I will check out the Viva site about milk, thanks for link. I have just become a member, but haven't had chance to check out all the information yet.
Out of interest, what book are you reading? I have just started the China Study - I would recommend it if you haven't already read it.
Indeed they have, it is quite incredible they have bene able to get away with it.
The book I'm reading is this one http://www.vegansociety.com/shop/pro...roducts_id=153
Plant Based Nutrition and Health by Dr Stephen Walsh, does exactly what it says on the cover. I've only recently become a vegan so I thought it would be good to get some additional info on how to balance my diet. Despite the scientific tone it's very accessible and challenges every pre-conception that omnis have about the vegan diet. I highly recommend it.
I'll check out the China Study too.
The Viva site is pretty good and well worth trawling through.
