Danger from soy products

  1. Last weekend I was having dinner with my girlfriend in a restaurant with my girlfriend and the menu showed a salad with two vegetarian cutlets. When I go out for dinner I always try to make a conscious choice and this time decided to go for a vegetarian dish.

  1. The cutlets are based on soy and are they actually healthy?

  1. Many people think that soy is by definition healthy because you can find it everywhere in the health food store. However, you certainly don't have to be a vegetarian to get a lot of soy. In fact, if you look closely at the packaging of '' processed food '' you will see that it almost always contains soy as a hidden ingredient.

  1. I decided to do some research on soy and whether it is as healthy as people (and I) think.

  1. Based on my findings, most soy products are NOT healthy and I will explain below:

  1. New studies show that soy is certainly not as healthy as most people think. The research shows that soy can even increase the risk of breast cancer and affect the brain function of babies!

  1. But how is this possible?

  1. When I look at a package of tofu, I see a relatively low proportion of carbohydrates, saturated fats and a lot of protein. You would think it is good for you! It is certainly packed with valuable nutrients. But the â € â € ™ dangerousâ € ™ â € ™ about soy is that it contains a natural chemical compound that increases the hormone estrogen in the body.

  1. This is dangerous because too many hormones from food can be one of the underlying causes of breast cancer. This is confirmed by one of my favorite books on health â € ˜â € ™ 8 weeks to optimum health written by Andrew Weil M.D.

  1. But it doesn't stop there. The hormone estrogen is certainly not beneficial to men. This reduces the amount of testosterone in your body .. not useful for your libido!

  1. In Asian countries, soy has been eaten for 5000 years and is an important source of protein. However, there they came to an important discovery that soy is initially unsuitable for consumption due to too many toxins. That's why they ferment the soy there before they eat it!

  1. The fermentation process of soy removes all toxins and excess hormones making it suitable for consumption!

  1. It is also a fact that in Asian countries soy is eaten in moderate amounts in combination with fish and pork.

  1. Now what is the truth when it comes to soy?

  1. Personally, I believe that the health benefits of soy are highlighted too much. Of course, it is an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals. But it also contains many dangerous components. In addition, the soybeans in America are genetically manipulated for mass production. So it's also wise to know where your soy products originally come from.

  1. I myself ate tofu for a long time because I thought it was a healthier alternative to meat. Â But based on these findings, I decided to only eat fermented soy products.

  1. Fermented soy products are:


  1. It is best to leave the rest. So soy milk, tofu, soy protein shakes, etc. It is always better to leave processed foods as much as possible and focus more on fresh and natural. Also, when buying processed foods, don't forget to look closely at the soy share and where it comes from.
