Problems With Soy:
Last week I explained the huge difference between Asian soy vs. non-fermented American soy.
Today I’m back to uncover 5 scary reasons you should consider limiting soy in your diet.
But I can’t take credit for this information on problems with soy because I ethically stole it straight from the world’s top Food Detective, Nicky P.
Let’s get to it…
5 Big Problems With Raw Soy
Problems with Soy 1: Natural Toxins
The soy plant itself contains lots of natural toxins that are linked to several health conditions, including potentially screwing up your hormonal balance.
Natural toxins: Impair your digestive system.
Phytates: Prevent you from absorbing certain minerals.
Enzyme inhibitors: Hinder protein digestion.
Goitrogens: Interfere with your thyroid function and metabolism.
Phytoestrogens: (Isoflavones) genistein and daidzein, which mimic and sometimes block the hormone estrogen.
Haemaggluttin: Causes red blood cells to clump together and inhibits oxygen take-up and growth.
Problems with Soy 2: Processing
Most raw soy products go through heavy, high temperature processing.
The manufacturing is done without any concern for keeping the protein quality intact or the final product free of contaminants.
Your average soy product may contain:
– Heavy metals that could lead to serious health problems.
– Cheap protein that’s been refined to the point it’s rendered useless.
– Added fattening ingredients like sugar, artificial sweeteners, and synthetic vitamins.
Problems with Soy 3: Excessive Quantities
You probably consume a lot more soy than you even realize.
Most food products that are labeled “healthy” these days contain soy in the form of soy protein or soybean oil, which makes up a significant amount of American’s daily calories.
Problems with Soy 4: Hidden GMOs
At least 91% of all soy grown in the US as been genetically modified.
While studies linking GMOs with health problems and gut flora destruction are still very controversial, the fact is that dozens of countries have already labeled or banned GMOs and are treating this new technology with precaution.
Meanwhile, in the US in Canada, it is estimated that 70% of all food products contain GMOs.
Scary, but true.
Problems with Soy 5: Allergies
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates soy is among the nine most common food allergens for pediatric and adult food allergy patients.
If you’re allergic to any food – no matter how healthy it can potentially be – eating it will increase inflammation in your body, which means longer recovery from exercise and more fat storage.
And if you think this doesn’t apply to you, be cautious.
Many experts predict soy will soon become one of the most common allergens.
But remember that “fermented” soy contains 99% less allergens than raw soy.
Another reason to make sure you choose the right kind.
So HOW do you KNOW if you’re eating the right kind of soy?
