Soy Is Bad For You!

Okay, I promised a blog on this, I just haven’t had the time nor do I currently. But I will summarize:


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.

  • Great Website on SOY

  • The following two links are for SPLENDA… keep going down for soy.

  • One of the Biggest Lies About Artificial Sweeteners

  • These are the Soy articles

  • Soy Formula Can Reduce Testosterone Levels (by Dr. Richard Sharpe)
  • Messing with Manhood: Testosterone and Soy

  • A Great Article – A Must Read – Especially If You Are A Pregnant Mother; The Study Was Done By: Researchers in the Center conducted the studies presented for Women’s Health and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, The Centre for Toxicology at the University of Calgary in Canada, and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University in North Carolina.

  • The following article is actually a plethora of other articles… incredible!

  • Soy, Homosexuality, And Sexual Identity Disorder ("The Debate")
  • Infant Twin Studies
  • 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.
