"The soybean is also employed in many Chinese food preparations such as soy flour and soy relish, but the three that are of almost universal use in Oriental cookery are soybean oil, soy sauce, and soybean curd. Soybeans in the United States The first soybeans were brought to the United States in 1804 by a Yankee clipper ship returning from China. A few people sowed the a tutu iwinvuiva jut \,ut,uiuiuijr tsiauiuvia seeds and perpetuated the plant, but there wasn't much interest in the plant."

"Soy protein is something I will not eat. soy has been heavily marketed, but I have serious reservations about the true health benefits of soy. I have done a great deal of reading about this and am convinced that in many ways, there is much misinformation that has been blindly accepted by the mainstream. Don't believe me? Just go to the following websites to learn more about some of the real negatives regarding soy as a food source: www.westonaprice.org/soy/index.html www.soyonlineservice.co.nz www.wholesoystory."

"Eat prunes daily! • soy Products Although not antioxidants, genistein and the other isoflavones in soy nevertheless reduce the risk of many kinds of cancer, stimulate bone formation, protect the kidneys, and inhibit deterioration of the cardiovascular system. Regular consumption of soy products makes sense for most people—but not for children, and particularly not for infants, because of the high level of phytoestrogens in soy."

"Just go to the following websites to learn more about some of the real negatives regarding soy as a food source: www.westonaprice.org/soy/index.html www.soyonlineservice.co.nz www.wholesoystory.com One of the scariest things about soy is that many people are feeding soy-milk formula to their newborn babies. This formula floods the baby with strong, estrogen-like chemicals which can be extremely harmful for a newborn."

"Soy and Amino Acids: soy is the name for food made from soy beans, which are related to clover, peas, and alfalfa and are sometimes called soya. The beans are processed in different ways, making soy sauce, drinks, and curds, soy is one of the plant foods that contains the proper balance of the essential amino acids. This makes it a valuable protein source, especially since it is low in fat and high in fiber. Taken from Earl Mindell, Super Antioxidant Miracle Book.

"Soy flour is used in sauces and confectionery and soy oil is converted to salad oils, mayonnaise and margarine. Processed soybean proteins have become important as meat and milk substitutes. Nutritional value A cornerstone of east Asian (and vegetarian) nutrition. The exceptionally high protein content (30^10%) combines with up to 400 kcal per 100 g and many of the essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins required for a healthy diet. Low levels of breast and colon cancer in China and Japan are associated with the high consumption of soybeans."

"Although some contrary views about soy products are getting into print, until these views are verified beyond doubt, I still think soy milk is an acceptable substitute for cow's milk. After all, soy products have been for years the staple diet in China and other Asian countries—more than three billion people. If you do not like the taste of soy milk, mix it with carrot juice and enjoy the advantage of additional vitamins and nutrients. The combination is healthy and tasty. One drawback to soy in some people is its enlarging effects on the thyroid gland."

"The secret is in the soy protein, found in such foods as whole and split soybeans, soy milk, tofu, textured soy protein and tempeh, but not in soy sauce and soybean oil. "Most people can lower cholesterol by eating two-thirds of a cup of oat bran cereal or one cup of beans per day."—James Anderson, M.D., University of Kentucky School of Medicine Thumbs Up: OAT POWER Eat oats to drive down cholesterol. Dutch scientists discovered the anti-cholesterol power of oats three decades ago, and it's now been confirmed by twenty-three out of twenty-five studies, says Michael C. Davidson, M.D."

"What are the benefits of soy isoflavones? Soy isoflavones are a group of phytochemicals only found in soybeans. The isoflavones genistein and daidzein have strong antioxidant benefits that reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer, as well as other diseases. 121. Do soybeans contain other beneficial chemicals? Soybeans contain saponins that are a group of phytonutrients with immunity and disease-fighting potential. They also act to increase immunity, prevent cancer, and fight infections. soy is also high in protein, vitamin E, lecithin, and omega-3 fatty acids. 122."

"If you want to incorporate more soy in your diet, I encourage you to try dry roasted soy nuts. Many soy products also come in low-fat versions. All the soy products are nutritious alternatives to meat, poultry, and fish. They also help cut down on the saturated animal fats in your diet.

"Studies of women who consume flaxseed oil have shown significant hormonal changes and decreased estradiol levels—alterations similar to those caused by soy isoflavones. This makes flaxseed oil or meal a great choice for women who can't use soy or who simply want another source of phytohormones. Pioneering Lignan Research Use of flaxseed as a cancer prophylactic is "an area that I think has a lot of promise," notes Lilian U. Thompson, Ph.D."

"The most common goitrogenic culprits are soybeans, soy products, and cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli. Interestingly, a goiter can be a sign that you're consuming too much iodine itself, from either food or supplements. Goiters can occasionally signal thyroid cancer. In those cases the goiter is often large, hard, and may cause discomfort or pain. SIGN OF THE TIMES In the early 20th century, goiters were very common in a section of the United States referred to as the "goiter belt."

"Take the USD A, for example, they have bred out most of the cancer-preventing compounds in soy. So an average primitive soybean will prevent more cancer than a USDA soybean. This is because we Americans tend to go for bland foods and the primitive soybean has a more bitter taste, so the USDA bred out five different chemicals in soy, and bragged about it. They bragged about lowering the phytate content, the bowman-burk inhibitor content, and the protease inhibitors, the very things that prevent cancer."

"Soy imparts excellent health benefits due to their isoflavones, which is why you should consider consuming non-GMO, cultured forms of soy (i.e., miso, tempeh, and natto) in moderation. Isoflavones are weak phytoestrogens that have the ability to bind to estrogen receptors and reduce total cholesterol—lowing LDL and possibly increasing HDL (the good cholesterol that helps keep LDL in check). Isoflavones may also help maintain bone mass, reduce hot flashes in postmenopausal women, and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Drink Clean Avoid or limit coffee and tea."

"In spite of the documented scientific evidence that shows non-fermented soy to be carcinogenic and also cause DNA and chromosome damage, the multi-billion dollar soy industry has managed to turn this generally worthless food into one of the most widely used "nutritious foods" of all times. In a written statement, a spokesman for Protein Technologies said that they had ". . . teams of lawyers to crush dissenters, could buy scientists to give evidence, owned television channels and newspapers, could divert medical schools and could even influence governments . .."

"Contains 2% or less of each of the following: rye meal, corn flour, molasses, rolled whole wheat, salt, dough conditioners (ammonium sulfate, sodium stearoyl lactylate), brown sugar, honey, vinegar, oatmeal, soy flour, mono and diglycerides, partially hydrogenated soybean oil. As we take a look at this list, we see the first two ingredients listed are white flour and sugar. It is junk food. • Enriched wheat flour is white flour. The bran and the germ portion of the whole wheat, which are rich in vitamins and minerals, have been refined out."

"To use it properly, transfer a small amount (about the size of your small fingernail) to a little dish, add some soy sauce, and mix the two ingredients together. If you haven't eaten sashimi or sushi before, start with a small amount of wasabi because it can be pungent in large amounts. Using your fingers, dip the fish into the wasabi-soy sauce mix. Aside from taste, the wasabi has another function—it kills parasites. Many Japanese restaurants serve miso soup with sushi and with a full meal. The soup, made from a light soybean paste and kelp, is quite good."

"Regular consumption of soy products makes sense for most people—but not for children, and particularly not for infants, because of the high level of phytoestrogens in soy. Balancing Hormone Levels in the Body In a perfect world, there would be no need to address this aspect of health at all, but the world we live in is far from perfect.

"In my experience, many of my patients who ingest non-fermented soy products daily (i.e., soy milk, cheese, tofu, etc.) tend to exhibit more exaggerated signs of hypothyroidism, which will often resolve when soy is limited in the diet. I have not observed the same problems with fermented forms of soy (i.e., miso, tempeh). I recommend limiting non-fermented soy products in the diet. Vitamin and Mineral Imbalances There are many minerals and vitamins that, when deficient, will cause alterations in the thyroid gland."

"In an open study of 190 healthy postmenopausal women given 35 mg of soy isoflavones, a reduction in the number of hot flushes was found (Albert et al 2002), but no improvement was seen in women with breast cancer given a beverage containing 90 mg of soy isoflavones. A high soy diet improved measures of short- and long-term memory in healthy young men and women (File et al 2001). There is still much work to be done on the clinical effects of the isoflavones in soya, but at present it appears that they are beneficial with few adverse effects (see Mason 2001)."

"North An erica and Europe. soy milk is also dehydrated to yield soy milk powder. Dther soybean preparations include: "yuba," a yellowish thin film, eaten in Jap in boiled and seasoned with shoyu; "natto," made from whole beans fer-me ited in a warm place with rice straw; and "tempeh," an Indonesian prepara-tioi in which cooked soybeans are inoculated with a white fungus. Tempeh is ust ally eaten fried. It can be found in health food stores on our continent. Soybeans are also torrefied and used as a coffee substitute.

"Also avoid anything using the words "pickled," "cured," "broth," and "soy sauce." They all indicate high sodium. Just because a product says that it has reduced sodium or is light in sodium, it does not mean it is a low-salt product. It only means it has less than the higher-salt version of the product. Lots of these products still contain much too much salt for good health. If the label says... It means..."
