Is soybean oil the same as soybeans in which it would be bad to eat if you have kidney stones?

Is soybean oil the same as soybeans in which it would be bad to eat if you have kidney stones?

Oxalate: Oxalate is the culprit in beans; the solid soy bean has more oxalate than soy oil, for sure; so eating soy beans will more likely increase stone potential compared to soy oil, which you may use in cooking or on a salad. The oxalate rich foods are: beets, spinach, rhubarb, strawberries, nuts, chocolate, tea, wheat bran, and all dry beans; minimize these; drink 3-4 liters fluid per day; ...Read more

Is there a formula milk for babies with out soy based, soy lecithin, soy bean oil?

Is there a formula milk for babies with out soy based, soy lecithin, soy bean oil?

Absolutely: Alimentum and nutramigen are the first two that are readily available that come to mind. They are a bit more expensive, but very easy to digest and no soy anything. They don't taste as good, so if the baby scoffs at eating them, can put one drop of vanilla in the entire bottle to flavor. ...Read more

Depends: Other than allergies to soy, one problem is that too much soy may affect the thyroid by exerting phytoestrogen effects. That means estrogen like effects in addition to competing with the thyroid for binding sites leading to low thyroid function. Also, the issue of gmo may be a health concern for some. ...Read more

I was wondering is flaxseed oil good or bad for you?

Food choices have much less impact on your overall health than does staying physically fit, eating a sensible and balanced diet, avoiding tobacco and illegal drugs, using alcohol wisely if at all, and learning good living skills and working hard. You're right to care about your health, but the key's not on the dinner plate. ...Read more
