The Real Truth About Soy


Soy is good for you, right? Yes? Well, I use to think this way too. The way it is advertised would make it seem true, but I found out that was the complete opposite. This may be kind of shocking being how common of an ingredient that is listed on the back of food that is sold in stores. Peanut butter, crackers, juice, baked beans, canned vegetables, candy, cookies, milk, syrup, tartar sauce, mayonnaise, bread, meat I could go on but if you don’t believe me check your cabinet hopefully you don’t have junk food in there, but if you do you will see some form of soy listed in the ingredient section on the back. As soon as you see anything with the word “soy” in it at the store or in your house or just anywhere do not consume it.  As I became more health conscious, I began asking more questions and I discovered the real truth about soy and here are some things that I learned:


Element number 12, the silvery white metal, one of the principal cations governing electrochemical properties of the living system. It is also an important component of special steels and magnetic alloys. For Subway “Soybeans are also processed by acid washing in aluminum tanks, which can leach aluminum into the final soy product, and may contain unsafe levels of manganese as well.” [1] Soy formula has up to 80 times more level of magnesium than in human breast milk, which is not safe. [2]

Breast cancer

Malignant neoplasm of breast, that is the leading cause of death in women. Genetically modified soy that does harm to the body that causes many negative outcomes and breast cancer is one that leads to it.


From the year 1992 till 2006 soybean increased dramatically, for the use of being put in products from 300 million to at least 4 billion dollars in such a short time. This was stated by the Soyfood Association of North
America.The dramatic increase came by no accident. The shift was influenced by advertising. Being soy is a huge filler food in American products hint’s something similarly advertised as “Now made with real meat!”. That would make one think who questions things what was it made with before…


A substance that is a viral protein. An agglutinin that clumps red blood cells. Agglutin is an antibody that causes clumping or agglutination of the bacteria or other cells which either stimulate the formation of the agglutination or contain immunologically similar reactive material. This in soy and those are the effects that it has by containing hemagglutinin.

Baby formula

It is said that around 25% of babies in America alone are given soy baby formula. This recommendation is often given by doctors when the infant is allergic to milk. Even though soy-based artificial baby milk may be less allergenic for some babies, between 30 and 50% of infants who are allergic to cow’s milk are also allergic to soy. [3] Providing a baby with soy in its early life is dangerous considering it is a major ingredient in the diet of many artificial foods, does not make it good but it also will make the baby more susceptible to soy allergy as they develop. To add to the problem, when based on the American diet soy is used largely as a filler. Being the typical American diet is not safe, to begin with.

Phytic acid

An organic acid that is in many plants particularly seeds and bran. This can be located in grains and cereals. Phytic acid is vastly irksome to the digestive tract. Soybean has a significantly increased amount of a kind of phytic acid, which is different from other seeds. An anti-nutritional especially responsible for the opposition to deactivation.


A bluish-white metal found as carbonate and silicate, astringent and antiseptic used in eye drops and as a mineral supplement. Deficiency causes delayed ulcer healing, impaired epithelial growth, diminished fertility and acrodermatitis enteropathica. Commonly used salts are carbonate, chloride, oxide, stearate, sulfate and undecylenate. “Researchers testing soy formula in 1967 found that soy formula caused zinc deficiency in every single infant who received it. Again, this is due to the mineral blocking effect of phytates within the digestive system.” [4]

Trypsin Inhibitors

Type of serine protease inhibitor that decreases activity biologically of trypsin. Protease is a protein splitting enzyme. Trypsin is proteolytic enzyme formed by the action of enterokinase on pancreatic trypsinogen. A trypsinogen is an inactive form of trypsin found in pancreatic juice. “The industrialized process of producing soy infant formula deactivates the majority of trypsin inhibitors. Unfortunately, some remain and even in low amounts, they have been found to prevent normal growth in rats. Given that a baby’s brain grows at its most rapid rate the first year of life, growing to about 75% percent of adult size (it is 25% of adult size at birth), even a slight retardation of growth could be devastating to the development of the brain and nervous system.”[5] As well as protease inhibitors in soy are not beneficial. A protease inhibitor are molecules that prevent the action of a protein splitting enzyme.
