9. Not a Natural Source of Estrogen

Again, many women are encouraged to consume soy milk because it contains plant estrogens called phytoestrogens. Unfortunately, for women of child bearing years, this unnatural source of estrogen confuses the body and disrupts the endocrine system. This can lead to breast cancer, irregular periods, and infertility.

 

10. Filled with Unwanted Ingredients

Have you ever taken a look at a typical label on commercially made soy milk? You might think that this type of milk is “completely natural” but here are the ingredients in a typical container:

  • Soy Milk (Whole soybeans and filtered water)
  • Cane sugar
  • Salt
  • Carrageenan
  • Natural flavors (which are not natural but artificial flavors)
  • Calcium carbonate
  • Vitamin A palmitate
  • Vitamin D2
  • Vitamin B2
  • Vitamin B12

Many scientific studies have found that carrageenan often causes gastrointestinal distress such as inflammation, lesions, ulcers, even colon cancer in studies done with lab animals. The American Diabetes Association has linked carrageenan to glucose intolerance and insulin resistance.
