The Truth About Soy Is soy a disease-preventing miracle food or a dangerous health threat disguised as diet-friendly protein? Here are both sides of the story, and why there’s no clear picture of. Soy is found in popular foods including tofu, edamame, tempeh and soy milk. Soy contains isoflavones, which are changed in the body to phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are similar to the hormone.

Tofu and other soy foods—like edamame, soymilk, tempeh and miso—contain all of the essential amino acids, which the body needs to build complete proteins. Soy foods are also cholesterol-free and. Soy products promote rather than prevent cancer. Soy contains “antinutrients” and is full of toxins. The pro-soy publicity of the past few years is nothing but “propaganda.”.

Soy formula, they say, amounts to “birth control pills for babies.”. “Soy is not hemlock,” they conclude, “soy is more insidious than hemlock.”. Truth: Soy was first used as a food during the late Chou dynasty (1134-246 BC), only after the Chinese learned to ferment soy beans to make foods like tempeh, natto and tamari. Myth: Asians consume large amounts of soy foods. Truth: Average consumption of soy foods in Japan and China is 10 grams (about 2 teaspoons) per day. Asians consume soy foods in small.

Soy is exalted as a health food by some, with claims of taming hot flashes, warding off osteoporosis, and protecting against hormonal cancers like breast and prostate. At the same time, soy is shunned by others for fear that it may cause. Soy has been part of traditional Asian diets for thousands of years. In fact, there’s evidence that soybeans were grown in China as early as 9,000 B.C.. In The Whole Soy Story, Kaayla Daniel dismantles the marketing mythology that sells soy as a health food, replacing it with the fascinating, well-researched and fully referenced truth about soy’s very real health dangers. Soy contains certain nutrients called isoflavones that have chemical structures similar to estrogen, sometimes called phytoestrogen.

Many assumptions have been made about the effects of phytoestrogens in the body because of its similarity to estrogen. However, these phytoestrogens are not equivalent to estrogens found in a woman’s body. Soy is healthy.

Soy is dangerous and should be avoided at all costs. Soybeans and most soy foods (like tofu, tempeh and soy milk) are high in protein and isoflavones and low in saturated fat. Soy has played a role as a dietary staple in Asia and dates back many centuries.

  • I live in Israel too. Could we meet? All of the vegans i saw were unhealthy wicklings. You seem healthy from the distance of a youtube camera. I want to observe your health condition with my own eyes. Lets meet, ill buy you a cup of coffee.

  • The best thing to have for your stomach and your body is berries blueberries blackberries strawberries and pomegranate. Too much soy is not good for your body

  • glossing over the GMO issue with soy. That leaves soy off of my consumables list. Most foods that use soy to boost the protein levels are made with isolated soy protein including a lot of products that pretend to be healthy like clif and luna bars. That takes those products off my list too. Soy free for me and I am whole food plant based vegan. I suspect this video is meant to boost sales of certain supplements being marketed by the producer.

  • Great video!! People is worried about feminism effect due to the phytoestrogens, that comes from a plant and we are not similar to a plant whatsoever. In the other hand they don’t worry about cows milk which is packed with animal estrogens, which is very similar to us humans and we’ll absorb in the nanosecond of it passing through our lips!! People just don’t use their brains!!

  • I’m not saying it’s absolute, but my transformation from a little fat girl with pigtails & freckles into a scary guy who makes other men shit their pants & women steam up thier panties does correspond with giving up tofu & soy products.

  • I found Equelle with Equol product from fermented soy. its very helpful for postmenopausal women and safe in case of breast cancer.Its made in Japan and now also in USA

  • Thank you so much sir.
    You build my confidence so much
    As far as i produce soy bean milk to sell I was always not sure that soy milk is good or not. Did i destroy people’s health. Now i know the truth. Thank you soooo muchh sirr. I’m from Laos near thailand

  • talking about soy shit product, i once saw fake meat made of soy for Chinese monk. ironic isn’t it? they are supposed to be vegetarian but they want to eat meat.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful teaching information video on soybeans. I use to enjoy �� it and I gave it up because of all the negative �� press. I can now use it again..������������������������������

  • I eaten before texturised soy protein in the form of mince meat or escalope. It’s common in my country I don’t know if in usa. Chinese shop could sell it. It is also not good for eating?

  • I’m 100% vegan and I do eat soy but very uncomfortable while eating it!! but I trust those two doctors so I’m going to relax with my meals now!! thank you doctors ��

  • Asian people have been traditionally eating natural soy foods every day, apparently 2-3 servings a day, varying in food choice from country to country. And they were just fine, fit and healthy martial artists all along.
    The bad rep soy foods get is highly speculative and theoretical, making lousy mistakes like confusing PHYTOestrogen with actual oestrogen found in dairy and meat. The medical data however proves soy foods as very healthy. Containing many micronutrients like flavenoids and phytochemicals. Known to us scientists as health promoting foods that slim you down and improve cognitive functions.

  • While I have been a big opponent of Soy based off some Vids I saw at the beginning of my WFPB lifestyle, I only allowed myself fermented soy sparingly in noodle bowls; I am impressed by the panel of Dr.s that you have compiled in this vid. With there data/citations in mind; I will begin introducing organic soy in at least a couple of meals a week along with my fermented soy usage. Thank you for broadening my protein panel and while it has created a nutritional cognitive dissonance, I will push through until I’m comfortable. Dang the propaganda that makes eating healthy so confusing…

  • Good Piece Man!!. i wish you could also interview experts from the soy Plant Experts to help us learn the good and the bad soy. Biggest Thanks, more power.

  • I love soy, everyone has always said not to eat it, but I love it! Have been eating it for 30 years, all through my pregnancy and raised my daughter with soy, she’s always loved tofu! And will continue to eat it, we will never eat dairy. Could never support the dairy industry it is so wrong, but that’s just my opinion.

  • So the epic fail is that the researchers did not control the cow’s diet to control the milk samples. Most likely the (unhealthy, factory) cows were grain (soy) fed and injected with growth hormones, skewing the results, making the health problem of corporate manufactured (pasturized) milk.

  • yo soy bien happy lol….it’s crazy cuz I fell for all the false information but had a feeling that it was ” big dairy ” and ” meat” being shady. very important to buy organic non gmo though. I buy san diego tofu brand. awesome.

  • Soy is a superfood that should be more respected. Fermented soy should be the only available in a plate, since is healthier and easier to digest, like tempeh. GMO soy is crap, buy organic or gmo free.

  • Non-GMO soy is fine, but either way the processed soy isn’t very healthy. Eat as many whole foods as possible, that’s the best way to go.

  • Thank you for this video, I been vegan for years and love soy, but latetly I was doubting the soy, due to all of this misconseption and black propaganda from the dairy industry, I have to confess “I was drinking the cool-aid”, but as I am, I like to investigate extensively something before making my own opinion. Not just judging based on one or two opinions, studies or videos…
    Thank you so much for this video, keep the good work.

  • Sorry Paul. I saw your face and thought this video was a parody because you don’t look particularly masculine. I also looked up your source video. Congrats. The doctor has noted that you used her video as a reference! Unfortunately she slags you off.

  • Now I can finally eat soy GUILT FREE! I have been concerned about the side effects of soy for years. Thank you for clearing up the false data! Minimally processed, organic soy is healthy!:)

  • Thank you for this video ���� I started to eat a whole food plant diet and I started to hear a lot of negative stuff about soy! So this video is totally welcome in the community ❤️

  • I really like mcdougall, and I like how he points out traditional soy products are okay, because they have been proven so for millenniums. Second time watching this little short, old but still valid. I think two ounces is obviously on the lower end of what is acceptable (Gregor shows actual evidence of 3-5 servings seemingly acceptably healthy), but I like the message.

  • You are amazing! I l thank you a lot for all the information you give me to educate myself more and more about health. This is my 4th year as a Vegan!

  • thank you! I was introduced to soy when I was a little girl. my parents learned about the benefits of soy and decided to start cooking it almost every day. now that I want to become a vegan along side my family, I was worried about the harmful effects of soy divulged by the media. I feel that eating the right soy products will benefit us more than to cause any problems

  • If soy is good for your health and you feed the cows with soy then cow’s milk is good for your health or not?And if soy reduces estrogen levels then cows have a low level of estrogen.In addition in humans during pregnancy high levels of estrogen blocks lactation after giving birth estrogen levels drop which allows breastfeeding I guess it happens the same way for cows (must ask a Vegan they know everything).So the high rate of estrogen in the milk seems to be bullshit too.

  • So soy based fake meat is still a no no? How about just a tiny bit on my toast (cream “cheese”)? I can’t find a suitable toast spread.

  • I’ve grown up eating soy and absolutely love it. I am 50 yrs old and wondered at times if it made my menopause symptoms worse.. maybe a little but I discovered something recently! It was the oil and to much fats in my diet as a vegan that were causing my symptoms! Since I cut out oil and greatly reduced fats in my diet, I can enjoy my soy without hot flashes! It’s awesome and I’ve lost some weight that I really wanted to. It really is the fat that causes lots of problems.

  • Great video. Went vegan about six months ago and made soy milk a part of my diet, mostly as substitute for milk and cheese in oatmeal, creamy vegetable pasta dishes and risotto.

  • Soy DOES MESS WITH YOU AND YOUR KIDS…I wouldn’t drink milk when I was a newborn baby SO the nurse and my mom fed me soy AND IT WAS THE ABSOLUTE WORST THING OF MY LIFETIME THEY COULD HAVE EVER DONE AND MY LIFE HAS NOT BEEN NORMAL SINCE THEN!..These guys know exactly what it does to you, that WHY they want you drinking it!
