Think SOY is healthy?

Soy milk? 🥛 Soy sauce? 🥢


🥛First among them are potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion. They can produce serious gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake.
🥛In test animals, diets high in trypsin inhibitors cause enlargement and pathological conditions of the pancreas, including cancer.
🥛 Soybeans also contain hemagglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that causes red blood cells to clump together.
🥛 In fermented products, enzyme inhibitors concentrate in the soaking liquid rather than in the curd. Thus, in tofu and bean curd, growth depressants are reduced in quantity but not completely eliminated.
🥛Soy also contains goitrogens - substances that depress thyroid function.
🥛 Soybeans are high in phytic acid, present in the bran or hulls of all seeds. It's a substance that can block the uptake of essential minerals - calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc - in the intestinal tract.
