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

4. Soy is a Goitrogenic—it suppresses your thyroid

These substances prevent your thyroid from obtaining the essential iodine it requires to function.

Since your thyroid is considered a master gland that controls your endocrine system, when it is compromised, you can end up with some serious and even life-threatening complications.

One 1991 study showed that eating only 2 tablespoons a day of soybeans for 3 months caused thyroid suppression with symptoms of malaise (fatigue and simply feeling ‘blah’), constipation, sleepiness, and even goiters.

5. Breast Cancer

Soy contains the toxic isoflavones genistein and daidzein, which, according to a 2001 study published in the Annals of Pharmacotherapy, stimulate existing breast cancer cell growth.

This obviously makes eating soy extremely dangerous for women with existing breast cancer.

According to another 1997 study published in Environmental Health Perspectives, estrogens consumed in your diet (even at low concentrations) can also stimulate breast cells to increase enzymatic activity in people without cancer, which can then lead to breast cancer.

6. Blood Clots

Soybeans also contain hemaglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that essentially causes your red blood cells to clump together.

Where the soy industry promotes soy as an effective means for lowering cholesterol levels, a new study published in Maturitas, suggests that this supposed benefit may simply be a result of blood clotting.

7. Mineral Deficiencies

Soybeans and other soy products such as soymilk all contain significant levels of phytic acid, which is shown in studies to inhibit the body’s ability to naturally assimilate minerals like calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and especially zinc.

One of the major issues with zinc deficiency is that zinc is actually needed for optimal development and functioning of the brain and nervous system.

It further plays a significant role in protein synthesis and collagen formation. And because it is involved in the blood-sugar control mechanism, zinc deficiency can also lead to diabetes.

Zinc is further essential for a healthy immune system so any deficiency in this mineral can cause a host of health issues.

8. Alzheimer’s Disease

Soy contains high levels of toxic aluminum, which not only affects the nervous system and kidneys, but has also been linked in countless studies to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

9. B12 deficiency

Because soy contains a compound similar to vitamin B12, your body is tricked into believing it has sufficient amounts of this essential energy-boosting vitamin, when in reality, the B12-like compound in soy is not bioavailable, meaning your body cannot process it, ultimately leading to a B12 deficiency.

10. Digestive Issues

And the final reason you should always say ‘no’ to soy is that it is full of trypsin inhibitors. Trypsin is a necessary digestive enzyme for proper digestion of protein. Without it, you can experience numerous digestive issues including stomach cramps, diarrhea, and bleeding as your body tries to digest the protein in your food. If left unchecked, this issue could further lead to pancreatic issues.

For people who cannot or choose not to consume dairy, there are far better alternatives to soy, such as almond, hemp, cashew, rice and even coconut milk. Try any one of these and stay as far away from soy as possible!
