Soy milk's Negative Effects on Men
Mems Health ^ | Jim Thornton

Posted on 07/18/2012 6:25:33 PM PDT by djone

**Soy's Negative Effects** Is This the Most Dangerous Food for Men? The unassuming soybean has silently infiltrated the American diet as what might just be the perfect protein source: It's cheap and vegetarian, and could even unclog our hearts. But there may be a hidden dark side to soy, one that has the power to undermine everything it means to be male.

A lean and wiry man, the breast development stood in stark contrast to the rest of his body. But it was not Price's only symptom. His beard growth had slowed, he'd lost hair from his arms, chest, and legs, Even my emotions changed."

“In the classes that Dr. Lewi teaches to medical students and residents, he has long offered this advice: If you’re not finding the right answers, you’re not asking the right questions. Though he’d asked Price about his lifestyle and habits innumerable times, he decided to go back once again, and this time to make his questions as specific as possible. “I said, ‘Let’s go over your diet, meal by meal, and you tell me every single thing you eat and drink.’ He said, ‘Sure, Dr. Lewi. I get up and usually have some cereal.’ I said, ‘Do you put anything on it?’ He said ‘Soy milk.’ “

Take 100mg of lactase with my favorite pint of ice cream, once a week.

Works well for lactose intolerance.

I drink Almond Milk because of lactose intolerance and it’s really good. I would never drink soy and don’t understand if you have the option of almond or even coconut milk why you would.

Soy is a natural Phytoestrogen —plant based estrogen has the ability to cause estrogenic or/and antiestrogenic effects.[1] It has been proposed that plants use the phytoestrogens as part of their natural defense against the overpopulation of the herbivore animals by controlling the male fertility, per Wikipedia.

And most all processed foods have soy, especially lecithin, which is a key ingredient that helps with blending other ingredients. Keep your boys away from soy —I do believe this is one of the key reasons we're seeing more “girly men”; boys are softer and have bigger breasts and lower sperm count.

It could easily explain the girly men. They are libs. Libs love tofu and soy milk. My friend had breast cancer; the doc told her that drinking soy milk makes breast tissue very dense and tumors hard to see.

Well, it was always said he was a "breast man," so I don't understand the boobhaha, or whatever it's called.

Besides I have to say if I could pull that off I might not leave the house.

And the taste is better.

And ppl are paying milk prices for “milk” that’s mostly water, which even Vitamin D is.

But 2% or less? Might as well buy full milk and cut it with distilled water.

When I got to a certain age and began having symptoms ladies tend to get, like hot flashes and insomnia, I began drinking soy milk and eating tofu. This really helped (though I no longer drink or need it). It tasted so good that my son wanted to start guzzling it. I was concerned, because if it had enough phytoestrogens in it to fix me up, it wouldn’t do much good for the hormones of a developing young boy. I strictly forbade him to consume any soy products and would not have them in the house.

He’s 18 now. Six feet tall, all muscle and all guy. Loves hunting, fishing, shooting, trucks, and women. Yesterday he enlisted in the US Marine Corps. I rest my case.

Other than soy sauce, if I see soy in any form in the list of ingredients, back on the shelf it goes. It’s getting harder and harder to find soy free products, so I may have to start writing nasty letters to manufacturers. Mind you, processed food is crap anyway, and I’d much rather have stuff that’s assembled from scratch with real ingredients.

I started drinking Raw milk 2 years ago. More as an act of civil disobediance than anything else.

About a month after starting, I realised most of my allergies went away.

My partner always assumed she was lactose intolerant. Starting with small amounts over a period of weeks, we came to believe she was having problems only with pasturised milk. Her allergy symptoms have decreased greatly.

That soy crap is also bad for babies. Do you think that the phytoestrogens are good for their development? How many homosexuals do we have because of estrogen poisoning at early development?
Soy also causes allergies including that to peanuts. The secret of peanut allergies is that we are purposely introducing babies to legumes, when they should not be. And suddely, the kids have allergies and we all suffer.

I am not completely against soy. I have sushi once a week and love miso. I also eat soy as part of a vegetable mix with other beans, corn, when I stir fry Chinese. But I would never drink soy milk. Almond milk is another story.

Saw a report years ago that soy can also cause something similar to steroid rage in some men.

I’m over 60, and we have had that problem for decades.

I think there must me something in the water in DC. It probably isn’t soy.

Either that or every primary we make numerous errors in judgement. It’s largely a go-along to get along mentality. They leave the State with conservative credentials and come back touting the sustainability crud and globull warming.

Once and while you might actually get someone with a core, but it’s a rarity.

The truth of it is that being conservative is not easy. Being a Lib is.

Uhmmmm might check that. I am old enough to have time on my hands. Meaning I now do alot of reading and learning about that which arouses my curiosity. One day began reading about "Food Combination." Fascinating subject. Mixing grains/protein a major "not to do."

Sadly in my life I can understand many things but have hard time explaining. Its about the enzymes in milk that does not allow the the grains/proteins to properly digest and causing other hidden problems.

Just goggle "Food Combination" + Alkaline Acid

As a school nurse, I warned parents, and my own kids, to not use soy-based formulas to raise kids on. Especially boys since soy acts like estrogen in the body. I have to watch what products I use because I had three blood clots using soy milk, in a nine month period. If soy is listed as anything but soy lecithin, I do not but it. I had colleagues trying to have babies, vegetarians using a lot of soy products. I told them that the soy acts like estrogen to prevent conception, but they didn’t believe me. None of them succeeded in pregnancy on the soy products, but because their doctors told them they didn’t see a problem, they refused to give up the soy. I don’t think they told the doctor HOW MUCH SOY was actually being ingested. Soy should be banned, in my opinion!

I don’t know if you’re like me but I have a primal reaction to even the word “soy,” along with anything associated with artificial sweeteners. I shudder inside just thinking about it. They feel like poison to me. I’ve no idea why this happens. And yes, I’ve eaten a few things with soy sauce in them, no problem, but in my whole life I would guess I’ve not had the equivalent of even one bottle of soy sauce.
