Tofu, soy milk and many other products are soy-based.
It is a pity that such a powerhouse of nutrition and longevity got such a bad reputation, and that has to do with the multibillion-dollar meat industry.
Basically, when people switch to soy-based products, they cut their meat consumption, and that affects the meat market.
So the cleaver meat industry created campaigns to say that soy creates breasts in men, that soy is toxic and so on.
In reality, in the longest-lived people on this planet, the Okinawans of Japan, consume soy daily without any of those side effects advertised by the meat industry.
Soy is great since it is rich in calcium and magnesium, protein, antioxidants and tastes fantastic.
You need to know how to prepare it.
The only thing you need to avoid is sodium base soy products like soy sauce, tamari, miso since their sodium content is way too high.
So next time you see soy think about longevity, health and wisdom from the Japanese culture!
Soy is good ! Have a bit of it every day.
Soy…. Poor soy, one of the best and most powerful foods on the planet, has suffered an attack.
