4 Strong Reasons to Avoid Soy

Whether you call it soybeans or damame, the bottom line is the same: soy should not be eaten by anyone pursuing good health.

By now, it’s well known in the natural health community that almost all soy is genetically modified, but what is not so well known is that instead of contributing to nutrition, soybeans and most of the products made from them may actually rob the body of nutrients, destroy thyroid function, and cause developmental problems in infants and children.

In the late 1990’s, the FDA allowed the soybean industry to make a health claim about soybeans, and marketers jumped at the chance to capitalize on the event. Since then, sales of soybeans have skyrocketed, and an amazing array of products made with soy has proliferated store shelves.

But contrary to popular belief, soy is not a health food, and now is the time to get off the soy bandwagon. 

In their natural form, soybeans contain phytochemicals that have negative effects on the human body. Three major anti-nutrients found in soy are phytates, enzyme inhibitors, and goitrogens.

All plants have some anti-nutrient properties, but the soybean is especially rich in these chemicals. If they aren’t removed by extensive preparation such as fermentation or soaking in the Chinese way of making natto, tempeh or miso, soybeans are one of the worst foods a person can eat.
