Editorial Reviews

Review

Anyone in America who is interested in safe, healthy nutrition must come to terms with Dr. Kaayla T. Daniel's The Whole Soy Story. This book is a gauntlet thrown at the feet of the soy industry, whose reputation often seems based as much on self-promotion as science. Well-written, authoritative and accessible to the layperson, this is science writing at its best. (Larry Dossey, MD, Author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words)

Dr. Daniel's book contains everything you ever wanted to know about soy and much, much more and will make you wonder just why our nation, our bodies and our children are not being properly protected. Soy is just one more example of risks to the public that far outweigh the greedy benefits derived by big business and politicians. It is another serious wake-up call. (Doris J. Rapp, MD www.drrapp.com, Author of Our Toxic World, A Wake Up Call:How Chemicals Damage Our Bodies, Brains, Behavior and Sex.)

The Whole Soy Story is a devastating and authoritative indictment of the safety of soy foods and a "must read" for consumers who are under the misconception that soy foods promote health. Convincingly argued and extensively supported by the medical and scientific literature, it exposes the misleading propaganda of the soy industry in promoting the supposed benefits of this inferior food. (Kilmer McCully, MD, Author of The Homocysteine Revolution and The Heart Revolution)

Bravo to Kaayla for digging up the whole story on soy and telling the truth. (Debra Lynn Dadd, Author of Home Safe Home)

Kaayla Daniel exposes soy for what it is, a substance that, when processed, packaged and marketed by unscrupulous companies—not to mention overconsumed by the public—becomes a harmone-disrupting drug capable of causing a host of health problems, including thyroid conditions. In The Whole Soy Story, Kaayla Daniel dismantles the marketing mythology that sells soy as a health food, replacing it with the fascinating, well-researched and fully referenced truth about soy's very real health dangers. (Mary J. Shomon, Thyroid patient advocate, author of the bestselling Living Well With Hypothyrodisim:What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You...That You)

Kaayla Daniel blows the lid off nutritional dogma. Soy is NOT a miracle food. (Dr. Joseph Mercola)

This is the most important nutritional book of the decade. Every concerned American should read this brilliant and entertaining exposé. (William Campbell Douglass II, Author of The Milk Book and editor of Real Health Breakthroughs)

There is a disturbing number of safety issues surrounding soy that have yet to be resolved. Dr. Kaayla Daniel begins an important dialogue. (Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, HNC, FAAN Director, Holistic Nursing Consultants, Santa Fe, NM, Holistic Nursing Consultants, Santa Fe, NM, and author of Florence)

Format: Hardcover
One of the most interesting facts I find about people today is they don't use common sense. We all know that orange juice is good for you, it has vitamin C. But orange juice consumed by the gallon daily is NOT GOOD for you. So if someone consumes a gallon of orange juice everyday and becomes diabetic, does this imply that orange juice is evil and has no merits? Overdoing anything, even the best nutrient, and you can overdose.

As a Chinese, and still eating Chinese food 90% of the time, no one in our family overdoses on soy. We drink 16 oz of soymilk at the most per day. Fresh soybeans (edamame), only a handful twice a week. Fresh tofu, freshly fried tofu, miso, tempeh, real fermented soy sauce, fermented soybean pastes, are consumed in larger quantities. But we never eat soy alone. And we don't have these strange soy hotdogs, soy burgers, soy powders, soy shakes, engineered soy products.

Babies are never fed soymilk. As soon as babies can start eating food, they are fed fresh silken tofu, as it is an easily digested protein. But tofu is never the only source of protein. Small amounts of ground meat, milk and regular food are fed to babies.

As for adults, tofu will always be eaten with eggs, or meat or fish in a meal. Never by itself. The same with soybeans, miso and soy sprouts and soy sauce, etc.

I believe that Chinese and Japanese have eaten this way for centuries. And because we consume mostly tofu and fermented soy products, you don't hear people having these kinds of problems. Soybeans are naturally high in trypsin. The process of fermentation and tofu making is what deactivates trypsin, and makes it safe for consumption. That is why soymilk and edamame are not eaten in large quantities.

As a former vegetarian who relied heavily upon commercial soy products, and suffered because of it, I loudly applaud this important, timely work! It is exhaustively researched and provides for the first time, a revealing glimpse into more industry greed at the expense of consumer's health. I suffered from a compromised Thyroid due to my reliance on Tofu, Soy Milk, and phony burgers to get me through the day. I suffered doubly, from the poor palatability of the products, as well as their hidden hormones. The resulting Thyroid complications, flatulence, and loss of libido caused much unnecessary suffering. I have studied about Soy independently, being a Pharmaceutical chemist, so am somewhat familiar with some of the problems associated with the modern processed varieties. However, I was unprepared and shocked by what I found out from this wonderful book. Being a scientist, I am very impressed with the research that went into it. The author makes it easy reading and humorous as well which helps one to get through the dark truths revealed. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the health of themselves and their loved ones. The current belief that processed Soy is somehow equated with health is just another example of how we are so often controlled by marketing hype.

The nutritional literature is littered with books extolling the virtures of soy and soy products. Unfortunately, most are based on hype, poor research and manipulated science. This book explores the history of soy, defines the various types of historical soy products and then proceeds to explore the science of soy and soy prooducts in great detail. I have found it to be a tremendous encyclopedia of knowledge concerning the subject. Having studied soy products for some years, Dr. Daniels taught me a considerable amount about soy. The sections on soy and cancer are especially valuable, since so many women have been convinced that soy products prevent breast cancers, when in fact, there is compelling evidence the opposite is true. I strongly recommend this book for all those interested in the truth about soy and soy products.

As a college student studying to be a veterinarian, I learned that there are good reasons why high quality animal feeds do not contain soy protein and even advertise themselves as "soyfree." Animals fed too much soy grow poorly, are prone to disease, show less frequent "mounting behavior," infertility, birth defects and even cancer. I never understood why this same food could be advertised as a "health food" for human animals. Common sense said "NO WAY" and I've seen a lotta poor health among the many veggies who eat soy, soy and more soy on campus. I was glad to find this book because it confirmed that my instincts were right and because it has satisfied my curiosity with good science. Don't think it's boring though. It has thousands of references in the back of the book yet is a surprisingly good read.

In Israel parents are now being warned not to give soy formula to babies and not to feed children up to age 18 soy more than 3 times per week. Adults are told to be cautious. But in America the FDA tells us this stuff is a health food. How can that be? Think what else the FDA has given us. "Safe" drugs like Vioxx that have killed people, excitotoxic sugar substitutes such as aspartame that cause neurological and brain damage. Why on earth should you believe the FDA when it tells us that soy stops heart disease? You shouldn't that's what. Nearly everything else you'll read about soy is provided by the people selling it to you . Big business - big profits -- big corruption -- big pulling the wool over the eyes of the public. It takes a big book to expose all this and this book is it.
