Blasphemy!

Let’s line ‘em up and start smackin’ the shiznit out of them.

Wow. Totally the opposite of the article on Poison Protein!!! Who is really telling the truth??? Still I ain’t touching soy stuff.

Nipple discharge, breast enlargement and slight decreases in testosterone occurred with the megadoses. But "we still couldn’t find anything that was serious.

WTF, I wonder what they consider serious??

Nipple discharge, breast enlargement and slight decreases in testosterone occurred with the megadoses. But “we still couldn’t find anything that was serious…”

Sounds SERIOUS to me

This is a riot:

“Nipple discharge, breast enlargement and slight decreases in testosterone occurred with the megadoses. But ‘we still couldn’t find anything that was serious, and we went up to doses that are probably 30 times what you could get from normal foods,’ Zeisel said.”

Yeah, no serious side-effects; just oozing nipples and enlarged breast tissue in men.

Confused About Soy?
High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by ordinary preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting and long, slow cooking. High phytate diets have caused growth problems in children.
Trypsin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders. In test animals soy containing trypsin inhibitors caused stunted growth.
Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women.
Soy phytoestrogens are potent antithyroid agents that cause hypothyroidism and may cause thyroid cancer. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.
Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed and actually increase the body’s requirement for B12.
Soy foods increase the body’s requirement for vitamin D.
Fragile proteins are denatured during high temperature processing to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein.
Processing of soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.
Free glutamic acid or MSG, a potent neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing and additional amounts are added to many soy foods.
Soy foods contain high levels of aluminum which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys.

'Nuff Said!

I love the exercise physiologist that says one soy burger after your workout is plenty of protein to replenish your muscles…

I couldn’t even read the whole thing… Please tell me they said they were joking at the end. No? Fine, let the rest of the “men” in the world eat all of the soy they want. Then we will have all of the women to ourselves.
