Having healthy eating habits and healthy everyday diet is crucial for keeping your health. Lately a lot of people are trying to change the way they think about the food that they consume every day and the way it affects their lives and to change it. The first step into making all these changes is to be aware of the things that you put in your body and try to lead a healthy life by establishing healthy eating habits.
For you to do that you need to have all the information about the products and not be deceived by the food industries which are trying to make you believe that their products are healthy.
This is exactly what is happening with the soy industry. People are excluding meat and eggs from their diet replacing them with tofu believing that this product is healthy, when actually it`s not.
As to Dr. Daniel the soy is manipulated and corrupted. The food processors are doing something that is not safe and not even closely healthy for you. They separate the soybeans into oil and proteins and for them to do that they expose the soybeans to a lot of harmful processes like alkali, high temperature, acid baths, petroleum solvents, high pressure, adding also toxic and carcinogenic residues. All of these processes make the soy to be extremely harmful for your health and causing serious clinical disorders.
These are some of the problems that can be caused by the soy diet:
- – cancer
- – brain damage
- – allergies
- – reproductive issues
- – weight problems
- – hair loss
- – premature puberty
- – problems with the normal development of babies and even adolescents
- – problems with the Thyroid gland
- – fatigue
When it comes to babies, the soy formula is very harmful for their health and proper development. The soy has hormone mimicking effects and elevates the concentration of estrogen chemicals in the blood. According to the Lancet study if you put your baby on soy formula it receives a huge estrogenic chemicals which are equivalent to 5 birth control pills a day. Babies and kids, still in the phase of developing, are more affected by this and their estrogen levels are 6 to 11 times higher than adults who consume soy regularly. So you should never put your baby on soy formula.
This product is not healthy for pregnant women also so it`s not supposed to be taken by them because it has a lot of negative effects and causes a lot of health problems on the fetus.
The soy can cause so many different health problems like:

People believe that the consumption of soy in their everyday diet is healthy. There are some groups of people which can be more affected than others by the negative effects of this product and they are: babies on soy formula, women in the phase of menopause which are convicted that the soy will diminish its severe symptoms and vegetarians on soy diet.
A part from all the negative effects there are some safe ways to use soy.
