I know many people out there are confused about soy. There seems to be so many misleading articles on the topic. Last night I was doing my research and came upon this website. I found this information very useful and wanted to share it with everyone. I highly recommend reading the full article here.


Here’s one of the Myths.

Myth: Soy formula is safe for infants.


Truth: Soy foods contain trypsin inhibitors that inhibit protein digestion and affect pancreatic function. In test animals, diets high in trypsin inhibitors led to stunted growth and pancreatic disorders. Soy foods increase the body’s requirement for vitamin D, needed for strong bones and normal growth. Phytic acid in soy foods results in reduced bioavailabilty of iron and zinc which are required for the health and development of the brain and nervous system. Soy also lacks cholesterol, likewise essential for the development of the brain and nervous system. Megadoses of phytoestrogens in soy formula have been implicated in the current trend toward increasingly premature sexual development in girls and delayed or retarded sexual development in boys.
