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.
“Many people, including vegetarians, consume substantial amount of diary products depite scientific evidence that questions about their health benefits and indicates their potential health risks. Milk and dairy products are not necessary in the diet and can, in fact, be harmful to health. It is best to consume a healthful diet of grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and fortified foods including cereals and juices. These nutrient-dense foods can help you meet your calcium, potassium, riboflavin, and vitamin D requirements with ease—and without facing the health risks associated with dairy product consumption.”
Here are some reasons why we should avoid milk and dairy products.
little benefit for bones
fat content can cause cardiovascular problems
riskfactor of various cancers
milk proteins and diabetes
health concerns for children, infants and their developement
In a recent study, researchers randomly assigned 45 overweight or obese people with high LDL cholesterol levels to one of three diets, including one lower fat diet and two moderate-fat diets. One moderate fat diet included one avocado daily and the other moderate fat diet was matched for macronutrients and fatty acids, mainly using oleic acid oils. Each diet was maintained for five weeks. After a 2 week wash-out period, participants then switched diets until all 3 diets were completed.
The researchers found that all three study diets resulted in lower LDL and total cholesterol levels when compared to cholesterol levels at the beginning of the study. However, the moderate fat diet including avocado resulted in significantly greater LDL and total cholesterol reductions than the other two diets. Furthermore, LDL/HDL ratios decreased significantly more on the avocado diet.
The authors concluded that eating one avocado per day decreases LDL cholesterol levels. Furthermore, the beneficial effects of eating avocados go beyond their fatty acid content and may provide additional cardiovascular benefits.
Expanding on the subject of my upcoming appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, a landmark new article in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that choline in eggs, poultry, dairy and fish produces the same toxic TMAO as carnitine in red meat, which may help explain plant-based protection from heart disease and prostate cancer.
