The Menace Everywhere

It’s in everything, and it’s not properly fermented. It has health benefits, and it has health hazards.

 Soy contains trypsin inhibitors that stop your stomach from breaking down the protein; phytic acid, which stops you from absorbing important minerals; nitrosamines, certain types of which cause cancer; and the high levels of aluminium, which accumulates in numerous organs in the body (the brain, lungs, kidneys, thyroid, and liver), and competes with calcium, damaging the skeleton. In babies and toddlers this stunts growth. Soy also disrupts the hormonal balance in infants, and scientific studies show that it may cause infertility and other menstrual problems because of the phytoestrogens it contains.
Now this is only in improperly fermented (or not fermented at all) soy – what we manufacture in America and Canada. It is properly fermented in Asia.

Unfermented Soy

Soy is used in meat substitutes, it is put in cold meats, prepared meats, ground meats – almost anything that has gone through any process at all – prepared dishes, fake seafood, filler for restaurant meals, and countless other things that probably don’t need it.

A few vegetarians I have talked with say that they didn’t eat meat for a certain amount of time, they substituted it with soy, and then they tried it again and they couldn’t eat it – it made them vomit. The above information may be the answer to this. Soy contains trypsin inhibitors which make it difficult for your body to absorb and digest protein. For this reason, if you are a vegetarian, you probably shouldn’t replace meat with unfermented soy. Fermented soy, certainly – go right ahead… it has some health benefits. I personally believe that animal protein is necessary in a diet, and so I would advise not completely replacing the meat, but do what you will – it’s your diet, and your body.

I think I should mention again that unfermented soy is in most baby formula. It can cause unbalanced hormones, which would result in early puberty, which of course doesn’t show up until the children are teens. If you are pregnant, (which, since this is a teen blog, odds are you aren’t) you shouldn’t be eating soy – it contains genistein, which causes problems in fetuses and in children. This may be the reason for some defective babies, miscarriages, and infertility.

Almost everything that we eat prepared contains unfermented soy, but if you avoid it whenever you can, you will likely have less problems now and when you are older.

Humans as a race are slowly killing themselves – and they are completely unaware of it.
