MYTHS UNVEILED

Many toxic substances are found in one common food ingredient!

They include: oxalic acid, plant estrogens, goitrogens, phytates, protease inhibitors, oxalates. Hemagluttens, thyroid depressing compounds, and potent enzyme inhibitors.

Most North Americans eat it everyday. Over 170 scientific studies confirm the harmfulness of this ingredient. It can cause infertility, immune system disorder, digestive distress, heart disease, accelerated risk of cancers, thyroid dysfunction, ADD/ADHD, and loss of sex drive.

It is one of the top eight allergens, containing 16—30 allergenic proteins, and many experts believe it will soon belong in the top four. It is found in more than 60 per cent of processed and packaged food and nearly 100 per cent of fast foods. Ground beef patties can contain up to 30 per centof this ingredient. Food served to prisoners contains up to 70 per cent of this ingredient.

It is also used in home insulation, erasers, car foam insulation, cardboard adhesive, crayons, modelling dough, carpet backing, paint stripper, stains, sealers, waxes, biodiesel, fertilizers, fungicides, candles, plastics, cloth fiber, and in insecticides. Some feed it to their infants, which can cause puberty in girls as early as age three giving them the equivalent of five birth control pills a day.

Only four countries (Germany, Israel, France, and the British) warn parents not to feed this ingredient to their babies and children.

So what is it?

Soy!

How is it labelled?

Soy protein isolate, soy flour, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, textured vegetable protein, soybean oil, vegetable oil, and tofu.

Confused About Soy?

Soy Dangers Summarized:

• High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by ordinary preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting, and long, slow cooking. High phytate diets have caused growth problems in children.

• Trypsin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders. In test animals, soy containing trypsin inhibitors caused stunted growth.

• Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women.

• Soy phytoestrogens are potent antithyroid agents that cause hypothyroidism and may cause thyroid cancer. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.

• Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed and actually increase the body’s requirement for B12.

• Soy foods increase the body’s requirement for vitamin D.

• Fragile proteins are denatured during high temperature processing to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein.

• Processing of soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.

• Free glutamic acid or MSG, a potent neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing and additional amounts are added to many soy foods.

• Soy foods contain high levels of aluminum, which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys.

The above soy dangers and our Myths & Truths About Soy are available in our Soy Alert! trifold brochure for mass distribution.
