I’ve been avoiding (at least I thought I was) soy since I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2001. However, soy is in ALL processed foods, usually as soy lecithin. Soy is known to cause trouble for the thyroid, and 95% of soy grown in the US is genetically modified, meaning it has Round Up poison and the Bt toxin added to its DNA. So when you consume soy, you are consuming weed killer and toxins that are now part of these plants. No wonder we are all fat and sick. Go check your labels, you will be very surprised.
Soybean lecithin comes from sludge left after crude soy oil goes through a “degumming” process. It is a waste product containing solvents and pesticides and has a consistency ranging from a gummy fluid to a plastic solid. (http://preventdisease.com/news/09/073009_soy_lecithin.shtml)
