10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID SOY MILK:
Soybeans contain incredibly large amount of antinutrients – natural toxins. For instance, only 2 glasses per a day can alter a woman’s menstrual cycle.
This milk automatically increases the need for vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
The substance haemagglutinin, found inside the structure of the soybeans causes the red blood cells to clump.
More than 99% of soy is GMO. In fact, it is one of the highest contaminations by pesticides of any types of foods.
The soy products contain high amounts of phytic acid, which inhibits assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.
Soy foods contain high levels of toxic aluminum. This compound has negative impact on the nervous system, the kidneys and also it has been linked to the onset of Alzheimer’s.
Soy is consisted of compound resembling vitamin B12 that cannot be processed by human body. Therefore, soy foods may contribute to deficiency of vitamin B12.
The fragile soy proteins are exposed to high temperatures during the processing in order to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein. That actually makes them dangerous for human digestion.
Soy contains toxic isoflavones. It is important to mention that soy isoflavones genistein and daidzein has the ability to stimulate existing breast cancer growth showing risk in consuming soy products if a woman has breast cancer.
Soy contains the plant estrogens (phytoestrogens), which disrupt endocrine function, therefore soy consummation may lead to infertility and breast cancer at women.
