Similar to environmental vegetarianism is the concept of economic vegetarianism. A number of medieval rabbis e. If you eat beef, the Sweet Sriracha Braised Beef appears to contain more than 50 percent vegetables: Weight can return if healthy lifestyle is not maintained. In , the vegetarian colony Nueva Germania was founded in Paraguay , though its vegetarian aspect would prove short-lived.

The hair loss could be caused by the estrogenic activity of the lecithin. The lecithin may be increasing estrogenic activity and effectively giving you too much estrogen, or the phytoestrogen in the lecithin may be interfering with your body metabolising your own estrogen.
Too much or too little estrogen can both affect hair. I have sunflower lecithin in my smoothies every day. I will see if eliminating the lecithin helps. That would be amazing!
It is a phospholipid, not a phytoestrogen. I concur and if you happen to have an adverse reaction to it, as I do, even small amounts are quite damaging. Only the skin test showed A bump showing mild SOY allergy. The chances of it being the lecithin exclusively is very slim. The amounts taken in on a normal diet even of unhealthy food is small comparatively speaking.
Since the food companies seem to now be putting Soy Lecithin in almost all manufactured product this is creating a problem that has yet to be addressed and done something about. According to Thorne Research, Phosphatidyl Choline from soy does not have estrogenic issues so I assume that applies to basic lecithin as well.
The other issue besides Soy being so unhealthy is that the latest research is that emulsifiers seem to contribute to IBDs and possibly diabetes. They are in so many food products that even if you eat relatively healthy prepared food or even some food ingredients you end up eating a lot of gums and soy lecithin.
What about sunflower lecithin? This it promoted by Dr. Ben Lynch as a method for delivering phosphatidylcholine and other phospholipids to people who may need it with MTHFR gene mutations. Hello, Could you please tell me if Shaklee supplements are ok? Almos all of the hVe soy lecithin asan ingredient or soy isolate. I have hypothyroidism, and was told to avoid soy.
I think shaklee is organic it should be if not for the price many of the supplements its the last ingredient. Anyway I would just like to know if its safe in there supplements for my thyroid. Thank you so much!! I started a course in nutrition and learned about soy lecithin as in to avoid. I have since picked up all my daily products I consume and have found it in everything!
It is shocking and sad. What is wrong with out corrupt food industry?! I have set up my marketplace for beauty foods and I test all the products to make sure they are clean. I am trying to use as many beauty foods to swap them for non beauty foods in order to escape additives and preservatives and artificial nasties. I think we need to demand more from the food industry. Hope you are all well! This is what I am running into my daughter and I are both dairy free so in replacement we drink almond milk well there is soy lechithin in them.
What milk alternatives can we drink that are actually good for you then? It is in the refrigerated section in a curved bottle. It is dairy and soy-free and made without carrageenan as well. It is expensive, but worth it to me. They make several flavors including a almond-toasted coconut one, and their coffee and seasonal products are dreamy as well!
I raise nubian goats and mix my feed mix to not include soy meal,oil or liechtin and drink the milk. I was drinking Califa milk but found they use guar gum or one of the gum in it. Calcium and magnesium salts are insoluble in water and will sink to the bottom. Fats are not miscible with water and will float on the surface. No amount of stirring or heating will cause these ingredients to stay together as a mixture.
To get these ingredients to stay together you need an emulsifying agent. Lecithin is the most commonly, produced emulsifier by nature in animals and plants. It exists an all milk products from animals, cows, goats, etc. I am more concerned about avoiding detergent products such as sulphonated alkylbenze acids, alcohol ethoxylates and their sulhonated salts in foods.
These are chemicals I was once involved in manufacturing for use as active ingredients in shampoo, dishwashing and laundry detergent products. They are used in some processed foods as replacement emulsifiers. Lecithin is known as natures detergent. There are some plants which, when beaten in water release enough lecithin to be used to clean body and hair by natives in various parts of the world.
When consumed, lecithin can act as a natural cleanser in the body, both in the digestive system and the blood stream. The important thing to remember, with lecithin and all other material we consume is an old adage used in the chemical industry. Some doses can be accumulative.
That is, small amounts over a period of time. To the best of my knowledge, nobody has established any harmful dosages for lecithin. I think much research needs to be done. Or make your own non-dairy milk. I have started taking a supplement which contains Soy Lecithin 98 percent oil free mg. Breast cancer runs in the family not a lot, one person, my mother so this concerns me.
Does the oil free part make it ok? Just wanted to comment on the cancer concerns and to write all those who find their way to these helpful comments from everyone.
First, people with cancer are almost always found to have low Vitamin C and D levels as well as other deficiencies. All of us trying to do the best and often find it to be very difficult to find and consume only health foods. The problems with so many food poisons are definitely engineered this way on purpose. After all, the biggest food producer also owns and profits when people need their drugs.
A person who eventually dies from any disease… is often actually dying of scurvy. Ebola bleeding of the mouth is scurvy. Toxins, cancers, snake bites poisons, viruses, infection are all cancelled out by Vitamin C; while also being helped by other sources of nutrition.
Another Dr published book talks of how he took high doses of D; helping rid a host of chronic problems. Take the time to study nutritional supplementing because its so important today. Calcium can become deadly builds up in the blood — clogging your system if not balanced with K2 and or magnesium and yet no one ever educates students of these life critical truths in 12 years of schooling — health classes.
I believe even this is intentional. It is no coincidence iodine was removed from bread conditioners replaced by poisonous bromine which is toxic to thyroid function- making most breads toxic. This happened in the early 70s; just as synthetic thyroid was developed and put on the market.
As a result, today 1 in 10 people take it this medication; not realizing the true cause of their problems. Chlorine, bromine from most breads and fluorine all consume iodine which is an essential element to thyroid, health, immune system function, sleep cycles, pituitary gland etc.
If you look up old newspapers, you can read articles from doctors in the 30s who would write articles to local papers.
They sought to to inform the public what the symptoms of iodine deficiency were. Their lives were totally turned around transformed by taking iodine supplementation. This says a lot because doctors today are wrongly educated by big pharma told -that salt gives us all sufficient levels and that this negates the need for us to test for the need to supplement.
If you want to stay healthy, develope a good non-gmo supplement program. Coincidentally, there has never been a max dosage of C in IV form found to be deadly. A great doctor from Oregon Linus Pauling tried to bring this information forward in the later s. He had spent years confirming by his research the many benefits of Vitamin C and compiling his and research of others.
He was wrongly discredited by doctors who were paid by big pharma. His original articles that brought forward his claims were challenged by dishonest Pharma drs. Pauling immediately sought to counter these allegations but pharma made sure that AMA journal and others would not publish his rebuttal of their claims.
This control that dishonest money has on our system is why USA has the 49th lowest life expectancy. Thank our corrupt system. Here is a reference to the Pauling Institute website which also has a lot of good info. I was told to avoid soy by my oncologist. I wanted to buy a protein drink but it has soy in it.
Mostly everything I want to buy has soy. How dangerous is soy for a cancer survivor? If you get organic soy-made products, the link to such things is moot. I am a breast cancer survivor. I, too, would get very bad pseudo menstral cramps whenever I ingested any soy products. I even had to switch my brand of multivitamins because the soy lecithin in the vitamin would trigger my cramping. I was thinking of buying Alpha GPC choline but do not want the soy lecithin that it is made from.
Do you know an Alpha GPC choline that is made from sunflowers? I would like to enhance my acetylcholine production to help with me sexually. I am male, Does sunflower lecithin produce acetylcholine significantly?
I was diagnosed with CLL two years ago. I am still at O, it is not progressing so far. I started taking soy lecithin for short term memory loss. My question is will soy lecithin trigger my blood cancer into high gear?
Consuming any soy isoflavones, disrupts endocrine activity, which in turn may have a carcinogenic affect. Joe — That is a really dangerous thing to tell someone. Especially if you are not a doctor. Ruth — There are alternatives to soy lecithin. Still check with your doctor before taking any supplements. I have read through a lot of the comments but not all. It seems pretty clear that very many people have serious problems with soy full stop, and I think we need to be honey with ourselves as a race and say that ultimately it should be banne on this earth and not to seek to justify its use ever if there is any alternative, as a matter I principle even if we have no personal reaction to it.
However, I am flabbergasted to not have found ONE single mention here, especially by Chris Kresser although I may have missed it to sunflower lecithin, which has to be far superior and causing no problems for virtually all people. Again I may have missed it but it should not be hard at all to find at leat one reference to it, certainly in Kressers main article itself.
Am I missing something here? Lecithin is used as an emulsifier, to bring two liquids together that would not otherwise dissolve with one another. Soap emulsifies water and oil. Its in pain, Sheetrock, sheet rock mud. Killing America by soy.
Mention was made in the third paragraph of the article: Most lecithin used in scientific testing yes. Then the food companies piggy back off this information that people blindly misinterpret and just assume that if lecithin is good; Soy lecithin must be too.
If you do a bit more research outside of government moderated websites and this one; you will find a whole lot of eye opening information to do with this harmful additive.
There is no business in soy lecithin being inside our consumables other than the fact it lines the pockets of the companies which are spending much less money on purchasing this, over more of the whole food ingredients. Like Chris says, keep things in perspective. Why does something with such little good benefit, and such large defects, be so widely produced and used?
Because soy is one of the cheapest and economic crops to run. No other crop would yield such a result. And if you want to look at it from a different perspective all together; thousands of soy farmers now, India especially, are taking their own lives due to crop failure from the failure brought about by the toxic waste sprayed, injected and genetically modified.
Another thing to consider is that, if you want to continue being a farmer in some situations, you need to buy a Monsanto GM seed to continue growing. Think of nature too which is being affected. Once a grass eating animal, is now fed soy and other grains, which fattens then twice as fast and matures them significantly quicker too. And in turn more and more soy is needed to be planted and harvested, in which forests are being destroyed in order to achieve this. I Think it should be removed from all our foods that we consume.
I have had breast cancer twice, and this last time, it came because I was not aware of what soy does to your body, and I was drinking soy milk almost on a daily basis. I now read all ingredients on many food packages, and try to eat only fresh as everything is made with soy. How many people are you saying have problems with it? I think he is just stating that it is very rare really.
I am 40 and never heard of it till my daughter had soy sensativities! But now I guess I know two people. You would be very surprised at how many people have this allergy it is becoming a very large number.
I want it to alter my estrogen metabolism. Since I started eating soy and other foods high in phytoestrogens my hormonal cystic acne is gone and my cellulite has greatly reduced. I hardly have any cellulite now. Soybeans contain isoflavones, which are chemically similar to estrogens. Soybeans are a complete protein source and a dietary staple in many cultures.
Soy contains phytoestrogens called isoflavones that may mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in your body. Your body was producing to much test testosterone if you a woman this is bad but if your a guy eating soy products because your slowly turning yourself in to an emotional re. Crazily enough — since I cut out soy my cystic acne is gone. Just goes to show that women are not one size fits all. Your improvements may be because of improved cell membrane function or better metabolising of fat, or other effects lecithin can have.
Even allowed the sugar I can have.. But here is a brain thought for you. When you are born boys have sperm and girls also have eggs..
They have no eggs or something has just happened to change all that. I totally believe it is a additive that they are putting in the food. Also the theory of us being lab rats without consent is another thing I believe is happening.
Thanks for the information you did a great job giving us the facts and I appreciate your time doing so. I used to have candida about 10 years ago. Besides what you took away from your diet you should drink kefir. Stuff brought me back to normal. Also just an FYI, I had my child at the age of 33 which is well over 25 and I see a lot more women having kids older.
Not sure why you see a decline. If one is not consuming these poisonous creations, it can be beneficial in the right not huge! I am recovering from estrogen-based breast cancer and my breast cancer surgeon told me to get rid of everything that has soy since it is a Phytoestrogen and creates estrogen. Plus I have to take estrogen-blockers for the next years to keep the estrogen from coming back. When she told me to throw out everything with soy, I had no idea how much soy is in all of our food, hair and skin products, not to mention pet foods.
Estrogen is now being linked to prostate cancer. Go through your cupboards and you will be surprised, actually frightened. Soy is one of the top 8 allergens but it is more than just an allergy it can cause loss of life if not caught in time. Dont, chickens are fed soy, from experience. I cant eat more than one egg without having a soy reaction. I also had a bad reaction when I ate eggs.
But I just bought a new chocolate chip that used sunflower lecithin instead of soy and I noticed I was still having my usual soy reaction. I was wondering if it was the lecithin I was reacting to. Have you ever noticed this? Because I have had cancer 12 years ago now and I did take estrogen before that , and more recently had two years of eczema, I had chemical patch testing done.
Robin, the 3 foods you just mentioned above have nickel in them. Soy oil, sunflower oils, chocolate. There is a while list of foods. Still doing a lot of research though. Why write some stories as there are studies on the estrogen in soy lecithin. They say that part is removed, extracted and only the purest lipids are used. The product is tested by several third party labs, nanograms of DNA are extracted from the product sample, cleaned, treated with the reagents necessary and amplified over 50 cycles.
They say to date from to current no gmo is detected in the final product. What is one to do???? I have retested after my final round of shots last month every 2 months for 12 months and have very few allergies now! After the 2nd shot I no longer had signs of eczema, inability to swallow, acid reflux, etc. Arbonne products are soy, gluten, and GMO free! This article explained some things I was unaware of. I am hypothyoridic also and just discovered how much Iodine helps!
And due to farming processes and it being taken out of bread and milk, almost everybody is way deficient.
The RDA is mcg when in fact we need as much as x that. And yes, I was wondering about soy lecithin affecting my thyroid. So thanks for clearing that up. My 5yo son has an allergy to legumes. Soy is a huge trigger food. He just started Kindergarten and wants to do everything all the other kids do.
It makes him feel different. He gets severe eczema when ingesting legumes. His entire infancy, he was covered head to toe in massive crusty rashes. Now I know and monitor his consumption and treat when necessary.
So I picked a cookie that had soy lecithin as an ingredient near the bottom of the list and told her he could only have 2 on seldom occasion.
My son also has the same reaction from beans, peas, peanuts, etc. Why would the teacher request that of a highly allergic child? Screw her and make your own treat for your child. You are an amazing mum! Best luck to both of you! For those who have a soy lecithin allergy, could you share your symptoms?
I have been avoiding it for years because every time I eat something containing it bread, cheeses, chocolate, etc I develop a severe sinus infection within hours. But occasionally I would still get them in spite of avoiding those products. And I could have organic soy with no reaction.
I recently learned that hexane seems to be the culprit. I cut out canola oil, margarine, and a few other products with commonly high hexane carryover and it has eliminated the sinus infections, except for the occasional slip up. My body is so sensitive to soy that I will know by the best morning, at the latest, if I have consumed something with soy in it the night before. It is noticeable to people around me.
It can be a few days for it to all go down. Sometimes a mild headache but it is more the swelling — I hate it. It has turned grocery shopping into a chore. Even Whole Foods can be a 2 hour event. When I have reacted to soy lecithin I have had the same reaction I have when I have soy protein, hoarseness, throat closing, and slightly labored breathing I do have allergic asthma. Hi, did you ever consider that the allergic asthma you have is caused from wheat or gluten.
I found out I have that purely by removing wheat and gluten from my diet. I also found out other proteins have a similar effect. Really breaks it down without being alarmist or pseudo-sciency. Only issue is the comparison of gluten ppm to soy ppm. Allergens take different ppm to trigger reactions and that is dependent on the person with the allergy.
The only way to know if soy lecithin is ok you have a soy allergy, is to try it, probably multiple times. Yes Karen, and from what I understand from the Allergist I took my son to years ago, you may not react to the offending food every time.
It depends on what state your body is in and how much you already have of the allergen. So there is a threshold affect. Not easy to calculate and could be dangerous if you have a severe and immediate reaction! In my opinion, throat closing, is getting close to dangerous! For the last 10 years I have experiences a roaming itchiness that comes and goes and now is more here than not. I have tried an elimination diet so I can test foods but after weeks I still have the itching.
My current diet contains bananas, coconut milk, apples, grapes, rice syrup, coconut shredded unsweetened , caffeine free herbal teas, water, chicken breast, veggies except tomato, peppers, eggplant, white potatoes , tuna in olive oil, no soy , avocado, cucumbers, olives, baking powder biscuits no gluten, eggs, dairy. I have eliminated tylenol and ibuprofen even after dental surgery as I heard they can cause itching.
I have eliminated beauty and cleaning products with sodium laureate sulfate. I am elminating products with soy lecithin. I get horrible itches from my laundry detergent. Try using All free and clear. Everything that contains processed soy has been rooted out of my life. I finally feel normal. Tide free and clear and Kirkland free and clear work for me as well.
Some people can only use Norwex laundry detergent. Canned tuna contains high levels of mercury. When I eat it my face turns red and hot and my ear will swell up. I also highly recommend dandelion tea for any auto immune syndromes.
Its my hero plant and has helped me with everything from arthritis to hypoglycemia. For me, even a single GMO grape makes my buttocks turn blue and double in size. Allot of tuna in the can contain soy products. It may be the coconut.
I would try using only All free and clear and no fabric softener or dryer sheets. They make us itch to death. Also, try only using cetaphil body wash.
I used to itch every night all night and it is much better now since I switched to no fragrance products. I am an allergy queen, as I suffered immensely as a child and have had myriad treatments. I have done a lot of reading and trying things out over many years: I am almost 60 years old and have allergic daughters, though, not a severe as I.
I find that I cannot have anything fermented like soy sauce or wine or vinegar. I do not eat eggplant, tomato or green pepper. I take high quality vitamins and mineral and a daily broad spectrum probiotic.
If I have milk product, they not only cause gastro pain, etc. I break out severely between fingers a day later. I can have a bit of dairy in baking, etc. This makes dining out difficult. I usually have to have grilled protein and salad with oil only on the side.
Try cutting out these foods for a month, and see what happens. Egg whites, if you are sure you are not allergic Yams — so neutral Cooked apples Chicken soup: Jewish pennecillin Grilled meat Chick peas Cooked green beans, green peas, spinach whole grain bread or cereal, if you are not allergic rice milk as a super mild substitute for milk, tho less nutritious than almond or soy. These can be irritants.
In flavored seltzer, for example. Have you tried a liver detox? They are absolute lowest on the allergen scale for fruit. But you have to peel the pears and make sure they are ripe. Find out about salicylates, oxcylates and amines.
Please have yourself checked out medically for your continuing issue. Tried it numerous times. I had eaten them all my life and at age 53 ended up in the hosital emergency room with hives covering most of my body.
They are in the same family as rubber, latex, banana, allergies. I am also allergic to soy. Be careful eat eating them. I get sick from them if I use a knife. They have so much soy wax on them. Pealing them have kept the soy out of the mix. In response, I was prompted to this article while researching soy lecithin. I started doing so as a result of reading the ingredient list on my morning tea bag. Surprisingly, it shows up there too. While it takes an exorbitant amount of time to shop, reading labels is the only way to sure when purchasing processed food.
When someone has severe allergies, like our kids, even ppm can be deadly. Keep up the battle. I have found out that it is yeast that makes me itch!
Many items have hidden yeast… Grapes, stock cubes. I really recommend you try going strictly yeast free. Dysbiosis a balance of unhealthy gut flora can cause itching.
Yeast overgrowth in the digestive system from lack of healthy bacteria probiotics and too many carbohydrates in the diet is often the reason. A lack of calcium can also cause itchy skin. Marina, I know from personal experience that too much calcium can cause itching. I read about it and made the connection then dialed back the calcium and that took care of the itching.
The websites disagree on which foods carry more nickel, and it depends on the soil they are grown in which is annoying to no end , but if you have random contact dermatitis it could be cheap jewelry, drinks and food from a can or certain offending foods with nickel. The body absorbs nickel along with iron so eating a iron-rich diet can help and vitamin C also helps some people. Thanks Paige — I have been wondering about nickel. A few years ago I discovered I am sensitive to nickel because of problems with my pierced ears and then started having trouble with canned foods.
This one took a while to figure out. I came to this site thinking I was beginning to have problems with soy lecithin, and it actually might be the chocolate itself due to nickel. PLP, is it possible you are reacting to what the chickens were fed? There are so many things to consider. I was eliminating foods like you are and still having reactions. Finally I went to an allergist and did a scratch test and found out I was allergic to a lot of the healthy foods I was still eating daily like apples, grapes, spinach, blueberries, cucumbers and tomatoes.
Processed soy make me sick. Until just last year I thought I was dieing out of the 6 years of being miserable. All my food I eat I have to ask about soy.
Most medicines contain soy. I have to have all mine made at a compounding facility. I cant use most band aids, Neosporin contains soy. All Advil products contain soy. I feel like I live in a third world country. If I eat anything containing soy lecithin, my body shuts down until it passes through my system witch takes hours unless I take a laxative.
I became soy intolerant because I ate to much of it. I lived off of fast food for 10 years. Now I cant even touch it. I cant touch anything with soy or I risk the horrible side effects. I got on here to read about this because my 2 year old daughter has horrible food allergies. It is scary and exhausting and so discouraging. I still give her cereal in her bottle because she wakes at night and it pacifiers her but I was just realizing that it has soy lecithin.
She has lost almost All speech. She was saying everything at 18 months, counting along with us, saying the alphabet with us, etc. Her hearing has been an issue apparently. I hope it helps her. Your daughter is having a serious intolerance reaction to food that she is going backwards in her development. She probably needs dairy, soy, wheat and eggs removed for at least a month. Find a Pediatrician who is not mainstream. Meaning a functional medicine or intervention medicine Pediatrician who will walk you through getting her healthy.
Yeah, and the cereal in the bottle has got to go. So please please see a developmental pediatrician AND call your local Child find esp. Allergies can aggravate developmental issues but they are rarely the only thing going on. If hearing is an issue, that should also be addressed without delay because that alone can cause developmental delays at that age. I second the motion on the Gerson diet. Dr Gerson eliminated massive migranes that started during his med school training by starting from scratch with apples only, then adding other items like carrots, all organic foods only.
As a result, he found that the diet he created eliminated almost all chronic and simple diseases, including TB, migraines, Type 2 Diabetes, and today his clinic and others that follow the diet strictly have even eliminated terminal cancer.
Make the body healthy, and the diseases go away. The bodies immune system, if made healthy, is designed to cure itself. Feel free to email me at: MLEE, regression and loss of previously attained skills are symptoms of iatrogenic vaccine injury.
There are holistic doctors who specialize in treating these injuries. Probiotics can help heal the entire body. You can have a hair analysis done on her and this may help to find her intolerances or allergies…it sounds like you might not want to wait to long, as her body is telling you that something is out of balance and her cognitive skills are being challenged!
All doctors are not created equal…. Hello John, May I make a suggestion? When you find you have accidently ingested soy, have you thought of treating yourself the way a hospital would? For decades hospitals have treated poisonings with activated charcoal. Activated charcoal adsorbs toxins not absorbs right out of your system and its saved many a life.
Its totally non-toxic and so safe you can brush your teeth with it. Its cheap and available at most all drug stores, health food stores, Amazon, even WalMart, in both caps and powder. You might shorten your recovery time by trying it too… http: Its funny you should suggest that.
The covering of the pills contain soy. When I digest it, laxative are the best solution, in its self most laxatives contain soy. I just deal with the issue until it passes through my system. Unless its compounded I cannot and will not take it. I cannot take most Antibiotics, the pills contain soy. Unless it can be compounded there is no use in me taking it. I live in Texas, might as well live on a small Island. I have very few foods I can eat.
Even the ones from the grocery store have a soy covering. Unless I start going my own foods, I will never enjoy a good apple any time soon. It causes tumors to grow anywhere there are nerves. Soy can mimic estrogen which feeds tumor growth, so I try and avoid it. I also started taking a turmeric supplement for anti-inflammatory purposes. Would you recommend NOT taking these?
The pills are expensive and much less effective than making your own paste and making golden milk or put it in a smoothie or something. Or turmeric user group in Facebook.. Anne, I buy fresh organic turmeric rhizomes from the grocery and use them for tea, broth, etc. Before I found those I just used the organic powdered form in the spice section. Stay away from supplement form if you can. I have hypothyroid disease and generally avoid soy because of the disease.
How is this different then the soy that is in food that I avoid. If my multi-vitamin has soy lecithin in it should I also avoid that multi-vitamin since I avoid most of the soy I find in ingredients for my food? I, too, have hypothyroidism autoimmune and I would like to know the answer to this, as well.
I have read that there are many benefits from taking lecithin supplements but, from this article, it sounds like choline is actually doing the body good. My biggest symptom was severe sinus inflammation which were so severe that we believed to be migraines for the first few years.
For severe chronic sinus problems, read up on serrapeptase. I just recently started taking it so its too soon to tell but the information looks promising! Chronic sinus problems are also linked to dairy and gluten sensitivity. Try eliminating both of these for a month and see if there is an improvement. If either are the culprit it will take this long to find relief with a strict diet excluding both.
All the above stopped when I found out I have a Gluten Intolerance problem. Been GF for over 4 years and have never been sick since then. As for diary,Ive known the dangers of consuming that since I was a kid. Our Doctor when I was little told my Mom to keep it away from us.
Casein in milk causes blocked sinuses. Those intolerant will find the symptoms pronounced if they supplement with Micellar Casien as found in protein shakes used by fitness enthusiasts. Similar reactions to other cassienates found in these shakes. A few days off it and the blocked noses clear up. Soy lecithin is a compound produced from soybean oil. Soy lecithin supplements may help decrease the symptoms of certain medical conditions and are often marketed commercially as a weight-loss aid.
However, there is little reputable scientific evidence to indicate that using soy lecithin regularly has any beneficial effect on weight. Talk to your doctor about the possible drawbacks of making soy lecithin a part of your weight-management regimen and about other lifestyle changes that can contribute to enhanced health and sustainable weight loss.
I wonder if this research, refers to the promising studies surrounding the use of D Chiro Inositol, which have suggested improvements in insulin resistance for women with PCOS and Type 2 Diabetics.? Soy Lecithin is a dietary source, high in D Chiro Inositol. Taking mg 2 pills with each meal along with Vitamin E and Omega-3 has been a miracle at disintegrating gall stones over the course of a couple months. So glad to have avoided gall bladder surgery.
Please tell me if you take organic tablets, and what make? I would like to know, if it is chemicals, mostly vitamins or is the soy organic. The product is MediFast. Medifast is soy based. I lost a lot of weight on it but then was diagnosed with estrogen positive Breast cancer and gained all my weight back! Do you know if that include soy lecithin? I am soy allergic and I have had reactions to both spy oil and Soy Lecithin. Just this past week another one to Soy Lecithin in a bread that did not have it before but they now they added it to the bread recently.
Had a reaction a few months back when someone use a can of supposed canola oil spray and yup they also had started adding Soy Lecithin to it as well I get fairly severe reactions so all these manufactures using Soy Lecithin in everything they make is a real issue for me and others with severe Soy Allergies.
It may be worth looking into Hexane sensitivity if you have an allergy soy lecithin but not to whole soy. I traced my sinus pain, asthma reaction, and vertigo back to consuming soy lecithin years ago but would still ocassionally have reactions in spite of avoiding soy lecithin. Would you recommend a person with a history of thyroid disorder particularly thyroid nodules stay away from daily supplements that may contain soy lecithin?
In regards to whether it is safe to use soy lecithin if you have hypothyroidism. It should be safe. I would refer you to the following website. Thanks for the run down. I have an allergy to soy, such as tofu, edamame, soy milk. I have many other allergies and I know it depends on the amount and form of proteins — I have a severe reaction to some things raw, but once they are cooked beyond recognition I can tolerate them.
So for almost Our body struggle to survive in nature because the nature is not specifically designed for us. Better stats when comparing longevity, whether it be between our ancient brethren and us or across the last century years is to compare adult death rates, not general populations that include infants and the young.
Childhood illness, accidents etc. Adult comparison from age 20 gives about the best comparisons of longevity across the ages. Using this measure, our grandparents actually did very well compared to us death rates and now.
Cancer rates and heart disease in the adult set were very uncommon until the s when they began to rise dramatically, due to denuding of grains in processing another factors chemicals for one ; today, both heart disease and cancer rates are skyrocketing and a decline in longevity is happening.
The real boost in the last century to longevity were modern cleanliness, antibiotics and work related laws. Remember, survival depends on knowledge from the older generations, a vital link to past dangers. If few lived beyond age 30, it is unlikely our species would have survived. Namaste and care, mhikl. Well, nature was made for us to enjoy! Its as simple as Adam n Eve who sinned and did not listen to God. Since then we all are born with sin and it has its effects on the mind evil people putting chemicals in our foods , as well as sins effect on the physical body sickness and age of dying.
It comes down to your free will God gave you and how you use it. Believe what u want to believe, everyone has free speech, you said ur point of view about nature n man, n here is mine. Have a good day.! It is untrue because the Bible lets us know that Adam and Eve lived no longer then at most years ago.
There is nothing wrong with eating any way you prefer to if it makes you feel healthy, but please do not base it on the lie of evolution.
Not only your physical health and well being are at stake here, but your eternal destiny. Out of place artifacts and other historical evidence suggest otherwise.
There is nothing wrong with eating like cave men. You say they all died young as if it was their diet that killed them, and that is a crock. Cave men and women died young because of exposure, accidents, animal attacks, insect bites, snake bites, drowning, bad weather, disease, and violence with other men and women……. In response to the person who asked why would we want to eat like cavemen as they died young, you have to remember, that cave people also had environmental threats on their lives.
For example, they could easily freeze to death, or be eaten by a larger animal. They could twist their ankle and be left behind by their tribe or clan because they were a burden. If food was scarce, they could starve to death. The bottom line is, they did not have all the modern day diseases that we suffer from today because we eat the standard American diet SAD.
Meaning that a lot of people died but not from cancer, heart disease or diabetes which are diet related!!! Whether they died from hunger or cold at 2 years old or were eaten by a lion at 43 or injured themselves at 69 and bled out. What is the nature of your worry? By the way you should explore the Budwig diet on the astounding applications of the stuff. Even buying chicken and beef is hard these days bc animals are fed vegetarian diets containing soybeans to bulk them instead of hormone injections..
Even meat that says from grass fed cows still can contain soy bc they are given soybeans too is what a local farm representative told me. Long story but hopefully caught early.. Thx for all who research about soy and soy lecithin.. I try to not google much but when I saw the jelly beans I have for my kids and I love them too contains soy lecithin I was shocked and my husband said that product is in a lot of candy.
I will err on the side of staying away unless it is fermented. You do not stay need to stay away from flaxseed. It is about the healthiest thing you can eat combined with cottage cheese, neither the CC nor the Flax seed seed retain their original state but turn into a very healthy supplement. Please do check out the Budwig diet. It is a miracle that has healed many of cancer and heart disease and diabetes. My daughter is allergic to soy and almost died due to the soy lecithin which was hidden on the ingredients list.
Thank G-d she was close to a hospital where they were able to get an epi-shot into her. She MUST carry an epi-pen with her at all times. I am also a non-gmo freak and there is no way anyone can tell me the stuff is safe.
The myth, and that is what it is- a myth that soy is in someway bad for you is an unfortunate lie being told over and over again! Soy is nearly a perfect food, the phytoestrogen it contains is nothing like animal estrogens that have been linked to cancer. God gave us soy to eat, buy organic and eat to your hearts content! Or in your classification of organic? Or is it a myth that soy converts to MSG in the body? Yes, allergy to soy is a lie. Next time I am in the er in anaphylaxis I will just say to myself, walk it off.
Soy allergy is a lie. I am totally sure the blood allergy tests are a lie too. I am also allergic to nuts and eggs. My son is allergic to beef and pork, although just hives. Unless you have had your airway almost swollen shut then you should really keep your uneducated opinion to yourself. Please check your information before posting. Soy especially GMO soy contains phytoestrogens which even though may be natural is not good for everyone.
Estrogen driven cancers are worsened with phytoestrogens. Soy lecithin is poisonous to me. Soy was good at one point, but in this case if you eat it raw it will kill you because its poisonous in its basic form.
Fermented in low quantities has been OK for thousands of years in the Orient. But some idiot found that processing the Tard out of it was soo cheap the money was so easy to be made from it.
They paid for US to use it and enough paid out to look away from the bad side of it. What about soy lecithin and hypothyroidism? Is it a problem to have some in my organic acai breakfast smoothie. I bought protein powder and they say that it contains mg of soy lecithin per serving. I drink it twice a day so its mg. Is this to much? I am TTC and a acupuncture lady said no soy for me. But its hard to find price decent protein powders with NO soy. Of all the protein powders I found this one has no soy and it tastes brilliant i think because all it has in it is whey.
Kamila, I have never understood why anyone would use protein powders. Protein is so complex and is found in animal and plant sources when combined properly—if you are vegetarian.
