Why Does Soy Milk Have So Many Negative Things About It?

Postby fagin » Tue Sep 19, 2017 11:27 am

Most vegans drink soy, but why? Almond milk is less dangerous than soy.

Soy Milk:

Excessive use of soy may lead to breast cancer and other cancers.

Many brands manufacturing soy milk contain more sugar and chemicals than required.

Isoflavones from the milk are held responsible for thyroid disorder, leukemia, and breast cancer.

Phytic acid in the milk can lead to low absorption of vitamins and minerals.

High levels of phytoestrogen may lower testosterone levels in males. The production of sperms may get affected.

Early onset of puberty as well as adolescence in males can be attributed to the phytoestrogen from the milk.

In women, the milk can produce abnormalities in the reproductive tract which can lead to infertility.

Estrogen in soy milk is harmful for babies.

Fatigue, fever, and wheezing are some of the adverse reactions to this milk.

Regular consumption of the milk sometimes leads to sudden skin problems like eczema, acne, and swelling.

The toxic aluminum present in it can affect the nervous system and kidneys.

Excessive consumption of the milk may generate stomach problems like abdominal cancer.

Sometimes, it develops allergies and exhibits symptoms like coughing, sneezing, and congestion.

Almond milk only has two bad things about it

Almond Milk:

It is risky for those diagnosed with low thyroid functions. The chemicals present in them inhibit thyroid function as they interfere with the iodine intake. Deficiency of iodine results in goiter. Almonds are considered as goitrogens.

It is an inadequate option for an infant's diet. Breast milk is the best milk for infants.

Even with the dangers of soy, some vegans are obsessed with it. There's so many non-dairy milks but vegans prefer soy. Why is soy milk sol dangerous? And why are vegans obsessed with it?

I think they're so obsessed because almond milk isn't as promoted as soy milk is. I agree with you though, soy milk isn't as good for you. I drink it because I'm lactose-intolerant, but I've always thought that almond milk doesn't have sufficient calcium, which is pretty much the only reason I bother with milk/soy milk/etc. But, in moderated doses, soy milk isn't all that terrible for you. You can do things to prevent the risks that it might bring about---seaweed is shown to reduce the rise in the hormones that soy milk increases. And seaweed is tasty/really good for you! :)

There's absolutely NO problem about soy milk or any other kind of soy product. Soy is a bean, just like beans, chickpeas, lentils, peas...

All those "negative" things about soy are just a MYTH to make people fear it. Nothing else.
