Critical essay on soy
Posted By: Kendra (A+)
Soy and soy products are highly touted protein sources for blood type A. I ran across a very critical essay on soy. A paragraph states...
"Soy, much vaunted by nutritionists and vegetarians, is actually a very harmful food, especially for growing children. Soy is a potent antinutrient, that is, it prevents the absorption of many vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, and zinc through its high levels of phytic acid, and vitamins A and D through its anti-enzymatic activity. Furthermore, soy contains trypsin and papain inhibitors. Trypsin and papain are enzymes which digest protein, and so although soy contains protein, and tofu has calcium (which is added during the processing), very little is being absorbed."
The complete essay can be found at http://pages.hotbot.com/health/tbk3/soy.html . Can someone refute the statements in this essay??? I am now afraid to eat soy!!!
