even my shadow (and in many other places too), what I do is to buy soy beans, and one of those machines to make soy milk with.  Since beans must be soaked in water for 8 hours prior to extracting the milk in the machine, I am sure they are relatively free of contaminants, and that is the soy milk I drink.

Maybe investing on a soy milk producing machine is more that what you were looking for, but for health and peeace of mind is well worth it

I just had dinner at KFC and drank a big ol' glass of Soy milk to wash down my zinger® chickenburger. Tasted pretty good.

 

I think it is relatively safe but I wouldn't get a glass of soy milk from some random street vendor.

Shouldn't it be soy juice?  I've never seen a soybean with nipples.  Just saying...

Jnusb416:

I think they call it soy milk back home because it looks like milk. Here they translate it as bean juice.

MrTibbles:

That's what I'd assume as well.  I still find the term weird though.

If you are in Beijing or Shanghai there are places that sell the best soy milk ever, Silk from America, it is awesome and sweet. 

 

If you dont have that, just go to starbucks and buy soy milk from that place, that is what i usually do.

desperate times, desperate measures, you want to lease our land and make it more fertile and build roads to get the product out for us and we get to keep the land and not have to pay for the roads, sure come on in. 20 percent of the people in the world to feed and 9 percent of the land, mathematical hunger insanity.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
