Soy products have swept the nation as a healthy source of protein. It has the reputation for being all natural and good for you and your baby. But, it is far from reality, according to new studies.
Do you know the ingredients in soy might increase the risk of breast cancer in some women! It might also affect brain function in men and lead to hidden developmental abnormalities in infants! Isn’t it appalling? Scientists are concerned with, and question the chemical makeup of soy.
In addition to all the nutrients and protein, soy contains a natural chemical that mimics estrogen, the female hormone. And this chemical can alter sexual development, according to some studies in animals. In fact, 2 glasses of soy milk/day, over the course of one month, contain enough of the chemical to change the timing of a woman’s menstrual cycle.
