Little Known Dangers of Soy
Soy is not a health food. It should be avoided completely or eaten only on rare occasions and in fermented forms. The soybean is now being linked to breast cancer, thyroid disease, menstrual and fertility issues, as well as severe allergies, compromised immunity and brain damage.Many countries, including Britain, Switzerland and Israel, have issued warnings to their citizens about the dangers of soy and soy infant formula. Due to millions spent on marketing, the food industry has managed to convert the toned, the narcissistic, and the liberal.
Over the past two decades, soy has been widely promoted as a miracle food that can prevent heart disease, fight cancer, reduce hot flashes and build strong bones. As a result, soy’s sales are billions in the US. Although growth of soy sales has slowed, sales aren’t reducing and the soy industry has been stepping up its marketing of products all over the world. The marketing of soy as a health food has been so successful that few people realize that respected scientists have warned that possible benefits should be weighed against soy’s risks. Even researchers working for the soy industry have admitted at soy symposia that the ‘marketing is way ahead of the science’.
