Numerous scientific studies link soy to digestive troubles, malnutrition, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders, as well as heart disease and cancer.
There are two types of soy, fermented or unfermented. Unfermented soy products include tofu, edamame and soy milk, while miso, natto, tempeh and tamari are fermented soy products.
All soybeans (even organic, non-GMO ones) naturally contain antinutrients, toxins and plant hormones.Here are a list of health reason NOT to eat Soybean:
90% all soybeans grown in the United States is genetically modified,thanks to Monsanto the leading producer of GMO foods.
Soybean contains phytoestrogens or plant-based estrogens. These compounds have an estrogen like effect on the body so they block normal estrogen production and have been linked to breast cancer.
Goitrogens are thyroid hormone blockers that can interfere with thyroid hormone production and specifically cause hypothyroidism.
Leads to leaky gut, gas, kindney stones, malnutrition, digestive stress and poor protein digestion.
Soybean has been linked with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, two cognitive health concerns that negatively impact the brain and basic daily functioning.
Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D Deficiencies
Soybean contains a B12 analog that resembles the real B12, these B12 analogs cannot be used by your body the way it would use real B12.
Soybean foods like tofu also increase your body’s vitamin D requirements which can cause you to become deficient of vitamin D.
Soybean products like tofu contain strong enzyme inhibitors, which block the action of the pancreatic enzyme trypsin along with other proteolytic enzymes needed for protein digestion.
Potential Heart Issues
Soybean causes hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), a condition in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick and makes it hard for the heart to pump blood.
