Our modern society has proclaimed soy milk as the healthiest milk for years. Even most doctors and nutritional experts recommend it as a better milk option. From 1992 to 2006, sales went up from $300 million to almost $4 billion!
However, nothing could be further from the truth. Around 170 scientific studies prove the dangers of soy. Soy products such as soy milk are very toxic and can cause kidney stones, thyroid problems, brain damage and breast cancer.

Health dangers of soy include:
Weakened Immune System
Drinking Soy Milk Daily Destroys Your Thyroid, Causes Brain Damage and Kidney Stones
1.Soybeans contain large quantities of natural toxins or “antinutrients”.
Soybeans are dangerously high in natural toxins called anti-nutrients. In fact, just two glasses of soy milk daily can alter a woman’s natural monthly cycle.
2. Soy milk contains goitrogens which block the synthesis of thyroid hormones and interfere with iodine metabolism. A 1991 study revealed that eating only 2 tablespoons of soy a day for 3 months caused thyroid suppression. (Nippon Naibunpi Gakkai Zasshi 1991, 767: 622-629)!
3. Soy has been found to increase the body’s need for vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
4 Soybeans also contain haemagglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that causes your red blood cells to clump.
5. 90% of soy is genetically modified.
6. Soybeans and soy products contain extremely high levels of phytic acid, which interferes with the absorption of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc.
7 Soy contains a substance that resembles vitamin B12 which cannot be processed by your body. This is why most people that eat soy daily are Vitamin B12 deficient.
8. Soy is really high in phytoestrogens, which are plant compounds that act like estrogens in the body. Several animal studies (here and here) found that soy phytoestrogens can cause breast cancer.
9. Soy contains aluminum. Aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and has a damaging effect on the kidneys.
This is a very prejudiced, poorly researched, and inaccurate article. The culprits in soy are in isolated soy products. Soy milk is not this. Where is this aluminium coming from, what are these “natural toxins,” why do you accuse organic non-gmo products (like Silk Milk in the picture represented) of being genetically modified, what high temperatures, etc? Soy milk is not produced at greatly high temperatures, but temperatures just high enough to destroy the “antinutrients” you mentioned. Plant estrogens can be healthy for you. The list goes on and on. I make my own soy milk from organic, non-gmo beans (like Laura Beans) and it is not an unhealthy product.
Elizabeth! I’ve done a lot of research on soy. Take a look at these studies:http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/content/5/10/785.short
Elizabeth, you arer not a breast cancer survivor! Those of us with the BRCA gene KNOW soy mimics estrogen which flips on this aggressive breast cancer gene. Soy is deadly and should be avoided. Anya thank you for your article.
Kathryn! Thank you so much for sharing. And I am sorry you had to go through this. Blessings. xx
I agree with you, my grandmother and my best friend had a breast cancer, they never dunk a soy milk, but I know that they drank cows milk and ate cheese and other dairy products, the cheese, and other dairy products are causing cancer!
Hi I have also lost my mom when she was 50 due to breast cancer. And being her daughter aged 45 I m terrified about breast cancer. Can someone show me the correlation between diary products to breast cancer and papers written about it. I dont consume soy products but I do consume milk and diary products. Anya thank you for all the valuable info
Hi Cagla! I am sorry to hear about your mom. Organic grass fed dairy products do not cause cancer. If you do consume dairy, it’s better to go with fermented dairy such as kefir or plain yogurt!
Thank you for your article. Does this also include tofu?
Hi Ruth! My pleasure! Yes, unfortunately, since tofu is made from soy beans.
Hi. What about organic edamame?
Hi Lin! Unfortunately, these are still soy beans. If you do decide to consume soy beans, make sure they are fermented. The fermentation process gets rid of all those anti nutrients.
Japanese and Chinese, they eat lot of Soy products every day ! Why there is less cancer than North America and European countries ? Indonesian Tempeh suppose to be a super food, again made with fermented Soy ! Just makes me wonder ! I like to read your health articles !! Thank you !
Someone please explain to me how soy does not affect huge populations in Asia (where i lived and worked for a couple of years). Most asians live off soy beans, soy milk, tofu, soy yogurts. Its in their vegetarian proteins used to substitute the use of animal products. They are not plaqued as we westerners are with cancer and chronic diseases. Well they were not previously. Now that fast food chains have made their way to Asia, you can see more of them suffering from obesity and western diseases.
Just thinking out loud here!!!
Hi, does the sameaoply to Oat Milk
Hi Chris! Just make sure it’s organic non gmo!
I agree with Deerdre and Aruna. I lived in Japan 3 years and ate lots of Soya products. Also many years later. I understand that for breast cancer survivors, it is phytooestregenuc and should be avoided; I agree with the organic dairy and fermented products. I do not drink Soya milk which is sweetened and taste really chalky. But I think edamame is healthy, everything in moderstion; otherwise how could you explain all Asians not developing thyroid issues and other cancers? They also eat seaweed, lots of fish, reduced animal fats and grains..
The last comment stated “all Asians not developing thyroid issues” , well that just isn’t the case. I have read many scientific studies coming out of Japan discussing thyroid disease. Particularly Graves Disease.
