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)

Learning how the soy industry was essentially invented to get the public to pay for indigestible waste products that industry didn't want to keep paying to throw out was seriously eye opening and infuriating. The author does an excellent job with her subject - she's not a wonton muck-raker or overly dramatic, but she does a great job of actually researching and shining light on the realities behind a lot of marketing hype that so many of us have been raised on.
Absolutely worth reading for everyone.
Would recommend it to the whole nation.
Nobody seems to understand this today, as "betwen 77 and 79 perecent of vegetable oils comsumed in America come from the soy bean" (yes, this still means it's a trans fat!) and the chemical methods used to prepare non-traditional soy foods--everything from lechithin to fake hot dogs to soy milk-- have made this food a dangerous allergen, stomach irritant, gas producer and, worst of all, an absolute danger to infants.
So while the soy industry and those who advocate a plant-based diet continue to stand by soy as a healthy alternative to meat, "The Whole Soy Story" effectively demonstrates there's still quite a bit of light to shed on the subject. It seems other governments around the world, including Israel and France, are now putting warning labels on soy products, so it's time for Americans to wake up to the evidence that's out there. If you're going to eat soy, stick to the traditional kinds. Otherwise, it's nothing more than processed junk, even if it's sold in health food stores.
