Thanks Purr! There was a posting in my low carb group this morning by someone allergic to dairy and she substitutes w/a lot of soy.

I posted one article about soy, but wish I'd seen this one! I am hoping to find those postings and I will post this article there as well.

Important info, thanks again.

Interesting read. Did y'all know the FDA has hundreds of studies showing problems with eating soy? This site has even more.

Purr- thanks for the link. I've printed it so I can put it in my notebook. I am one that use to eat tons of soy after I had my hysterectomy. I kept my ovaries, but supplemented w/soy products. And really I thought it was working well for me.

Until, I developed hypothyroidism. I fell for the marketing campaign hook line and sinker. Now, they are finally releasing info that says soy ain't quite so good after all. It turns out that fermented forms of soy are ok. Unfermented, and as commented below, overconsumption is not good for any of us. Not just those are hypo or have allergies to it.

The problem is that it isn't a bad thing but too much of it is! We are on OVERLOAD and no one does a darn thing. Jillian Michaels has good info on soy in her book. Isoflavones are endocrine disruptors that mimic the actions of estrogen. What you get from tofu is fine because it is natural but not the kind you get in a SOY BAR. We do eat a ton of it because just like gluten..it is in everything!
Heck I was enjoying the Soy Chips because they were low fat/low cal and high protein! I am sure it's not perfect but I have reduced and eat as naturally as I can!!!!

Jillian Michaels book Master Your Metablolism. Good book and she found out she was hypothyroid too!!!

Wow, I did not know that Liven. Thanks for the info, it saddens me a little to know that soy is no longer an option. Not that I ate a ton of it, but will definitely looking for more alternatives.

I have avoided soy due to breast cancer. It should be avoid as much as possible because they are finding it disrupts estrogen so that we have more than we should. Its where a little bit goes a long way but it is a cheap protein and in everything we eat. Increase in breast and prostate cancer and they think soy is part of the picture.

There is a glaring error in the very beginning of this article. They state that soy is a staple in the asian diet and it is not. It's used more as a condiment and mainly in the fermented state. The fermented state is less apt to cause problems. It is a known thyroid inhibitor.

I'm another one that needs to just avoid it period. I eat it and I know I will be dead tired.

I am one of those who cant tolerate soy period. It really messes me up big time. I dont have a thyroid so the effect is so not good. I would love to have my chocolate soy milk again.

Another good read. Below is a clip from the summary. For the rest of the article http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/research-
review/effects-of-soy-protein-and-soyb
ean-isoflavones-on-thyroid-function-in
-healthy-adults-and-hypothyroid-patients.html


First and foremost, anybody who is on thyroid medication should avoid consuming soy immediately before or after taking their medication as soy protein appears to impair absorption of thyroid medication. Individuals insistent (for whatever reason) on consuming soy near to the intake of their thyroid medication will need to increase their dose to compensate. This, of course, should be dealt with through your medical provider/health professional.

As well, individuals with pre-existing thyroid problems (and it’s worth mentioning that females, which tend to be the primary target for soy foods, are more likely to have thyroid problems than men) may need to limit their soy intake on a day to day basis. This is especially the case for individuals intent on reducing their sodium intake.

This came up tonight as I had a product full of soy and wanted to find out the recommendations. We won't be purchasing this product again.
