Is Soy Bad? Is Soy Healthy? Soy is in Everything.

Is Soy Bad? Is Soy Healthy? Soy is in Everything.

Okay. Maybe not everything, but soy can be found in tens of thousands of popular food products. In addition to soy milk and tofu, soy can be found in baby food, baby formula, ice cream, chocolate, bread, protein shakes, meal replacement shakes, soups, sauces, breakfast cereals, canned tuna, protein bars, fast food burgers, fast food pizza, lunch meats, lemonade mix, margarine, spreads, orange juice, ravioli, hot chocolate, bottled fruit juice, dietary supplements and much more.

Why is soy in just about everything? Two Big Reasons:
1. It’s Cheap
2. It can be used to get you hooked.  (see “Effects of MSG? What food is MSG in?http://knockoutweightlossprinciples.com/2012/lose-weight/effects-of-msg-what-food-is-msg-in)

Please allow me to simplify and explain why we are getting such a mixed message about soy. Is soy bad? Is soy healthy? Many messages tout soy as a miracle health food. Many messages tout soy a huge source of disease? Can both be correct?

In general, how we consume soy in the United States is NOT healthy, but for the Japanese it is a big part of their superior health and longevity. Why? What is the difference? Two Big Reasons:
1. Most soy in Japan is fermented. Most soy in the United States is not.
2. Most soy in Japan is whole and organic. Most soy in the United States is genetically modified and processed with heat, pressure and chemical solvents. Most soy in the United States is isolated and not whole.

My recommendation: If you are going to eat soy, then please get organic fermented soy products like miso, tempeh, natto, shoyu and tamari.

Effects of soy when it is not fermented:
• Impairs thyroid function
• Impairs vitamin and mineral absorption
• Impairs digestion because of enzyme inhibitors
• Impairs oxygen absorption
• Has phytoestrogens that can wreak havoc on your hormonal balance

Other Dangers of Soy:
• Can cause pancreatic enlargement
• Can cause cancer
• Can cause DNA and chromosome damage

Read the label. Other names for soy:
• Mono-diglyceride
• Soya
• Soja
• Yuba
• TSF (textured soy flour)
• TSP (textured soy protein)
• TVP (textured vegetable protein)
• Textured plant protein
