Doesn’t Soy Promote Cancer?
I will not be speaking about GMO soy other than to say I would never promote its use. Study after study shows a reduction in Ovarian, Breast and Prostate Cancers by soy consumers. The notion that plant-based phytoestrogen can disrupt human based estrogen is not true. For thousands of years, Soy has been a staple in some of the countries with low cancer rates throughout Asia. If you pour over the studies and you can verify who paid for them, then you too might question intent.
Is Soy Filled with Estrogen?
Soy contains no estrogen whatsoever, not a drop, but cow’s milk certainly does. In fact, most folk’s intake of cow’s milk contributes to 80% of their Estrogen intake! Soy milk has the same protein content as cow’s milk but 60% less saturated fat and triple the magnesium. Soy contains phytoestrogens which are plant hormones and may bring about lower rates of cancer by blocking the actual estrogen. Phytoestrogens are also found in things like carrots, apples, and even beer.
The Truth about Hexane and Soyfoods
Known as a neurotoxin and air pollutant Hexane is used to strip soy of its oil and separate the protein creating protein isolates but the FDA does Not require any manufacturer who uses it to test for residue on the foodstuff it is used in.
The Truth about the Soy we Use!
At All Y’alls Foods, we use only the whole Non-GMO Soybean, so it comes complete with 36% protein, 19% Fiber, 19% oil, 13% moisture, 9% soluble carbohydrate, and 4% minerals. The beans are grown under contract as a no-spray crop, so the soy is as clean as can be. It is then crushed and cooked and after much love, and attention is reborn as Jerky!
From Studies through Logic and all the way to Fact
When I first published my book Nutritional Truths I was still misinformed on the facts on soy and how it is an extremely nourishing food source, based on results over thousands of years.
Be well and Jerky on Y’all!
Here is a website that covers the whole soy story very well: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=79
