Is soy or tofu bad for you?

Is soy or tofu bad for you?

In general "No": Soy may be good for you unless you are allergic to it or have had breast cancer (those with estrogen receptors). Although once touted as beneficial in preventing breast cancer, soy may mimic estrogen action. In my view, anything in excess is not good for you, but given a choice between red meat and soy, soy would come out ahead health-wise. ...Read more

Is there a way I can solve my soy intolerance?

Is there a way I can solve my soy intolerance?

Allergies: There is, but it takes quite a lot of time. There are allergy clinics that can do immunotherapy - essentially, they take an extremely small amount of the substance that causes you grief, and inject it under your skin. Over time, they increase this amount. Basically, it allows your immune system to get "used to" the substance until it does not react anymore. Good luck! ...Read more

Is soy formula truly dangerous or is that a false statement?

Is soy formula truly dangerous or is that a false statement?

False; however...: We don't fully know the potential hazards of soy formula; more research is needed. What is known is ALL formulas are inferior to breast milk; breast feeding is ALWAYS the healthiest choice. If not possible then I advise organic milk formula- see http://tinyurl.com/lt2yv84 I only advise soy formula if it is clear a baby does not tolerate milk formula. See http://tinyurl.com/oubo3uf for more info. ...Read more

Puedo quedar embarazada si tuve relaciones 7 dias antes de mi periodo? Soy irregular

Puedo quedar embarazada si tuve relaciones 7 dias antes de mi periodo? Soy irregular

Claro que si: pero si la regla es muy irregular, no puede predecir cuando viene la menstruacion cada mes. Chequea con la prueba para embarazada si no tiene regla por un mes, y si es negativo, otra vez en 2 semanas despues. Es mejor que protege con un methodo de contracepcion como la inyeccion, la Mirena (depositivo) o la pildora si no quisiera embarazada. Gracias por confiar en HealthTap. ...Read more

Ready to use formula that was opened last monday (soy) and it wasn't thrown away and the sitter gave him less then an ounce is he going to get sick?

Ready to use formula that was opened last monday (soy) and it wasn't thrown away and the sitter gave him less then an ounce is he going to get sick?

Don't use: Rtf formula is only good for 48 hours after opening. Sounds like the sitter made an honest mistake. He had a small amount and one time only, so you may dodge any problems. It could happen for him to develop gastrointestinal symptoms. If so, let your pediatrician know what happened so they can do appropriate stool tests. ...Read more

Hi Odds No! Why?: There is lots of marketing about ?$ to produce processed plant stuff.

Which has less gmo contamination--soy or corn?

Which has less gmo contamination--soy or corn?

Corn-both likely GMO: In 2011 88% of the us corn crop was gmo while 94% of the soy crop was gmo. It is reasonable to presume that virtually all products containing corn and soy as long as their oils, corn syrup, soy protein etc. Are gmo unless labeled organic. Gmo corn and soy have not been proven safe. See http://www.Nongmoproject.Org/learn-more/what-is-gmo/ and http://drrandybaker.Com/2013/04/22/organic-food-diet/. ...Read more
