Soy products โ€“ soy is a complex starch that creates sulfide in the body, it in turn eats up the iron and oxygen. Itโ€™s inorganic silica.

Putting it simple… Soy suppresses male testosterone making them act and fell bitchie while throwing female hormones off balance as well suppressing the healing growth pattern in both male and female.

The Dangers of Soy Are Real–and Much Worse Than You Might Think

Promoting soy foods as health foods while ignoring the dangers of soy and soy derivatives should be considered a crime against humanity. If you think this statement is too extreme, read this article to the end, and then see what you think!

The dangers of soy are thoroughly documented in the scientific literature, which makes it hard to believe that many health and fitness communities and counselors, and most health food stores, still promote soy products as ultra-healthy foods.

A Summary of the Dangers of Soy

  • Soybeans and soy products containย high levels of phytic acid, which inhibits assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc.
  • Soaking, sprouting, and long, slow cooking do not neutralize phytic acid.
  • Diets high in phytic acid have been shown toย cause growth problems in children.
  • Tryps7lovejohnson-crispy-fried-tofuin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may causeย pancreatic disorders.ย 
  • Test animals showedย stunted growthย when fed trypsin inhibitors from soy.
  • The plant estrogens found in soy, called phytoestrogens,ย disrupt endocrine function,ย that is, the proper functioning of the glands that produce hormones, and have the potential toย cause infertilityย as well as toย promote breast cancerย in adult women.
  • Hypothyroidism and thyroid cancerย may be caused by soy phytoestrogens.
  • Infant soy formula has been linked toย autoimmune thyroid disease.
  • Soy has been found to increase the body’s need for vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
  • Fragile soy proteins are exposed to high temperatures during processing in order to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein, making themย unsuitable for human digestion.
  • This same process results in theย formation of toxic lysinoalanineย andย highly carcinogenic nitrosamines. (Doesn’t sound like anything anyone would want to eat, does it?)
  • MSG, (also called free glutamic acid), a potent neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing. Many soy products have extra MSG added as well. Soy-ย MSG’s chemical first cousin.
  • Soy foods contain elevated levels ofย toxic aluminum,which negatively effects the nervous system the kidneys and has been implicated in the onset of Alzheimer’s.

Feeding Babies Infant Soy Formula Is Like Giving Them Birth Control Pills

  • It’s been found thatย babies given infant soy formulas have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen than babies fed milk-based formulas.
  • Babies fed exclusively on infant soy formula are receivingย the estrogenic equivalent (based on body weight) of at least four or five birth control pills per day! You read that right. Four or five birth control pills per day! Here’s the reference so you can check this out for yourself. [Irvine, C. et al., “The Potential Adverse Effects of Soybean Phytoestrogens in Infant Feeding”, New Zealand Medical Journal May 24, 1995, p. 318.]
  • There has been an increase ofย delayed physical maturation among boys, includingย lack of development of sexual organs.
  • Conversely, many girls today show signs of puberty, such as breast development and pubic hair, before the age of eight, and some even before the age of three.
  • Both of these abnormal conditions have been linked to the use of soy formulas as well as to exposure to “environmental estrogens” such as PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and DDE (dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene)a breakdown product of DDT.

7lovejohnson-edamame-soybeansI use to enjoy edamame andย crispyย tofuย as a snack but when you know better :) you do better xoย Don’t be fooled thinkingย soy is a tradition food forย Oriental Cultures;ย such as miso, tempeh, natto, shoyu and tamari. (Tofu is not fermented, and falls into the dangerous soy foods category.)ย They consumed these soy foods in small amounts, as a condiment.ย And Trust… The actual soybean consumed today is not the same one used by traditional Oriental cultures.

If this list of the dangers of soy isn’t enough to make you run out the door of your local health food store, keep researching… It gets worse!
