Hi Monkeyman, please do not post same message in all topics!

Soya is actually a toxic by-product of the vegetable oil industry.

This is not correct! Soya has been used for thousands of years. Only recently has soya been used to extract the oil. Soy milk, tofu, tempeh and whole soybeans are no by-products.

There is a lot of anti-soya madness on the internet. If soya is that dangerous why do health authorities allow it? Soy is not dangerous! To the contrary, it contains many health promoting phytochemicals.

Unfortunatly these phytochemicals include phytoestrogens, which mimic oestrogen and also are known to destroy the immune system of baby mice. True it has been used for 1000s of years but the ancient knowledge has been lost until recently. It was used as a crop to replenish the soil(it fixes nitrogen) it was never meant to be eaten! When it was discovered that you could ferment it the chinese forgot that it should not be consumed. Feeding a baby on formula with soya in it can be the equivalent of giving your baby 5 birth control pills every day. I am sorry for the soya fans but the health benefits are heavily outweighed by the dangers!

Soy does not contain chemicals from birth control pills. Administration of pure isoflavones to animals causes decreased fertility, but clinically relevant adverse effects of soy infant formula in infants are not reported (1). The Arkansas Children's Nutrition Center is conducting a prospective longitudinal study comparing growth, development, and health of breastfed children with formula-fed children from birth through age 6 y. After 5 y of study, children in all 3 groups are growing and developing within normal limits, and there are no indications of adverse effects in the soy-fed children (2).

(1) Soy infant formula: is it that bad? Acta Paediatr. 2011 Feb;100(2):162-6.
(2) The health implications of soy infant formula. Am J Clin Nutr. 2009 May;89(5):1668S-1672S.

go with Almond milk -- definitely the best alternative to regular milk and soy milk -- plus it's less fattening. icon_biggrin.gif

I have been taking dark cherry pills from the health food store as well as celery seed for my gout. I would like to add the cranberry pills to my vitamin list but read that these contain Soybean Oil and <2% of Soy Lecithin.
Question: Should I avoid these pills because of the Soybean Oil and Soy Lecithin and the effect they may have on my gout?
