“Why Soy Milk Is a Con Job

Joe, and particularly Jane Public are getting conned that soy is a health food.

Soy is a dangerous con job.

Years ago, a leader in the self-help industry, a man I highly respect, contacted me to find him a home trainer. Wanting to help him out as best as possible, I asked him a few questions. Very proudly, he announced he only drank soy lattes. I asked if his nipples were now the size of Frisbees, and he had more problem concentrating.

Needless to say, he inquired how I knew about the fact he was practically in need to wear a bra coupled with the attention span of a bobble head.

I despise all unfermented soy products like soy milk. Here are a few reasons why you should avoid soy milk.

Reason 1: It contains phytic acid
That is a compound that depletes nutrients and it wrecks havoc on mineral absorption. Most people already have poor digestion. Why make the situation worse?

Reason 2: Soy contains oxalic acid
Oxalic also depletes nutrients by binding to calcium, magnesium and iron, thus decreasing the absorption of these vital nutrients.

Reason 3: It is most likely coming from a GMO source
The Center for Food Safety estimates that 91 percent of the soybeans sold on the market are from a GMO source.

Reason 4: It is a feminizing agent
Because of its phytoestrogen content, men in particular, should avoid it unless droopy breast tissue, sexual dysfunction, reduced pilosity are on their goal list. This situation is even worse if you give it to infants.

Reason 5: It disrupts the thyroid
The goitrogenic content of soy products interfere with thyroid function as it disrupts iodine absorption. A drop in thyroid function eventually leads to fat gain.

Reason 6: Soy creates digestive issues
Soy milk is high in oligosaccharides, a carbohydrate that most people have a hard time breaking down, thus creating gastric discomfort, bloating, and enough gas to create your own personalized hole in the ozone layer.

Reason 7: It contains too much manganese
Robert Crayhon was the first one to point it out to me in 1999. Soy is processed in manganese vats, which leaks into the product. Manganese in excessive amounts is neurotoxic, hence the association made between soy products and attention deficit disorder.

Crayhon was always ahead of his time. Here is a piece on soy and manganese toxicity published in 2012, thirteen years after Crayhon pointed it out to me.

Reason 8: Soy is one of the most sprayed crops in the World.
Soy is one of the crops that get sprayed the most with pesticides, rodenticides and fungicides. Some of these chemicals are found in the foods soy is made with, and accumulate in the fat tissues. Want a great recipe to stay fat? Consume toxic foods, as the body’s natural defense when it can’t get rid of all of it with the detox organs is to store it in the fat cells.

Reason 9: Soy’s purported health effects are unclear
Soy isoflavones have at best a mixed record in science when it comes to health effects, and there is some evidence (1,2) that daidzen and genistidin could do more harm than good, such as promoting estrogen-sensitive cancers.

You also have to consider that all the places where people claim soy is used as a health food, also have a iodine-rich, traditional diet, especially Japan. Okinawa, one of the Blue Zones on the planet where there is a high concentration of centenarians, is where the soy craze originates. Coincidentally, it is also an island known for its high seafood and green tea consumption.

How about fermented soy products? They are allegedly better, since fermentation deactivates some of the most harmful compounds, but the phyto-estrogens and goitrogens (thyroid suppressing) remain. If you like miso, natto, tempeh or tamari, you can have some on occasion, but the reason should be because you like them, not because you want to take advantages of their health properties by having large servings of them on a regular basis, since you’re bound to suffer their double-edged effect as well.

Stay healthy,
