What are the Hidden Dangers of Soy?
In my friend, Dianne Gregg's book, Hidden Dangers of Soy, she highlights the many common health concerns connected to soy. From Soy allergies and weight gain to menopause. Is soy a threat to your family's health? Decide for yourself.
In her book, Dianne discusses soy health claims,
Is soy good for your heart? The FDA thought so in 1999. It approved wording for packaging claims that “diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol” with 25.
grams of soy protein a day “may reduce the risk of heart disease.” The American Heart
Association also supported soy as a heart helper. However, research during the next five years told a different story. The AHA withdrew its support for soy and soy supplements in 2005, and the FDA may be ready to take another look at the research.
In 2006, the Soy Daily Club Web site published an editorial that claims soy has many benefits, “including multiple studies that have proven that consumption of foods containing soy protein can play a significant role in cholesterol management”
Is it really proven or significant? It’s clearly not proven, and even the most
positive of the 41 research studies shows only a small decrease in cholesterol. Doesn’t it make more sense to just skip the “magic soy formula” and spend your shopping dollars on fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and other healthy food?
After developing a severe allergy to soy that nearly killed her, Dianne Gregg learned the truth behind this supposed health food. “The Hidden Dangers of Soy” is the culmination of her efforts to educate others on the issues in hopes more will avoid soy’s underreported—yet widely researched—negative health impacts. She has appeared on numerous radio shows and seen on CBS4 (Miami).
Listen to Dianne on the radio Tuesdays, 4pm - 5pm EST where she interviews experts and authors in the health and wellness industry.
