Soy, especially fermented soy, is very high in a class of enzyme which 'de-antigenates' the blood type B antigen, essentially cleaving it off, leaving essentially an H or O antigen. In and of itself this would not be a problem, as H is viewed as 'self' by all blood types. Rather, it is the free galactose which becomes the problem, as galactose is not normally found free in the body, but rather attached to proteins. Galactose in its free form is a known toxin to the liver, and has been inplicated in the case cause of a few cancers, including ovarian tumors (remember the hub-bub about yogurt and ovarian cancer a few years back?)
Hope this helps.
