Soy-Grains-Missing DietMissing soy and whole grains versus nutrient deficiency case study

Soy’s reputation as a healthy food

Whole grain’s reputation as a healthy food

Trends, fads and misinformation contribute to many food choices.

  • I am not saying there is nothing to trends and fads in relation to food choices and nutrient deficiencies. Usually these trends or fads come and/or go because of some facts and research or even the occurrence of one or more health problems.
  • I recall in the late 1980’s and early 90’s, as women we were told to eat more soy to balance our hormones. Then the trend gradually turned on soy and we are now encouraged to stay away from soy. We are now told that soy can raise our risk of breast cancer and other hormonal based cancers. Supposedly soy can cause all sorts of health problems.
  • Historically whole grain products are the best way to eat grain. Now ‘gluten free’ is popular because of the rise in diagnosis of Celiac Disease. Celiac Disease is a condition in which gluten damages the lining of the small intestine. This damage prevents the absorption of nutrients that are important for good health. Typically gluten is in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. You can be gluten intolerant without having full blown Celiac Disease.
  • Then there is the GMO factor about soy and grains. A huge percentage of soy and grains are grown as genetically modified. The jury is still out on whether GMO products are safe for human consumption. As for me I do attempt to stay away from genetically modified food as much as possible.

Should soy and whole grains be a staple in our food supply?

Soy and whole grains have been safe to consume for centuries

Despite all the negative press about soy, since 1999, most experiments have concluded that consumption of soybean products and components are not harmful.

Many countries still consider soy and whole grains staple foods

Studies have shown positive effects in human health. Recommendations from the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (released by the USDA and United States Department of Health and Human Services, January 2011) recommend soy-based products as part of a healthy diet.

Soy-Whole Grains-ChainOfLifeKey problem with soy and whole grain foods

In our modern world processing removes the nutritious parts of soy and grains that provide essential:

Key benefits of “good fats” found in soy and whole grains

  • More energy and better adrenal function
  • Normal growth and development for infants and children
  • Healthier and more flexible cell membranes allowing them to take on nutrients and release toxins
  • Cells can be starved and nutrient deficient without these “good fats”
  • Cells can be constipated and toxic without these “good fats”
  • Better cardiovascular function
  • Slowing of tumor growth
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Easing of joint and other pain

Soy-Grains-Healthy CellsBack to the case of the missing soy and whole grains versus nutrient deficiency.

“Chronic fatigue” studies in the mid 1950’s proved there is a connection to between nutrient deficient diseases and the missing soy and whole grain ‘good fats’.

Has the overuse of soy in processed foods given soy’s reputation a bad rap?

Yes, soy is essential to good health but not in the overly processed form.

Has the ‘gluten free’ trend given whole grains a bad rap?

Yes, whole grains are essential to good health but in moderation.

We must not allow the latest trend or fad to cause us to totally eliminate an important food group.

Thank you for another very informative article Pat.  Processing is the culprit of so many alterations in our food sources…. I am using the 'one food' rule as much as possible and no processing!  Eat whole food that I prepare!!   Hope I can keep it up!

Great plan, Cheryl. I very, very seldom purchase any packaged foods. I prepare most foods from scratch, mainly small servings of meat, fresh fruits, veggies and supplementation to fill the gaps. You can keep it up for the most part and be healthier for it.

Thanks for you comment.

As always Pat this is a very informative article! I was concerned particularly of soy, but I've noticed this hype slowing down. Although, people can get very confused about the abundance of soy used in packaged foods and the good soy that should be used in moderation in our diet. Excellent article!

Hi Gilly,

Thanks for your comment. Yes, there is a great amount of soy used in packaged foods which is mostly from GMO soy and hydrongenated. It is difficult to sort the hype from the good so many people are confused.

Happy to have you as a reader.

It is frustrating to see what the food processors are doing to healthy foods. Continue spreading the news, Pat. You are doing a very good thing!

Thank you, Norma.

It does seem that the more the food industry gets into the almighty $$, the more unhealthy our food supply gets.

Education, education, education!

I don't eat soy nor whole wheat as part of my almost raw vegan diet. Soy has been linked to GMO so I stay away.

Hi Veronica,

You are right to be cautious of soy and grains because so much is grown GMO. That is the reason I get those important lipids and sterols that are essential to healthy cells from supplementation from NeoLife. NeoLife does not compromised any of their products by using raw materials that are grown GMO. I’ve never seen them compromise the quality of the supplements in the 29+ years I’ve worked with them. I totally trust them to provide absolute top quality.

Please be aware of important nutrients from foods other than vegetables. Leaving out important fats and proteins can compromise your health. It takes a great deal of effort to make sure you get all those important lipids, sterols and proteins.

Blessings to your good health.

Pat

Having a balanced diet is very important. There is so much misleading information that it can be hard to know which direction to always go. Thank you for sharing such great nutirtional information to help guise us in proper nutritional decisions. There is so much to learn.

Hi Meryl,

You are right, eating a balanced diet is very important. Choices of whole, unprocessed, unrefined food help with that balanced diet. Beyond that we have to arm ourselves with information from reliable sources and always be willing to learn about the latest research, etc. In all my years of working with NeoLife, I’ve never experienced even one bit of misleading information or inferior products. That is 29+ years now.

I appreciate your supportive comment.

Pat

I wish the experts would agree about soy. I use it, eat it and get nervous when a report says its not good for us. Appreciated your input.

Hi Roslyn,

Yes, this whole thing about soy is enough to make anyone nervous. I have used the NeoLife products that have soy with confidence because I trust the research that has proven itself over the years with our products. Now I do not trust much of the soy that is used in many of the processed foods. So I eat whole unprocessed food as much as possible and supplement with the NeoLife products that have proven themselves over the past 56 years.

Thanks for reading.

Pat

Hi Terressa,

Confusion is everywhere when it comes to what we need to do to keep our bodies on the healthy side. Yes, knowledge is key. Hopefully I am helping to clear up some of that confusing information. I do my best to share from experience and reliable sources.

Thanks for you comment.
