Soy does NOT the body good

The latest on soy is that it alters the expression of genes associated with breast cancer – and not in a good way… The Journal of the National Cancer Institute recently published a randomized, placebo-controlled study of the effects of soy supplementation on gene expression and markers of breast cancer risk among women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. The study showed that soy ingestion brought changes in not just one but several genes that promote cancer cell cycle progression and cell proliferation. Soy is not only full of phytoestrogens, but it also has large quantities of potent enzyme inhibitors, which block the action of enzymes that both humans and animals need to digest protein. Consuming soy can drive certain cancers and also cause gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake. Don’t fall for the soy-ploy! Soy is on my cancer no-no list.

Avoid soy like it causes cancer....
