The most common allergies are Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Soy, Tree Nuts, Fish,
Shellfish, and Wheat. Proteins in these eight major foods are estimated to
cause 90 percent of the allergic reactions in the United States.
The realization that Gregg had developed a soy allergy sparked a long-term research
effort looking into soy, with Gregg scrutinizing the proof behind many of the soy
boosters' claims. What she found was a bombshell: far from a "super food," there is
substantial evidence showing soy could actually cause a host of health woes,
including early puberty, infertility, thyroid disease, increase of tumors in cancer
survivors, and osteoporosis. And the dangers are not limited to those with an
existing soy allergy.
Gregg discovered peer-reviewed research shows a variety of factors unique to soy
that could be to blame. Among them: Several naturally occurring compounds that
are toxic to humans and animals are present in soy. Called "anti-nutrients," these
toxins prevent the body from fully breaking down nutrients and target specific
organs, cells and enzyme pathways. The governments of Britain and New Zealand
were concerned enough about soy to issue official guidelines discouraging parents
from using soy formula unless recommended by a doctor.
In this heavily sourced yet eminently readable book, readers will also learn:
-- What peer-reviewed, published studies really say about soy's supposed and much
-- The aliases by which soy is known on ingredient lists, and the hidden financial basis
for its ubiquity in the food industry.
-- Research showing why parents should stop feeding infants soy formula, which can
disrupt reproductive development and increase allergy risks.
-- Alternative ingredients and soy-free recipes that taste great.
-- Compelling testimonies from others affected by soy-and how they kept it out of

I was able to determine my allergy to
soy after 10 minutes of ingesting a
soy protein drink.
That was 2 weeks after I spent 4
days in the intensive care unit and
doctors diagnosed food poisoning!
