Recently, I had the misfortune of trying out some "organic health bread" that was made from a mix of various flour of which Soy flour made up a
This I compounded by having raw soy that I never touch generally. But this time I was forced into it by the "other" and there started this
I dont know if it was just my reaction to Soy or a general condition as I have never had this problem before with other Soy based products that are
cooked like Tofu. And I am pretty sure it is the raw soy that is the culprit.
Anyway after about 2-3 hours after I ate raw soy I had the worst bout of vomiting ever. It was pure nightmare !! You start throwing up and retching
uncontrollably, it becomes so bad that after you have thrown up, emptying everything in you stomach you actually begin to throw up you bodily juices
and when you are done with that your stomach burns due to the lack of anything else to throw up and your body secretes fresh gastric juices and bile
to be thrown up. This session carries on for like 4 hours non-stop till you cant stand, can open you eyes and cant think. You dont even have time to
drink water before you throw up again. You loose so much body fluid so fast that the level of Sodium, potassium and chlorine in your body drops
rapidly and they say that prolonged deprivation of this could lead to fits and eventually death. Anyway as is obvious, I was administered proper
medical care(at home on IV & injections as I would just throw up any thing fed to me !) in time and was able to recover but the ordeal has still left
me all weak and sore, apart from scaring the hell out those around me.
I am certain for one thing that it was, in fact Soy flour and the Soy bean that caused this and this was confirmed by the doctor too . But from what
they tell me it is very rare for someone to have such a violent reaction to raw Soy, especially when I have no problems with eating boiled or cooked
soy. They say that is mostly babies and infants that react on eating raw soy!
I tried to Goggle it but all I get is the same baby dietary information and veterinary information Apparently a horse will die if it is fed
I did find this article for humans though;
Soy is BAD
edit: Just found this :
Soy: The Poison Seed.
What's bad about soy?:
Contains Isoflavones (Genistein and Daidzein). In soy the isoflavones are built in insecticides. If they kill bugs are they good for humans?
Isoflavones are estrogen like substances which have the same effect as the bodies estrogen. Cancer comes from having too much estrogen.
Kills testicular tissue. In men it permanently reduces testicular function and lowers Lutinizing Hormone production. LH is what signals your
testicles to work. This increases the probability of estrogen dominance in men with its hair loss, swollen and cancerous prostates.
Male children fed soy formulas and soy products may not ever get to like girls. Dorris Rapp MD, the worlds leading pediatric allergist, asserts
that environmental and food estrogens are responsible for the increase in male homosexuality and the worldwide reduction in male fertility.
Check out the whole article, not sure about this but it sounds shocking though. Anybody know if this is really true ?
I am going to call up my doc anyways.
