The soybean, which is a legume that’s native to East Asia in recent times, has gained a dual-reputation of being a “health” food as well as some sort of evil thing to avoid. Today, let’s look at some of the common claims behind soy, and clear up the confusion with current research-based evidence.

Watch the video where I answer all the following

The devilish venom directed towards the soy industry by some anti-establishment groups is, for the most part, OVERHYPED. Other than the potential concerns in those with pre-existent hypothyroidism, known allergies to soy and soy-based products (more common in children than adults), and soy-based formula use in preterm infants, consumption of soy is relatively harmless, and in many cases beneficial to health.

Soy has been a staple part of some of the healthiest regions in the world, including Asia-Pacific populations like the Okinawans. Nevertheless, it’s important to be careful of perceiving soy as a “superfood” based on positive press it’s been receiving in the scientific literature. It’s also important to realize that the soy industry has a staggering amount of financial capability to make sure this positive press continues. You, if soy works for you, at the best are better of consuming it moderately which is 2 to 3 servings, 2 to 4 of times in a week…

Now over to you, share with me your experience with soy foods also if you have any questions, do let me know. I’ll be happy to help you out.

Much love
