The Complete Primer For Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and
exposes soy for what it is, a substance that, when processed, packaged, and
marketed by unscrupulous companies --not to mention over-consumed by the
public -- becomes a hormone-disrupting drug capable of causing a host of
health problems, including thyroid conditions. In "THE WHOLE SOY STORY,"
Kaayla Daniel dismantles the marketing mythology that sells soy as a health
food, replacing it with the fascinating, well-researched, and fully
referenced truth about soy's very real health dangers. Mary J. ShomonThyroid patient

Kaayla T. Daniel's THE WHOLE SOY STORY. This book is a gauntlet thrown
at the feet of the soy industry, whose reputation often seems based as much
on self-promotion as science. Well-written, authoritative, and
accessible to the layperson, this is science writing at its best. Larry Dossey, MD,

ABOUT THE WHOLE SOY STORY
Whole Soy Storyblows the lid off nutritional
a miracle food.
the answer to world hunger.
a disease-preventive panacea.
The Whole Soy Storytells the whole truth about soy.
The book that is all
fact and no fiction
The book that will
change your diet and may save your life.
For more than a decade, Americans have been fed
a steady diet of positive soy news. Newspapers and magazine editors
have run articles with headlines such as "The Joy of Soy" and "The Bean
Supreme," uncritically published news releases from major soy companies, and
unquestioningly accepted the recommendations of many "natural health care
experts" who claim that soy foods might prevent disease and retard aging.
Lost in the hoopla has been the WHOLE SOY STORY
Not all types of soy foods are good for us
Even good soy products must be eaten in
Dozens of respected scientists have issued
warnings stating that the possible benefits eating soy should be
weighed against proven risks.
In fact, hundreds
of epidemiological, clinical and laboratory studies link soy to
malnutrition, digestive distress, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline,
reproductive disorders, immune system breakdown, and even heart disease and
cancer. Infants on soy formula, vegetarians who favor soy as
their main source of protein and adults self-medicating with soy to prevent
cancer, heart disease or relieve menopausal symptoms are especially at risk.
Whole Soy Story presents and interprets
the often contradictory evidence on soy and disease to determine what
studies are valid, which justify hope, which are mere hype - and why.
YES! If you are one of the two hundred
million Americans who is eating soy foods whether you like it or not. Soy constitutesa huge but hidden part of the American
diet. Soy oil is the key ingredient in supermarket margarines and
the added fat found in supermarket brands of packaged cookies, crackers
and other baked goods. Soy proteins extend the value of more
than 60 percent of hamburger patties, spaghetti sauces, baked goods and
other readymade supermarket products. It's even a key ingredient
in some canned tuna!
If you are a concerned parent who wants to know whether soy formula is
good for your infants and whether soy foods are good for your children.
Should you switch from dairy products to soy milk and soy cheese,
as many popular health writers suggest? Or are soy foods so
dangerous for babies and children that they should be available by
prescription only, as the Weston A. Price Foundation and a group of
concerned citizens in New Zealand allege?
If you are a homemaker or dietitian who thinks the price is right but
wonder how the bean supreme stacks up against meat nutritionally.
If you are a vegetarian who is not enjoying radiant good health and have
begun questioning whether the meat without a bone is as good at taking
care of their nutritional needs.
If you are one of the millions of Americans at risk for cancer, heart
disease, osteoporosis and painful menopausal symptoms who wonder if it
is true that soy might offer protection.
If you are one of millions of people afflicted with those diseases who
wonder if soy might offer a cure.
If you are one of the millions of people suffering from diagnosed or as
yet undiagnosed thyroid disease who fears that soy might be the cause.
If you are a baby boomer who has heard that soy is the dietary fountain
If you are concerned about the environment and you are alarmed by the
growing numbers of estrogens and estrogen mimickers in the environment
and have begun to wonder about the phytoestrogens in soy.
