In an effort to educate please allow me to write a few words on Soy and the dangers associated with Soy. Soy bean products are feminizing boys and disrupting hormonal balance of young girls and women. When you eat a lot of products containing soy, you are consuming substantial quantities of phyto-estrogen. Estrogen is known as a female hormone because of its dominance in women, but both sexes have it. If you are a woman who is eating an abundance of soy, you are flooding your system with a substance that it can't handle the surplus. If you are a man consuming large amounts of soy, you are suppressing your masculinity and stimulating your "female side."
Estrogen being a hormone and having too much can cause breast cancer and yes prostate cancer. Thousands of studies link soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility, cancer and heart disease. Americans rarely hear any negatives about soy, thanks to the shrewd public relations campaigns waged by Archer Daniels Midland, Protein Technologies and sadly to say the FDA, who in 1999 signed their approval of the health claim that soy protein lowers cholesterol; for this reason soy maintains a “healthy image.” In our clinic we help our clients to become healthy first, by empowering them with knowledge.
As adults, we are developed and chances are we will be able to fight off some of the damaging effects of soy. Testing and becoming involved with hormone balance with our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program is vital for both men and women.
Babies are not so fortunate. Research is now showing that when a baby is fed soy formula, they are receiving the equivalent of five birth control pills a day. A baby’s endocrine system just can’t cope with that kind of massive assault. Soy is feminizing and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis. It can also create sexual confusion and it is even thought to cause homosexuality.
Before doctors knew about the long term effects of soy, they thought it would reduce hot flashes, prevent cancer and heart disease and save millions in the third world from starvation. Now we know it is a classic example of a cure that is worse than a disease. In 2000 research showed that a soy based diet at any age can lead to a weak thyroid, which commonly produces heart problems and excess body fat.
Recent research on rats shows testicular atrophy, infertility and uterus enlargement. This helps to explain the infertility epidemic and the sudden growth of fertility clinics. But this is too little, too late, by the time a soy damage infant has grown to adulthood and wants to marry, it’s too late to get fixed by a fertility clinic.
And even worse, there is now scientific evidence that estrogen ingredients in soy products may be boosting the rapidly rising incidence of leukemia in children. The latest count indicates a 27% jump of new cases.
Perhaps less than 10% of the public is aware that soybeans are a debated topic in medical circles. Pediatricians and other doctors are starting to see a growing parade of patients suffering from serious symptoms that were quite rare a generation ago.
