SOY AS A MALE CONTRACEPTIVE  –  OPRAH’S SOY MILK HABITKaayla T. Daniel, PhD – “In September of this year, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health presented evidence at the 63rd annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine showing that soy phytoestrogens can seriously lower a man’s sperm count. This is old news to Weston A. Price Foundation members. Over the years, we’ve often reported on research that links soy consumption to poor sperm quality, lower testosterone levels and sagging libidos. Dr. Chavarro and colleagues studied 100 men whose partners were having trouble getting pregnant. Semen analyses showed that the men with the highest levels of soy food intake-approximately a half serving per day-had 41 million sperm per milliliter fewer than men who did not consume any soy-that’s 41 million fewer sperm per milliliter on just one-half cup of soy food per day! The researchers used a questionnaire listing 15 soy-based foods to determine soy consumption over the preceding three months.” learn more

Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD – ” Oprah Winfrey’s announcement last month on Good Morning America that she “blew out” her thyroid brought much needed attention to the underreported epidemic of thyroid disorders in this country. Sadly, few commentators noted that Oprah’s consumption of soy milk and other soy products might have played a key role in the development of her thyroid problems. Oprah has told her viewers that she loves shakes made with soy milk and blueberries. She has applauded when guests such as Julia Roberts have talked about how much they “love” their soy milk. Unfortunately, soy can seriously damage the thyroid gland, most often causing hypo-thyroidism, with its symptoms of weight gain, leththargy, fatigue and malaise. In Oprah’s case, soy may have initially over stimulated her thyroid, causing a revved up metabolism and sleepless nights. With Hashimoto’s thyroiditis-the likeliest diagnosis for Oprah-it is quite common for someone’s thyroid gland to go hyper for a period before falling into the exhaustion of hypothyroidism.” learn more
