Why You Should NEVER Buy Or Drink This Type of Milk Ever Again

But what about “carrageenan”? Do you know what that is? Carrageenan is actually made from red algae or seaweed and has been produced since the 1930s.

In short, it is manufactured by adding an alkaline product (such as borax) that then produces a “natural” food ingredient.

What is interesting, however, is that if this same seaweed is manufactured using a slightly more acidic solution, the result is called “degraded carrageenan” or poligeenan, a substance widely known for its inflammatory properties.


In fact, “degraded carrageenan” is typically used in drug trials to basically induce inflammation and other diseases in lab animals.

The only difference between this disease-producing carrageenan and the “natural food” carrageenan, is a few PH points!

There are many studies that have been done on carrageenan alone, and from these, the following list of possible side effects has been determined:

  • Large bowel ulceration
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Fetal toxicity
  • Birth defects
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Glucose intolerance and insulin resistance
  • Inflammation
  • Liver cancer
  • Immune suppression
  • Promoting the growth of abnormal colon glands, which are precursors to polyps

These aside, soy milk in general also comes with its own list of dangers, some that may be shocking considering you have been told for years by manufactures that soy milk is one of the healthiest alternatives to dairy you can drink. Not so… and here are 10 reasons why!


1. Antinutrients

We have already determined that soybeans contain these natural toxins, however, did you know that drinking only 2 glasses of soymilk a day, can significantly disrupt a woman’s menstrual cycle?

A 1994 study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that in 6 premenopausal women with normal menstrual cycles, after taking 45 mg of soy isoflavones a day—1-2 cups of soy milk or 1/2 cup of soy flour, in just 1 month, every single one of these women experienced delayed menstruation—the same effects as if they were taking tamoxifen, the anti-estrogen drug given to women with breast cancer.


2. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

A whopping 99% of soy is genetically modified! It is also one of the most highly pesticide contaminated foods on the planet. No further explanation is needed.

3. Soy is full of phytoestrogens

This is probably one of the most dangerous issues surrounding soy.

These plant-based estrogens mimic natural estrogen in your body causing such things as breast cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, infertility, and low libido.

Many infant formulas are also soy-based so the babies who are fed these formulas are essentially consuming a hormone load equivalent to 4 birth control pills a day!

The effects are astounding—girls as young as 6 and 7 are getting their periods, young boys are developing breasts. The Weston A. Price Foundation lists 174 studies verifying the negative effects of phytoestrogens.
