Is soy safe during pregnancy? Should i avoid anything with soy, like soybean oil, soy sauce, & soy lecithin? Read that estrogen in soy can affect baby

Is soy safe during pregnancy? Should i avoid anything with soy, like soybean oil, soy sauce, & soy lecithin? Read that estrogen in soy can affect baby

Soy is ok: Too much can be a problem like anything else. It is best to read labels and look for non gmo soy (90% is genetically engineered). Soy can have estrogenic affects. It is better to avoid if you know you have a boy. If youdo not know the sex, be sensible...Read labels and do not overdo. You do not need to avoid everything with soy. ...Read more

Are roasted almonds carcinogenic?

Are roasted almonds carcinogenic?

Don't Roast: Almonds & other nuts, when roasted, are usually roasted in oil. Most often these oils are high in a fatty acid called linoleic acid (LA). LA favors inflammation. In a patient with cancer LA helps the cancer grow. LA is metabolized to omega-6 fatty acids which are far too high in the American public. Acrylamide and asparinine in roasted nuts is of concern re cancer production. Go raw. ...Read more

I am allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut. Could I have a protein intolerance?

I am  allergic to chicken, pork, beef, clam, egg, soy, barley, oat, cashew, brazil nut, and english walnut.  Could I have a protein intolerance?

What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read more

Ingredients: potato powder, potato starch, modified food starch, vegetable oil. Is it healthy?

REALLY UNHEALTHY!!!: This is recipe for disaster. Potatoes are in the environmental working group's dirty dozen foods-they're high in pesticides if not organic & are readily converted to sugar so raise blood sugar, causing weight gain & increased risk of diabetes. Generic "vegetable oil" is almost certainly corn, soy or canola which are all gmo if not organic & very toxic, fried potatoes have carcinogenic acrylamides. ...Read more

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

Fresh but celebrate!: I believe in fresh fruits&veggies/shopping in the periphery of the store. However, if you have a family recipe or something that you use once per year and it's canned pie mix, go for it! Generally speaking - fresh/single ingredients are better than mixtures/processed foods since you know more about what you're mixing with the single ingredients. We can definitely discuss more about sugars, etc. ...Read more

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

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?

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
