The Truth About Soy

The Truth About Soy

The Truth About Soy.

Soybeans have been the subject of completely outrageous attacks for more than a decade, which are dismantled one by one by science. Many people had turned away from this multi-millennial food for obscure reasons that no longer hold up.

The truth is finally beginning to emerge. Now, several authors are going backwards, as evidenced by the “rethinking soy”, the most striking example being the reversal of clinicians and oncologists who no longer advise their breast cancer patients to avoid soy..

Of course, intensive cultivation of GMO soybeans to feed livestock is an ecological and health disaster. But this does not prevent some critics of soybeans from consuming meat from animals that have been fed soy meal, exclusively GMO since imported. Look for the error…

Soy has its place in a diverse and balanced diet. It is easy to find products based on GMO-free organic soybeans, grown in Europe, of excellent quality and delicious: firm tofu (which exists in lactoferment version), smoked or not, silky tofu, lactofermented vegetable pâtés, yoghurt, soy “milk”, etc.

The conclusion I reach after reading hundreds of pages of soy studies is that, from a nutrition and health perspective, no scientific study has proven the slightest toxicity of soy consumption on humans.. In the end, soy has far more advantages than disadvantages, which can occur overconsumption. Nothing scientifically established allows to pour into the paranoia that the internet unfortunately helps to disseminate or even amplify, it is necessary to know how to keep one’s discernment!

What should we really think about soy?

Cultivated soybeans are an annual herbaceous plant, existing in many varieties. Soy uses come from a variety of food sources, including soy milk, tofu, tempeh, natto, meal and soy oil. The latter has become the most consumed product behind palm oil.

I know that many people are blaming soybeans as a disruptive part of the ecosystem, in Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina and so on, destroying living species.

All intensive crops, sooner or later destroy the ecosystem by the use of harmful products.

Human intervention, in its quest to produce more and more, to feed the population, always ends up destroying and leaves after its passage land contaminated by pesticides or fertilizers.

What is interesting about this journey is to realize, supporting evidence that we can change the way we produce and consume. Of course, keeping your feet firmly on the ground and remaining consistent.

Nothing will be done in ease, the human being needs challenge, he is able to destroy and rebuild. The most important thing is to be aware of it and to do everything possible to make it livable for everyone.

The main soybean producers are; The United States, Brazil, India, Argentina and China. Since 1968 soybean production has increased eight-fold. The United States dominates the market but is overtaken by Brazil.

I’ve put together a complete dossier on soy cultivation, you’ll find it here.


Soybean derivatives are on the rise

When soy is grown under the right conditions, with seeds that have not been hybridized in laboratories to make it a super plant that is not afraid of insects and grows like crazy grass, soybeans are incredibly qualitative from a nutritional point of view.

Asia has 4.463 billion and of course, even if their way of life has nothing to do with Europe, the United States and other major countries, feed mainly on soybeans and do not do worse.

When soy is grown in nature, this nutrient is perfect for its high protein content and energy value. As a result, soybeans play an essential role in the global nutritional and food supply.

Demand continues to grow and today, each of us can contribute to a more responsible soybean industry.

However, the lines are moving in this direction, not fast enough, but in a few years we can hope for more organic soybean farmers within Europe.

There are anti-soy and pro-soy. information is the best way to take a stand, listen to the specialists yes and no, but above all do your own research and analysis to finally be in tune with its most fundamental aspirations.

Like wheat, therefore bread, pasta, soy is a victim of its success.

The debates will still be controversial on soybeans, I do not despair that one day it regains the place it deserves.
