Why is Soy Lecithin in EVERYTHING???
Soy has been touted as a miracle health food but it really isn't.  It interferes with hormones and has an estrogen mimicking compounds.  For any man reading this, it lowers testosterone, sperm counts and lowered libido!  Think what that could do to a developing male. The more you look at ingredients the more you see that soy or soy lecithin is in EVERYTHING.  I started to do more reading and research and it may shock you how soy entered our food supply both blatantly and hidden.  Originally the Soy bean was never considered a food product, the ancient Chinese considered soybeans inedible! When it did enter America after thousands of years it was slow to take on and the soy industry went to great lengths to promote its use in everything and the farmers were incentivized to grow soybeans! Henry Ford found soybeans so interesting he even made a car from it!  Already sounding like something we should be eating?

Looking at my "vegetable" oil a little closer, it is made of Soybean Oil! The marinades, the salad dressings, the protein bars, just look it is in EVERYTHING.  The Lecithin I have discovered is really a WASTE PRODUCT extracted by CHEMICALS from creating "soybean oil" and can act as an thickener and its in tons and tons of processed foods!

Wikipedia says: Lecithin is a generic term to designate any group of yellow-brownish fatty substances occurring in animal and plant tissues composed of phosphoric acid, choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids (e.g., phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and phosphatidylinositol).

YUMM doesn't that sound appealing.  Back to GOOD food and avoiding SOY based products. Living healthy is so important so we all do our best to eat GOOD food and real food.  I FINALLY found a delicious protein bar that has NO SOY in it and its only 160 calories for 20 grams of protein -whey protein.  I need more than 3 eggs to get close to that calorically and that's only 150ish grams of protein!  Check out some good resources for Quest bars and the whole SOY story!

Do your research and learn what Soy is doing to humans!  93% of Soy is genetically modified on top of its draw back in its organic form from thyroid issues to many other things. This is a fantastic read, you can download a big chunk of it for free to read: Click Here
