Okay, I promised a blog on this, I just haven’t had the time nor do I currently. But I will summarize:
DO NOT COUNSEL ANY MOTHER TO GIVE THEIR INFANTS SOY-BASED MILK TO REPLACE COW’S OR BREAST MILK!
Did you get that? Infants who are fed soy based milk have 20,000 times the amount of estrogen as non-soy fed babies. It also has high amounts of manganese and aluminum, toxic levels of them. What I will do is have a list of articles below and a video to watch. There are safe forms of soy, but you must read the articles or watch the video.
Please become educated on this! Please. Take note that Dr. Mercola has some very interesting video blurbs on artificial sweeteners that will enlighten your well-being as well.
The following two links are for SPLENDA… keep going down for soy.
These are the Soy articles
The following article is actually a plethora of other articles… incredible!
A quote from the article:
We have therefore done a feeding study with SFM in marmoset monkeys. We chose this species in particular because more than 80 percent of pregnancies are (non-identical) twin pregnancies, and this allowed us to use one twin as a control (fed with cow's formula milk) and his brother was fed with SFM.
We chose to study only males because all male primates, including the human, exhibit a period after birth and lasting up to six months or more, in which the testes are very active and when levels of the male sex hormone 'testosterone' in blood can reach adult levels. This period is called 'the neonatal testosterone surge.' Nothing like it occurs in females.
To our surprise, we found that twins fed with SFM showed major suppression of their 'neonatal testosterone surge' when compared with their (control) twin brothers. This change was associated with a large increase in the numbers of Leydig cells in the testicles of the SFM-fed neonatal marmosets, which was surprising as these are the cells that make the testosterone. There is every reason to suppose that human male babies fed with SFM will show a similar suppression of their neonatal testosterone surge.
