The information I posted on soy on my Facebook page in March 2013 created a big response. Many people have posted the problems they've experienced after consuming soy products. Take a look on my Facebook page.

A small amount of fermented soy is OK as long as it's organic. Avoid conventional soy; it is the largest GMO (genetically modified) crop in the United States. Here are a few more points to consider regarding soy. It should make you think twice before ordering a soy-milk latte:

1. Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and promote breast cancer in adult women. These phytoestrogens also cause hypothyroidism and possibly thyroid cancer.

2. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.

3. Vitamin B12 in soy is not absorbed. Consumption of soy actually increases the body's requirement for B12.

4. Soy foods increase the body's requirement for vitamin D. Toxic synthetic vitamin D2 is added to soy milk.
