Most of us who are committed to a healthy lifestyle believe that soy milk is a healthy substitution for regular milk. Numerous people consume unfermented and processed soy products like soymilk, soy cheese, soy burgers and soy ice cream on a daily basis convinced that they are making the right choice.
But, there are studies which show that soy milk can seriously harm our health. It can cause real chaos inside our bodies. According to the survey Consumer Attitudes About Nutrition 2008, 33 percent of Americans eat soy foods or beverages at least once a month.
Luckily the soy myths are now being exposed. Here are the most important reasons why you should rethink consuming soy milk right now:
“Soy is among the richest foods in pesticides, and 99% of it is GMO.”
“Consumption of soy supports the need for vitamin D and B12.”
“Soy contains a compound similar to B12, but since the body cannot process it, it causes vitamin B12 deficiency.”
“Soybeans contain a substance which may result in clots, known as hemagglutinin, which often leads to clumped red blood cells.”
“Soy is rich in toxic isoflavones, including genistein and daidzein, which support the development of breast cancer.”
That’s not all.
