More On Soy Protein Isolate

The ingredients in soy, in addition to the effects of eating it, make up the basis of my recommendations against it:

-  The phytic acid interferes with the assimilation of calcium, magnesium, zinc and other minerals.

-  The trypsin inhibitors interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders.

- The phytoestrogens may cause hypothyroidism especially in infants, and adults with a weak thyroid


Also, the processing to obtain soy protein in commercial products causes:

-  The formation of toxic chemicals

-  The formation of MSG, an excitotoxin

-  The proteins are denatured, making them toxic.

Pretty grim, don't you think?
