Missing 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.
Key problem with soy and whole grain foods
In our modern world processing removes the nutritious parts of soy and grains that provide essential:
- “Good fats” called lipids and sterols
- Vitamins and minerals
- Protein and enzymes
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
“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.
Here is the best way to benefit from the important lipids and sterols (good fats) from soy and grains.
High consumption of grain and legume foods, such as wheat, rice and soy is one of the major causes of obesity … Just say “No” to a ‘high carb – low fat’ diet!
