Many of the foods we eat today are made with partially hydrogenated oils such as soybean oil. Why? Because it’s a cheap, mass-produced oil that companies use in packaged, processed foods.
These oils are very toxic; they can cause diabetes, cancer, heart disease and obesity.
Soybean products are partly to blame for our country’s health problems. Soybean products can cause heart disease, interferes with the thyroid function which leads to slower metabolism and, therefore, weight gain.
One study looked at a diet high in soybean oil. The mice fed significant amounts of soybean oil had weight gain; developed diabetes, and insulin resistance. Additionally, the soybean oil diet triggered cancer, inflammation and obesity-related genes (study).
Heated Soybean Oil is Very Carcinogenic
Due to the unstable composition of omega-6 vegetable oils such as soybean oil, exposing it to heat is an awful idea.
A recent study fed female rats either soybean oil or ghee; the soybean oil group developed higher tumor incidence, larger tumor size, and a more rapid onset of cancer (study).
Soybean Oil Causes Heart Disease
Despite the food industry’s claims that soybean oil is good for your heart, the evidence suggests the very opposite. Soybean oil damages the heart:
Soybean oil is predominantly a polyunsaturated fat, thus, it’s very unstable. Heating causes their fats to oxidize. Consuming oxidized fats has a severe impact on cholesterol and blood pressure. It leads to inflammation and heart disease (study).
Soy is actually toxic to humans.
Soybean oil contains a poisonous chemical called PHG. It damages your nervous and digestive systems, causes your blood to clot, and can cause memory loss.
Now you have scientifically proven reasons to avoid soy altogether.
