Boys on Soy Formula

Soy infant formula should only be used as a last resort, says the Israeli Health Ministry, French Food Agency, German Institute of Risk Assessment, British Dietetic Association and other government health organizations around the world.

As far back as 1999, warnings about soy and infant formula have rocked our world. In this shocking letter, two FDA toxicology experts officially protest their agency’s decision to grant soy a health claim. “We oppose this health claim,” the researchers write, “because there is abundant evidence that some of the isoflavones found in soy…demonstrate toxicity in estrogen-sensitive tissues and in the thyroid.” If soy infant formula provides the hormonal equivalent of three to five birth control pills per day, what happens to our boys on soy formula?
