Hey, I was looking up the benefits and harmful effects of prote´n rich foods, when I came across a website which listed all the harmful effects of the vegetarians holy grail: soy. I've also read a personal story from a woman who got cancers (plural) from eating soy.
Here's a short summary of the negative effects of soy:
* contributes to thyroid disorder (edit: cancer), especially in women
* promotes kidney stones
* weakens the immune system
* contributes to food allergies and digestive intolerance
You can type "soy harmfull" into google, but here're some sites for your convience:
Even wikipedia(!!!!) says soy has some harmfull effects, but they also say their list is not complete:
I wanted to eat cereal with soy for about every day (milk is not an option since i'm a bit lactose intolerant (and milk is not healthy for non-babies)).
Reading all this this makes me reconsider. What is YOUR opinion on this matter, and also if you know a few healthy protein rich breakfast alternatives to soy, I'd be happy to know. Well basically I think I'll eat peanut butter, fish and other meat for breakfast, but alternative ideas are welcome.
