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)

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.Read more ›
