Soy Dangers--The Truth Will Set You Free

  1. Soy foods increase the body's requirement for vitamin D.
  2. MSG , a powerful neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing and added to scores of soy foods.
  3. Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed and actually increase the body's need for B12.
  4. Processing soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines. Yummy.
  5. Soy foods contain high levels of aluminum which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys.
  6. High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.
  7. Babies fed soy formula have 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen compounds in their blood than babies fed breast milk.
  8. Baby's exclusively fed soy milk formula receive the equivalent of 5 birth control pills per day.
  9. Soy phytoestrogens are powerful anti-thyroid agents.

Fermented soy products like Tempeh and Miso are the only soy products Integrative Physicians suggest.
