Looks like you got your question answered.
Just like to add, that we just have to avoid soy PROTEIN. Its got genistein and diadzein in it which are the isoflavones that mimic estrogen and compete with thyroid hormone for the same docking sites on the cell membrane all over our body. And in the gut, they bind our hormone... its right on your medication contraindications that our meds should not be given to children in soy formula.
The other unpleasant thing about soy is that most of it grown is a genetically modified crop. I'm sure you've prolly seen the term GMO before. That's what that stands for.
These soybeans have had a gene from a bacterium spliced into them to withstand Round Up. This way the farmer can spray his crop with that weed killer and the soy remains untouched... the weeds die.
Here's a little horror story for you: www.huffingtonpost.com/jeffrey-smith/genet
If you do take a product like soy lecithin, our use soy bean oil to cook, make sure its from a Non-GMO source. Actually a better cooking oil would be something like coconut oil. Canola and corn oil 's a GMO crop as well.
