Why Soy Is Bad For You

It makes me wonder what we’re doing to our kids when we feed them anything processed. (don’t get me wrong, I’m not afraid to say you want some mac-n-cheese with that chocolate bar?) It’s almost a certainty that if you eat any processed food, you’re eating soy. If you eat a piece of bread, you’re eating soy (usually soybean oil, or soy flour). The vegetable oil you cook with? Soy. It’s no longer corn oil. Even if you have glass of pasteurized milk, the cow that gave that milk was most likely fed soy.

Have you ever wondered about soy?  It’s promoted as the miracle food that will feed the world while at the same time prevent and cure all manner of diseases.

But what if all you’ve read about soy is nothing but a multi-million dollar marketing strategy based on scanty facts, half-truths and lies?

Most people remain unaware that soy is known to contain an array of potent chemical toxins. The modern manufacturing processes of high-profit industries make no effort to remove these potent toxins. High levels of phytic acid, trypsin inhibitors, toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines are all present in soy products.

Phytoestrogens that disrupt endocrine function and are potent antithyroid agents are present in vast quantities in soy, including the potentially devastating isoflavone Genistein. Infants exclusively fed soy-based formula have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen compounds in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula, the estrogenic equivalent of at least five birth control pills per day. Premature development of girls has been linked to the use of soy formula, as has the underdevelopment of males. Infant soy formula has been linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.

Soy is linked to infertility, breast cancer, hypothyroidism, thyroid cancer, and many other disorders.

“Imagine drugs that are known, by years of scientific documentation, to be both carcinogenic and to also cause DNA and chromosome damage being prescribed and administered through the food supply to populations of many countries around the world without the knowledge or consent of the individuals consuming these foods … with no way to track dosage, individual reactions, or harmful side-effects … and without any concern for some people’s increased vulnerability to these drugs, such as cancer patients.  It sounds crazy, but that is exactly what is happening around the world when Soy is added to our food supply. Soy contains the scientifically documented carcinogenic and DNA damaging and chromosome damaging natural chemicals genistein and daidzein.” True Health, the magazine of Carotec Inc., Naples, Florida.  May/June 2004.

“(Soyfoods) are not nutrients. They are drugs.”

How could anyone get away with this?
