Here are a few excerpts:

Toxicologists estimate that an infant fed exclusively on soy formula is getting the equivalent of three to five birth control pills ? per day [20]. One study found that soy-fed babies had 13,000 to 22,000 times more estrogen in their blood than milk-fed babies [21].

“Perhaps fewer than 10 percent of us are aware that soybeans are a hotly debated topic in medical circles today. Soy products – eaten, drunk, and slipped into thousands of commercial products – are rightly being blamed for a horrendous variety of medical conditions, several of them nearing epidemic status and a few of them irreversible.”

…One percent of U.S. girls are now growing breasts or pubic hair before age three. By age eight, either of these two abnormalities is appearing among 14.7 percent of white girls and a staggering 48.3 percent of black girls

…The brain, too, can be irrevocably changed by excess estrogens, which suppress testosterone.

…Recent research on rats shows testicular atrophy, infertility and uterus hypertrophy (enlargement). This helps explain the infertility epidemic and the sudden growth in fertility clinics. But alas, by the time a soy-damaged infant has grown to adulthood and wants to marry, it’s too late to get fixed by a fertility clinic.

…There’s also a serious connection between soy and cancer in adults – especially breast cancer.

Health-conscious people are likely to eat the most. Even a moderate vegetarian or soy fan would think nothing of tossing down eight ounces of tofu, a quarter cup of roasted soy nuts and a glass of soymilk daily, and that’s far, far more than any normal Japanese individual would be likely to consume.

My larger concern is that the increasing number of less robust 15-year-olds who are already “struggling with their sexual identity” will be shoved over that thin line into homosexuality. No, they won’t wake up some morning with floppy wrists and a nasal lisp, but they may begin to gravitate toward social circles where they feel more comfortable ? and less expected to be rowdy or brag about a string of sexual conquests. And once a teen is ensconced in a homosexual milieu, breaking free from it could mean abandoning his best friends.

…Does the idea that soy can cause so much trouble sound like Rutz sensationalism? Don’t just take my word for it. Here’s what government health experts in Israel and France have decided: The Israeli Health Ministry has looked long and hard at the evidence and concluded that its citizens won’t “be fruitful and multiply” if they eat too much soy. It has warned that babies should not receive any soy formula, that children to age 18 should not eat soy more than once a day (to a maximum of 3 times a week), and that adults should beware because of breast cancer and adverse effects on fertility [37].

The French, meanwhile, intend to maintain their reputation as ardent lovers. Food manufacturers in France will soon have to remove those dangerous plant estrogens from soy formula and to put warning labels on soyfoods and soy milk

It’s also a horror, especially for folks who go out of their way to eat energy bars, pseudo-meats, soymilk and soy-laced cold cereals. You may recall from my Dec. 26 column that one out of every 125 male babies is now born with the once-rare condition called hypospadias, a gruesome malformity of the penis in which the urethra opening lies somewhere along the underside of the penile shaft instead of at its end.[2] The penis is also shorter – 2.6 inches shorter in the more severe cases. Overall, the malformity is associated with homosexuality; one small study showed that 7.6 percent of the control (healthy) subjects were exclusively homosexual compared with 20.3 percent of those with hypospadias (plus another 15.5 percent who were bisexual).

A British study in 2000 showed that vegetarian moms (who typically eat more soy, of course) have five times the risk of birthing a boy with hypospadias,[3] or about one chance in 25. The European Commission takes this matter so seriously that it’s investigating.[4] Yet here in the US of A , health- conscious vegetarian moms-to-be are swigging tall, cool glasses of soymilk. Tragically, these moms also risk giving birth to babies that are more likely to get leukemia.[5-8] That disease, too, is on the rise, with only a few people sounding warnings that soy during pregnancy could be part of the problem. It’s high time pregnant moms heard warnings. Hey, I’ve tasted soymilk and veggie burgers, and no way are they worth that kind of risk.

Although just about everyone in the alternative health field seems to know that the FDA is in bed with Big Pharma, the myth persists that the FDA “did the right thing” about soy. The reasoning goes like this: “The FDA would have approved a soy health claim only after a long, hard look at the evidence, and it must have been powerfully convincing, or the FDA would be seizing veggie burgers with the vengeance it usually reserves for vitamins and herbs.”

What the FDA actually looked long and hard at was a single, trumped up meta-analysis paid for by Big Soy, specifically Protein Technologies International. (A meta-analysis is a type of study in which the researchers get to pick the studies they like best, average them out, and then announce a conclusion that their sponsors can take to the bank.) In giving Big Soy what it wanted, the FDA ignored protests by some of the world’s leading scientists – including even its own leading scientists!

Five years later, the researchers who did that meta-analysis confessed that the conclusions hadn’t held up.[10] Even the American Heart Association has now turned on soy with its announcement last January that soy does NOT lower cholesterol and does NOT prevent heart disease.[11] It foolishly still endorses it as a food “in a varied diet,” but now says a health claim is entirely unwarranted. The only question now is, “Will the FDA admit its mistake and retract the currently allowed health claim?”

Even that won’t be enough. What’s needed is a warning label: SOY MAY CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS, INFERTILITY, CANCER AND HEART DISEASE.
