1. Making soy milk does less damage to the environment than raising cows to produce cows milk. It produces less greenhouse gasses, wastes less water, causes less water pollution and less land pollution. It also uses less land.

2. Producing cows milk on factory farms is very cruel to the cows. They are kept indoors in tiny enclosures, and hooked up to milking machines that cause them to have inflamed and infected udders. The cows are made pregnant frequently and then their calves are taken away from them after they give birth. They are given hormones and antibiotics to make them produce as much as 10 times the milk that they would produce naturally. Soy milk is cruelty free.

3. Cows milk contains hormones and antibiotics that may have negative health effects on humans.

4. Soy milk doesn't contain any cholesterol. This may be better for you if you have high cholesterol or other risk factors for Heart disease.

5. Soy milk contains natural hormones that mimic the effects of Estrogen. This can be helpful if you are having menopause symptoms, such as hot flashes.

6. Soy milk doesn't contain lactose. It can be easier to digest if you have lactose intolerance.

7. On the other hand, most soy milk has added sugar. Get the unsweetened kind. Stir or shake it before you pour it in your glass, because the soy settles to the bottom of the container.

8. It's cheaper than cow's milk.

9. It stays fresh longer in the refrigerator.

(That's all I can think of, but it's quite a lot.)

It all depends on who is doing the drinking of the milk: If you are a baby human, the very best thing to drink is mother's milk. If you are a baby cow, the very best thing to drink is cow's milk. If you are a baby soy bean, drink soy milk. (Sorry for the bad joke) The truth is that for babies, breast is best. Without doubt, the longer a baby nurses at its mother's breast the greater the benefits it will receive. Don't forget that the benefits of breast feeding extend past nutrition. There are huge short term emotional health, immunological, long term mental health, and long term physical health benefits that accrue with breast feeding. The nursing mother also gains health benefits from nursing. It is especially true that these secondary benefits can only come through breast feeding and that a bottle full of Bessy the Cow's milk will never meet.

Rice milk is a safe alternative to milk for individuals who are lactose intolerant, who are allergic to soy products, or who have PKU. For normally healthy people there is no real benefit to drinking rice milk over dairy milk.

It should be noted that some rice milk manufacturers fortify their products with additional vitamins and minerals.
