Soy: It’s Bad for You and It’s Everywhere, Even in Vitamins!

soy

With the abundance of studies showing soy’s damaging health effects, it’s crazy that doctors across the nation and food manufacturers everywhere continue to tout how good it is for you to eat a ton of it.

The Healthy Home Economist reported there are a whopping 170 scientific reasons to cut soy from your diet — everything from causing pineal and thyroid gland dysfunction, to endocrine system interruption, to stopping a woman’s menstruation, to dropping a man’s testosterone levels, to links to breast and prostate cancer.

But soy is a really tough cut to make considering that it is found lurking in seemingly everything in America! Soy isoflavones in protein shakes, added soy vegetable proteins, soy lecithin as an emulsifier… Recently we even found soy hidden in canned tuna in water!

In fact, Dr. Sanjay Gupta reported that if Americans are what they eat, then this nation is made up of corn and soy people.

These two ingredients are added to so much of what this country eats, and the reasons are not even nutritional but political, based on government subsidies which began under Nixon’s Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz as Grist’s Tom Philpott notes:

“Nixon plucked Butz out of Purdue’s agriculture department and planted him in the USDA in 1971. At the time, Butz served as a board member for several agribiz firms, including Ralston Purina, then a sprawling food conglomerate. He rejected criticism that these ties might compromise his performance as USDA chief. (The habit of stuffing the USDA with industry cronies has proven hard to break.)

But Butz did forcefully equate the interests of agribusiness with the national interest. And in 1971 as now, what agribusiness wanted was for farmers to plant lots and lots of corn and soy. In order to profitably mass-produce convenience fare for a growing middle class, the food industry needed unchecked access to cheap inputs.” [emphasis added]

Of the nine foods the government is essentially paying you to eat through subsidy, corn is number one and soy is number three (wheat, which is the main culprit behind so many people being allergic to gluten now, is number two).

Did You Know?
Former USDA Secretary Earl Butz has been quoted as having made fun of Pope Paul VI’s opposition to population control at the 1974 United Nations World Food Conference saying, “He no playa the game, he no maka the rules” in a mock Italian accent. At that same conference, Butz also helped push Rockefeller Foundation written proposals for a ‘world food agency‘ that would allow Rockefeller and big agribusiness to dominate the world’s food supply and underwrite depopulation schemes.

Gupta interviewed a plant biologist who found that, while the average American’s hair is made of an incredible 69 percent corn, just by traveling to Europe for a few months and eating their fare, his hair strand test came back made up of only five percent corn.

In addition to that, the majority (over 90 percent) of corn and soy in this country is genetically modified (GM). Genetic modification is a worldwide science experiment. While the ultimate long-term negative impact of all this GM in our environment and on our dinner tables is still unknown, independent studies not funded by biotechnology conglomerates have already shown GM to be linked to cancer, sterility, infertility and a whole host of horrible health problems harming virtually every system in our bodies.

As referenced earlier with the top subsidized crops in this country, the government is paying farmers to grow genetically modified organisms (GMO).

Gupta went on to note soy is nearly as (if not as) prevalent in the American diet as corn:

“Americans also eat an extraordinary amount of soybean oil, another key ingredient in most processed foods. Checking labels during a recent trip to the grocery store I found soybean oil in everything from tortilla chips to fruit syrup.”

That majority of this soy is unfermented because it’s cheaper to process that way, even though unfermented soy is full of enzyme inhibitors that can essentially block the digestive process. “It is now widely recognized that the only soy fit for human consumption is fermented soy,” reports Real Farmacy.com. But as Dr. Joseph Mercola points out, both fermented and unfermented soy contain hormonal mimics that can translate to mood swings, digestive problems, fertility issues, insomnia and a host of other sexual issues for men.

What isn’t normally considered here is that many vitamins and supplements are also derived from corn and soy, so people who are trying to be vigilant in avoiding these ingredients in their food may not even realize they could be taking them every day in their nutritional supplements!

Anthony Gucciardi of Natural Society recently warned everyone that many well-known and trusted nutritional supplements openly contain GM vitamin sources. During Natural Society’s investigation, they contacted NOW, a prominent vitamin company whose products are typically found in health stores and upscale grocery stores like Whole Foods, to inquire about GM ingredients in the company’s vitamin C. NOW responded:

“All of our C is derived from standard corn not certified to be non-GMO… Many products [in the industry at large] contain soy or corn derivatives which are generally GMO’d. We are motivated towards non-GMO-sourced products.”

So while the company claims they are “motivated” to stop selling GM products, that doesn’t translate to not selling them, as they openly admit they are. And that is just one example from one company that probably supplies nutritional supplements to hundreds of thousands of people every single day.

Two of the most common GM derived supplements are vitamin C (ascorbic acid) from corn and vitamin E (tocopherol acetate) from soy, which are sold alone but are also typically added to other supplements as well. In the video above for example, a NOW antioxidant supplement astaxanthin was labeled that it contained tocopherols derived from soy.

Food is not the only place by far hidden GMOs can be found. In searching for supplements, organic is important and there are outlets that sell non-corn and non-soy derived vitamins. We must err on the side of caution and realize that, if a supplement doesn’t explicitly say organic or non-GM, it is safer to assume it is derived from genetically modified sources.

For reference, here is a list of vitamins and supplements from the Non-GMO Shopping Guide.

As Gupta noted, “Proteins and fats in your food are incorporated into your body and brain with potentially profound effects on your health and even your behavior.”

Indeed. We must consider the heavy ramifications of what this vast daily intake of genetically modified corn and soy is doing to the average human being not just on a daily basis, but cumulatively over time, and how that will effect future generations.

    Wow! Dont know where to begin. For starters any vegetarian we know overconsumes TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) ie soy, very likely GM, grown in Argentina, also used to manufacture cheapest pig feed, not kind to animals is it?
    I experienced allergies, intense itching, the buzz from a multivitamin feels like a drug I swear I am not dreaming.
    Had bad coughs as a child so Dad fed me Boots multivits and 1 morning I was nearly sick from them. Children are meant to take smaller dose Haliborange supable and chewable tablets Dad.
    Since giving up vitamins I swear I have caught less colds not more. Still gout plays up so you just cant win can you?
    Here’s a totally unexpected tip on health:- eat Jaffa and Haifa oranges to get vitamin C and probably lots of other undiscovered health benefits. Why? Israel shouldnt exist but it does and only through the Blessing of God. They greened a desert and even if you detest the political situation you cant find fault with Kosher cuisine can you? Lots of sweets using dates, diced coconuts, totally natural ingredients. Mouth watering! However, I’m told lifetime overconsumption of freshly squeezed orange juice at times when you and I have a coffee may bring on its own set of health problems eg certain brain cancers so everything in moderation yes?
    It never ceases to amaze me when dropping my prejudice and investigating other cultures who have withstood the test of time, how mature and worldly wise and outstanding natural preppers they are. Our society with its gadgets, vaccinations, vitamins etc is just a rebellious youth who wants all his own way. No grace, manners or respect. Unless the wayward youth grows up and accepts the responsibility of manhood he is the cause of his own downfall.
    Thankyou for listening.
    Peace and Prosperity to all irrespective of colour, class or creed.
