A quick browse through the supermarket reveals a growing trend — soy products are everywhere. Maybe you don’t notice, but if you take the time to read the labels you will quickly discover just how many products contain soy.

Over the past few years, the media has spent a lot of time describing soy as wonderful. Then you have people like Oprah with their own weight issues professing that soy-laden “tofu” or “toffetti” are good and a healthy alterative to full-fat products. Well, the reality says they’re not!

Many soy products are marketed and processed to either resemble or mimic meat or dairy products in some way. Processing does not make a food more nutritious; processing robs food of its nutrients.

The first problem with western soy products is that the soybeans manufactured in the United States have been genetically modified or engineered.

Although most genetically engineered crops in the United States have been evaluated and ‘deemed safe’ by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), the environmental and health implications have yet to be sufficiently determined.

However, the real concern comes from the question, ‘Why genetically modify the soybean in the first place?’

The plant is modified to be resistant to pesticides — pesticides that are designed to kill living organisms. Once the plant is sprayed with the pesticide, the plant becomes laced with toxins. Just because the plant is genetically modified to resist the pesticide doesn’t mean humans are!

So when we ingest a serving of processed soy from America, we also ingest a serving of pesticides that are toxic. This is another MAJOR and unattended problem with the soy plant.

And that’s not even mentioning the plant estrogens!

Cancer patients are being warned to avoid foods rich in soy because they can accelerate the growth of tumours.

“There is evidence to suggest that women with existing breast cancer or past breast cancer should be cautious in consuming large quantities of soy foods or phyto-oestrogen supplements,”

Still don’t believe it?

And if you still don’t believe me, perhaps the letter to US President Barack Obama from Sally Fallon Morell, President, Weston A. Price Foundation will change your mind.

Here’s an extract from the original letter:

“Soy protein and soy flour are toxic, especially in large amounts. The US food and Drug Administration lists 288 studies on its database showing the toxicity of soy. Numerous studies show that soy consumption leads to nutrient deficiencies, digestive disorders, endocrine disruption and thyroid problems”

  1. Not only that but they are now modifying plants to produce their own insecticides. When crops were only sprayed with poisons at least there was a withholding period and you could wash/ peel and remove the poisons. Now they are Integral  to the plant and can’t be removed. No thanks..
