Debunking the anti-soy myth

Many people have been scared off from healthful foods by the anti-soy propaganda, whitch claims that soy is  almost a poison.

Soy  is simply a bean.

Research has shown overwhelmingly that whole and minimally processed ( non GMO) soy foods (like  tofu and tempeh,other homade variations ) provide meaningful health benefits.

They can protect against breast cancer.

There were concerns that these plant estrogens could potentially promote hormonal cancers, such as breast and prostate cancers; however, those fears were unfounded – whole and minimally processed soy foods protect against those types of cancer.

this effekt come from the isoflavones, which have a number of anti-cancer effects that are unrelated to their ability to bind the estrogen receptor.
Accordingly, soy foods are not only associated with decreased risk of hormonal cancers, but also lung, stomach, and colorectal cancers.

The Whole package-Synergistic effects

This below is an Abstract from Article that shows that healing and protecting properties of the carotenoids from tomatoes working in the best way when those  are in the combination, as God created them!

“For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD Isaiah 66.2

Synergistic effects

Lycopene is the major carotenoid in tomatoes. Tomatoes contain a matrix of many bioactive components, including vitamin C, vitamin E, other carotenoids (a-, β-, γ- carotene, lutein), and flavonoids. Their synergistic interactions, when used in combination, may be responsible for the observed beneficial effects of tomato-based products. This study investigated the synergistic antioxidant activity of lycopene in combination with β-carotene, vitamin E, and lutein. A liposome system was used to test the synergistic antioxidant activity. The carotenoid mixtures were more efficient in protecting liposome from oxidation than the individual carotenoid .Research Article
