SOY Why is this so bad for me??

SOY Why is this so bad for me??


Consuming soy products is a modern phenomena. Traditionally soy has not been seen as a food, but due to chemical processing humans have created ‘food’ products from soy. Like TVP textured vegetable protein, tofu, soy milk, and soy protein powders.

These have been touted as health foods but they are far from the truth. The benefits of soy have been pushed into the population by corporations and the health food industry. 

Soy is a bean, high in phytic acid which stops the body assimilating essential minerals.

Calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by soaking, sprouting or slow cooking.

High in phytoestrogens, soy is an endocrine disruptor. Causing the natural hormone release in our bodies to become dysfunctional. Cancer and infertility are two of the major problems with soy ingestion. They can also disrupt the activity of the thyroid. Phytoestrogens are goitrogens.

Soy foods increase the body's requirement for Vit D and Vit B12.

Soy foods are high in aluminum, which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys.

Scientists Daniel Sheehan and Daniel Doerge studied the results of the consumption of soy and have reported that the extra estrogen consumed has created an increased incidence of epithelial hyperplasia, a precursor to malignancies in women.

Soy is also known to alter the menstrual cycle of some women, and reduce the testosterone in men.

The whole process of getting soy into an ‘edible’ form from the soaking of the raw beans, to the curd being spray dried at high temperatures to create the incomplete protein powder is unnatural. It is also the most genetically modified crop we have on this planet.

It still amazes me that this poison is still being sold in many forms:

- Soy protein powder

- Soy Milk

- Tofu

It feels like we have been coerced into believing that this is a food let alone a healthy food. The Big Food industry is not concerned with our health and wellbeing, only by convincing the population a toxic product that is perfectly ok for us to consume and ‘better’ for us than perhaps real dairy products, it can line its pockets with the evil spoil that is the money that is being made with this product.

The only ‘safe’ soy products are the fermented ones, made with non GMO soy, miso and tempeh. The fermentation largely neutralizes the phytic acid but the goitrogens or thyroid inhibitors remain intact. So care should be taken with these products not to consume regularly.

I encourage you to ask the reasons why your friends prefer soy lattes, and tofu to real milk and meat.
