(Warning: The email below contains profanity and tells the truth about what happens when you chow down on soy. If either of these offends you, visit this website instead: Cute Things Falling Asleep)
Pretty brutal, eh?
I’ve written about the dangers of soy before: Soy, My Nipples, And Your Health
And for some truly horrific soy and vegan stories, read The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability by Lierre Keith.
Here are two new quotes I ran across just this week:
“The soybean itself is a notably inauspicious staple food; it contains a whole assortment of “antinutrients” – compounds that actually block the body’s absorbtion of vitamins and minerals, interfere with the hormonal system, and prevent the body from breaking down the proteins in soy itself.” – Michael Pollan, “In Defense Of Food”
“Confidence that soy products are safe is clearly based more on belief than hard data” – FDA’s National Center for Toxicological Research
The Take-Home Message for today is: Stop eating soy!!
