So many people go on health kicks because of infomercial misinformation on foods that gets passed as healthy! People today, most cannot think for themselves & believe that these are for your benefit! Think again! Thanks Ralph.

Thank you Ralph. Debunked a paradigm.
I really did not expect that.
I am aware. Soy today hardly can be found without GMO contamination. But as pointed out above...
TUFT Ralph....

Meanwhile, as I found out, soy is in many products we wouldn't expect it to be. As soy is harmful, why is it everywhere?

I was always sick after eating soy products, so I rejected it. I learned that soy can cause many alergies; only Asiats can digest it properly, because their digestive system is conditioned to it. But its growing and preserving is very easy and cheap, so it's big business...

Send a Green Star to Ralph YY
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Ralph because you have done so within the last week :-(

Thank you for posting. Soy = sledge of the earth. I have known about the dangers of soy for a long time, only because I worked for an alternative doctor for many years who was very progressive and into researching everything. Here's my simple rule. Don't eat anything that's promoted alot or is in everything.

Another source of non-animal protein spoiled by GMO. I have years trying to get the elements to ferment soy and produce tempeh... apparently is not available in my country.

I've read about this subject some years ago. My question is: why fermented soy foods are not promoted? In my country, one of the biggest soy producers, you can find all kinds products derived from soy, 95% of them from GM soy. It would be very profitable to produce tempeh, vegetarians and people concerned with healthy food are on the rise...

Good, easy to understand video. Thanks, Ralph. It is difficult for those of us moving away from meat and meat products to find acceptable sources of protein, especially if one does not have the time for extensive, from-scratch food prep. I know one can get protein from vegies but it is often incomplete protein which needs to be matched with other vegies and grains to complete the chains. The book "Diet for a Small Planet" is helpful there. Currently, I am still eating some eggs, some yogurt, sometimes I make it myself, and whey, when I can find it. Also, occasional chicken and ground turkey hamburgers (those two are the hardest to give up but the most important to try for.) I love miso and add it to homemade soups. I try to buy as much organic, non meat, non soy food as possible, and I am looking forward to the farmers market this summer. I am already eating greens from my organic garden, but, again, it is hard to find sources of complete proteins that do not have a list of reasons why one should not eat them. It is a constant struggle, only going to worsen. But, I do remember this, much of the world is starving and I am concerning myself with the perfect diet. Sometimes I think it is best to work to improve what you can, and do not worry about the rest. The worry helps nothing and gives one tummy problems.
