Soybean: A Review on Health Effects of Soy bean Consumption.
The isoflavone, protein quality, high unsaturated fat content e.t.c of soybean has been beaten and over emphasized. We forget that there is a bad side of every good thing, no matter how small. Most times we may not know where our problems come from and we point limited resources in the wrong direction. Here’s wt I found tho.
1.) Unfermented soybeans contain large quantities of natural toxins (antinutrients) e.g trypsin inhibitors dt could reduce protein digestion, cause cancer and produce gastric distress.
2.) Soybeans also contain haemagglutinin, a clot-promoting substance that causes red blood cells to clump together which could be fatal.
3.) Soy also contains goitrogens- substances that depress thyroid function.
4.) soybeans are high in phytic acid. This can block the uptake of essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper, iron esp. Zinc in d intestinal tract.
5.) The production of soy oil is highly processed, denatured and also contributes to the formation of free radicals
