The Dangers of Soy

Did you know that soy is actually dangerous and that it is in so many processed foods?  Dianne Gregg has written about her experience in her book "The Hidden Dangers of Soy".  Here is a quick quiz you can take to see if you are experiencing problems with this dangerous additive.


If you are not feeling like yourself, and have symptoms such as nausea, bloating, gastric disorders, unusual weight gain, palpitations, shortness of breath, or lack of energy, a soy allergy may be the culprit. While not everyone will have a severe reaction, it’s important to be aware of what foods you may be eating that are triggering a change in the way you feel. Take this quick quiz to see if soy might be affecting your health.

Circle yes or no:
1. Are you gaining weight even though you exercise and believe you are eating a healthy diet? YES/NO
2. Do you experience nausea and bloating after eating a particular food? YES/NO
3. Have you noticed any palpitations or anxiety? YES/NO
4. Do you experience shortness of breath for no apparent reason? YES/NO
5. Do you suffer from gastric disorders such as gas, bloating or IBS? YES/NO
6. Do you feel tired all the time even when you get enough sleep? YES/NO
7. Is your body feeling out of whack and you can't figure out why? YES/NO
8. Do you experience recurrent rashes or itchy skin? YES/NO

The latest research is showing that dairy milk is as bad for health as soy milk (but for a different set of reasons). I urge you to see www.make-milk.com.

Thanks Russell for your comment. Yes, commercial dairy is bad for your health. I promote raw milk and raw milk products. There were traditional cultures that used raw milk,yogurts, kefir and cheeses heavily in their diets and had superior health.

Your book looks interesting. I have tried almond milk and think it tastes really good. People are all different and what works for one may not work for another. I wish you the best in your endeavors.

For more information on raw milk go to the Weston A Price Foundation http://www.westonaprice.org/ and Real Milk http://www.realmilk.com/what.html
