Now the top 10 reasons you should not consume this:
-Soybeans include haemagglutinin. This causes clots, leading to the clumping of red blood cells.
-Soy also contains plant estrogens, known as phytoestrogens. These can impede endocrine function. They may actually cause breast cancer and infertility in women.
-Soy foods are rich in toxic aluminum. This has a bad effect on kidneys. The nervous system is also affected. It has also been related to the incidence of Alzheimers.
-Soybeans include antinutrients which are natural toxins. 2 glasses of soy milk a day may actually change the menstrual cycle in women.

-99% of soy is actually GMO! It is one of the mostly pesticide- contaminated foods out there.
-It has a vitamin B12 similarity, which the body cant process leading to B12 deficiency.
-High levels of phytic acid. This prevents the assimilation of copper, iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.
Food-grade carrageenan can lead to lesions, ulcerations, gastrointestinal inflammation, and colon cancer in laboratory animals, according to peer-reviewed scientific studies.
Recent research was funded by the American Diabetes Association and they found a relation between the use of food-grade carrageenan and glucose intolerance, as well as an insulin resistance in mice.
