Soy increases estrogen levels in males and females
Reply with quote

Soy increases estrogen levels in males and females, which leads to a hormonal imbalance. In my case it made me breakout on the back and sides of neck. It's taking over two months for my skin and hormones to get back to normal. I know everyone's body is different and will react different to different foods and preservatives. In my case I will never forget the effects soy had on me. If you do research and find peer-reviewed articles you will find the truths about soy.

soya myths and science
Reply with quote

No, soya does not create hormonal imbalances. Check out for an overview of the science. Phytooestrogens - the hormones you mention - are a naturally occuring plant hormone. in soya, they are 1,000 times weaker than the hormones in cow's milk - which creates far more havoc in the human body than soya ever did.

ok you guys I see conflict and I'm looking for facts rather than opinion if it's alright. I'm diognosed with stage 4 cancer that is very estrogen pos. I know soy has natural phyto-estrogens. I'm wondering if the processed wax would remove any of it. Soy wax is working well as a base for a homemade medicinal slave I apply all over body. I am a little nervous about using it now. Any info would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Soy isoflavones and breast cancer
Reply with quote

Some doctors warn against the consumption of soy foods by woman with estrogen positive breast cancer, but this warning is also not based on facts, only on opinions! A recent study (1) mentions that "a moderate consumption of diet containing this isoflavone does not increase the risk of breast cancer recurrence in Western women, and Asian breast cancer survivors exhibit better prognosis if they continue consuming a soy diet". Another recent study (2) concluded that "among women with breast cancer, soy food consumption was significantly associated with decreased risk of death and recurrence".

I don't know the composition of your soy wax, but if it is made from soy bean oil it will contain probably no isoflavones. Soybean oil is on the USDA list of Foods Containing Zero Values for Isoflavones.

(1) Is soy consumption good or bad for the breast? J Nutr. 2010 Dec;140(12):2326S-2334S.
(2) Soy food intake and breast cancer survival. JAMA. 2009 Dec 9;302(22):2437-43.

Eating too much soy plus birth control pills caused liver adenoma. Stopped the pills and the soy and its regressed. Tried to eat soy again, got the same sick feeling, so I know its not good for everyone even though soy industry says its "safe"
