Soy and disadvantages for your health
Soy is a little full of protein. It contains very few methionine (the only essential sulfur-bearing amino acid).
Soy lowers testosterone levels. Bad news for men.
Soy contains many isoflavones. Isoflavones inhibit the thyroid hormone. Bad news for your vitality and your fat burning so.
Soy irritate the intestine. Saponins and lectins in soy are the culprits. People with sensitive intestines, be warned.
Soy is a bean and can cause unfermented flatulence.
Unfermented soy contains strong protein inhibitors, substances which prevent the absorption of protein. Not good for athletes, children and health in general.
Unfermented soy contains many highly active phytates, substances which prevent the calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc to be absorbed by the body.
