Epidemiological, clinical and laboratory studies link soy to malnutrition, digestive problems, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders, even heart disease and cancer.

Review quote

Anyone in America who is interested in safe, healthy nutrition must come to terms with Dr. 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, Author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words Dr. Daniel's book contains everything you ever wanted to know about soy and much, much more and will make you wonder just why our nation, our bodies and our children are not being properly protected. Soy is just one more example of risks to the public that far outweigh the greedy benefits derived by big business and politicians. It is another serious wake-up call. -- Doris J. Rapp, MD www.drrapp.com, Author of Our Toxic World, A Wake Up Call:How Chemicals Damage Our Bodies, Brains, Behavior and Sex. The Whole Soy Story is a devastating and authoritative indictment of the safety of soy foods and a "must read" for consumers who are under the misconception that soy foods promote health. Convincingly argued and extensively supported by the medical and scientific literature, it exposes the misleading propaganda of the soy industry in promoting the supposed benefits of this inferior food. -- Kilmer McCully, MD, Author of The Homocysteine Revolution and The Heart Revolution Bravo to Kaayla for digging up the whole story on soy and telling the truth. -- Debra Lynn Dadd, Author of Home Safe Home Kaayla Daniel exposes soy for what it is, a substance that, when processed, packaged and marketed by unscrupulous companiesnot to mention overconsumed by the publicbecomes a harmone-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. Shomon, Thyroid patient advocate, author of the bestselling Living Well With Hypothyrodisim:What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You...That You Kaayla Daniel blows the lid off nutritional dogma. Soy is NOT a miracle food. -- Dr. Joseph Mercola This is the most important nutritional book of the decade. Every concerned American should read this brilliant and entertaining expose. -- William Campbell Douglass II, Author of The Milk Book and editor of Real Health Breakthroughs There is a disturbing number of safety issues surrounding soy that have yet to be resolved. Dr. Kaayla Daniel begins an important dialogue. -- Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, HNC, FAAN Director, Holistic Nursing Consultants, Santa Fe, NM, Holistic Nursing Consultants, Santa Fe, NM, and author of Florence
