Soy facts.

I posted this down the board a bit and thought from the response last time I would put it up the top here.

I know I have commented on this before but I hope I can finally squash this soy story once and for all.

1. Phytates are in soy.
2. Humans secrete phytase (and occasionally consume it), which is an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of phytic acid. Some animals, namely rats, have close to none of this enzyme. This means that in humans it won't bind the minerals no where near as much as rats. Phytates are converted to inositol, and phosphate in the human body which has other beneficial effects.
3. Most "tests" are done on rats (see the connection.........)
4. Phytic acid protects against the two biggest cancer killers in men and women, namely breast, and prostatic cancer.
5. Countries with high soy consumption have great mineral profiles (the Japanese have one of the lowest rates of Osteoporosis).
6. Soy actively makes bones stronger (Medical studies)
7. There is no evidence of adverse mineral problems in humans, only speculation circulated in some circles (usually nutritionally unqualified individuals).
8. Overall, soy has been linked with long life spans, and reduced disease. If you were deficient in minerals this wouldn't be the case.

Relax fellow A's!! If there is still doubts about this PLEASE POST!!! Don't miss out on such a good food because of speculation. I have heaps more info on the subject.

Nature rules!!
