Diet is a personal preference for most people and most of us feel attacked when our food choices are questioned, I know it probably goes against everything we hear about soy these days, but I’m here today to tell you that nobody should be eating soy food products. In fact, over 170 scientific studies confirm the dangers of soy. Soy Causes Breast and Ovarian Cancers!
The Most Awful Side Effects of Eating Soy
1. Soy Disrupts Our Sex Hormones
Soy is loaded with phyotestrogens. This means that it contains natural compounds that mimic estrogen in our bodies. The soy industry makes you believe that phytoestrogens are good for you but nothing could be further from the truth. Independent studies have found that consuming phytoestrogens is very dangerous for the human body.
In fact, the primary cause of breast cancer, infertility, and low libido is estrogen dominance. Then, it just makes sense not to eat foods high in estrogen, right?
A 1994 study on soy formula for babies proves that they are consuming the hormonal equivalent of up to 10 contraceptive pills a day. Did you know that Israel, Switzerland, the UK, and New Zealand have all warned about the use of soy formula for babies?
“Female newborns who are orally exposed to genisin, the glycosylated form of genistein (soy phytoestrogen) experienced harm to the reproductive system in the form of “delayed vaginal opening… abnormal estrous cycles, decreased fertility, and delayed parturition.” (Environmental Health Perspective 2009 Dec;117(12):1883-9).

2. Soy Causes Breast and Ovarian Cancers
Soy contains a high amount of Isoflavones, which are plant estrogens. High levels of estrogen have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.
Consuming estrogens even at low concentrations were discovered to stimulate breast cells much like DDT to increase enzymatic activity which leads to breast cancer (Environmental Health Perspectives 1997 Apr;105 (Suppl 3):633-636).
DETOX TOXINS FROM YOUR BODY
Fortunately, it is quite easy and inexpensive to cleanse your body of toxic substances by using foods in your diet such as spirulina.

CHICKPEAS , is that the same as soy ?
Hi Nick! No, Though Chickpeas are legumes as well, they are not as bad.
It sounds as if this “info” came straight out of the propaganda that the meat and dairy industries have been making up for decades out of fear they will lose business to soy. Soy is a perfectly good food and any claims that this plant can interfere with our animal hormones is just nonsense!
