Even though many people are suggested by mainstream nutritional guidelines to consume soy and soy milk, they are not being informed that this milk is actually far from healthy.
There are numerous reasons why you should avoid soy and soy products and today we will present to you some of them.
First of all, soybeans contain haemagglutinin, a cloth-causing substance, and phytoestrogens that can impede endocrine function and may cause breast cancer and infertility in women. Soy products are also rich in aluminum which is extremely harmful towards the kidneys and the nervous system and it is also linked to the incidence of Alzheimer’s.
Soybeans are also rich in the natural toxins known as antinutrients and by only consuming 2 glasses of soy milk a day may greatly change the menstrual cycle in women. Furthermore, during their production procedure, fragile soy proteins are exposed to high temperatures, aiming at producing textured vegetable protein and soy protein isolate, making them a serious threat to your health. Soy also causes Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 deficiency, and last but not least, soybeans and soy products have significantly high levels of phytic acid, which prevents the assimilation of copper, iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.
