Soy Allergy Awareness  
by M
allergies, yet it doesn’t seem to receive nearly as much attention as it should.  A food
that in some way shape or form is in nearly all prepackaged processed foods, despite
it’s increasingly growing numbers of those being diagnosed.  Just like the late Rodney
Daingerfield, “this allergy gets no respect”, but why?

For starters look what it’s up against.  Name one other allergen that’s marketed as
some sort of wonder food by nutritionists and advertisers alike.  It’s even marked as
a healthy replacement for another popular allergen, dairy, despite being a very
serious allergen in it’s own right.  There are hundreds of products marketed as
“gluten free”, yet I can count all those marketed as “soy free” on one hand.  The soy
industry is so enormous and profitable, and its product so widely used for so many
different applications, that only one other food can challenge it as being more
diversely used; corn.

Isn’t it ironic that for such a supposedly “healthy” food, the products that use soy so
readily are absolutely NOT healthy?  If your diet is high in prepackage precooked
ready-to-eat meals, if the grocery store aisles you do most of your food shopping
down are the cereal aisle, the snack aisle, and the freezer aisles, if you eat out
frequently then your consuming soy in every bight.  It’s the oil used for frying
(vegetable oil), it’s the preservatives, additives, and fillers used in all processed foods,
and this association makes it a part of some of the biggest causes of death in this
country; obesity, heart disease, and high cholesterol.  This is soy, the “wonder
food”.  It’s no wonder a blind eye is turned to such a serious allergen.  Money trumps
all, and there’s obviously plenty of it to be made with this bean.

So what if anything can be done change this way of thinking?  What can be done to
shed a light on such an overlooked allergy?  It takes people like me, like you, or
anyone who suffers from the excruciating sometimes-unbearable pain caused by this
allergy.  It takes the voices of many to stop such deep pockets, and all they buy.  
The truth is though your health is in your hands, so take control.  A healthy diet rich
in fresh organic produce, organic whole grains, and other minimally processed organic
foods will not only provide you a soy free diet, but will put you in the best health of
your life.  So what are you waiting for, eat soy free!

Living with allergies can be difficult, some harder than others. Being allergic to both
soy and dairy, I know this first hand. So with the hopes of educating others, I have
created a very informative blog with a focus on living
, while
maintaining a healthy diet. My belief in natural healing and natural cures is the driving
force behind my desire to be as healthy as I can be...body and mind.  
Allergies are becoming more and
more of a hot topic these days,
especially food allergies.  Just about
any type of food you can think of can
be an allergen, from some of the
most feared, peanut and seafood, to
some of the lesser known, broccoli
and bananas.  From a dairy allergy,
one of the fastest growing allergies,
to a gluten allergy, one of the most
widely recognized by food
manufacturers, there’s no denying
food allergies are quickly becoming an
epidemic in this country.  Then there’s
soy, a food that holds a place on the
list of the 8 most common food
