An 8-ounce glass of soy milk contains approximately 20 mg of isoflavones, the phytoestrogen found in soy. One study showed that a dose of 30 mg of isoflavones per day affected thyroid function in Japanese women. Another study showed that American women, who consumed 45 mg per day, demonstrated hormonal disturbances after one month.Birth Control: (Just what men and women need, more fat):
Alzheimer's disease - just what we need to defend our 2nd Amendment Rights: Americans consume TOFU, unfermented soy.
- An infant fed soy formula is getting the hormonal equivalent of five birth control pills per day.
- Until the 1930s, the only place in the USA where you could find soybeans was at your local hardware store -- in your paint and varnish.
- Even after rigorous chemical processing, soy contains substances that can possibly cause breast cancer, serious nutritional deficiencies, and even accelerated brain aging!
- Two of the FDA's own experts warn that the safety concerns regarding soy are still 'largely unanswered.'
- Phytoestrogens in soy can inhibit normal development and can cause reproductive and fertility problems later in life. Recent research implicates these phytoestrogens in the development of Alzheimers' and dementia-they are "brain aging" substances. Modern soy products contain carcinogens and toxins formed during processing and all modern soy foods contain MSG, which causes neurological problems, including violent behavior. - Sally Fallon, President, Price Pottinger Foundation
The soybean did not serve as a food until the discovery of fermentation techniques, some time during the Chou Dynasty. The first soy foods were fermented products like tempeh, natto, miso and soy sauce.This is an extremely controversial subject. You will find pros and cons, but you have to realize that the soy industry, like the oil cartels, has an agenda. Take it from someone who has suffered the indignities of hyperthyroidism and found it came from too much soy and too much aspartame. I'd rather err on the side of good health. I will NOT let go of the FACT that soy was once a banned food in all of Asia.
