Today, we turn our attention to soy.
I tell you true, that stuff’s poison. It can do a number on you like nobody’s business and you might not even be aware it’s soy that’s causing all your woes.
Lest you object to my going after soy, I’ll agree up front that not all people suffer soy’s dire consequences.
But then, most smokers don’t develop cancer, either. How lucky do you feel?
The top 5 dangers of evil soy
Here’s what you’re facing:
Sickening Soy Danger # 1:
Soy’s loaded with oxalic acid. Think kidney stones–not to mention heart problems, immune deficiency, brain hiccups, etc.
Sickening Soy Danger #2:
Another part of soy’s manifest charms is phytates, which throw a monkey wrench into absorbing protein–along with the vital minerals calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium. We don’t go very far, very well without a goodly supply of protein and minerals.
Sickening Soy Danger #3:
And the phytates are not alone! Soy is estrogenic, so called because it mimics estrogen–keeping the real thing from its proper role whilst causing estrogen dominance–male or female.
It can cause premature puberty in little girls, lifelong low testosterone for little boys, breasts in men and a closetful of symptoms in women.
Estrogen is part of endocrine function, and when it’s out of whack, the rest of the endocrine system ends up in the ditch, too.
Sickening Soy Danger #4:
Plus, soy interferes with thyroid function. Big time. Soy can cause hypothyroid problems all by itself.
Sickening Soy Danger #5:
And soy excites our brain to death. Literally. Which can play havoc with memory. And throw our bodies into a tailspin, inviting disease to come for a visit. Speaking of which, there’s some kind of connection between extreme brain excitement and autoimmune diseases. Right now it’s just an attention-getting coincidence, but research should be coming along.
But, but, but, you say. Soy really helps with menopause symptoms!
And you’re right, but it’s a lot like trimming a hangnail with an out-of-control machete. It may get the job done, but the collateral damage is something else. Choose a safer–and more effective–way.
No soy for you.
