Soy is making kids ‘gay’ 12/12/06 This is the first in a six part series I will be posting.
Years ago, I can’t remember it could go back to the late 1960s, the wonders of soy hit the health world. Soy was supposed to be the next super food. I remember reading about it, but I never took an interest. I listened to the doubters and stayed away from it. Soy then for the most part dropped off my radar screen until around 2004.
I came across an article about how bad soy was for dogs as it was the cause of many digestive aliments in dogs. It turns out dogs can’t digest soy and it wrecks their system. Soy is put in inexpensive dog food I guess as a filler. I began to check all the food I give my dogs, including dog treats, and eliminated soy from their diet.
This got me curious about soy and began to investigate it, and was shocked to find that it is just as bad for humans. Your body turns soy into estrogen and when excessive is a very dangerous hormone for both men and women. I believe many cancers are caused by excessive estrogen. I try to eliminate soy from my diet, but it is difficult as it is now in just about everything.
This is another example of just how useless is the FDA. All the research is out there about how bad soy is for our body, but the FDA and the soy industry do nothing. There are many people who build their diet around soy. Please read these articles as I believe that soy is very dangerous to your health. Make sure to keep soy OUT of your dog’s diet: check all the labels for soy.
God bless you and your health
