I’ve written before about staying away from soy products due to soy being one of the highest
GMO’d foods as well as adding hormones to our system that we don’t need. But, if you’re still
eating processed foods (which you shouldn’t be!) you need to know that soy oil is one of the
top two most damaging aspects of most people’s diet, contributing to poor health and chronic
…..#1 is high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), the dangers of which are monumental.
…..#2 is partially hydrogenated soybean oil.
“These two ingredients, either alone or in combination, can be found in virtually
all processed foods and one can make a compelling argument that the reliance
on these two foods is a primary contributing factor for most of the
degenerative diseases attacking Americans today.”
~ Dr. Mercola
In the soy oil it’s the trans fat it contains, plus the GMO factor. A big double whammy
that’s killing us.
BIG NUMBERS = BIG PEOPLE WITH BIG HEALTH PROBLEMS
Americans consume more than 28 billion pounds of edible oils annually, and soybean oil
accounts for about 65 percent of it. About half of it is hydrogenated, as soybean oil is too
unstable otherwise to be used in food manufacturing. One of the primary reasons for
hydrogenating oil is to prolong its shelf life. Raw butter, for example, is likely to go rancid
far quicker than margarine. Raw butter is the better choice by far!
ADD YET ANOTHER PROBLEM FOR THOSE WITH A THYROID CONDITION
So, why not organic soybean oil? One word: Goitrogens.
Goitrogens, found in all unfermented soy whether it’s organic or not, are substances that
block the synthesis of thyroid hormones and interfere with iodine metabolism, thereby
interfering with your thyroid function.
Bottom line, don’t eat processed foods or soy oil. Read more of this article from Dr. Mercola here.
