Why I Don't Eat Soy



Another informative article that I read back in 2002 after learning that soy was not good for my thyroid. The Ploy of Soy. I really wish more people knew about this with soy being marketed like crazy and lots of new vegans are coming on board. If I could help anyone going vegetarian or vegan or even raw I would inform them to stay off the soy!

I am not 100% raw 100% of the time. In the summer, I am pretty much 100 % raw, but as the cooler weather approaches I find myself eating homemade veggie soups, steamed or baked veggies. When I became vegan I found myself eating tons of grains and beans. I really felt puffy and bloated from them. So to this day I rarely eat them. If I do I know I'll be puffy for about 3 days after. Who wants that? So, for me, fruit and veggies are where it's at. If I go out to a restaurant and have vegan cuisine they always ask if I want tofu. I say "No thanks, just extra veggies please".

Wow, thanks for the great article! I've been looking into the negative effects of soy, and this really helped me.

The Whole Soy Story by Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel is an AWESOME read too.
