SOY AS FOOD AND EDIBLE OIL

Soy beans are great for making plastic and paint, but they are deadly as food.

 

Facts About Soy

Over fifty year's worth of clinical trials with soya beans have failed dismally to show that saturated fat or cholesterol restriction lower heart disease risk;

In contrast to less highly-hyped modalities like fish oil, fruit and vegetable-rich diets, Co-enzyme Q10, exercise, etc, no clinical evidence exists to show that soy protein, nor any soy product or derivative, has ever prevented a single heart attack!

A gene from a Brazil nut inserted into soybeans made the soy allergenic to those who normally react to Brazil nuts.

Genetically altered soy currently consumed in the US contains a gene from bacteria. The inserted gene creates a protein that was never before part of the human food supply, and might be allergenic.

Sections of that protein are identical to those found in shrimp and dust mite allergens. According to criteria recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), this fact should have disqualified genetically altered soy from approval.

The sequence of the gene that was inserted into soy has inexplicably rearranged itself over time. The protein it creates is likely to be different than the one intended, and was never subject to any safety studies. It may be allergenic or toxic.

The process of inserting the foreign gene damaged a section of the soy’s own DNA, scrambling its genetic code. This mutation might interfere with DNA expression or create a new, potentially dangerous protein.

The most common allergen in soy is called trypsin inhibitor. Genetically altered soy contains significantly more of this compared with natural soy.

High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by ordinary preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting and long, slow cooking. High phytate diets have caused growth problems in children.

Trypsin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders. In test animals soy containing trypsin inhibitors caused stunted growth.

Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women.

Soy phytoestrogens are potent antithyroid agents that cause hypothyroidism and may cause thyroid cancer. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.

Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed and actually increase the body's requirement for B12.

Soy foods increase the body's requirement for vitamin D.

Fragile proteins are denatured during high temperature processing to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein.

Processing of soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.

Free glutamic acid or MSG, a potent neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing and additional amounts are added to many soy foods.

Soy foods contain high levels of aluminum which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys.

 

What does Soy Milk do to babies?

Disruption of normal sexual development evidenced by changes in onset of puberty.

Onset of early puberty in the U.S. occurred in tandem with increased sales of soy formulas.

Thyroid dysfunction and increased incidence of goitre as phytoestrogens act as endocrine disrupters.

Phytoestrogens are known to induce infertility in animals and possibly in some birds.

Possible links between soy phytoestrogen genistein and infantile leukemia.
