Do you enjoy soy?
Though soy used to be a staple of the health food movement, now many claim soy isn’t good for you. For example, studies have found that infants who are fed soy-based formula may not be able to develop vital immune functions, according to Scientific American.
If your stomach has ever felt upset after eating soy, it could be because soy contains many inhibitors that prevent proper digestion. This in turn can lead to gas, cramps and diarrhea.
In addition, the soy used in many dairy and meat substitutes is usually heavily processed with additives like sugar and vegetable oil and can contain high levels of aluminum, which is toxic to the kidneys and nervous system.
To avoid these effects, read labels carefully and only eat soy in moderation.
