Ever wonder what insanity looks like: Soy Causes Gayness

A devil food is turning our kids into homosexuals
by Jim Rutz at WorldNetDaily

There's a slow poison (Comment: Typical win-nut scare tactic....nice touch) out there that's severely damaging our children and threatening to tear apart our culture. The ironic part (Comment: It if were true, it would be "irony". You should give dubyah a lesson on what is and isn't "irony") is, it's a "health food," one of our most popular.

Now, I'm a health-food guy (Comment: Chicken wings with light beer is not "health food"), a fanatic who seldom allows anything into his kitchen unless it's organic. I state my bias (Comment: duuuuuuh) here just so you'll know I'm not anti-health food.

The dangerous food I'm speaking of is soy. Soybean products are feminizing, and they're all over the place. You can hardly escape them anymore.

I have nothing against an occasional soy snack. Soy is nutritious and contains lots of good things. Unfortunately, when you eat or drink a lot of soy stuff, you're also getting substantial quantities of estrogens.

Estrogens are female hormones. If you're a woman, you're flooding your system with a substance it can't handle in surplus. If you're a man, you're suppressing your masculinity and stimulating your "female side," physically and mentally.

In fetal development, the default is being female. All humans (even in old age) tend toward femininity (Comment: That explains finding my grandfather wearing my grandmother's dresses!). The main thing that keeps men from diverging into the female pattern is testosterone, and testosterone is suppressed by an excess of estrogen.

If you're a grownup (Comment: It's evident you are not), you're already developed, and you're able to fight off some of the damaging effects of soy. Babies aren't so fortunate. Research is now showing that when you feed your baby soy formula, you're giving him or her the equivalent of five birth control pills a day (Comment: where's the citation for this "research"). A baby's endocrine system just can't cope with that kind of massive assault, so some damage is inevitable. At the extreme, the damage can be fatal.

Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality (Comment: Again, no scientific citation for this so-called "research"). That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products. (Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because "I can't remember a time when I wasn't homosexual." No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can't remember a time when excess estrogen wasn't influencing them.

Doctors used to hope soy would reduce hot flashes, prevent cancer and heart disease, and save millions in the Third World from starvation. That was before they knew much about long-term soy use. Now we know it's a classic example of a cure that's worse than the disease. For example, if your baby gets colic from cow's milk, do you switch him to soy milk? Don't even think about it. His phytoestrogen level will jump to 20 times normal. If he is a she, brace yourself for watching her reach menarche as young as seven, robbing her of years of childhood. If he is a boy, it's far worse: He may not reach puberty till much later than normal.

Research in 2000 showed that a soy-based diet at any age can lead to a weak thyroid, which commonly produces heart problems and excess fat. Could this explain the dramatic increase in obesity today (Comment: Apparently uber high fat diets have nothing to do with obesity)?

Recent research on rats shows testicular atrophy, infertility and uterus hypertrophy (enlargement) (Comment: What "research"? He must be using the "Paris Business Review" as his source of "data"). This helps explain the infertility epidemic and the sudden growth in fertility clinics. But alas, by the time a soy-damaged infant has grown to adulthood and wants to marry, it's too late to get fixed by a fertility clinic.

Worse, there's now scientific evidence that estrogen ingredients in soy products may be boosting the rapidly rising incidence of leukemia in children. In the latest year we have numbers for, new cases in the U.S. jumped 27 percent (comment: I can't stress enough how wrong that is, please refer to pages 12 & 13 of Cancer Facts and Figures. AML has increased by 1.8% per year since 1988 while CLL has decreased by 1.9% per year since 1992.) In one year!

There's also a serious connection between soy and cancer in adults – especially breast cancer (Comment: errrrrrrr, wrong again. A recent review of the literature found:"There is no clear evidence that phytoestrogen intake influences the risk of developing breast cancer". That's why the governments of Israel, the UK, France and New Zealand are already cracking down hard on soy (Comment: Crack, hard...where's Mark Foley?).

In sad contrast, 60 percent of the refined foods in U.S. supermarkets now contain soy (Comment: And 100 percent of your readers that believe you are idiots). Worse, soy use may double in the next few years because (last I heard) the out-of-touch medicrats in the FDA hierarchy are considering allowing manufacturers of cereal, energy bars, fake milk, fake yogurt, etc., to claim that "soy prevents cancer." It doesn't (Comment: G. dubyah Bush prevents cancer....right?).

P.S.: Soy sauce is fine. Unlike soy milk, it's perfectly safe because it's fermented, which changes its molecular structure (Comment: Hey Einstein, ALL phytoestrogens are metabolized in the gut and go through a series of "molecular changes") . Miso, natto and tempeh are also OK, but avoid tofu (Comment: You should avoid sharp objects, small children, and operating heavy machinery).

Dr. Matt: It's quite comical and scary when really, really uninformed people like Rutz attempt to rationalize human behavior via their junk science. I only touched the surface on how wrong Rutz's little commentary actually is. The plain and simple fact about soy and soy products is: "we don't know". Some studies show phytos to be protective for a variety of cancers, others show no effect, and a few show increased risk. The same conclusions are true for the relief of menopausal symptoms, CHD, cognitive impairment, and osteoporotic fractures. So, please, if you are interested in a topic, do the research yourself. One place to start is PubMed. The last place to take advise is from wing-nut freaks like Rutz.
