    I didn't know about the cancer in women.

    Soy (and corn) are in almost every grocery product in America today and are both heavily subsidized by the federal government. They are significant contributors to many of the health related problems in America today.

    But the filler is not just soy. It manufactured and artificial, hyper processed garbage.

    Let's just say I would rather have 100% beef in my beef tacos......
    Clinical studies show no effects of soy protein or isoflavones on reproductive hormones in men: results of a meta-analysis. - PubMed - NCBI

    And I was pretty surprised at how innocuous the actual ingredient list was, when this news about Taco Bell's beef came out a while back. It's not all beef, no, but the very same people who are telling us that we should eat less meat are now complaining that TB's taco filling isn't all beef?

    Soy | American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR)

    "Because soy contains estrogen-like compounds, there was fear that soy may raise risk of hormone-related cancers. Evidence shows this is not true."

    https://www.oncologynutrition.org/er...breast-cancer/

    "The current consensus among health experts who study soy is that breast cancer survivors can safely eat these foods. Emerging research suggests that soy foods may decrease the likelihood of breast cancer recurrence in women with a history of the disease.

    Most health experts agree that the evidence is not strong enough to recommend that all women with a history of breast cancer eat more soy. However, soy foods do appear to be safe, and possibly beneficial for female breast cancer survivors."

    Man, food myths a-plenty going around today.

    Let's just say that I have little desire to eat soy. I feel better when I eat less soy. When I avoid products with soy, my health and energy improve.

    And like the government's push for low-fat all those years ago now being ditched, I will trust the sources I have read on the soy issue.

    I really need to focus on simple foods or foods that I cook myself. Processing food changes its nature. My wife has a friend that gave up processed food and lost 20 pounds very quickly.

    Big Food is working to keep us hungry and eating unhealthy things.

    Whenever anybody uses a "Big X" nomenclature I know it's time to move on.

    Loved that article!

    I lost 40 lbs easily when I gave up all that nonsense about "good foods" vs "bad foods" and just ate a wide variety of foods and prioritized getting ENOUGH protein and ENOUGH fruits/veggies. The switch in my mind from "what to eat" instead of "what not to eat" freed me up to just eat and enjoy food and not worry too much about it as long as I was getting a wide variety.

    The only thing I avoid entirely is trans fats, because the science is robust enough there to justify avoiding them completely, and there are plenty of other options so entire food groups are not restricted.

    Seriously, have you seen the stuff floating around that says water kills people. I heard it's used in hydrochloric acid, it must be some potent stuff.
    Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.

    Dihydrogen Monoxide- they use it in cleaning supplies and they also want to put it in our food. Big DHM is trying to kill us all!
